SOURCE: Sony KDF-55xs955 TV will not turn on. Red LED flashes 6 times.

This sounds so simple, but this is what i gathered from Sony's website. Sounds to me like it may be a service issue.

The STANDBY light will flash if the television detects an issue within the television. Some of these issues can be resolved simply by following the steps below to reset the television.
If the issue is still unresolved after following all of the troubleshooting steps, service may be required . Please note the number of times the STANDBY light flashes and relay that information to the service center.

  1. Turn off the television. IMPORTANT: For a projection television that uses an internal lamp, wait 5 minutes after turning off the television to allow the lamp to cool before continuing with the following steps.
  2. Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
  3. Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
  4. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet. NOTE: If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.
  5. Turn on the television.

The optical block is defective on your TV. Actually it's a Sony defect where the lamp door warps due to the heat. Sony issue an alert on this issue and will fix it until April It happens on these models 2003 Models: KF42WE610, KF50WE610, KF60WE610, KDF60XBR950, KDF70XBR950 2004 Models: KF42WE620, KF50WE620, KDF42WE655, KDF50WE655 They will fix it free of charge until March 31, 2009. So I will call them asap to get an authorized Sony repair person to look at it.
I would suggest to contact sony first and let them know about the defective optical block in your TV.
Good luck.

SOURCE: Sony Grand Wega 60 inch LCD Projection TV goes dark.

most likely, buy you a lamp and install it yourself, the owners manual tells you how to do this.

When you are in front of tv grasp the right side of the front grill and pull it off, the lamp door is right behind it. Unscrew the cover and remove it, you will need the allen wrench provided with the new lamp to remove the old lamp just unscrew it and pull it out.

I have a Sony Grand WEGA 3LCD HDTV. The picture and sound flashes off momentarily and then comes back on. The green light stays on. What could be the problem?


This could be a sign the lamp used for brightness is about to fail, a lot of them do this sort of thing just before lamp fails in a total way.

Constant blinking red "lamp" light.


those lamps may look good but can still be bad, they build a internal resistance and there get to the point where the tv will not come on at all.

Tv will not power up - makes a weird noise and red light blinks constantly.


It sounds like a bad lamp, a bad lamp driver or a combination of the two. Be aware that sometimes a bad lamp driver will blow a perfectly good lamp, so if you're not sure which is causing the problem, replacing BOTH would probably be the best course of action
