Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-60XS955 60" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Turns on and off green LED flashes until TV turns back on.

Replaced bulb 6 months ago TV worked fine when problem first occured last week I pulled bub out and cleaned the screens on the top and bottom of bulb they were clogged. TV ran for several days with no problems and a great picture. Today back to same problem turns itself off then back on green LED blinking continously till TV turns back on. When TV first starts it sounds like two fans start then one turns off it appears to be the one that cools the bulb, the one in the back of the TV that cools the complete cavity and vents out the back keeps running fine.

    Exactly right this was the fix. I could see the difference in the reflectors from the old lamp to the new one the old had some haze I cleaned everything as best as I could prior to installing the new lamp. Thanks for the help.

This is a symptom of a bad lamp. for some reason it won't spit out a lamp error. shaking up the lamp will sometimes fix temporarily but you will find replacing to be the answer. if your tv has a fan error, you will get 4 red blinks.

    Hey no problem. On some models, not sure if yours is one, the lamp door will warp if the fan starts to clog. Look at the lamp door and see if it looks discolored or warped in any way. If so let me know, I'll help instruct you to clean the fan to premature failure. If not, you probably don't have to worry about it. Thanks for using Fixya.com

Sounds as though the system may have overheated. Do you regularly check the filters and clean them? An airduster can also help to blow dust out of hard to reach places.

The power comes on and then turns off and the front green power light blinks.


There is a small IC in the power supply section,
not the IC regulator that's the problem.

If picture quality is poor, be sure you aligned the bulb in the correct manner and be sure the cover for the bulb is not loose. Also, you might want to re check you picture setting as it might have gotten reset when you pulled the plug (I hope you pulled the plug when replacing the bulb).
Heres another solution (maybe temporary) to the problem of no picture and no sound for 30 seconds. I had my tv's power saving setting on "standard" before. After I switched it to "reduced", the problem was fixed. It has been almost two weeks without the problem. I think its a good fix until the new bulb comes in the mail.

TV Picture Goes Black


I had the same exact problem.
I removed the bulb and cleaned it. There is a small screen at the top of the bulb and it was covered with dust. Once it was cleaned I replaced the bulb and it solved the problem.
Thanks to those who posted the solutions

Progressive power up problem


Yeppers. Sounds like the standby power supply has a bad capacitor in it and the regulator Ic is defective. These parts should only be replaced by quilified technician as there is very high voltage inside these sets. Good Luck
