Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-55XS955 55" Rear Projection HDTV
The green on/off button flashes about 30 times when the picture goes off and then stays solid green when picture comes back on. The TV says it was manufactured in Aug 2005. I don't understand what is causing this. When it comes on, the picture looks normal and sounds normal. It stays on for approximately 10-20 seconds before it shuts down again. I don't believe it is a ventilation problem. It stands in a corner with about 3 feet of clearance. Please help!
You have a bad lamp. Sometimes when the lamp gets old, it doesn't fail and open like they usually do. Instead, the reflector gets cloudy, and instead of reflecting the light, it converts it into heat. As the lamp heats up, it draws more power, eventually to the point where the TV senses it drawing too much power and shuts down, going into a reset cycle. replace the lamp and use an original Sony lamp, as the aftermarket lamps are known trouble makers. Be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!
