Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-42WE655 42" Rear Projection HDTV
My set is only 2 1/2 years old and when I turn it on it come on for an instance but then goes off and a red light on the front of the set blinks.Whats wrong?
After no success resetting the television and it still persists, I think you need to replace the projection lamp. I just replaced mine two weeks ago. If you check online, you'll see a number of different options and it's not that hard to do yourself. I would definately stick to an OEM part and by all means spend the extra money and get the entire plug in enclosure, not just the bulb, it's much easier.

If your Sony Wega will not turn on, the front green light blinks, you hear a faint whirring sound and the green light turns red and flashes, it probably means the lamp inside the set is no longer working. If you noticed the screen beginning to dim in the preceding days or weeks, this most likely is the cause.
If the green light flashes and the picture comes on momentarily but then goes off, and the green button flashes until the set restarts, then the seal around the lamp mount is loose and needs to be refitted.
If the picture on your Grand Wega cuts in and out and the green standby light flashes, both of the set's STKs need to be replaced. STKs are small chips on your television's circuit boards and are identifiable by their labels. The specific STKs used in your Grand Wega TV will be identifiable by the numbered labels on top of the STKs.
When you plug in your Sony Wega and hear a loud popping sound, it's probably caused by a defect in the high-voltage circuit. Let the professionals take care of this one.
If, after turning on your Sony Wega, you can hear your set but the screen is black, you most likely need to replace your projection lamp.
