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.

My Sony wega tv won't turn on goes into standby red light blinks 10 times then shuts off?


Look at the owner manual as the 10 blinks is a error code or Google the model number to locate that information--Sony error codes are general and often misleading.

I would if looking at the set inspect the lamp first.

TV WONT COME ON AND THE LIGHT KEEPS FLASHIN RED AN GREEN ON THE STANDBY BUTTON


  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

SONY HDTV-LCD MODEL - KDF-42WE655 turns itself off. Lamp light indicator flashes red. Should I attempt to reset ? It is approx. 4 years old


I'd wager that somewhere in the menu settings, there is a "Sleep Timer". Check the menu for the sleep timer, which turns off the TV after a set length of time. Also, check your remote, there might be a "Sleep" button that would do the same thing, press it multiple times until it reads "Sleep: Off" or something similar.

I try to turn my Sony Wega 42" Rear projection lcd tv on , but the power light goes once to green then blinks 3 times in a row, for a number of times before it just goes to red, when it shuts off...


I am posting here because I read the response the other person gave you.

Are you saying the set does not turn on and the red light blinks a sequence of three red blinks several times?

Confirm actual model number---3 red blinks is an error code---Get me Model number (KF50WE610?) and I will try to give you a simple answer---If it is what I think it is---3 blinks may have a easy repair that anyone can do.
