Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-50WE655 50" Rear Projection HDTV
Hey. I have a question about my TV set.
When we turn it on, it gets sound for about 3 seconds, then it turns off and the small red light on the front blinks rapidly for a few seconds. The image never appears on the TV (just sound) and it turns off shortly afterwards. Anything that you can tell me would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
I sounds like the projection bulb has failed. I think there is a red lamp on the front that lights up when the bulb fails however.
This sounds very similiar to what mine did when the bulb failed about 2 months ago. Once the buld fails the TV will shut itself down and keep doing that until the bulb is replaced.

Here's something that might also be useful. After you turn on the set, and get the regular red blinky lights, hold down the Device and Menu buttons together for about 5 seconds.
The Power light will start to flash in a two digit sequence.
For example, 3 flashes, then 7 flashes = 37.
Here are the error codes, and the corresponding problem:
12 = No error detected, check power supply.
32 = Lamp Cover is open.
33 = Air filter cover is open.
34 = Lamp abnormality
36 = Light Engine (DMD or Lamp Fan stopped)
37 = Exhaust or Lamp Ballast Fan stopped
38 = Lamp Temperature High
39 = DMD Temperature High
41 = Short is detected
44 = DVI cable between FMT and Engine disconnected
