Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-50WE655 50" Rear Projection HDTV

Sony WEGA Large Projection TV

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!

    Thanks. I believe our bulb did fail, but after a few weeks of letting it sit, we turned it back on and it worked. We decided to never turn it off, because the problem first occurred when we turned it off, and it wouldn't turn back on. After we decided to just leave it on and never turn it off, we had no problems. Until the power went out. Now, were just going to try and wait a few more weeks and pray that it decides to turn itself back on again. Hopefully, the power won't go out next time.

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.

Sony Grand WEGA KF50WE610 tv will not turn off


Problems that do not happen all the time are hard to find--2 things: if set blinks the red light try to count the blinks--usually that is an error code.

Also this set if it does for the most part work should have an error buffer.

With the set turned off and using the Sony remote:

Display

5

Volume down

power


If it has this when it comes on there will be a box in the middle of the screen with several items listed---all must have a zero to the right of them---if one has a number(any number) it means it has detected that error that number of times.

Let me know what you find

Sony wega kp51 turns on for 3 secs than off w/ blinking red light


The flashes are fault codes. It means your system is faulty. If it is intermittent then it is more than likely a dust issue. Buy an air duster, spray out the back and restart. Should be fine

If it continues to play up then it will be a repair job

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
