Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-50WE655 50" Rear Projection HDTV
MY TV WILL TURN OFF ON ITS OWN THEN THE POWER LIGHT WILL BLINK 3 TIMES, IVE HEARD THAT THE REASON FOR THIS IS THE LAMP DOOR NOT BEING SECURELY ON, IS THIS TRUE?? I HAVE MADE SURE THE DOOR IS ON CORRECTLY AND IT IS SO CAN ANYONE THINK OF ANYTHING ELSE?? THANK YOU FOR ANY KIND OF HELP
In this set, I have had door switches go bad. They develop resistance in the switch, not allowing the TV to realize that the switch is completely closed. Also, the lamp doors do warp, and I believe the lamp door for this set is not available anymore because of the amount of warped doors that are out there.
If you know the lamp is good, and the door not warped/is securely in place, it is either the switch, or the protection circuit itself. Any competent repair shop should be able to track this down and assist you in repair.
Hope this helps...

Tips for a great answer:
The Standby/Power light of the TV blinks when there is any internal malfunction in the TV.
The self-diagnostic function of the projection TV will cause the STANDBY light to blink or flash when the television detects an issue. The number of times the STANDBY light flashes corresponds to a specific issue. As per the two examples below, some of the issues may be resolved without the need for service.
If the STANDBY light flashes three times in sequence, the lamp cover is not securely attached. Reattach the lamp cover to resolve this issue.
If the STANDBY light flashes four times in sequence, the TV may be overheating. To resolve this issue, ensure that the back of the TV is well ventilated.
If the flash sequence is not listed above or the light continues to flash, follow the steps below to perform a power reset:
Try the following steps to check if the issue can be resolved.
Turn off the television.
Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet.
If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.
If the issue continues to occur, service may be required.
Thanks for using Fixya.
