Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-60WF655 60" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Tv turns off and on

I have a sony grand wega and after turning it on it will play for a few minutes and then turn itself on and off several times. The power light flashes green and then it turns back on and the sound follows a little later. I read two differant people having this problem and one response was the lamp and the other a thermal fuse. How can I tell which one needs to be replaced on my tv, My tv is about 4 years old and the lamp was replaced about 2 years ago but the lamp light turned red that time.

    Me too. I bought mine in Jan 07 and haven't had any problems. Then at 6:15pm today it started turning on & off. Now I can't watch TV at all and it's out of warranty so I'm assuming Sony's gonna charge an arm & a leg to repair it. But if lots of people have the same problem doesn't that mean it's a defect and Sony should cover the cost? It's not like I did anything to cause this. Unless it just needs a new bulb. But how can I be sure? I don't want to spend $200 on a bulb and still have this problem...

The first time my lamp needed replaced, the red light came on as well. This time my tv did the same thing, but after talking to my tv repair man he thought it was the lamp. He said that if you use your tv often then the lamp probaly needs to be changed after two or three years. I replacedmy bulb and it corrected the problem and I MUCH BETTER PICTURE.

Sony wega won't turn on


It sounds like it is the ballast. The ballast is what fires the lamp, if it is faulty, it will continue to blow out the lamp. The fan cooling could also be the issue but the TV will usually turn itself off if the fans are not spinning at the right speed.

TV Turns off and on


How long since the last time the bulb was replaced? It sounds like the bulb is overheating and triggering a safety shutdown.

It's probably in need of nothing more than a good cleaning (open it up, clean off the boards with a can of air) and *may* be time to replace the bulb.
