Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-60XS955 60" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

KDF-60XS955 recycles after a few hours of use

After few hours the TV goes into a recycle mode and the green light continues to flashes until the picture comes back on, this will continue to happen. If I shut the TV off completely and let it rest for a while I can watch TV for a few hours with no problem? I have read in the past that this is caused by the lamp and replacing the lamp will fix the problem, I am afaid if I spend the money on the bulb and this was not the problem.

Turn the tv on and the green light blinks and then turns off and comes back on then turns off again but the screen is black. What is wrong?


KDF 60XS955 intermittently turns off green light blinking then on after...
The frequency and color of the blinks will indicate the issue. There is a hold-down button sequence to try to backdoor your way into the set to see if the panel will light. You may have simply racked up too many "weird tuner faults" and need to reset it. My suspicion is that it's either that or bad panel backlight.

Unplug set, press and hold (on set) volume-down and channel-down and hold them while pluging in set. Will come on with "k" on screen, or will crash again if backlight bad. If it stays on, use your remote and arrow right then look for "fact init" and any other reset and turn them on. Arrow back up to "fact init" and hit enter. Let set recycle to green and unplug/re-plug in 5 seconds: the set should be in OOB state

Hi,

Most likely you have bulb failure. First step in troubleshooting is "Change the Lamp or Bulb". Lightning, power line bumps and collisions with vacuum cleaners can all shorten lamp life. Rough handling in shipment can also happen without your knowledge.

+90% of all Sony LCD Rear Projector "No Picture or Intermittent Picture" faults are related to bulb failure.

If new lamp does not improve the situation, then hands-on troubleshooting by someone that has parts and knows how the unit works is the only practical remedy.

While holding down the reset button on the remote
Press the power button on the tv
(The tv will turn itself off the back on)
Now release the reset button

It sounds like the lamp needs replaced.

Lost picture and sound


You likely have a bad lamp. The symptom you describe matches a weak or old lamp. When you first turn on the TV, the lamp is cold and doesn't draw much power. But old lamps usually have clouded reflectors, so the reflector doesn't reflect the light, it converts it into heat. The bulb overheats, draws more current than allowed, the TV "recycles", green light flashing and then the process starts over. Replace the lamp, use and original Sony lamp as the aftermarket lamps are known troublemakers. Please be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!
