Question about Sony KP-51WS500 51" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Turns Off By Itself

Sometimes, our tv will flash red and then the screen goes black but the volume is still on for another minute or so and then it turns off completely. If we leave it off for 5 minutes or so then it is fine again. It doesn't happen every day yet but is getting more often. We had the red bulb changed about 6 months ago. Any ideas? Thank you.

Mitsubishi big screet HDTV after being on for a minute, the scree pops and goes black with some red lines, then the volume turns all the way up by itself.

Do the self check----if set has been unplugged plug it in and turn on for it to fail----when it shuts off ON THE FRONT OF THE SET press and hold both the menu and input (device) buttons at same time for at least 5 seconds and release both.

Power light will blink a two digit error code like, 1 blink, 2 blinks and pause and repeat it for a total of 5 times.

What if any error code do you find?
