Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-42WE655 42" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Projection lamp casing melted.

We have the Sony Grand Wega KDF-42WE655. The TV went black & the lamp light was blinking, so we ordered a new lamp. When we received the new lamp & opened the front of the TV, we noticed the removable lamp cover & casing were melted. When we put the new lamp in the TV, it didn't work. Where can we go to get this cover & casing repalced?

    Same tv and same situation. Repairman came out as I saw Sony had put an extended warranty on this problem. Repairman said lamp was gone and the melting of the lamp access door was the cause because of over heating. Sony says it is unrepairable because they dont make the whole part. Long story short, many lawsuits and deals with Sony are current. Because I dont have an extra $800 to put into a tv-they offered me to buy a new tv from them for this price even after calling and writing etc. I just paid $2700 4 yrs ago. I did however take the offer for a reburbished 42 inch v series. Im still curious about this paper weight as to if a new lamp in it would work for even a short period of time... So tempting to try or at least give it to someone that wouldnt mind taking the chance and putting $200 for a new lamp in it and it not working...Good Luck!

    I had a repairman take the lamp out and said he saw melted parts. He did not replace the lamp but suggested maybe I need a new lamp. TV was getting dim and funny colors. Also red light kept blinking. I hesitate to buy a new lamp but don't know what else to do.

This will be covered covered under warranty by Sony. If you will call 800-282-2848 you can locate a Sony authorized servicer that should be able to repair this at n/c.

3x - Lamp switch not engaged

Sony Grand WEGA KDF-42WE655 42 in won't turn on

You can remove the lamp and look directly to the lamp and Anode. Check to see if the Anode busted or the Glass outside of the lamp if it seem to Cloudy. In that case you have a bad lamp.
Becareful with lamp door ,it has a safety switch.
