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

1 Answer

My tv screen goes blank, sound turns off, and standby lamp blinks

After doing some research on the web concerning sony blink codes, I found out how to activate the self check screen. It indicated that it had a lamp driver error and a LowB-ERR. How do I repair this problem or is this something that is even repairable?

    After watching tv the screen blanks out and sound is gone. It will go in and out after a couple minutes. When turned off and back on power button blinks red 5 times. Turn it off and on again and it starts back up. What is the whole sony secret codes- Service center will not help. We had the tv go out a year ago - Power button blinked 6x -tech new it was the fuse (cost $7) took 4 mins to replace it and charged use a $200 service charge.

If your SONY shuts down and the Green Power Light flashes 35-38 times before the picture comes back on....the problem is the LAMP. You need to order a new bulb and replace your old one. I had the same problem and this fixed it. My Red Lamp Light never came on and Sony.com/support only wanted to schedule a service call for me. They claimed no knowledge of this fix. Replacing the bulb is a breeze

My Sony wega tv won't turn on goes into standby red light blinks 10 times then shuts off?


Look at the owner manual as the 10 blinks is a error code or Google the model number to locate that information--Sony error codes are general and often misleading.

I would if looking at the set inspect the lamp first.

TV turns off and standby light blinks. Blinks 3 times, pauses, blinks again 3 times.


Hi there,
Three blinks means technically 'B+ over voltage protection (OVP), unit goes to the standby mode then displays the 3 blink fault. This is also a problem in the power supply circuit, check T603 and R672.'
After a little more research i found this comment:

"Guys I have found the problem. (referring to T603 and R672) I have found mine anyway. When I replaced my projection lamp, I failed to push the lever all the way down, but this was not the problem, just something you need to be sure to check. The problem was the lamp door. This needs to be shut properly. I found another thread where a guy had tried the same thing. It worked. The door clicks hard at the end to set itself. This worked for me. Hope it helps you."

IMPORTANT: After you repair the unit, you MUST clear the values on this diagnostic screen. These codes do not reset themselves after the fault is corrected, so if you don't clear them, you'll be seeing "old" fault codes the next time you enter this screen. Clearing is done by going into the service mode (display, channel, 5, volume plus, then power ). Press 8 and Enter, which returns everything to the factory preset condition.


So my question is have you replaced the lamp?

Hope this helps

Replaced bulb on sony KDF-42WE655, When power turns on then turns off with 3 flashs of red light continuouis?


SD Tech,
With your kind permission if I may provide info...
3 times red light blinking shows that lamp cover has not been fixed in its place securely after lamp replacement.
Make sure lamp cover, its the first plastic cover that was removed to replace lamp, is back in its position properly then turn On tv.
This plastic lamp cover engages safety micro switch inside tv cabinet.

Sony wega kdf42we655 power led blinking red


If lamp light is on at tv front then replace lamp as existing lamp sounds dead/ broken.
Lamp replacement procedure would be written in user manual of tv.
And if lamp light is not on but standby light is blinking then let me know how many times it is blinking to find out problem cause as standby light blinking is an error code.

Picture & sound go on & off every sec, red light blinks 5 times


helloFive blinks - AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with the video. Check video out, Q705, 732, 761 and other components on the C board, also check Q218, 219, 220 on the A board. In addition, unit could be in IK blanking, try turning up screen slightly.

TV shut off while watching and won't come back on


It seems this is a self diagnostic function. the official sony codes are as follows

  • Five blinks - AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with the video. Check video out, Q705, 732, 761 and other components on the C board, also check Q218, 219, 220 on the A board. In addition, unit could be in IK blanking, try turning up screen slightly.
  • Six blinks - No Horizontal (H STOP), no raster, goes to the blinking self-diagnosis function immediately. Check C515 & 516 and the jungle IC, IC206.
It sounds like you have a video input problem. Have you unhooked all inputs from the TV and tried to power it back on by itself? Hope this helps

Problem with tv turning on and off


Does the green light begin to flash when the picture disappears? If so, you have a weak lamp causing your TV to shutdown the picture. Replace the lamp with an original Sony lamp as the aftermarket lamps are known to have problems such as early failure and low brightness. Please be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!
