The most common cause of this is the access doors not being seated correctly. Please try and reopen and close all of the access doors. There are interlocks that need to be activated in order for the set to turn on.

Also, the indicator lights on the front should be blinking a code to indicate if the problem is the door, lamp or fan. Please post any lights that are present if the reseating does not resolve the problem.

Thanks,
Dan

Sony wega 55 inch tv turns on fine but after one minute tv shuts itself off and comes back on 40 seconds later by itself and this cycle continues - none of the error code lights blink


This kind of problem occurs when lamp becomes weak that means near to end of working life hours but still not dead nor broken.
Replacement of lamp in tv will solve your problem, lamp replacement procedure is easy and would be written in user manual.
Thanks.

Is it difficult to replace the lamp for the sony grand wega?


Its really easy. On the side of tv there is a small door that unlatches. Behind that is another door with a knob, turn counterclockwise and pull out. When you do that, you will see a pull tab for the lamb, push up then pull lamp out. Follow that in reverse to relace lamp. Be careful not to shake new lamp & make sure tv has been off and unplugged for at least 30 minutes. Hope this helps.

it can still be the lamp for some reason these sony tv's will exibit these symptoms when the lamps are getting weak. by the way when the lamp goes out the entire tv shuts off no video or audio, just to let you know.
