Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-60XBR950 60" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

KDF-60XBR950 Start up failure - Blinking Red Lights

About a 3.5 yr old set - $5000 new -- must press the door of the "2100U" when starting the set in order to get a picture -- get the Lightengine to go. Started with blinking light, swapped the "2100U", still blinking red on startup -- then pressed the door of the 2100U cavity and it came up normally. Tightened the plastic screw on the door securing the 2100U light and it started up for awhile in a normal manner. Now - about 6 weeks later - I have to put some pressure on the door near the screw to get it to come up. If it's a fuse -- is the replacement cost $900? How did that one guy with a similar prob get a brand new XBR for the cost of the repairs - where was that?

Anytime you put pressure on something to get it to work is not a fuse but a bad connection. in this case sounds like the door triggers a switch....maybe you can just bypass the switch. or you need a new door housing assembly. good luck
