Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-55XS955 55" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Same problem as this poster

All of the sudden, our TV screen went dark (but still seemed to be somewhat a dark blue screen). The TV show was audible, the sound was good, but no picture. The power/standby green light keeps flashing and I cannot change channels or get a picture. Even pressing the channel up and down button on the TV will not work, and the same channel keeps playing, but with no picture, but good sound.

I had a similar problem and it ended up being the bulb. The indicator light never lit up but after i replaced th bulb I checked to see how many hours where on the bulb and it was over 8100. they state the bulbs are only good for 6000. when i replaced it ($140 on ebay) everything was fine.

Sorry, but no. It seems that you got dead pixels on your screen. In this case would help only replacing the LCD, but its cost would be as big as the cost of the TV.
