Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-55XS955 55" Rear Projection HDTV
All of the sudden, our TV screen went dark (but still seemed to be somewhat lit....like 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.
