You have an open thermal fuse in the lamp housing. The fuse has an upgrade and is only accessible from the back of the TV>

    The fuse is wired into the bottom left under the housing for the lamp and can be seen only from the back of the TV after the fan and large metal plate are removed, after the back of the tv is off, of course. The new fuse is not sensitive to thermal cycles and will not fail unless the temp goes real high.

    I can send you a new fuse if you can get to the old one and remove it.

  • Paul Buscema Apr 21, 2009

  • Paul Buscema May 03, 2009

    I am not aware of any pictures. If you have found a new fuse, possibly I can help you through it??

The picture goes off, the power/standby light

Sony KDF-60XS955 picture goes and power/standby light light flashes


Most likely you have bulb failure. First step in troubleshooting is "Change the Lamp or Bulb". Lightning, power line bumps and collisions with vacuum cleaners can all shorten lamp life. Rough handling in shipment can also happen without your knowledge.

+90% of all Sony LCD Rear Projector "No Picture or Intermittent Picture" faults are related to bulb failure.

If new lamp does not improve the situation, then hands-on troubleshooting by someone that has parts and knows how the unit works is the only practical remedy.
