LCD TV Problem

I've had this TV, which is a Sony Wega 42 inch LCD projection for aboutfour years now. Just today while I was playing my Playstation 3, whichI've had for about two weeks, I lost the picture and sound. It returnedafter 30 seconds and continued to go and come back for the same amountof time every couple of minutes. I turned off the game to see if thatwas what was causing it, however it happened while the TV was on also.I left the TV off and unplugged it for a while. After turning it backon the problem eventually came back, sound and picture goes for about30 seconds then returns. It seems to get more frequent the longer theTV is on.
Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi thanks for the help. The model number of the TV is KF-42 WE620. How would I go about changing the lamp? Unfortunately I don't think I have the instruction manual.

(is not a general rule***) the video games tend to over heat the tv more than regular tv signal Just because this explanation: Same scene is in the same place for long period of time. BUT in reality the problem could come or could not because the game of course the tv can fail itself in the same way with its regular antenna .

bottom line: The lamp has to be replace.
refer to user's manual how to do this process. Prefer original sony lamp.

Hi,
Replace Lamp in TV and lamp replacement procedure would be written in Instruction Manual of TV.

Always buy Sony Original Lamp for smooth picture result and avoid aftermarket/ cheap lamps.

Let me know exact model number of TV if you need more help.

Sony Grand WEGA LCD with no picture


If this is the model I am thinking of, don't bother fixing it. Call up sony and they will should offer you an new sony bravia lcd tv. You can either get the free one or upgrade from the free one to a bigger one. I guess that there is some recall with the light engine and sony is giving out this offer. This happened to my grandma to her 42" grand wega. The ending result was that she got a 46" 120hz sony bravia tv for, if I remember right, $250. I hope that this helps. Good luck and happy new years!!!

Sony Grand Wega KDFE 42 10 = blue streaking


I called a repair company who said it would cost about $1100. to replace the optical block. Sony offered no help or solution and the comment was "all electronics will have problems in 3 years". We will buy a replacement after researching what we want/need.
Thanks for your input.
