Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-50WE655 50" Rear Projection HDTV
While watching tv the other day, the unit unexpectedly went out, after which there was an unusual rapid metallic popping sound, similar to the sound one hears when turning on flourescent lights in an office (or wherever). The lamp indicator light on the front of the unit never lit up to indicate a bad lamp (shouldn't it do this before the lamp blows?). Now, when trying to turn the unit on, all we hear is the rapid popping sound -- there is no audio or video. I'm not sure if the lamp is busted, or the ballast. Any ideas? Is the rapid popping sound normal for a burnt out lamp?
I think i have the same problem, but i can get audio still. did the poping plinking sound come from the inside back panel of your TV? it sounded almost like a arc wielding noise?
