Question about Sony Grand WEGA KF42WE610 42" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
Hi i have a Sony Grand WEGA KF42WE610 42" and when i try and use it the screen/sound turns on and off every 30 or so seconds what could be worng?
If the television is plugged into a power strip
or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector
and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved,
the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the
Please make sure that the videos sources are connected properly to the TV.
Try Power Resetting the TV.
Please disconnect the power cord from the wall outlet (for approximately 1 minute), then reconnect the power cord and check whether the issue is resolved.
Also try connecting the TV to a different wall outlet and check if that helps.

Tips for a great answer:
If your Sony Wega will not turn on, the front green light blinks, you hear a faint whirring sound and the green light turns red and flashes, it probably means the lamp inside the set is no longer working. If you noticed the screen beginning to dim in the preceding days or weeks, this most likely is the cause.
If the green light flashes and the picture comes on momentarily but then goes off, and the green button flashes until the set restarts, then the seal around the lamp mount is loose and needs to be refitted.
If the picture on your Grand Wega cuts in and out and the green standby light flashes, both of the set's STKs need to be replaced. STKs are small chips on your television's circuit boards and are identifiable by their labels. The specific STKs used in your Grand Wega TV will be identifiable by the numbered labels on top of the STKs.
When you plug in your Sony Wega and hear a loud popping sound, it's probably caused by a defect in the high-voltage circuit. Let the professionals take care of this one.
If, after turning on your Sony Wega, you can hear your set but the screen is black, you most likely need to replace your projection lamp.
