Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-42WE655 42" Rear Projection HDTV

Open Question

Model No. KV-DB29M80 Serious colour & sound problem since day the set was installed. Sony technicians could not solve. Initial requests to replace were not heard by the representatives of Sony Service / Customer Care. Now they have taken back the TV Set. We as customer insist that the set should be replaced since it is inherently defective. It is a matter of customer satisfaction and reputation of Sony. C R Ghosh email: cr_ghosh@hotmail.com

red light blinks in 5 times then pause and then repeats. It is the lamp error. " Lamp Driver Defect"
When the "LAMP-PORT" (pin 95) is low, the lamp is not turned on. If the "LAMP-HV-DET"(pin 96) is low at the same time, it is classified as no high voltage of the lamp driver. I'm guessing it needs a Lamp driver which I think is on the C Board, which is part of the "Optics Unit Block Assy. The C Board cannot be orderd separately, and Optics Unit Blocks are not cheap. Good luck

I've seen this exact problem before and it was the lamp. Take it out (if in doubt) and look for glass fragments in the reflector. Even if the glass capsule isn't shattered, the bulb can still be bad. This is the easiest failure to visually confirm. A lamp should last between 2 to 3 years depending on the amount of daily use the TV gets. Should a bulb last less than two years the lamp cooling fans may need cleaned. Homes with a dust problem, smokers, pets and open windows are more prone to dust accumulation inside the TV. If you take the lamp out and see dust bunnies inside the lamp housing, the set should be cleaned and fans checked for dust deposits. Every six months or sooner vacuum the rear cover panel and area behind the entertainment furniture.

SOURCE: KDS-R60XBR2 power led blinks 4 times,

There are three fans the one that usually fails is located on top of the optical block and cannot be reached by the owner unless you take the set apart yourself. What is happening is that one of the fans are not spinning fast enough or has stopped altogether. The best solution is to replace all three fans cleaning may not be enough to get a slow fan up to speed, and the tech should blow out the dust in the duct work. This is what the tech coming out will (or should) be doing. Also some fans will have an intermittent startup, and cause this intermittently, so it is a good idea just to replace the fans instead of just cleaning them.

SOURCE: Sony - KP61XBR48. I need to know a model of the replacement Lamp

First of all, there are no lamps inside this set, there are CRTs. These are not just replaced as lamps would be. The CRTs themselves will run at leas $80 each. To change these will require replacing the coolant for the CRT as well which is not a DYI type of job. The coolant is dangerous and needs to be handled carefully. Also, once a CRT is replaced, a complete mechanical and electronic convergence adjustment must be made. There is a specific order in which to do this that is outlined in the service manual and it requires a template that would need to be purchased as well.

Unless there is a specific problem that needs to be addressed, it is unlikely that any of the CRTs needs to be replaced.

If you are having a problem with the set, can you please update this with a description of the problem? We should be able to assist in the resulution of the problem with something less drastic than CRT replacement.

Thanks,
Dan

Hi,im a technician and i got a problem with a Sony Trinitron Colour television model Kv-T29mn3. I replaced an Str, capacitors & Horizontal Output Transistor. Voltage output its okay but it keeps on...


These sets had alot of problems with bad FBT flyback tranfomers,You might need to change FBT.
Heres another thing they also had Bad Picture Tubes that will blow hori output and you will not know its the Tube untill you replace the FBT.Use a high voltage probe to monitor Voltage coming from the anode button, if you dont have a HVP then disconnect the CRT board and monitor set.

That model number is not correct. What is an EHT? Must mean HVT High voltage transformer. If this set is 26 inch or smaller replace it. If larger yes replace the transformer.

Sony KV-27FS100 does not respond to remote


Good day.

Maybe there are loose connections along the IC that supports the operation of your remote. This could also hamper initial set up operation of your unit. Also, check on loose connections along the power supply.

Sony Tv 29 Inchs, The Picture Keep Swiching off and replaced by fable shadowi pinky multi colour light


Your symptom description is a little vague. Is there sound? Is there a full screen? Assuming there is a full screen and sound I would look for bad solder joints on the boards. Particularly the CRT board but really just resolder all the connections in the set. The KV series has been plagued with more than their share of bad solder joints. Give this a try first and if this doesn't solve it give us a more detailed explanation of the problem. Good luck.
