2 Answers

I have a Sony KDF-50WE655 that shuts the screen off after 3-4 minutes , the front light flashes green for a minute or so and then turns back on for 3-4 minutes. Is it over heating? How easy is it to fix?

Had the same problem. Did three things not sure which was it, but seems to be fine now.
1 - change batteries in remote control, weak batteries can cause erratic signals per sony's site
2 - unplug tv for 5 minutes for reset
3 - opened tv, pulled out lamp and removed dust, put lamp back

Chances are is the Lamp is bad. Call 1800-222-SONY and they can get you one ordered.
It is a very common thing to happen particularly if you have not replaced the lamp before. Average hour life of the lamp is 3000 hrs.
Hope this helps,

Green light flashes for about a minute, fan does not turn on and there is no picture or sound.


unplug all cords and cables from tv, then unplug tv, wait about 5 min, plug tv back in this resets, the "brain" if samething ....see if your bulb is glowing, or tv is hot to touch...always clean the breather slots or holes so fan can push or pull cool air..most of these tvs have a auto shut off for safety if fan has faulted out.....you might just have a DONE fan unit.

Tv turns on then after about 3-5 minutes shuts off and the green standby light flashes then afterabout 3-5 minutes tv turns back on


Most likely you need a new Lamp. This is a common symptom. I believe it is a XL2200 Lamp.
You could order it from Sony at 1800-222-SONY.
I hope this helps,
