Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-42WE655 42" Rear Projection HDTV
I have a Sony Wega and when I try to turn the TV on, it goes to green, the fan starts, then it clicks again (within a few seconds) and the red light (power/standby) starts flashing. I replaced the bulb around 8 mos. ago and haven't done anything since that would cause the lamp door to open, but I will check that first. Any other ideas?
The Lamp being bad as well as one of the three fans in the unit not turning could also cause the problem.
Hope this helps,

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.
