Question about Sony Grand WEGA KF50WE610 50" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

TV won't power on - no picture

My LCD rear screen projector TV won't start. I get a "start-up" clicking noise and the flashing green LED, but nothing else happens. Ultimately the LED goes to red and I have nothing but a black screen. I've unplugged and tried to find a reset switch, but haven't had any luck. Need help.

I have a Sony KDF-60XS955 tv. It won't power on,

I have that manual. There are three lights to the left of the power button. One is labled LAMP. The manual states "The projection lamp, which illuminates the picture, has a limited life. If the screen becomes dark, the color looks unusual, or the LAMP indicator on the front of the LCD projector TV flashes, it is time to replace the lamp with a new one (not supplied). Use a Sony XL-2200 replacement lamp (not supplied) for replacement. Use of any other lamp may damage the LCD projection TV." I also found in a different page " LAMP LED lights up in red when the lamp for the light source has burnt out." I guess burnt out would be extream. I found one other if you had opened the light bulb cover and didn't close it properly. " If the lamp cover is not reattached securely, the self-diagnostic function may be triggered and the POWER/STANDBY indicator flashes three times." You can down the sony manual at

I have a panasonic projection TV, PT-60C13 that will not turn on. Upon pressing the power on button, the button flashes green many times, then flashes red five time then one orange flash. This red/orange...


The most common cause of Panasonic Rear Projection LCD TVs not starting is bulb failure. The PT-60LC13 users manual gives some help in translating the LEDs on the front of the TV.

If the TV worked normally for a period of time (months or years) and won't start, the most likely cause is bulb failure. There is no way to measure the bulb, sometimes the bulb is visibly damaged when it fails. Remove the Lamp Assembly and look at the bulb.

If there was an On-Screen Lamp Replace warning and TV won't start, bulb has failed.

The first step with all Panasonic Rear Projection TV "No Picture" problems is bulb replacement. If that does not remedy the problem, get a technician, there are no user serviceable parts. Guessing if the ballast, power supply, controller board or optical engine is faulty is not practical.

The Panasonic Lamp Gallery shows all Panasonic models and Lamp Numbers. There is also a link to Panasonic DIY bulb and lamp replacement.

Check the Lamp if no picture, audio may be present. Screen is completely dark. Lamp LED flashes 2X every 5 seconds, Power LED flashes GREEN for 140 seconds then flashes RED.
Check the ballast if no picture, audio may be present. Screen is completely dark. Lamp LED flashes 3X every 5 seconds, Power LED flashes GREEN for 140 seconds then flashes RED.

NO picture or sound.  The red power light goes on and the green lights inside of tv are on. but nothing is working on the screen

You have a problem with the high voltage section that drive the projectors. Look in the back to see if the three projectors are lit. Then we go from there.
