Re: sony grand wega KDF-E50A10

The looks of the bulb are no indication that it's okay. How many hours of operation do you have on that bulb? The bulbs are average rated for 5000 hours, but its been my experience that they usually last on average 3000 hours. Try replacing the bulb and then check and rest the buld hours counter.. Best place I've found for purchasing the bulbs is DLP lampsource. They'll sell you just the bulb without the housing at a dramatic savings.
To display the lamp time press [ 2 ] nine times.
to reset press [ 3, mute, enter.] Or with the set in standby press [ display, 5, vol up, power ]
then press [ jump 3.]
Hope this helps!

Problem for Sony Grand WEGA KDF-55WF655. Hello,

5 times Red LED blinks means Lamp Driver Error. (KDF-55WF655)
2 possible reasons, either Lamp is gone or Ballast Supply got bad.
Replace lamp first, in most cases it solved the problem.
How old is this TV and did you replaced lamp recently?

KDF-E60A20 Going on and off by blinking lights

it works!! First i took off the front panel. Just check your manual for instructions, very easy to do. If you do not have a manual just down load one from google.. The instruction are easy to follow. The screw they have you loosen with a alan wrench is attached to the plastic, so you do not have to worry about dropping it inside the tv. Removing the lamp was simple. once out you will notice on either side are two small mesh screens. One of mine was 80% blocked with dust, the other side was only 30-40% covered. I used a vacuum to remove the blockage, i did not want the dust and dirt to go inside the bulb. i then cleaned all around the lamp. Reinstalled, and we are go to go. The kids are happy and i am happier since my wife not be buying a new TV.
total cost of repair $.00
time required to fix, less than 15 minutes.

Also when my TV was loosing sound and picture and then return. I did turn off my TV, then turned on. I nothiced a red blinking light. Mine flashed 5 times. After some reserch, 5 times is video related, bulb or video board. google red flashing light with the model you have and you will find what all the codes mean.
So if yours is flashing 5 times try the above, it might work for you and it is well worth the time before you call a tech and drops hundreds of dollars.

hope this helps.
