Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-60XS955 60" Rear Projection HDTV
After turning it on for a minute or so it powers off, the red light never comes on though the green light starts flashing for 30 seconds or so then powers on again. The light for the lamp has never come on or flashed or anything so I do not believe it is the lamp.
The lamp light will not come on especially if it lights up during bootup from a cold start. The lamp only lights up on Sony when the lamp shatters in its housing and the system can't ignite the lamp from a cold startup, Sometimes it does'nt light up then. So if it lights when u first cut it on the sysem thinks its ok... But lets verify if the lamp is the problem.
With the tv off using your original remote, Press Display button-----channel 5 button----and Volume up button then Power button within 5 secs of pushing the first button, Screen should come on with a diagnostic screen, Look at the lamp driver option and see if its recorded any numbers to the right of it, if so then this is telling you that the lamp has stopped or tried to ignite that number of times..
Push the number 8 key then enter to reset the numbers back to zero.Turn off power now turn on the television and wait until it happens again, at this point go back to diagnostic as explained eariler and see what it has recorded. If it has recorded a 1 on the lamp driver then replace your lamp. Reminder: Once you have replaced the lamp go to diagnostic screen again and reset the numbers back to zero.
Hope this helps...Thank you
