Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-42WE655 42" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

I have the same problem.

According to numerouse websites, Sony was aware of this problem and continued to manufacture the TV.

The problem is the Optical Block, and very costly to repair ($1000-1500). Some websites offer remanufactured optical blocks, but even with that, the cost is still around $650.

Some sites also indicate a class-action lawsuit against Sony may be in the works.

TV fell off stand and Broke... I have been looking for days for a Replacement Screen can you help... PART# 180261311 on a Sony KDL-26M4000


According to Sony, this television has been discontinued - you must call in to inquire about the replacement part by calling their replacement customer service number at 1-800-488-SONY extension: 7669. Sony claims to offer replacement parts on discontinued items for up to seven years after the date of discontinuation.

If you don't want to deal with Sony's customer service department, you can order a replacement screen at PartStore.com by clicking this link: http://www.partstore.com/Part/Sony/Sony/180261311/New.aspx -- Please be aware that this part is EXPENSIVE; it might actually be worth it to contact Sony directly.

Sorry to hear about your television - it's always such a hassle to find and buy discontinued parts at a reasonable price. I hope that Sony offers you a good deal on a replacement!

I have a 55" sony


According to the manual (you can see it here) page 122 that describes 3 red flashing lights:

"The lamp cover is not attached securely. When you secure the lamp cover, the POWER / STANDBY light flashes in red and the LCD projection TV enters the standby mode (see page22)"

Page 22 says:

"... if the POWER / STANDBY light flashes continuously, this may indicate the display unit needs servicing..."


Most DLP displays make use of a "color wheel". These small motors spin at many thousands of RPM. They often begin to make scratching sounds when they are beginning to fail. Some manufacturers make it difficult to change yourself - and others make it pretty easy.

I hope this was at least a good starting point for you & good luck. Please rate my reply. Thank you.

I have a sony trinitron 27 in. model KV-27S45 1998 it will not turn on and the stand by timer is flasing 4 times dont know what to do


Hello
Vertical IC inside your Sony TV has damaged [shorted]. Four blinks of standby light denotes it. The number of blinks of standbylight in Sony denotes some fault, and can be determine according the the continueous blinks. In your case, the standby light will blink four times, then stop for a while and will continue to blink four times and so on. Vertical output IC should be replaced with same type and number. If you are aware in electronics and have tools, you yourself can do the work.

My Sony WEGA KP-FX432M91 TV LED blinking few times and then turned off please help me to solve this problem Regards Nima


You need a professional.
Stop using the TV until it is repaired.
Continue to use it and your problems will multiply and grow more expensive.
Call the manufacturer to find you nearest authorized service center.

Playstation 3 and plasma tv


yes it is, the only thing that you need to be aware of with plasmas is that you don't want an image to stay continually on the screen as the screen will burn that image into itself. An example would be if you would use the tv as a second screen for your computer and the desktop image was always on the screen, eventually it will get burned in to the screen.

According to the service manual if the red light is blinking then the TV may need to be service. Since your TV is less then a year old, still under manufacturers warranty.
I would suggest to contact Sony to ask them for the nearest authorized service center to have the tv repair.
Good Luck.

Battery charger for my Sony Dsc w-55 digital camera


Hey Reinerd,

According to information provided by the manufacturer, the battery charger for your Playstation Portable is not designed to be used with the battery for your digital camera.

Please keep in mind that most manufacturers will provide lists of compatible battery and charger models in their owner's manual booklets, as well as on their own websites.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
