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

1 Answer

We have had our TV since January 2006. Just in the past month it turns off by itself. We can turn it back on, but at the next commercial it turns off again. The weird thing is sometimes it can go an entire day without turning off, other times it turns off after the first 20 minutes and keeps turning off.

If it is Sony KDF-42WE655 model then it sounds TV needs lamp.
Have you replaced its lamp since 2006?
And please check when TV gets off itself, does its standby red light blinks? if yes, how many times it blinks? This is an error code.
Let me know to find out any possible solution.

your tv off own its own, because its regulation varies, the voltages changes at the output of your power supply, take your tv for repair immediately before it burns more components outside the supply. ask your technician to connect a avo meter at the output of a supply and observe for along time, he will notice a change. thanks

Our TV shuts off by itself usually during commercials. We have to unplug it, plug it back in and turn it on manually ~ till next commercial. Seems to happen more on the cable channels ~ the main networks...


Since commercials are louder volume-wise (especially with cable more than satellite), my first guess would be that you have a faulty part around the audio amplifier of the TV, and it loads the power supply or creates a high/low that tells the TV micro to turn off. Knowing what brand the TV is helps, but in any case, it probably needs to be referred to a TV repair shop for tracking the part(s) down.

I hope this helps you...

Flashes orange 2 times every 5 seconds

There is a 20 pin cable that goes from the main board to the light engine that can cause this issue. The other possibility is the door switch or the cable that leads to it has failed. If none of those correct it then the light engine itself is the problem. Hopefully one of the earlier mentioned items is the issue as the light engine is costly. The part number for the cable is LSJA0467 and is available here

The TV should be under warranty. Send back. Sounds like the panel is faulty (half the value of the set).
