That is a typical lamp failure, dimming of the picture, eventually the bulb may go out from time to time causing the picture to come and go, it is time for a new bulb. The bulb is located under the front panel, there are two thumbscrews on either side of the set in the back, loosen these screws and pull off the front panel, the panel has some snaps, so it will not come off easy, tug on it and you will hear several pops indicated the plastic retainer has let loose, then you will see a door near the center of the tv with another thumbscrew, you bulb is under this. Flap.

The power/standby indicator is flashing a red light and my tv will not turn on.


Hi,
Flashing of the led light indicates an error code, count how many times it will blink to determine where the fault came from.

We purchased a sony wega hd lcd projection tv. The set had a great picture until the lamp had to be replaced. The screen got progressively darker until the screen went completely dark. After the lamp...


It sounds to me like you got a fingerprint on the lamp when you installed it. The oils in your skin can cause all kinds of problems on a lamp that gets soo hot. I recommend replacing the lamp again and using a tissue or sterile glove to hadle the new bulb. Also, before replacing the lamp make sure to clean and vacuum out the light engine box and fan.

If the problem persists, then the LCD panels inside the light engine have been heat damaged. There is a class action lawsuit in New York that is trying to extend the light engine warrantee on Wega TVs. You should give Sony a call at 1-800-222-SONY for information and more assistance.

good luck!

Picture is dark


Adjust video settings:
  1. Press Wega Gate
  2. Select Settings
  3. Highlight Video
  4. Press + to select
  5. Adjust/increase the brightness.
  6. Press Wega gate to exit.
If picture is still dark, you need to replace the lamp again. Sony recommends that you replace the lamp:
  1. After approximately 8,000 hours of use.
  2. When the screen becomes dark or the color becomes unusual.
  3. When the lamp indicator on the front of the TV flashes.
