Question about Sony Grand WEGA KF50WE610 50" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Televison shuts makes a sound and shuts off repeatedly

I have a 50 Inch Grand Wega LCD Rear Projection KF-50WE610
I purchased it 12/08/03, I have changed the lamp once, about 3 months ago. My set will turn on and run fine for a few hours and then shuts it self off. The red lamp light blinks, and if I hit the power button the tv starts up again and may run for another hour or so. Then it will shut down again and then sometimes it will start up and sometimes it will go right back off. Has anyone have any ideas of what is causing this. Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

    Update on 50 Inch Grand Wega LCD Rear Projection KF-50WE610 problem.

    I did unplug the set for 5 min. and plugged it back in. It worked for a few hours but the same problem occurred. When the set shuts off the red lamp light flashes 6 times, The cycle coninues until I turn the set back on. I was told that a tech can identify the problem by the number of times that the red light flashes. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Probably needs an original SONY lamp instead of the "replacement" lamp you put in.
