Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-60XS955 60" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Sony wega won't turn on

Sony 60" LCD Wega won't turn on. It's not the lamp. We've already replaced the lamp several times. Now the lamp area seems as if it's been burning too hot for a while. For the past few weeks it's taken many attempts at turning on to get it to turn on. Today it won't turn on at all. Maybe the fan is burnt out?

It sounds like it is the ballast. The ballast is what fires the lamp, if it is faulty, it will continue to blow out the lamp. The fan cooling could also be the issue but the TV will usually turn itself off if the fans are not spinning at the right speed.

My Grand WEGA KDF-60WF655 60 in. has blue dots and standby flashes 6 times. I already changed the lamp. Can somebody help me?


Your SIx flashing are the indicaton of a bad thermal fuse, located on the lamp housing, its used to report the temp of the lamp at all times. replacing it envolves removing the optics engine assembly. When it fails sony detects this as an temp error. As to the blue lights dots, i am assuming this is on the screen while viewing, this may be caused by the blue optics engine LCD failing, which has to be replaced for normal operation, The good thing is you can solve both problems by replacing the Optics Engine. Here is a good place to start looking for one at good reasonable prices.
