Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-60WF655 60" Rear Projection HDTV

3 Answers

Tv went black. I don't hear the fan running anymore either. Power/Standby is flashing 6 times. TV is about 2.5 years old. I'm being told it can be the bulb or the ballest. I've noticed the Lamp indicator isn't showing a red light so I'm thinking the bulb isn't the problem. Based on the 6 Red flashes; anything I can do rather than spending $200 for a repair svc company to come by and diagnose the problem and also charge for parts

In respoonse to my original question the issue was the thermal fuse which was about a $16 part. The issue was to much dust build up in the back of the tv. Granted, this should be cleaned and check every month or so. Plus, there was a vent very close to the back of the tv. Therefore, everyone should make sure their tv is checked for dust ever couple months.

I did not have a red light and the bulb was still the problem. After 2 1/2 years you might need the bulb anyway if the set gets some good use.

You may have a thermal fuse bad. This is not a part that should be replaced by an owner unless you are a TV tech. Call someone and have it done

My sony KP-443X3U rear projection tv went to standby and I cannot get it to switch on. It is approx 6 years old. I think the bulb needs to be replaced?


Google the model number to locate it with "lamp" and You Tube has video instructions for replacing in most models--lamp has a 2,000 hour or 2 year average life and is meant to be replaceable by the customer who owns the set.

I have an LG 17LX1R LCD TV/monitor that won't go on. The power light on the TV flashed red . . . but that's it.


My LG 17LX1R had a almost the same problem. Red standby went to green for 1-2 seconds then back to red standy. Turned out to be bad caps on the power supply board. Yours is definately going to need to be opened up. Not a generic fix. You gotta ask yourself if its worth fiixing a 6-7 year old LCD tv with limited LCD life. New ones can be had for about $130-150.

Sony Bravia KDL 46", no picture, standby light blinks 4 times


Since the TV is still receiving power, the problem is going to be with the TV's mainboard.  After you unplugged the TV and plugged it back in, you said the power light went out again, so I assume the standby light wasn't flashing again?  The flashing standby light is indicating an error code so my suggestion is to contact Sony for service options regardless if there is a warranty or not because service is the only solution to this situation.  Don't forget to provide them the error code or 4 flashes repeating.

I own a Sony T.V. model #KV36HS510, Serial # 9024184,Event# E36002407 and it"s aTrinitron brand name. Like the problems before no picture or sound, stand by light on front of unit flashes. When trying to turn it back on you can hear the power click, like it wants to turn on, but does not.
