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

1 Answer

Not sound or picture from the TV

When I go to turn the TV on, from the TV or remote, the yellow power / standby light comes on (green I think) and stays lit but there is no sound or picture from the screen. There are no blinking lights or red light illuminated? Do I need to replace the bulb? Thanks.

Re: Not sound or picture from the TV

If it has been over 2 years on this bulb, I would start there cause it will need one soon anyway.
Projection TV makers charge an arm and a leg for their replacement lamps. They make it easy to do but as a result the custom lamp assy is expensive. The trick is to just buy the bulb for your model TV from any number of us aftermarket sources at a fraction of the lamp price and install it in the old lamp yourself. really easy. However, this is one of the model that Sony has class action lawsuits against them on because it has so many problems with the light engine. See this:

Samsung HLP4674W - changed bulb - still no picture - lights flash

If the lamp has been replaced I would think the Lamp ballast would be most likliest followed by the color wheel and then the Digital board. You can get any part needed for your model at just leave them a email they respond quickly.

Tv wont power up makes a noise but no picture

Your power transformer is likely shot. It'll cost at least $200 to have it replaced. Someone can come to your house to diagnose it. Usually costs around $65.
