Question about Sony Televison & Video

2 Answers

My Sony 42" DLP TV blacks out every 87 seconds. Then the green standby light blinks 30 times then I get picture and no sound. 7 more blinks after that I get sound. In 87 seconds later, it blanks out again and repeats. I also noticed the picture isn't as bright as it use to be. Cheaper to fix or replace?

Please replace Lamp in TV because this lamp is weak in result, causing darker picture and turning off and on TV.
Lamp replacement procedure would be written in user manual and its easy.
I would recommend to buy Sony original replacement lamp for TV safety.
Thanks.

That is a lot of blinking going on. i have not known it to blink more than 9 times. see if it stops anywhere along that time. i know that seven blinks has a problem with the D board with the horizontal deflection. there can also be some codes that has been there in the past that has not been booted out. take your tv and unplug it for about an hour, just to be on the safe side, then replug it back in and see what the blinking does then.

Was watching TV, heard a pop and the screeen went black. Now when I turn it on, the pwoer light blinks green but their is no picture or audio. The light then starts blinking red


Hi,
Is is standby light blinking red or any other light? Let me know how many times red standby light blinking after three seconds long pause to provide you helpful info.
It seems pop sound was due to broken lamp, please check lamp inside tv and if it is broken, replace it to solve tv problem.
Hope this will help.
Thanks.

Check your color wheel. There is a DIY guide for replacing the color wheel. Mine did the same thing yours is and my color wheel was all busted up. Unfortunately after replacing the color wheel my set continues to do the same thing, but this could mean I need to replace the ballast as well.
