Question about Sony Grand WEGA KF50XBR800 50" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Sony KF-50XBR800 My tv suddenly shut off, both picture and sound.  The stand by light on the small front panel started blinking.  I presumed that the lamp needed to be replaced (I had replaced it once before) but it didnt seem like I had gotten that much run time out of this lamp.  I replaced the lamp, but the set still does not come on.  When you press the power button there is a clicking noise, and the stand-by lamp blinks on and off.

    I have the very same problem. It started doing the same thing on Friday. I have a Sony Grand WEGA KDF-60XS955. June of last year the engine had to be replaced. Now this is happening. Is this common in LCDs and HDTVs? My Samsung 56" DLP had it's engine replaced too along with the component box. It's not a bad idea to buy extended warranties on these TVs or you may have to buy a new TV every 2 years or so. I'm glad I did.

How many times does it blink. It should be blinking a repeating code if its in protective shutdown mode. A continuos blinking with no pauses means.
No reply from the jungle IC(data bus is busy, shorted to ground or held
high), IK video path is defective.

Sony kf-60we610 stand by blinks 5 times


Hey there,
I've had my Sony KF-50WE610 for approx. 4years now and have just experienced the prob you described (though I didn't think to count the number of red blinks). I called Sony TV technical support (888-772-7669, #3 for TV/digital cameras, #1 for TV, then #1 again I think). They said that if the power/standby light blinks 5x, that means there's something wrong with the lamp driver and service will be required. Needless to say, I better go home and count my red blinks! Good luck, I hope this helps a bit. Have a happy and safe holiday!

Sony kf-50XBR800 tv turns itself on and off


I just purchased a replacement lamp off ebay and the TV is working fine now. Color looks better too (which I guess I should have expected). Search for "REPLACEMENT LAMP SONY XL-2100U" on eBay and look for seller "niosales". I paid $129 out the door. Their are other auctions for this lamp you can check out. Make sure you look at lamps that include the entire lamp housing, not just the bulb.

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.
