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

1 Answer

I replaced the lamp on my Sony KDF- 42WE655 42in rear projection tv a couple of months ago. It was working fine for about a week and then every time I turn it ON, "REPLACE LAMP" indicator changes to red after the red power light blinks for about 25 times. If I take out the lamp and put it back it works until the power is turned off. I have been doing that for some time. What is the solution to this problem ?

You have to reset the lamp timer. Should be able to do through the menu. If you have a manual, it should explain the proceedure to reset.

The TV keeps shutting off, then shortly after turns back on, then shuts off again... Plugging the cord into a different wall outlet doesn't solve the problem. Please help! Thank you


I'm having the same problem. My TV will play for for awhile and then it just dims down for about 1 to 2 minutes then powers up again. The green light stays on doesn't blink at all, and there is no red light that comes on or blinks like when our lamp went out. We replaced the lamp about 6 months ago and it's been working great until this week.

Turns on and off green LED flashes until TV turns back on.


this is a symptom of a bad lamp. for some reason it won't spit out a lamp error. shaking up the lamp will sometimes fix temporarily but you will find replacing to be the answer. if your tv has a fan error, you will get 4 red blinks.
