    Sony KDF-55WF655 Grand Wega is 3+ years old ...sceen goes blank and audio goes out for about 20 - 30 seconds and then comes back on. This occurs at random intervals - first it was happening maybe once a day and after a month or two it is happening about every 5 to 10 minutes. There are 3 indicator lights on the front panel; one for "power/standby"; the second for "lamp" and the third for "timer". The lamp light does NOT indicate (light up) to code a bad lamp. However, the power/stand by lamp, which is green when the TV is playing correctly, starts to blink continuously when the picture (and audio) disappear. Sony online help (chat) and tech support (phone) could NOT diagnos the problem and gave me the default/canned answer of "find an authorized repair service.

    I found an online blog that claimed this was due to a "weak" bulb, not one that was burnt out ... and simply replacing the bulb corrected the problem.

    Does anyone agree/disagree before I spend $200+ for a new bulb ?!

    Cheers !

    We have a 2 1/2 year old Sony Wega. Without warning the other night it went out, lights started to blink and after about 15 seconds went back on again for a few seconds, went out again, so on and so forth. Call to their help line was no help as I could hardly understand the tech as he had a deep accent. Their repairmen do not come out on the weekends. Recommended a local, who also does not come out on weekends. Wish we knew what it was so we could try to fix ourselves. Any ideas out there?

    the flash count has no bearing on the problem?

I replaced the lamp ... it was the lamp. But while I was in there, I noticed a lot of dust had accumulated over the 3 years, so I vacuumed it out prior to replacing the lamp, so it could have been a thermal switching issue (overtemp). Regardless it works as good as new for $200 and no service call.

I know this sounds silly but,
Is there a remote control with the standby button stuck down?

I get the flashing red light on the front on my Sony Wega when the remote gets stuffed down the side of the sofa but still manages to 'talk' to the TV set. This is due to some buttons being pressed, causing odd behaviour when the tv is on. when the tv is off the light on the front just blinks.

Hello! When was the last time you replace lamp in your TV? If long time ago (2+ years) - replace the lamp. If red light blinks in sequence (example 4 flashes, pause, 4 flushes, pause and so on) - then I need to know how many flushes between pauses. It is an error code. If it blinks just constantly - it is a bad lamp. Regards. Russ.

Sony grand wega KDF55WF655 6 red blinks


you can try these steps if this doesn't work I suggest replacing IC8002 on the power supply
Low HV Shutdown:
On the D Board.
Check IC8004/pin 7 should be 7.4v.
Check IC8006/pin 2 should be 2.5v if lower will trigger shutdown by causing pin 1 to turn on.
Check IC8006/pin 3 reference voltage 2.2v.
IC8006/pin 1 normally at 0v. If high turns D5007 ON which turns the latch circuit Q6532,
Q6530, and Q6527 ON and turns the AC relay RY6501 OFF.

NOTE: 6 blinks also can be Low B+ protection.

Unregulated 7.5 v from the power supply to 5v reg IC504 on the A Board. 5v to M Board Q2314
to CPU IC2300/pin 43. If 5v missing set will shutdown with 6 blinks

Sony KDF55WF655 TV ready green light blinks 30 times


Could be a bad lamp again. If this TV uses the XL2200 lamp, they are known for this intermittent behavior. If its not the lamp, a tech can access the self-diagnosis screen to see what's causing this failure.

Kdf-60xs955 red continous blinking lamp light


It's in standby mode.

Do a reset and see what happens

While holding down the reset button on the remote
Press the power button on the tv
(The tv will turn itself off the back on)
Now release the reset button

It sounds like the lamp needs replaced.

Sony Triniton Wega Model KV 32HS510. After pushing the power button,the tv starts to power up, then the standby light blinks 7 times then pauses before blinking 7 times again. It continues to do this,...


This is usually an indication of a failure in the scan amplifier sections. When the scan amplifiers or high voltage sections fail, the main power supply will usually also require servicing.

It is very common that the fly-back and high voltage multiplier and also the horizontal output stage fails in these sets. Along with it, the power supply will usually require to be serviced. On rare occasions, the vertical deflection amp fails.
