Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-55WF655 36" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Pop then dark screen - no picture... New lamp installed and still no picture

Last Saturday was watching the TV and heard a "pop" and the screen went dark. Looking in the owners manual it sounded like I lost a bulb. Had the TV about 2.5 yrs, and actually purchased the Best Buy 4 yr protection plan. Talked on the phone to schedule service, told them it sounded like a bulb, and 6 days later the part and tech were at the front door. He swapped out bulbs, we plugged in the TV and hit the power and the indicator light showed green for a second, then went back to 6 blinks. I do not know if before changing the lamp it was 6 blinks or not. I asked the teck if the number of blinks was coded, and he said yes, but wouldnt elaborate. He said that he needed to order a ballast - was most likely the problem. So looks like another week without the TV. I have read that 6 blinks may be an indication of a thermal fuse issue. Just wondering what all it may be so I can make sure to ask them to bring along possible parts so as to not keep delaying the eventual fix a week for each part. Any ideas?

Tv went out after loud pop and has clicking noise does not turn on


If you have a Sony DLP, then the loud pop you heard is your lamp.  The lamps last approx. 4K-6K viewing hours.  Read your manual for replacement part number to reorder and very simple to replace yourself.

Toshiba tz50v51 popping sound


Possible problems: * The TV set may be unplugged. * A fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or switched off. * The remote control unit (RCU) may be disabled. Solutions: * Make sure the TV/VCR are plugged in and the wall switch is on. * Check the fuse or circuit breaker. Test the outlet with a lamp. * Replace the RCU's batteries: if this fails exchange the unit.
