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

1 Answer

Sony Grand Wega KDF-E42A10 50in LCD projection TV

The tv will not power up. The power/standby light is flashing green. I can not find any help in the manual with this. Is the problem that the bulb has gone bad?

Thanks for your help

3 blinks is a lamp cover error, did you make sure that the lamp cover is screwed in tight? Also check the lamp cover for deformity, there is a problem with your model where the set over heats and melts the lamp cover a little causing it not to make connection with the lamp cover switch. Let me know if you find either of these problems? If not we can troubleshoot a little further.

I have a Sony KDF-E50A10 Grand WEGA LCD. The picture cuts in and out and the green standby light flashes. One expert said the STKs need to be replaced??? How can I do this...please advise in detail.


Replace your lamp. Your DLP set does not have Stk ic's in it. I don't know what expert told you that but I can assure you he has never worked on a TV. You can purchase the lamp from www.dlplamps.com

Tv wont power up Standby light keeps flashing.


First step in any Sony LCD projector repair is bulb or lamp replacement. Fixes 95% of problems.

Taking apart and trying to measure things without a known good bulb is a waste of time and effort.

Problem for Sony Grand WEGA KDF-55WF655. Hello,


5 times Red LED blinks means Lamp Driver Error. (KDF-55WF655)
2 possible reasons, either Lamp is gone or Ballast Supply got bad.
Replace lamp first, in most cases it solved the problem.
How old is this TV and did you replaced lamp recently?
Thanks.
