Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-60XS955 60" Rear Projection HDTV
Sony kp-46v25 blinks 30+ times or once, no picture/no sound, then shuts off
tv is more than 4 years old, worked well until it just went black as i was watching tv. no picture/no sound (not even the channel # showing) when i turn it on. it blinks for 30+ times, then shuts off. after that, it'll blink once, then shuts off. i've waited 12 hours and nothing has improved. i appreciate all your help! can this be a quick fix or do i need to invest in a new $ tv. this is a big rear video projector tv and it's hard to move.
andy I have the exact same problem above and my tv KDF-60xs955 is about 4 yrs old too. Initially it was sporadic that the tv would shut off (no pic or sound) and the green light would blink 30 times and then the pic would come back on followed by the sound a few secs later. Now the tv doesnt stay on for even a minute and the same exact symptoms occur. Even after the tv comes back on it stsyas on only about a minute and goes through the same symptoms again. At this point you can't even watch tv anymore. Is there a fix to this. There is no code flashing and the red light doesn't even come on; only the green flashing at least 30 times every time. Is it time for a new set or to get sucked in to a service call. Thanks. Tim Carlsen
If you are comfortable doing so and have experience with electronics, first try removing the lamp for about a minute or two and then put it back in and see if it works.
If that doesn't work then you will most likely need a new lamp which I can help you with a number from where you can order one.
If you have any further questions please let me know
Thank you for using Fixya and Good Luck.
