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

1 Answer

Sony Wega 42

Turned on TV, picture and sound came on for about 20 seconds, heard a "pop", no picture, no sound. When I try to turn the TV on, hear a "clicking" nose almost sounding as if a CD/DISK were trying to read itself. Just ran out of warranty 3 months ago. Can you tell me where I start? Thanks for the help! Unsure of the exact model #, do know it is LCD 42".

    Which bulb? Didn't smell anything when it happened. Error light? When I try to turn it on, the green light will flash for a little while and then red light flashes.

    Chances are you need to replace the lamp click this link, sorry but we cant really troubleshoot the issue since this is a hardware issue already but luckily the part is replaceable though

    here is the info on the manual since what you heard is a pop before it happened and lights indicates a burned out lamp

TV WONT COME ON AND THE LIGHT KEEPS FLASHIN RED AN GREEN ON THE STANDBY BUTTON


  1. If your Sony Wega will not turn on, the front green light blinks, you hear a faint whirring sound and the green light turns red and flashes, it probably means the lamp inside the set is no longer working. If you noticed the screen beginning to dim in the preceding days or weeks, this most likely is the cause.

  2. If the green light flashes and the picture comes on momentarily but then goes off, and the green button flashes until the set restarts, then the seal around the lamp mount is loose and needs to be refitted.

  3. If the picture on your Grand Wega cuts in and out and the green standby light flashes, both of the set's STKs need to be replaced. STKs are small chips on your television's circuit boards and are identifiable by their labels. The specific STKs used in your Grand Wega TV will be identifiable by the numbered labels on top of the STKs.

  4. When you plug in your Sony Wega and hear a loud popping sound, it's probably caused by a defect in the high-voltage circuit. Let the professionals take care of this one.

  5. If, after turning on your Sony Wega, you can hear your set but the screen is black, you most likely need to replace your projection lamp.

I had just turned on the tv and heard a pop and the screen was blank. When I turn it on, I hear a crackling sound but no tv


If it is a LCD projection, like WEGA, sounds like a bulb replacement time. Look in your owners manual.

TV Picture Goes Black


I had the same exact problem.
I removed the bulb and cleaned it. There is a small screen at the top of the bulb and it was covered with dust. Once it was cleaned I replaced the bulb and it solved the problem.
Thanks to those who posted the solutions
