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

1 Answer

Sony Grand Wega KDF-42WE655; 2 problems

I have had the set for two years, (1) about a year ago, a constant buzzing occurs when we turn on a particular light switch that sounds almost like electrical feed back.(2) The more recent problem is quite annoying, every few seconds a crack/crackle occurs through the speakers, doesn't matter if volume is high or low.

You have a problem with EFM interference from a light that has a dimmer switch. Turn dimmer all the way up or off, buzzing will cease

Pure dab radio keeps cutting out


Hi,
My Pure Evoke 1S ran fine for years. Then two years ago it started cutting out every now and again, and, at other times, just failing to switch on, by constantly recycling between off and on. The higher the volume setting, the quicker it cut out.
I persevered with the radio because a) it was expensive at £90, b) the sound is very good quality, and c) I could not see a reason for the fault other than a component failure (and there was no obvious sign for that).
I then discovered the fix and it is quite simple. With the radio on, select the menu option "Energy Saving Settings" and set the option to "NO". The radio will works as normal, immediately.
Hope this works for you, too.

This model is prone to a lot of problems to the point where a year or so ago they offered a chassis replacement on an exchange basis.

I would with rear cover removed try to localize first where the sound or buzz is coming from: The ballast? the Light engine? The power supply?

I can help but as I said this model has a LOT of chronic problems.

The antenna is built in. The buzz you're hearing is a 60cycle hum (electricity from a nearby appliance) Try this, put an extension cord on it and walk it around your listening room for best reception. You can also find the culprit appliance by turning items off 1 by 1 until buzz subsides.

sounds like your control module is defective, put you hand on the control unit and see if you can feel the noise.

Dead sony


The $1200 was for the lcd engine not the lamp. You should change the lamp. The buzz is the power supply trying to light the lamp.

My 60" lcd projection tv wont turn on sometimes and throws a lamp light, and if i watch tv for a while and turn it off it wont turn back on and throws the red lamp light


The buzzing sound you most likely hear is the ballast trying to fire up the lamp. I would say replace the lamp and yes they can act up at will. If this is the first lamp replacement ever then you are doing good.
