I have a Sony KDF-42WE655 was watching it then heard a pop then no picture or sound the led on the front blinks red and green?


Check the lamp of your television. It is possible that the lamp came to its end, to confirm if the lamp is busted, pull the lamp out and for you to see the if lamp filament is broken. if it does, you need to replace the lamp.

I would recoment you take this to a service center. From you short description I suspect the optical assy is bad, if you are lucky it could just be dust. The optical assy. is the most expensive part in the tv. good luck.
