Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-55XS955 55" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

I have a Sony Grand Wega KDF-55XS955 and replaced the buld in December of 2009. I turned the TV one the other day and after about 60 seconds, the lamp light flashs red. There's no sequence to the flashing, just flashs. I've ordered a replacement bulb (hesitantly, wife rushing me) but is there another reason the light could be flashing? Is the lamp ballast something user fixable or possibly the power supply? Thank you, Jay (Mobile, AL)

Sony wega 55 inch tv turns on fine but after one minute tv shuts itself off and comes back on 40 seconds later by itself and this cycle continues - none of the error code lights blink


This kind of problem occurs when lamp becomes weak that means near to end of working life hours but still not dead nor broken.
Replacement of lamp in tv will solve your problem, lamp replacement procedure is easy and would be written in user manual.
Thanks.

Our Sony KDF-55XS955 turns off after 60 to 90 seconds, the green power button blinks about 30 steady blinks then turns itself back on, then repeats the turnoff, blinking 30 times, then turning back on. ...


That is a definitely a lamp issue - Get a NEW lamp (with casing) online, have it shipped overnight - install according to your user manual (this is a common mainenance issue) and you should be fine. Or just call Sony or go to their website and they'll ship it directly to your home. Best Regards,
