Question about Sony Grand WEGA KF42WE610 42" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
My LCD TV has been getting progressively worse - instead of turning on - it will give off a buzzing sound and go to standby mode. (without turning lamp etc on) For the last few months I have been able to finally get the tv to turn on and when it does - it works fine. However, now it will not turn on at all. It will attempt to turn on several times and then the fan will turn off and the red light will flash 5 times. I have removed the lamp (sylvania) and reset it - but no change. (also- the lamp indicator has NOT ever lit up - so I believe the lamp is still good - when the tv USED to turn on - the tv worked fine).
Through my research, I believe it has something to do with the spark gap to the lamp driver board. The buzzing sound appears to be the machine's attempt to send power to the lamp - but "it ain't a workin'!"
I have heard that several people have this problem with this tv but Sony has not issued a recall.
Is there anything I can do that will not cost $200 + for a repair call?
Thank you so much!
Lamp driver error 5 times - Lamp driver is faulty. The symptom will be no picture or sound . Repalce the lamp driver.
