Question about Sony Grand WEGA KF42WE610 42" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

TV turns on and off.

I turn on my Tv and it stays on for about 40 seconds and turns back off for 40 seconds then turns back on. It will continue this way as long as you keep the TV on. The green indicator light stays on during the whole cycle no blinking occures. I've had this TV since dec 03' have had several bulbs replace and the block blog replace. Called Sony and was told that it needed service no know problems. I called a service center and was told two possible problems: replace the bulb or replace the ballist. Could you please help? Oh I did try replacing the bulb but when I put the new bulb in it worked for about 10 hours and Now back to the same issue in the begining.

It is possible that the ballust assembly is causing the lamp to fail. You likely need to replaced the ballust with a new lamp because if the ballust is bad it has likely already damaged the lamp. If you have been handling the glass of the new lamps with your bare hands this could be the cause of the short lif as the oil from your hands will cause premature failure of the lamp.

Panasonic TC-P42X1 acts like it is turning on, the screen turns black, then the tv shuts itself off and back on again.


Rule out any loose contacts in power outlet, RC Jack, cables and connectors. The problem described by you calls for opening the back cover and further investigation, which should only be done by a qualified service technician.

You need a professional.
Stop using the TV until it is repaired.
Continue to use it and your problems will multiply and grow more expensive.
Call the manufacturer to find you nearest authorized service center.

This sounds like a protection system cutting in. This happens if there is a major fault and continual use would lead to a fire risk.
