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.

When turning on the TV, I hear a banging/grinding sound.


Hi,

If you hear a grinding,whirling,spining or buzzing sound, that sounds to me like the COLOR WHEEL,the reason for that is because your color wheel spins at 5,000 rpms(revolution per minute) and something that modifies the balance of the disc can cause different things,Unfortionatelly the only way to check that the color wheel is working properlyis you need to check it out physically

I did some research and I found the color wheel at DM;http://www.discount-merchant.com/Samsung-Replacement-Color-Wheel-HLS-HLT-Series-p/samsungcolor_wheel_bp96-01579a.htm?CLICK=52978

Please keep us posted.

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.

RCA projection TV 65inches, turned it on, the channel can not stay the same, it automatically goes down one continuously, 43->42->41->40->......


Check for stuck button on front of set or on remote. Probably ch. down button. Wiggle button free from jammed condition and ch. should stop changing. If that doesn't solve it unplug set from the wall or power strip for 30 seconds and restart in an attempt to reset. Take batteries out of remote to eliminate it as the culprit, also. And you can change the tv input and use audio/video input if the tuner in the set has gone haywire.Good luck, Russmann.
