Question about Sony Grand WEGA KF50WE610 50" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

TV Goes Blank after 5 minutes

My Sony Grand Wega turns on, plays for a few minutes, then the sound and screen turn off - the LED remains on (no flashing). I can turn off the TV, turn it back on, same result. This happens with Sat or DVD Source. Is it the bulb..or something else I can fix myself.

    The tv is on, then the screen and audio go out-no sound, blank screen--green light stays on at right base of unit--then after 20-40 seconds, the sound and screen come back on. this happens with no set pattern. Sometimes the tv will be ok for hours, then it just starts this. It is Sony Grand Wega KDF-E55A20 -had it about 3 years.

Picture & sound go on & off every sec, red light blinks 5 times


helloFive blinks - AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with the video. Check video out, Q705, 732, 761 and other components on the C board, also check Q218, 219, 220 on the A board. In addition, unit could be in IK blanking, try turning up screen slightly.

Grand Wega picture going on and off; standby light flashing, sound remains on


Is the cooling fan running properly?  I'm just guessing, but it sounds like it could be overheating and shutting off, which allows it to cool off enough to turn on and overheat all over again.
