Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-60XS955 60" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

I just purchased a used Sony KDF-60XS955 Projection TV. I have replaced the lamp unit, however, the picture remains fairly dark. The picture is only clear when you are positioned directly in front of the set, and even then the picture is fairly dark. When viewing anywhere off from center, the picture is extremely dark. Does this issue suggest a specific problem? I was thinking I might attempt to clean some of the dust from inside of the set and see if that helps the situation.

I have a Sony KDF-60XS955 tv. It won't power on,


I have that manual. There are three lights to the left of the power button. One is labled LAMP. The manual states "The projection lamp, which illuminates the picture, has a limited life. If the screen becomes dark, the color looks unusual, or the LAMP indicator on the front of the LCD projector TV flashes, it is time to replace the lamp with a new one (not supplied). Use a Sony XL-2200 replacement lamp (not supplied) for replacement. Use of any other lamp may damage the LCD projection TV." I also found in a different page " LAMP LED lights up in red when the lamp for the light source has burnt out." I guess burnt out would be extream. I found one other if you had opened the light bulb cover and didn't close it properly. " If the lamp cover is not reattached securely, the self-diagnostic function may be triggered and the POWER/STANDBY indicator flashes three times." You can down the sony manual at http://www.docs.sony.com/release/KDF60XS955.pdf

Hi all,\r\n Ok, I have a Sony KDF-60XS955, about 5 years old. Yesterday, the picture started dimming noticably. Today, it's so dark it's unwatchable. I've read that it may not be a lamp issue, since...

Above is your user manual, below is your service and repair manual. http://www.fixdevice.com/smanuals/tv/sony/kdf60xs955.html

This may very well be a lamp problem, or it may be the "Driver" for the lamp, or indeed the Power Supply to that lamp, unfortunately one must troubleshoot these issues to isolate the actual problem, Please use these manuals, and you should soon be able to isolate and effect a repair.

The picture goes off, the power/standby light


Sony KDF-60XS955 picture goes and power/standby light light flashes


Hi,

Most likely you have bulb failure. First step in troubleshooting is "Change the Lamp or Bulb". Lightning, power line bumps and collisions with vacuum cleaners can all shorten lamp life. Rough handling in shipment can also happen without your knowledge.

+90% of all Sony LCD Rear Projector "No Picture or Intermittent Picture" faults are related to bulb failure.

If new lamp does not improve the situation, then hands-on troubleshooting by someone that has parts and knows how the unit works is the only practical remedy.
