    EXACTLY The same problem. I see the response was something to do with a thermal sensor. Is that something I can fix so I can cancel the service call that is coming?

Sounds like the thermal sensor is defective. They are usually located on our near the lamp assembly housing.

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.

No picture


(i) Disconnect all the cables from the TV including the power cable then reconnect them after a few minutes.
(ii) Make sure that the power cord from the TV is directly connected to a functional wall outlet.

If the standby light keeps flashing then service will be required.

Lose picture 10-25 sec., keeps soud


I had the same problem with my set. the problem was with the lamp bulb. They don't teel you this, but when a bulb start to go, this can happen. Iuld turn my set on and it would work. After about 45 seconds, the picture would "turn off" (still have the sound). This would last for about 45 - 60 seconds and then the picture woudl come back, but then the cycle would stsart all over again. I took a chance and purchased a new bulb (I bought just the bulb, not the bulb and housing). I took out the current bulb and housing, replaced the bulb in the current housing, and put the bulb/house back in. Problem solved! (have not had the issue since). Hope this is helpful!

This is bad. You need to either be under warranty on these big screen TVs or get the service manual. Especially since this is an off brand.

Hi, this is a very common failure, you need to replace 2 IC chips on your power supply board, marked on the top of the IC`s is this number: MCZ3001D you can purchase them here if you are very proficient at soldering & un-soldering, and the board has to come out of the tv to do this, you might want to call a tv man for this one, but it will fix your set, happy holidays, BMW Rider
