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

1 Answer

KDF-60XS955 shuts off intermittingly and red light flashes 5 times.

I never saw the fix for this. Would you please share it with me.
It just began happening yesterday and I've noticed that if I shut off the TV for a couple of minutes.... it will power back up and run fine for a period of time.
Thank You.

    I have the same problem I lose video and sound the green lights flashes and in a little time everything is find, I don't think it is the lamp as I would expect that to be a one time and stay out till the lamp is replaced. Since I lose the sound it seems the unit is resetting. I've had the unit 3 years and have yet had to replace the lamp. I'm going to order one this week after I see what comes of this posting

    Mine has the same problem and about the same age. I have just let it come back on so far but know that won't last. Mine blinks green about 33 times before getting back to normal. Sometimes it works for a minute and then other times it will work for hours. I tried putting a fan on the back to cool it more but I am not sure it did anything.I hope someone comes up with something about this problem

My KDF 60XS955 turned on and off like the above complaints. I had an appointment with a Sony Repair specialist but thought that since my bulb was getting really old and taking too long to warm up, I would change it before he came and tried to sell me one at retail cost. I then noticed that the set didn't turn off any more. I ran it that way for a week and then decided to put the old bulb back in and see what happened. Within 1/2 hour it had turned off twice so I changed it back and said that fixed it. I cancelled the sony tech and saved some money. I hope this works for some of you also.

Tv wont power up Standby light keeps flashing.

First step in any Sony LCD projector repair is bulb or lamp replacement. Fixes 95% of problems.

Taking apart and trying to measure things without a known good bulb is a waste of time and effort.
