Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-55XS955 55" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Sony rear projection tv dead in the water

Picked the tv up used (KP-53hs30, serial-9844850), and it was working great. Watched it one morning, and then in the evening i noticed the remote wouldn't turn the tv on. Pressing the 'on' button on the TV just gave me 3 red blinks, and then shortly after pressing the 'on' button resulted in nothing, no blinks.

Sound like a fuse or something relatively simple? I doubt the unit is worth shelling out hundred's of dollars to fix, but if it's a silly fuse or 20 dollar board I'll take care of it in a heartbeat.
Thanks,
Matt

    Is there a good place to source any of those parts (either the components, or the g board itself)?
    Thanks in advance.

According to the tech manual I looked at, it's a bad board - it just doesn't say which board. Sorry. Looks like it's making a trip to the shop.

Good luck.

Pink image on Sony KP-53HS30 TV


Pink? If this is a retangular box that appears then I would suggest to look into the fact that you have turned on "TEXT" mode within the "CC" closed caption settings.

Progressive scan


progressive scan? does your tv support 720p, or 1080p HD? (the p actually stands for progressive scan).
Another alternative to that is: http://www.playerschoicevideogames.com/pd_psp.cfm

A bit more expensive, but i think it works on any tv.
