Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-60WF655 60" Rear Projection HDTV

Open Question

Hello, I have an odd situation. I have a Sony KDF-60WF655 rear-projection Grand Wega. The TV has been great, then 1 day about 5 months ago the TV shut off and the red Lamp light was blinking - the lamp had blown. I bought another lamp from an online retailer and installed it, and it worked fine for a few months (until the warranty was over) and that lamp blew, again with the blinking red Lamp light. I bought one more lamp from another online store, installed it, and this time after just a couple days it blew, again with blinking Lamp light. I tried one more time, and this time it hasn't blown. BUT, after working for about 5-10 minutes, the TV shuts off (no power/sound) and the red Lamp light blinks again. If I leave it, the TV will come on again on its own after a few minutes and everything is fine, then it shuts off again with blinking Lamp light. I am thinking because of this that perhaps the lamp is not the root cause. But you guys are the experts... can you help? Thank you!

    Thanks! I checked out the service manual and I can't find the ballast anywhere in there...

    I took the back off and found a fan and cleaned it... it runs when the TV is turned on. But now I'm getting a different error: when I turn on the TV, the Power/Standby light alternates between a 3-second green light and 36 flashes.

    Any ideas?

SOURCE: Tv is shutting down then restarting.

How old is this TV, if its more then 2 years old and have not replaced lamp yet then its problem of weak lamp. Please replace its lamp and always purchase Sony original lamp for smooth TV function.

You need to open up set and clean out all fans of dust or the new bulb isnt being cooled, or the color lcd isnt being cooled shutting TV off.

Sony grand wega kdf 60wf655 will not start up. red light blinks three times. lamp replaced a year ago.

If the POWER/STANDBY indicator flashes three times, the lamp cover may not be attached securely. Review the lamp-changing instructions in your owner's manual, and make sure that the lamp cover is securely attached.

Sony KDF-60WF655 plays for 1 minute and then shuts down

You need a professional.
Stop using the TV until it is repaired.
Continue to use it and your problems will multiply and grow more expensive.
Call the manufacturer to find you nearest authorized service center.
