Question about Sony Grand WEGA KF50WE610 50" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

My Sony Wega 60 LCD (model # KDF_60XS955)

I bought this TV about 3yrs. ago and love it. A few days ago the lamp went and I tackled the task of replacing it. I ordered one, it arrived and I followed any and all instructions when replacing the lamp. After replacing the lamp and putting every back together, I plugged it in. The red stanby light came on solid. I pushed the power button and it flashed green 3 times then flashed 6 times red. The red light continues to cycle and flash red 6 times then nothing for 1 to 2sec. I pulled the bulb out and reinstalled it a couple times. I keep getting the same sequence of lights. The set does nothing and makes no noise other than the flashing lights. After calling Sony and searching on the web for my answer, the best answer I have gotten has been something to do with the H-stop. I got this info on the web. Can anyone help me out with this? What could be the problem and how can I resolve it? Help PLEASE?!

The picture goes off, the power/standby light

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


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.
