Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-42WE655 42" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Kdf 42 we 655 - does not come on

When you power it on, power light blinks and then a few buzzing sounds and then the power light goes back to red within a minute.

The unit is 6 years old. Time for a new bulb? Anything else.

Is it cheaper to buy a new unit?

Please advise.

    I have the same problem, I suspect the problem is caused by the lamp inside? Is the lamp easy to replace and can I do it myself?

I have a sony kdf 50e-2000 the green light goes on then it goes to thr red blinking lamp light. I have no sound or picture. If I replace the lamp light will I get sound and a picture again?


Hi,
Yes, if you have not replaced the lamp since you purchased this TV.
Lamps usually last about 6000 hours.
I've seen lamps last much longer than 6000Hrs, it all depends on the usage.
Remove the lamp from the TV and do a visual inspection, see if there's a crack on the glass or the bulb.
If the TV is few years old then the Lamp may be bad.

DO NOT BUY the lamp from ebay

Good luck to you.

I just replaced the projection lamp and i cannot see an image. green power light goes on for a few seconds then goes back and clicks back to red


HOW MANY TIMES IS THE RED LED BLINKING? IF IT IS BLINKING 3 TIMES MAKE SURE THAT THE LAMP DOOR YOU TOOK OFF TO CHANGE THE LAMP IS INSTALLED BACK ONTO THE TV AND IS SECURE.

Tv won't turn on red lights blinking


You are hearing the spark gap mounted on the lamp ballast board. If you can hear that sound, that means everything in the lamp driver circuit is working except the lamp!

Get a new lamp.

Sony KDF-50WE655 will not power up. Red blight blinks 4 times


4 blinks shows problem either one or all 4 fans are not working AND internal temperature high error.

If you are familiar with TV repair and know basic electronics then unplug TV from AC outlet an take off back cover and check fans are running?

While holding down the reset button on the remote
Press the power button on the tv
(The tv will turn itself off the back on)
Now release the reset button

It sounds like the lamp needs replaced.

Sony LCD television will not power on.


I get 5 blinking red lights for about a minute or so before it powers back down. The Sony TV has a specific light that i presume is supposed to light up when the bulb is out. I'm unsure if this is what it is.
no picture, no sound. tries to boot with green light blinking a few times. then goes to red blinking light, six in all, then waits a few moments, then another 6 blinking red light.
Bulb was already replaced several months ago but we do have the TV on for long periods of time.
