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

1 Answer

I have the Xony Vega KDF-60XS955. It turns off about every 30 seconds. Stays off for about 30 seconds then comes back on. When it goes off the green power indicator light flashes continuous (no pauses) until it comes back on. Any thoughts?

    I looked at it a bit more. When you turn it off then back on the red indicator light is flashing 5 times. The lamp is about 6 years old and never been replaced. Does it make sense to replace that and see if it fixes the problem before calling a service person?

It is likely that the power supply is failing. It tries to start and powers up briefly then shuts down.

Pull the lamp out and have a look at it. If you don't know what you are looking for in regards to damage, have a look at my Tips & Tricks. I have a tutorial on projection lamps. It will show you where to look when inspecting a lamp. I hope this was helpful, best wishes.

Hi,

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.

Sony Grand Wega KDF-60XS955 Picture comes on and then goes off.


You have a bad lamp. Sometimes when the lamp gets old, it doesn't fail and open like they usually do. Instead, the reflector gets cloudy, and instead of reflecting the light, it converts it into heat. As the lamp heats up, it draws more power, eventually to the point where the TV senses it drawing too much power and shuts down, going into a reset cycle. replace the lamp and use an original Sony lamp, as the aftermarket lamps are known trouble makers. Be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!

Goes off and on


I replaced the lamp today in my KDF-60XS955 and it has worked perfectly since then. I purchased the lamp from sony, costs more but I got the correct part. Might be your problem since I had similar symtoms. 30 green flashes and picture/sound cycled off and on about every thirty seconds. Good luck. Chrismickey
