Rear projection TV's use a high power light bulb that is cooled by a fan. When you turn the TV off, the fan still runs for a little bit to cool the bulb off. A power outage is nothing short of jerking the plug out of the wall. This is murder on the bulbs because of all of the heat built up in them that the fan cannot remove. I would recomment a UPS (uninterupptable power supply) or as you refered to it "battery backup" to protect your investment. If there is a power outage, this will not really provide enough power to watch tv, but you can safely turn off the tv and it can cool down normally. Also, a UPS can filter and clean up "dirty" power, compensating for over and under voltages that could otherwise cause stress to your electronics. Check the power consumption of your tv, as UPS's are rated by their output capacity. Expect to pay $100 to $200 for a decent unit

If tv turns back on itself after shut down then it is weak lamp problem, replace lamp in tv to fix its problem.
Buy Sony original lamp for good picture in tv and replace it as it is user level repair and lamp replacement procedure is mentioned in related user manual.
If standby light start blinking after shut down, let me know how many times it blinks after three second pause to provide you info about possible cause of problem.

Picture on Sony KDF-60WF655 has a yellow tint after 30 mins on


This TV is known for issues with the optical block(light engine) The discoloration is coming from the LCD panels in the light engine that have been damaged by the intense heat produced by the lamp. There is a class action lawsuit settlement between Sony and the New York state attorney general's office. Sony agreed to cover these problems going back 4 model years. if you had to pay for the repairs on this TV, you could expect to pay more than $1000 to replace the light engine. Call Sony customer relations at 1-800-222-SONY
and tell them you want this covered per the agreement I mentioned.

Sony KDF-60WF655


we had a repair guy come out and say that the ballast (power suply to the lamp) and the lamp was bad. ballast part # is 1-468-875-11 snd the lamps part # is A-1085-447-A. the retail price of both parts are $530.35 together. $195.07 for ballast and $300.58 for the lamp. with a little bit of research though you should be able to knock that down in half. he said that the ballast didn't have a chance to cool properly and is now acting in protection mode. he also said to plug it into the wall and not a surge protector. hope that was helpfull. -n
