Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-55WF655 36" Rear Projection HDTV
When powered on the TV will boot-up properly for about 20 to 60 seconds before beginning what I call the reboot loop. The power/standby flashes for awhile then picture comes back for 20-30 secs and all over again. HELPPPPPP!!!! Called Sony support and the guy just told me he couldn't help, that I needed an authorized service center.
Solution # 1 was no help - I talked to some moron at Sony who said to contact a service person. Waste of 30 minutes.
Here is what I did:
I was having the same problem. I am no expert, but what I read on-line is that it was likely the lamp needing replaced, that the lamp toward the end of its life will flicker and cause the TV to "reboot". I had no Red Lamp replacement light, so I wondered if that was really the problem. But, I bought a replacement lamp for $110 plus shipping, and replaced it last night - TV is working great now. I would try replacing the lamp on yours first yourself (if the lamp is older than 2 yrs), then if that does not work, contact a service person. Don't have a service person replace it, because I have heard many people say they paid $400 for a replacement lamp service, and I did it for under $140 with overnight shipping charge for the new lamp. My original lamp lasted 4 years, so I was lucky to not have this problem sooner. As long as the green light is flashing more than 10 times before the picture comes back on, it is likely the lamp. For 10 or less flashes it could indicate another problem.
Hope this help!
