SOURCE: have a KDF 60Wf 655 will not turn on.

Wether it looks blown or not replace it and dont put oil from your fingers on the bulb. Also clean the cooling fans for the bulb and projector (which may mean taking the back off and taking apart projector). Dirt in the projector fans can cause a fault not allowing for the unit to turn on. All the cooling work ins conjunction with a good bulb.

SOURCE: I have a soney kdf-50e2000. The lamp went out a

Sony should have told you this is a common problem. If you remove the door and hold it edgewise look to see if it is warped even a little.

You will notice a small plastic peg on the back of the door, if you look closely you will see a small opening with a lever(usually blue in color) and this is a safety switch which prevents the set from being operated with the door removed.

What happens is the door gets warped just enough so the peg does not engage the lever switch.

If you want to confirm this, what I do is use a Q tip or something NOT METAL and wedge it in so the lever is ENGAGED.

If set now comes on with lever engaged, you need replace only the door, some advice here?

Do not operate the set for prolonged time with the door off and the lever engaged, and do not LOOK at the light from the lamp which can damage your eyes, Do not with door off replace front grill as the heat from the lamp can then warp it.

Ebay sells OEM replacement doors for about 20 dollars including shipping, MY MONEY IS THE DOOR IS WARPED, it does not take much for it not to engage the lever.

Please if have any questions or engage of the lever brings the set back online let me know, I am here to help.

SOURCE: I replaced my optical block on my Sony


Please check this link to get an idea about replacing optical block and see if all the settings inside have been done properly or not:-

However the blue CRT is most likely shorted and if the TV is more than a few years old, replacing all three tubes may be necessary.

If your Projection TV is rolling vertically or horizontally when you watch either cable or over the air broadcasts, try the following:

Make sure that all your cables are connected correctly and securely. For example, if you have mistakenly connected a Component output from a set top box to a standard video or AV input on your TV, the resulting picture will be distorted.

If you are watching over the air broadcasts, make sure your antenna is aimed so that you are receiving the strongest signal.

If you are watching standard cable, make sure that the cable is connected firmly at the wall jack and the back of the TV.

If you have a set top box that lets you adjust the output resolution (to 480p, 480i, 720p, or 1080i), make sure that the resolution you have chosen is compatible with the input jack to which you've attached the set top box.

Please get back to us if you have further query or else please accept the solution.

How to replace bulb on sony kdf-55000

there are 2 hand screws on the back of tv, both sides, loosen them, them remove the lower front plastic cover, it is tight, you will need to pull on it hard after you loosen the screws, when you remove the front cover you will see the lamp access door, one hand screw removes it. 2 allen screws remove the lamp, if you buy a sony lamp, it will come with the allen wrench. if the glass is busted on your lamp it is definately bad, if it's not busted, you might have another problem.

Lamp keeps burning out. I have had the tv 2 years. The original lamp burned out in 1 year. I have since replaced the lamp at least 3 more times in the following year. Help!


Im not at all familiar with your sony model but I do know that when A lamp is replaced you must reset the lamp timer if it is not reset it will cause premature lamp failure.
This is normally in the engineers menu as I said I dont know your model its not one I recognise so im sorry but I cant tell you how to enter service mode.
Hopefully one of the techs on here will know how and help you.
