Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-55XS955 55" Rear Projection HDTV
When we turn the tv on a few minutes later it cuts off and the green power light blinks for a few minutes then the tv cuts on by itself. It keeps turning on and off but the green light just keeps blinking. Someone please help. TV does the same thing. Sometimes. Turn it on and after a few min. it turns itself off. The green light flashes when it turns off. 30 sec. later it comes back on, after a few min it turns back off, --keeps repeating--
Yup, it seems a lamp problem can give a blinking green light over the 10 times (1 - 10 times for diagnostic codes), but in my case rather than replace the bulb if it works for a minute then resets with the green light blinking, do what I did.
Take the lamp out and inspect it, it has breather screens top and bottom, if it cant breath because there clogged with dust, clean them, and you can remove the screens, use q-tips and clean the inside. I saved the cost of a lamp and it's working fine!

The local Sony Dealer where I bought the TV told me to unplug the tv for a while. There is a computer in the tv that sensed a problem and keeps triggering the shut down sequence. I was leaving for the weekend so I cut power for 3 days. When I plugged it back in, it started working fine. I did not replace the bulb.

The Best Solution worked perfectly, I replaced the XL2200 Sony Bulb and the TV is up and running again!
Thanks for the help.
