Question about Sony Grand WEGA KF50WE610 50" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

We have a Sony 42 in.Grand Wega tv that we just replaced the lamp on, however when we turn on the tv it only stays on for about 20 sec. Then we lose sight and sound for about 20 sec. The process keeps repeating. The power standby light stays green. We have tried to do a reset with the remote and TV power button, with no success. Maybe this process is unnecessary.

  • Kathywitdouc Dec 30, 2010

    Ok I'm here

  • Kathywitdouc Dec 30, 2010

    R U still with me?

  • Kathywitdouc Dec 30, 2010

    It turns off then on eve 20 seconds or so

  • Kathywitdouc Dec 30, 2010

    We took the lamp out and the repair shop ordered a new one. We've since discovered that it has a milky spot in the bottom, so it seems like we got a faulty bulb. I guess we'll have to get another new one.

  • Kathywitdouc Dec 30, 2010

    Where is that?

  • Kathywitdouc Dec 30, 2010

    My husband is on the phone, just give me a couple of minutes so he can look for this fuse

  • Kathywitdouc Dec 30, 2010

    Yes. I can't seem to see your answers unless I pick up the thread from the email. Just wondering how to get access this fuse

  • Kathywitdouc Dec 30, 2010

    We don't have an OHM device

  • Kathywitdouc Dec 30, 2010

    No. And he can't seem to find it from the front of the tv

  • Kathywitdouc Dec 30, 2010

    He had it u plugged.

  • Kathywitdouc Dec 30, 2010

  • JOHN BABA Dec 30, 2010

    yes, I thought I lost you, I had to reboot. reply so I can make sure I still have you.

  • JOHN BABA Dec 30, 2010

    OK, say you replace lamp, anything else? And what does it do now?

  • JOHN BABA Dec 30, 2010

    Did you do this lamp change yourself?

  • JOHN BABA Dec 30, 2010

    there is a pico fuse you need to replace

  • JOHN BABA Dec 30, 2010

    yes, scroll down

  • JOHN BABA Dec 30, 2010

    pico fuse color brown or green

  • JOHN BABA Dec 30, 2010

    pico fuse color may be green or brown

  • JOHN BABA Dec 30, 2010

    its small in size. one quarter of inch long, brown or green in color, does not look like a normal fuse looks like. If you have a OHM meter, you could check it

  • JOHN BABA Dec 30, 2010

    hope you forgive my slow responce, iam supposed to have direct feed line, but i guess busy this time of year.

  • JOHN BABA Dec 30, 2010

    Does he have OHM meter to check it?

  • JOHN BABA Dec 30, 2010

    Kathy, I must warn you of very high voltage in these sets, if you don,t know what you are doing. High Voltage can KILL you.

  • JOHN BABA Dec 30, 2010

    This fuse has to be unsoldered and resoldered in place with new one.

  • JOHN BABA Dec 30, 2010

    There are capacitors in the set, that hold a charge in exess of 3,000 volts 10 years later, or even after being unpluged, thats what they do. Discharge them and if you are willing to do the job, I will try to guide you.
