Question about Sony Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a Sony Grand Wega LCD TV. Model KDF60WF655 from 2005. The TV turns off after being on for awhile (an hour or so - usually). It will come back on automatically after a few minutes - then it will shut off again after a few minutes. A blog says that power capacitors are leaking or are 'bloated' and need to be replaced on the PSA (?) board. The blog also claims that these components were expected to last 10 years and due to a poor batch - the average is 5 years. What do you think might be wrong? Any likeliness of this capacitor issue? Sony offering an extended warranty for the issue? Rich Livingston Cape Coral FL 610-524-1976

Sony Grand WEGA LCD with no picture


If this is the model I am thinking of, don't bother fixing it. Call up sony and they will should offer you an new sony bravia lcd tv. You can either get the free one or upgrade from the free one to a bigger one. I guess that there is some recall with the light engine and sony is giving out this offer. This happened to my grandma to her 42" grand wega. The ending result was that she got a 46" 120hz sony bravia tv for, if I remember right, $250. I hope that this helps. Good luck and happy new years!!!

Problem for Sony Grand WEGA KDF-55WF655. Hello,


5 times Red LED blinks means Lamp Driver Error. (KDF-55WF655)
2 possible reasons, either Lamp is gone or Ballast Supply got bad.
Replace lamp first, in most cases it solved the problem.
How old is this TV and did you replaced lamp recently?
Thanks.

I PUT MY SONY GRAND WEGA KF-42SX300U 50 in. lcd


Well we need to have in mind that a generic lamp will give you 3500 to 4500 lamp hours and the Phillips will give you 6000 to 8000 lamp hours ,The lamp itself typically uses AC current and about 15,000 volts to ignite the lamp's mercury2.gif vapor gas. The gases inside the lamp react when electricity charges up the mercury gas creating very bright light. The voltage drops to keep the flow of electricity to the lamp.
The symptom of a bad ballast is that you could hear a constant CLICKING or electrical BUZZING sound,my recomendation is to take out the lamp to physically check for any sings,(shatter fillement,black or grey spots in the fillement or smoke ) you can get good deals at http://www.discount-merchant.com/?click=52978
Please keep us posted,

SONY GRAND WEGA KF-50WE610 can't turn on TV screen.


Ths 5 blinks usually indicate an AKB problem. There is a break in the video path. I'll look up your specific model and post the results here. Please update this if you wish to attempt the repair yourself.

Thanks,

Sony LCD Grand wega black and white picture


12000 hours you are lucky most last 2000 hours
lamp not the usual suspect for this
confirm black and white on all inputs and it will be more sinister, if only one input, it could be the signal source
