Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-60XS955 60" Rear Projection HDTV

Picture Was Getting Slightly Dark For 2 Days, Now Nothing But Flashing Red Light

My 2.5 year old Sony has finally coughed up a problem.

There was a pop sound and then the TV screen went black this evening. First the red LED flashed 5X and kept repeating this. I unplugged the set and plugged it back in and now it's on / off, on / off and repeating.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you. I ordered a lamp with housing from ebay for around $120 or so. I'll close the loop after I install it.

It sounds like your lamp finally went out.
you might want to have someone check, just to make sure.

Tv will not turn on


For dark picture I need to ask one question, How long ago you replaced its lamp? one year, two years?

Picture brightness is depends on lamp in LCD rear projection (DLP) TVs and if lamp got weak in generating light, you will see dark picture.

I would recommend to replace lamp and buy Sony original lamp from Sony Accessories Store.

Required lamp part number is as follows..
F93087500 LAMP BLOCK ASSY XL-2400
and price is $200
Good luck.

Red hue on TV


I have the same problem. Researching a replacement lamp. After 5 years the lapms expire and it is the most likely failure. Confirm with a local service person using the Sony website to locate a service center.

Replacent in not difficult but the bulbs are >$200. Cheaper than a new TV.
