Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-55WF655 36" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

KDF46E2000 I'm having the same issue with my Sony LCD KDF46E2000 (only had it for 18 months). After about 10 minutes, the tv just shuts itself off and the stand by light blinks. Looks like a defect in Sony's product. There must be some kind of law against them selling defective TVs.

    if it blinks red, the # of blinks = error code

    if it blinks green and comes back up, you need a new lamp

I had a similar problem with my Phillips 42 in. LCD HD TV.

Here's the problem. The Power Supply Board. I opened my TV up(warranty was up of course) and found several bad capacitors. Phillips and several other companies were sold capacitors that although were highly rated failed within 5 years because of a lack of preservatives. All sorts of electronic equipment is now being effected due to these defective capacitors.
Solutions?
1. Take it in and have it fixed
2. Open it up, check the board for faulty capacitors(bulged or leaking) Buy a new Power supply board and install it.
3. Remove PSB, remove faulty capacitors and replace with compatible new ones.

Hope this helps

Sony Dlp, 46" shuts off, cools off, then turns


This is probably a heat issue (assuming you aren't the one turning off the TV and aren't having regular power failures). This TV has two fans to help keep the components cool; if the temperature increases, the TV will shut down to protect those components. Also check if the ventilation slots are blocked and clean the dust off them. (When you have the TV open, you can blow out dust as well - much like dust removal for a desktop CPU.)

For replacement fans, you can go here: http://www.partstore.com/Model/Sony/Sony/KDF46E2000.aspx .

I hope this helps.

Need to replace lamp in my sony kdf46e2000 lcd projection tv.


If you've never replaced the lamp http://www.discount-merchant.com/SearchResults.asp?Search=kdf46e2000 but if you have and it still cycles off, it's most probable that you have a bad ballast which needs to be replaced :)

The lamp may be starting to go, the symptoms you describe are classic warning signs. You could unplug tv let it cool down and check lamp most likely the glass will not look clear maybe a little milky or smoky in areas..dead give away.

KDF-46E2000 turns off then back on by its self


* Most common would be a couple of capacitors in the power supply that are not letting the proper voltage to the lamp.
* The lamp itself is not working properly.
