It is likely that the lamp is bad, however be it, it may not be all that is wrong. But you would need to change the lamp to see if there are any further problems. There is an access panel on either the side or the back of the set. There may be a retaining screw but if not then the lamp will pull out with it's housing (black). Inspect inside the bulb for breakage. The best place I found to get a bulb w/housing is pureglare.com. If there is other problems then you might need a ballast. This supplies the voltage to the lamp to light it up. Can be difficult to install the ballast. Do a search with the model number on Ebay or shopjimmy.com or google for the ballast after you have tried the lamp.

I have a Sony KDF-42WE655 was watching it then heard a pop then no picture or sound the led on the front blinks red and green?


Check the lamp of your television. It is possible that the lamp came to its end, to confirm if the lamp is busted, pull the lamp out and for you to see the if lamp filament is broken. if it does, you need to replace the lamp.

My sony kdf-42we655 won't turn on. The red light on the front flashes 5 times in sequence. Has anybody had a similar problem. Thank You


you most likely need to replace the lamp. you can check the lamp by removing it from the front of the tv. if you consult your owners manual it will have instructions on replacing the lamp catridge. 5 red blinks happens when the tv goes into shutdown because the lamp driver doesnt turn on the lamp. sometimes the lamp driver or ballast can be the problem but the lamp is the easiet thing ti check first. good luck

No picture


More info please. I assume you have a new Sony lamp installed? Have you closed the outer door for the lamp? When the set fails to turn on, does the front panel light blink a certain number of times? If so, how many blinks?

Sony tv kf-42we610 tv will not come on and red light blinks three times


Three flashes usually means the lamp cover is not attached securely and the TV has gone into a "stand by" mode, recheck that the lamp,lamp door, and front panel is securely attached.

Good Luck !

Its not the green light that you should be count but the red. How many times is it blinking? Here is a quick update of the errors that are most common.

3x - Lamp switch not engaged
4x - Fans issue
5x - Lamp
6x - Thermal fuse

Tv will shut off and red light will flash 3 times


If its Sony KDF-42WE655 TV that goes to standby and LED blinks 3 times then check Lamp Door that seems not fixed properly.
That happens when lamp replaced in TV.
If its different model number TV, let me know exact model number.
