Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-42WE655 42" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Blowing Lamps I have the Sony Grand KDF-42WE655 (2005 model). The TV failed and by the indicator light, I replaced the lamp ($130.00) after running just a few hours, the TV started to shut off. I could turn it back on but in no time the indicator light was back on. I heard a noise from the lamp area as I tried to turn it on. I removed the replacement lamp and found it shattered like the first lamp. Please give some suggestions as to what the problem may be. At least, if I cannot repair it myself, I will have an idication of the problem when I send it off to be serviced. I am also trying to determine the value of the TV so I can assess how much I am willing to pay for repair. thanks!!

It overheats and pops the Xl-2100u lamp?


by pops? do you mean it explode? how many lamps? it could be the fan that supposed to be ventilating the lamp or it could be the the ballast, why the ballast because the ballast regulates the voltage in order the keep the lamp on, for ignition it sends around 15,000 volts after that it regulates the votage to a small amount of voltage around 5,000 so it could be sending the big amount of voltage all the time never regulates that or it could be regulating and then sending another big amount of voltage over and over until the lamp doesnt handle those changes.

The on lcd little light blink six time


The standby light blinks to indicate problems with the TV. Six blinks indicates an internal problem, I suspect with the lamp. I recommend contacting a Sony repair shop to vacuum out the TV and replace the lamp. Installing it yourself has no bulb warranty and you cannot vacuum it out without taking it apart. Lamps are $250+ each...

Did you replace your lamp with a generic lamp? Many generic lamps do not produce as much light as OEM lamps do. Also, you may have a separate issue causing the picture to appear less clear than before. Check my solutions to other Sony LCD owners who have had problems with their optical blocks( light engines)
