Question about Sony Grand WEGA KF50XBR800 50" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

My Sony KF50XBR800 2002 model goes into Stand By mode after being on for about 30-60 seconds, the stand by light flashes in irregular sequences of 5-more then 10 flashes, (don't know what that means). Then it comes back on for another 30-60 seconds, and the cycle repeats. I have already replaced the bulb 15 months ago. I do hear the fan. It may have been subject to a surge potentially affecting any processors, as we did have severe weather last night and the trouble began immediately after. Any suggestions?

Replacement lamps do not last long. Unless it is the Sony MFG lamp, they only last about a year or so with normal use. Otherwise, the only other suggestion I could give you would be to replace the ballast. Not to expensive either, 40-50. hope this helps as well

Sony Vega KDF-E5OA10,picture will not come on, tv goes off.


There is a real good chance that the lamp fan is not turning. If you look with a flashlight in the vent on the left side looking at the rear of the set and have someone turn on the unit, see if it spins. if it doesnt, the protect circuit in the tv will not let the set turn on. Replacing the fan will cure the proplem if it is not turning.
Hope this helps,
