Question about Sony Grand WEGA KF50WE610 50" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

TV Turns off and on continuously

We were watching the TV for several hours, then it turned off. A minute or two later it turns itself back on. Another two minutes goes by and it turns off again. This keeps repeating until we turn off the television with our remote. We replaced the lamp about a year ago.

This sounds like a SMPS overcurrent problem, or it may be a problem with the processor that controls the front panel controls. I would tend to lean towards to overcurrent possibility.

If you have a background in electronics I would suggest that you get the schematic for the set and take measurements of the SMPS (Switched Mode Power Supply) circuit and determine if the overcurrent optoisolator is being activated. the signs would be that the diode foreward bias voltage would be .7volts across the diode and the phototransistor will be in an on condition. If you do have an overcurrent problem this is a sign that a component is over driving either due to a short of someother event. The important thing is to use the schematic and a multimeter to track the problem down. Now if you do not have electronics experience, I would advise taking the set to the shop for repair.

I hope this helps,
Thank you,

Power turn off after 45 minutes to 1 hour used


Check the "Sleep Timer" settings. If set to 45 minutes then TV would automatically turn itself off 45 minutes from being turned on. The variance in the "on" times is due to the TV turning itself off after not getting a signal from the remote for fifteen minutes.

Good luck,

It's probably a cracked solder joint in the power supply / horizonal drive stages. As the unit heats up the joint is seperating and breaking connection. It could also be a component failing when it gets hot. Usually the voltage regulator or Horizonal Output Transistor (both mount to heat sinks).

If you know how to solder and want to tinker, unplug the set for a couple days (to let the power capacitors discharge) and resolder and crystalized it cracked joints on the board(s) where the power stages, and flyback transformer are located.

If you decide to operate the set with the back off, please be careful. The high voltage on a TV can be 30,000+ volts.

Hope that helps,

TV Turns off and on


How long since the last time the bulb was replaced? It sounds like the bulb is overheating and triggering a safety shutdown.

It's probably in need of nothing more than a good cleaning (open it up, clean off the boards with a can of air) and *may* be time to replace the bulb.
