Question about Sony KDS-60A2000 60" HDTV

1 Answer

Red power light flashed 5 times

Noticed that you can't hear the color wheel spin. TV clicks but does nothing for about 30 sec then clicks off. Checked voltage to ballast 389v dc. Customer had another power supply board, but still same thing.

There is no color wheel. This is an SXRD TV. If you have 389 at the ballast, then your ballast is bad. 5 flashes is a bad lamp driver. No TTL signal return to the mainboard. Put a new ballast in. Do not try and measure ballast output without good high voltage gear. The startup pulse is close to 20,000 volts.

Its small board with few connectors and easy to replace.
You can buy required part from Part Store. You may see image of ballast supply there.

Thats the error for lamp driver error. Which means the Ballast is most likely defective. You can get the replacement ballast for your model at the following link which comes with installation instructions.

Samsung hln617w dlp tv won't turn on. Red temp


Had similar problem. Thought it was the lamp. Examined old lamp but it appeared to be good. Ordered a new one anyway. Changed the lamp but the TV screen would not come on. It would make the usual noise as it was going to come on normally but it would cycle 3 times & then turn off. The LED lights in the front panel would indicate a defective lamp. Then read about the ballast. Changed the ballast & still same problem. Tried starting the TV without the lamp installed & noticed that the color wheel did not spin. Removed old color wheel & discovered it was broken. This appears to be the cause of all of my problems. I wish I new earlier of the test-turn on the TV without the lamp being installed & check to see if the color wheel is spinning. Would have save money on the lamp & ballast.

TV won't stay on


Hello Fonzell!
Regarding the tv turning, my question is, do you hear a clicking sound? if so, it's most probable tio be your ballast, that might not have enough voltage to keep on with your lamp, and that's why it shuts off.
You could try replacing it and seeing if it resolves your issue, I believe they're running around 70 dlls..
have a great one ! :)

I need help with my DLP TV


If you have verified the votages are there at the color wheel and its not spinning the color wheel is most likely defective. the sound you hear when spinning by hand is most likely the bearing but that shouldnt stop it from spinning. but as i said if the supply voltage is present but it still wont spin. the color wheel must be defective.
