SOURCE: Sony KDF-55xs955 TV will not turn on. Red LED flashes 6 times.

This sounds so simple, but this is what i gathered from Sony's website. Sounds to me like it may be a service issue.

The STANDBY light will flash if the television detects an issue within the television. Some of these issues can be resolved simply by following the steps below to reset the television.
If the issue is still unresolved after following all of the troubleshooting steps, service may be required . Please note the number of times the STANDBY light flashes and relay that information to the service center.

  1. Turn off the television. IMPORTANT: For a projection television that uses an internal lamp, wait 5 minutes after turning off the television to allow the lamp to cool before continuing with the following steps.
  2. Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
  3. Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
  4. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet. NOTE: If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.
  5. Turn on the television.

SOURCE: Projection lamp casing melted.

This will be covered covered under warranty by Sony. If you will call 800-282-2848 you can locate a Sony authorized servicer that should be able to repair this at n/c.

SOURCE: I have a KDF-55XS955 or KDF-60SX955 it has lots of dark blue dots

You are correct. It was under extended warranty from Sony.

Unfortunately, that program ended on December 31, 2008. Your set is no longer covered by Sony for this problem. It is, however, still fixable.

Expect to pay about $500-800.00 for the Light Engine and around $200+ in labor to install it. Once in, though, the light engine will take care of those blue dots.

SOURCE: Our Sony KDF-55XS955 turns off after 60 to 90

That is a definitely a lamp issue - Get a NEW lamp (with casing) online, have it shipped overnight - install according to your user manual (this is a common mainenance issue) and you should be fine. Or just call Sony or go to their website and they'll ship it directly to your home. Best Regards,

55 inch Sony Wega rear projection tv...only stays powered on for a few minutes then goes blank, green light steadily burns and the picture is dark. Is it overheating? What do I need to do to fix this?


If its the model indicated here or one similar(kdf-55xs955) you may be seeing a lamp that is about to fail.

A lot of these just before lamp failure will get very dark and if bad enough the set will even shut off.

Hi,
Lamp is getting weak and TV shuts off and turns on itself because of weak lamp in TV that you see picture and sound fades away for some time until TV reboots.

Please buy Sony original lamp for your Tv safety.
