Anyway, a new lamp is paid for and will arrive tomorrow. Hopefully that is it. My skepticism is because the lamp is not actually dead.
Hey whit, can we get an update on the situation?
I'm having a similar issue with my Sony Grand Wega KF-42WE610.
The TV was purchased when it first came out 4 years ago.
It has been used probably 4 to 6 hours per day since then.
I have yet to replace the lamp. Now I got major issues.
When I turn on the unit, the power/standby light flashes green for about 30 seconds.
During this time, there is no sound and no picture.
Suddenly the picture and sound will come on, but only for 1 or 2 seconds.
It repeats this sequence one more time. After the picture goes out the second time, it doesn't come back.
Now the power/standby light flashes red for a minute or two. Finally the unit turns off and stays red.
If it is a bulb/lamp issue, are you supposed to hear sound?
