You definitely have a bad lamp. Sony rates the lamp life at between 4000 and 8000 hours. There are 3 things that effect the lamp life, listed in order of importance:
1) number of times the lamp is turned on and off. Every time the lamp is first fired, it takes life off the lamp. Customers I see that turn the TV on in the morning, leave it on all day and then turn it off on the evening can get up to 12000 lamp hours
2) ventilation. Be sure you have at least 6 inches of open space all the way around the set and that the vents are clear of dust and debris.
3) power. If the power is interrupted when the set is on, there cannot be a proper cool down cycle. The fans will run after you turn the set off to properly cool it down, if the power is lost this cannot happen. If your power is unreliable, buy a small UPS to let the set finish a cool down cycle

Occasionally a lamp will faill before the average lamp time due to being defective. from your purchase date it sounds like you got about average lamp time. Be sure to purchase AN ORIGINAL SONY LAMP as a replacement, becuase the aftermarket lamps are bad news, Be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!

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.

I also have a Sony KDF 46E2000 that my husband purchased back in November 2006. It's now June, 2010 and for the past two years when I turn the television set on, at the botton left of the screen a box would pop up stating "Projection lamp life is ending, please replace bulb." (or something to that effect). I let it go because I didn't want to have to spend the $150- to buy a new lamp. Well, this morning it finally stopped working. So just as a little information, if you see this box pop up, you don't need to replace it right away. Like I said it was saying that for two years before it did anything. I love this television and it's the only issue we have had with it. I like the fact that the bulb is very easy to replace. Maybe we got lucky and got one of the better tv's since it has lasted us almost four years before having to replace the bulb?

I plug the Mitsubishi WD-52525 TV in and nothing happens. No indicator lights no humm. Power is not getting to it. I checked the lamp, it is ok and in place. Is there something I can do?

Check the fuse, there will be internal fuses (be aware of high voltages maybe present even when unplugged) check for signs of internal damage. If the TV is still under warranty do not remove the back of the TV, get in touch with the supplier. When in doubt take it to an expert for advice!

Not turning on

you need to replace the flyback which is flyback 259296 and also capacitor CP150 and CP114. You can get replacement parts at the following link and they include free step by step instructions with pictures so you can easially repair the set yourself. Heres the link.

No power no lights good fuse...

Try a different power outlet? Possible shut down of DC supply due to short circuit can be heard if listen close at back of TV on plug in or power up with remote for a quick squeel then ticking sound or tick tick tick and nothing.

I have a 3 year old Panasonic CT-32HXC14J TV. It has been working fine until today. When I tried to turn it on the internal (6.3amp/125v fuse) blew. I went to get a new one and could only find a 4 pack...

Hello sjday62

It sounds as if you have a component that has changed value enough in value to cause a high current draw, but has not completely shorted out. this phrase from you "so I did a stupid thing and bypassed the internal fuse and it turned on and worked" Not as stupid as you would think because it confirms what I said above, the 6.3 amp fuse tells me that the current draw normally is about 3 amperes since the normal rule of thumb is to double the value of the current to select the type of fuse. a five amp fuse should as well as a 4 amp fuse (it's best and recommended to use the exact fuse type). Now back to your issue. I would suspect that a transformer in the power chain has developed a shorted winding, or a capacitor begun to develop a short or excessive absorption.

I would suggest that you have the set looked at by a qualified TV technician.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,
