Question about Sony KDS-60A2000 60" HDTV

1 Answer

Won't turn on. Green power light blinks for 30 seconds and then red lamp light blinks constantly

I assume this is a lamp problem, the timing is right (2 years old), but there were no warning signs. No dimming, no messages. Just watching TV fine, then the screen goes black and we only have audio. Turn it off and back on and it wont start up. Green power light blinks repeatedly for 30 seconds (or so) then the red Lamp light blinks forever. Tried unplugging, tried taking out the lamp (no signs of damage that I can tell on the lamp) and re-seating it.

I have an extended warranty, but it doesn't cover lamps so I want to be sure before I order one.

    It was the lamp... when I looked close at the bulb, the filament had a break in it. Can you tell me more about the problems that OEM lamps can cause? I opted for OEM because I could get it faster, but I may order a sony lamp online and just keep this OEM for an extra.

If the lamp light is lit, it is likely a bad lamp. If you remove the lamp from the set, you will either see shards of glass in the housing and/or a very cloudy reflector (it should look like a mirror). Be sure to use an original Sony lamp as the replacements are trouble makers. Please be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!

    My personal experience with aftermarket lamps has been that either the customer complains that the lamp only lasted a couple of months or that the picture isn't as bright as it was with an original lamp. I have heard horror stories from other techs about aftermarket lamps taking out lamp ballast/lamp drivers and even causing a set not to turn on.

Trying to replace lamp in HDTV and having trouble. Does not function correctly after putting in new bulb. Boots up and then visuals go black and the green power light keeps flashing. Help?


Panasonic DLP TV Bulbs

Make sure its an original Osram or Philips bulb inside the housing. If its a cheap lamp it will act this way. If it is an original lamp, then you may have a power supply issue. It shouldn't affect your TV but you may want to try resetting the lamp timer by following the instructions that came with the lamp.

While pressing the VOL- button on the projection display, hold down the number 0 button on the remote control at the same time for more than 5 seconds.

I have a sony w252 mp3 player and i erased every thing in it but its memory still seems to be full... how can i format the all memory....


Hi,

Formatting is available only while playback is stopped.
If the OPR lamp lights red due to low remaining battery power, the player cannot be formatted.
All data stored on the player will be erased.
The Content Transfer software included with the player will also be deleted.
If necessary, download Content Transfer from the customer support web site.
The settings of shuffle playback, playlist playback, ZAPPIN playback, and AVLS (volume limit) also return to their defaults.
Follow the steps below to format the Player.
1 Unite the left and right parts to turn off the player.
2 Separate the left and right parts.
3 Press and hold the jog lever for about 15 seconds until the status lamp blinks quickly. Release the jog lever. The OPR lamp lights red.
4 Move the jog lever forward or backward within 30 seconds after the OPR lamp lights red. The status lamp turns off. The OPR lamp lights alternately green and red each time you move the jog lever.
5 Press the jog lever while the OPR lamp lights green. The OPR lamp blinks green quickly and formatting is executed. When the OPR lamp turns off, formatting is complete. If you press the jog lever while the OPR lamp lights red, or if 30 seconds have passed, formatting will be canceled.

Thanks for contacting FixYa.

I own a Samsung HL-R5067W 50'' DLP. Set is about 3 years old. Recently I heard a loud pop while viewing, picture distorted, but never went blank. I turned set off. When turned on again a loud whining noise...


Check your color wheel. There is a DIY guide for replacing the color wheel. Mine did the same thing yours is and my color wheel was all busted up. Unfortunately after replacing the color wheel my set continues to do the same thing, but this could mean I need to replace the ballast as well.

The $1200 was for the lcd engine not the lamp. You should change the lamp. The buzz is the power supply trying to light the lamp.
