You have to reset the lamp timer per the manufacturer's instructions. Reset procedure usually comes with the lamp.

    1. Press the Menu button (use the one on top of the projector if you can--it's a little easier than the remote)
    2. Arrow to OPTION and press the right arrow (if you do not see OPTION, arrow to Advanced menu, press the right arrow, and then arrow to OPTION and press the right arrow)
    3. Arrow to LAMP TIME
    4. Press and hold the right arrow for 3 seconds
    5. Up arrow to RESET

    Ah, I thought you were getting some display. Sorry.

    While it's possible the lamp has already gone bad, I suspect that the lamp ballast, or LPSU has a problem. Could be caused by lightning or power surges. I'm afraid you're going to have to get someone to take a look under the hood.

Sony projection tv...Screen blinks on and off to black several times a minute...audio and everything else is fine


It sounds like either the inverter board or lamp are the problem. I would sway more towards the inverter as when the lamps die they normally do it properly.

Before going further; try a hard reset first. If it does not help you, replace the main digital board. There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; visit the site linked here.

My sony wega kf-50E200A tv keeps turning off. during each cycle the green light blinks 42 times and the tv comes on again for about 3 minutes and it happens all over again


More than likely the power supply is defective, but without testing and the repair manual that is just a guess, you make the decision to replace or repair the TV.
