My tv model Sony LCD projection KDF- 42WE655, the red lamp light in front is blinking and i no longer have any picture. does this mean i need to change the lamp and how do i do this?


It is likely that the lamp is bad, however be it, it may not be all that is wrong. But you would need to change the lamp to see if there are any further problems. There is an access panel on either the side or the back of the set. There may be a retaining screw but if not then the lamp will pull out with it's housing (black). Inspect inside the bulb for breakage. The best place I found to get a bulb w/housing is pureglare.com. If there is other problems then you might need a ballast. This supplies the voltage to the lamp to light it up. Can be difficult to install the ballast. Do a search with the model number on Ebay or shopjimmy.com or google for the ballast after you have tried the lamp.

The blue shadow is a sign of a bad light engine. this is a common problem for this model. Fixing this type of problem is quite expensive. Light engine Costs you several hundred of dollars nearly to the price of new TV set.

Sony LCD Projection TV turning OFF!!!


I also have a Sony KDF-42WE655 42" Lcd television. We just changed the lamp (bulb) several weeks ago and has noticed that everytime we turn on the television it stays on about 30-40 seconds then cuts off. After about 15-20 seconds it cuts itself back on. Weird!! It must have something to do with changing the bulb!?!?
