If the colors are mis-aligned or letters are out of focus, you may need to repair. For mis-alignment you can push the flash-focus button on the front to autoconverge the colors. Replacing the CRTs would cost a fortune. If the picture has just degraded in brightness and clarity, you cold clean it out. You can safely clean the mirror and lenses, it can greatly increase your picture if its dirty. If you unplug your tv you can safely remove the back and gain access to the lenses. All it takes is a philips screwdriver. After you remove the back, you can remove the light barrier between the upper and lower half to free up some room. Take a dry scratch-free cloth and wipe the dust from the lenses. If they're grimy, use a little lens cleaner (liquids used sparingly here, electronics don't like liquids, be careful) You can look up into the top and see if the mirror is dirty. A flashlight shined on it will illuminate the dust/dirt if its there. If you don't smoke you likely won't need to clean the mirror, but it may need it. Use windex or similar for tough grime.. I can usually reach up to get the whole mirror but I've heard of using a swiffer mop to reach the top. Removing the screen is difficult but possible if needed to get inside. Don't touch the back of the screen but lightly with a rag to get cobwebs, etc.

I want to change the lamp. Any advice, directions, words of wisdom ? Thanks Stuart


One word followed by the reasons

DON'T!

Many who think this is just like changing a light globe end up with numerous halo and ring problems on the screen mucking up the picture.
1) There is a matching sequence with the globe
2) it has to be retuned across the screen so thatthere are no shadow areas, rings and halos. So i't's like a focus that is finely set using an instrument to ensure optimum.
3) the lamp hours are reset inside the unit as well as on the screen.

There are 50 peiple currently who changed their own lamps and now have more problems than they need, most times we can't help them because we don;t know what they fiddled with to begin with.

The thought is that it needs to be either cleaned out. Dust build up in it's air intake filter or you probably need another new lamp. Usually when these set's shut themselves down is because they are overheating or they can't maintain the voltage to keep the lamp lit.

Did you replaced lamp in TV recently?

Samsung tv turns of by itself


The lamp can cause this but also a faulty lamp door switch will cause the same thing

Make shure that when you replace the lamp
the lamp door switch is in the up position before the door is put back on

It is probably time to replace the lamp. Be sure to buy an original Sony lamp, as the aftermarket replacement lamps are known to have issues. If you liked this answer be sure to rate it. Thanks!
