Lamp replaced, and warning to replace lamp message still shows

Sony projector, running through DVD / VHS player Lamp replaced (correct lamp type), and the instruction in the manual states that the user should press the "reset" left arrow, right arrow, and "enter" buttons for less than 5 seconds for each. This has been done correctly, but the warning message to replace the lamp still comes up when the projector is turned on. Pressing any button on the remote control will make the warning message go away, but it returns the next time the projector is turned on. Also, there is a bright blue tinge to the right hand portion of the image projected, which appeared prior to the lamp being replaced. This blue tinge remains even when I change the type of screen type to the likes of dynamic, or cinema, but if I change it to a shorter screen, the blue tinge stays in the same place and in the background.

SOURCE: TV suddenly doesn't respond to Sony remote & power button on Satellite remote.

I am having the same problem with the "initial setup" screen flashing repeatedly/ intermittently. It's not a problem with the remote. In the research I have done online, it seems as though this is a common/known problem with the Wegas that will require a service visit. Apparently the problem is a defective receiver chip. The best thread I found is at: I've seen some speculation that it is caused by windex or cleaning fluid dripping down when the screen is cleaned and corroding one of the internal components. That's not applicable in my case, since I always just clean the screen with a microfiber dusting cloth. So, I guess I will be calling a repairman and spending $$$ to fix as it is now flashing up so often as to be unwatchable. Ridiculous, I think, given that my TV is only 3 years old!!

SOURCE: KF 42WE610 turns on for two seconds, then goes black

no, had the same problem. Its the lamp ballast also called the lamp power block. It supplies power to the lamp, any how some repair shop wanted $450 to fix it, so i ordered the part from sony, part #146879816 ($116.25), trust me this is the part I double checked with many different places. Any how fixed it my self took about 15 minutes, just take the back cover off and the part is right there just kind of follow the screws and the 3 wires, super easy job, I suggest you replace the bulb at the same time, dont by a cheap bulb just get it from sony

Some of the ICs on the power supply block are damaged. This can possibly due to high voltage or defective IC. What you can do now is to get a new PS block. If you can get me the part number i can help you find it..
