Question about Televison & Video
Sony wega rear projection. quality was great until original bulb went after 4 years last month. tv would not turn on when commanded to and flashing fault lights showed bulb failure. ordered new bulb online and after install noticed picture is very dim , almost unwatchable during daytime. also has the horizantal pinkish and blueish lines at top and bottom of screen, which were not present with original bulb...any suggestions???
Did you use a genuine sony replacement bulb or aftermarket? Often the aftermarket lamps are not up to par with the OEM versions.

Please make sure you have the Lamp seated properly in the set. If you purchased just the lamp without the basket make sure it is Flush against the front of the lamp basket. The light path is being obstructed or not aimed properly. Let me know, hope this helps.

It sounds like you have a bad Blue Polarizer in the light path. I'm sorry but that is something you will have to contact a service center for. It's not something you'll be able to do yourself, I'm sorry, but that's the best advice I can give you.

You have an open thermal fuse in the lamp housing. The fuse has an upgrade and is only accessible from the back of the TV>

Look at Optical Engine Faults before buying a lamp or bulb. Replacement bulb will not repair these problems.
