The lamp of course will or should not affect the sound---next time it is cold try it on a rear input---a DVD player etc to see if same issue--this could narrow down where the problem is.

The looks of the bulb are no indication that it's okay. How many hours of operation do you have on that bulb? The bulbs are average rated for 5000 hours, but its been my experience that they usually last on average 3000 hours. Try replacing the bulb and then check and rest the buld hours counter.. Best place I've found for purchasing the bulbs is DLP lampsource. They'll sell you just the bulb without the housing at a dramatic savings. http://www.dlplampsource.com/
To display the lamp time press [ 2 ] nine times.
to reset press [ 3, mute, enter.] Or with the set in standby press [ display, 5, vol up, power ]
then press [ jump 3.]
Hope this helps!

Depending how long you have owned it and if a Lamp was ever replaced, it probably needs to be replaced. You can check with SONY at
1800-222-SONY and see if they could sell and send you one.

SOURCE: is it an easy fix to replace the bulb on a Sony

Indeed it is easy to replace the bulb, unplug the TV first, simply remove the outer cover door, then you need to remove the protective inner door, simply place your finger in the ring pull and lift gentley up and pull, when you have the replacement bulb you need to remove the 2x screws on each side holding the fixing brackets then remove the screw that is located at the bottom where the bulb wires are, once removed then you can remove the casing, undo the retainer bracket screws for the bulb and also disconnect the wires from the bulb, DO NOT touch the new bulb with bare hands you must use rubber inspection gloves as your skin oil will damage the lamp, fit new lamp and re assemble housing and re-fit making sure you rerplace the inner door correctly.

Hi i have a sony lcd projection kdf-e50a12u and as i turn it on the green light flashes for a few minutes untill it turns to red along with the light next to it and stays red?


Sir check the lamp of your projection if already damage, if damage replace the lamp and reset also the lamp hour meter. Remove the screws to open the panel labeled "lamp" on the back of the Sony TV. Remove the screws that hold the lamp in place inside the TV. Pull the lamp out. Let me know what is your observation to the lamp so I can guide you. Good day and best regards.

Hello hmt86,

Welcome and thank you for using FixYa!

This is the backlight bulbs or the inverter board that powers them. Both will need tested, hopefully only the inverter board will need replaced.


Have a great evening!

It seems like the bulb needs to be replaced, the bulb you are looking for is a Phillips UHP 100w/120w 1.0 bulb, you can google the make and modle of the tv and you will find sites for the bulb or send details to info@soundandvisionav.co.uk

Sony bravia KDF-E50A12U rear projecion tv wont turn on


Hi it sounds like it could be an issue with board that powers the lamp ,it's called the ballast.When you put a new lamp in the ballast has to provide more power ,when it starts to go weak it will not light up.Sometimes you can put your old lamp in and will work fine.Try partstore.com they might have it right there.Hvae a blessed one!
