Re: television

Why do you make this comment this is clearly a 34 inch direct view tv CRT!
The number of blinks on a sony is a clue to what might be wrong..

Re: television

You probably just need a new lamp. If your tv is that old, im sure you do. I just got a new one from Projector Lamp Services ( it works great... Only took me a few mins to install it too. I missed my TV!!!

Sounds like your television needs to have the lamp replaced. The XL5300 lamp is part number F-9308-870-0 and retails for $299. You can find generic lamps for sale on the internet, but they generally don't last as long as the Sony original. Encompass has that part listed in stock and their phone number is (800) 638-3328. Your owners manual should explain how to replace it, but if you want to hire a technician to come to your house and install it, the labor should be minimal and take 5-10 minutes.

Red light blinking 3 times on Sony xl2400 lamp replacement

I solved this problem myself. You have to continue working with the housing until the connections meet just perfect. It was extremely frustrating but in the end I got it to work.

No picture on my sony kds-50a3000 red blinking light at lamp spot

If by noise, you mean a loud, audible pop--then it's your lamp that imploded.

You should be able to just pop off the cover on the side (right side if you are facing the front of the set), remove the internal lamp cover (if present) and yank (I mean, gently pull) out your lamp.

Look for all the bright particles of glass inside your newly imploded lamp. Replace with a Sony original, as these sets can chew through generic lamps very fast.


Now, if by noise you mean something else, please elaborate.

This sounds like an issue with the optical block assembly. Sony had a problem with this part in a lot of the KF-series television.

They extended the warranty of optical blocks in the KF-42WE620, which doesn't help you but from what your saying this sounds like the issue.

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
