I have SONY KDF-50E2000 about 15 months old with expired warranty. One day it just refused to turn on. I have green power light for couple seconds, after that it starts blinking red 3 times with interval. I tried everything, replaced lamp, check lamp door. Nothing helped. If somebody knows wthat to do to fix it, please, help.

    I have a sony KDF-50E2000 for about 3 years. I only replaced the bulb 6 months ago. Now the TV plays fine for a while some times even hours and then goes to stand by mode and the power red light blinks 3 times. If I turn the TV back on it works for a while and then does the same thing. Can some one please help. I'm pretty handy.
    Thank you

As you said power light blinks 3 times and Manual says its error code of improper fix of lamp cover. Please recheck Lamp Cover and install / put it properly.

Blue dots increasing on Screen.


Defective light engine. I would start looking into a new set. Most DLP mfg's have stopped production because of new technology and high failure rate of the light engines. It's not worth the investment.....Sorry!

Yellow-green spot in center of screen


Defective light engine. Contact Sony support. They warrantied a lot of these sets even after the warranty had expired because of so many going bad after 3-4 yrs. Have the complete model and serial number ready when you call them.

Goes off and on


I replaced the lamp today in my KDF-60XS955 and it has worked perfectly since then. I purchased the lamp from sony, costs more but I got the correct part. Might be your problem since I had similar symtoms. 30 green flashes and picture/sound cycled off and on about every thirty seconds. Good luck. Chrismickey

My Sony comes on then both sound and picture goes black.


After being on a little while, the screen goes black (no audio as well) for 20 to 30 seconds. Green light stays on. Then, picture comes back on and takes a couple of seconds to get up to full brightness. About 5 seconds or so after the video comes back, the audio returns.

Until this morning, has only happened a couple of times a day, now happening more often. About 3 times in last 20 minutes.

KDF-E55A20 is about 3 years old.

Sony Wega kdf-55wf655 rear projection set keeps turning on and off


If picture quality is poor, be sure you aligned the bulb in the correct manner and be sure the cover for the bulb is not loose. Also, you might want to re check you picture setting as it might have gotten reset when you pulled the plug (I hope you pulled the plug when replacing the bulb).
Heres another solution (maybe temporary) to the problem of no picture and no sound for 30 seconds. I had my tv's power saving setting on "standard" before. After I switched it to "reduced", the problem was fixed. It has been almost two weeks without the problem. I think its a good fix until the new bulb comes in the mail.

There is a lamp driver error in your TV set. Most likely the ballast circuit for the bulb. Depending on who you take the set to, you will pay anywhere from 300 to 500 bucks to have this set repaired. This is why i recommend an extended warranty on all of these types of TV sets. This repair will involve replacing a board, and it could be one out of three of the differant boards that control the lamp. good Luck.
