Question about Televison & Video
It is interesting to me many people who today post questions do not have a brand and model number: those are really needed to try to provide some real help, can you?

Not an easy fix....requires chassis pull, careful soldering and
replacement of parts and fuses.....would you like step-by-step?

Ok, the solution for all our problems is in fact the lamp. I finally replaced my lamp and no problems to report. Sony should do something about this because I know I didn't have 8,000 hours on the lamp and it sounds like no one else has either. I tell you what, I'm NEVER buying another Sony product ever again. Not only did I have this problem but I bought a Sony Blu-Ray disc dvd player and I've had nothing but problems out of it. I keep getting firmware updates for it but it doesn't help and recently I bought a Sony Walkman MP3 player and for no reason it quit working, it would power up and immediately power off. Sony did replace it though (but of course it was only $70 compared to the prices of the tv and dvd player).
Anyway, if you are still having problems with your tv, the lamp door is on the right side, pop it open and there will be another door with a knob on it. Turn that knob counter clockwise to unlock it and pull it out. Inside that door you will see the handle for the lamp, put your finger through the loop and pull up and out at the same time, to put in the new lamp, push lamp straight in until it won't go in any further and puch down, it should then be locked in place. Replace both inner door and outer door and you are good to go.
Someone mentioned something about cleaning the dust from around the lamp. I tried that before I got my new lamp. It only worked for a day and gave out again. Hope this helps.

You definitely have a bad lamp. Sony rates the lamp life at between 4000 and 8000 hours. There are 3 things that effect the lamp life, listed in order of importance:
1) number of times the lamp is turned on and off. Every time the lamp is first fired, it takes life off the lamp. Customers I see that turn the TV on in the morning, leave it on all day and then turn it off on the evening can get up to 12000 lamp hours
2) ventilation. Be sure you have at least 6 inches of open space all the way around the set and that the vents are clear of dust and debris.
3) power. If the power is interrupted when the set is on, there cannot be a proper cool down cycle. The fans will run after you turn the set off to properly cool it down, if the power is lost this cannot happen. If your power is unreliable, buy a small UPS to let the set finish a cool down cycle
Occasionally a lamp will faill before the average lamp time due to being defective. from your purchase date it sounds like you got about average lamp time. Be sure to purchase AN ORIGINAL SONY LAMP as a replacement, becuase the aftermarket lamps are bad news, Be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!

I am using this great LCD for about an year. But few times in the past my LCD didnt show up the display though the Green light was still ON, turning off the LCD and opening it again always solved the problem. But now My LCD completely went blank. Turning off/on didnt work at all now. I've tried couple of other tweaks mentioned on this site but they didnt work. I am just seeing a blank screen with green light ON. and ya theres a very low hissing sound coming from the LCD.
