Sony KDF-E42A10 42" - Do I have to purchase a converter box?
I bought this tv in early 2007 and misplaced the manual. I'm wondering if this tv has a digital tuner in it and if so, how do I engage it? Or do I have to purchase a converter box? I do not have cable nor a satellite dish.

This tv has analog tuner and you need digital tuner in tv to get digital signal in UK, alternate way is to hook cable box with this tv that will convert digital signal into AV output that will connect to AV input of tv to get cable channels.
If you are looking for an owner's manual, you can download it from the Sony website for free. The service and training manuals that show the circuit diagrams and exploded views, you would usually need to purchase. Sony has them or other 3rd party companies carry them too but usually charge you around $20-30.
Lamp replacement is not difficult in Sony KDF-E60A20 TV and procedure is written in user manual. Unscrew two thumb screws at lower corner at back of TV and take off lower front panel, in approx center of lower front of TV, lamp cover is located, unscrew it, remove it and lamp is there, unscrew lamp with hex key (supplied in new lamp box) and take out old lamp, put new lamp and put things back in reverse order. Click Sony Support if you want to download user manual copy of TV. Thanks.
I may be late with this but it souonds once again ike dust in and on the bulb cage. These TV's will turn off by themselves if they over heat. The extra dust(not much) can/will cause the TV to heat up and shutdown for a few seconds to a minute. Depending on the time of year and location of the TV can vary.
Try removing the bulb and cleaning it with compressed air and a micr fiber towel. Of course don't touch the blub itself as the skin oils will cause it to break.
Sony model KDF-E4210 TV works fine for about 20-30 minutes on HMDI video 6. After that, the HD channels scramble (wavy video). I have swapped out and used the component cables and the same thing happens. Time Warner came out to check their box and all checks out.
Coincidentally, this started after I purchased a Wii and go back and forth from Video 2 (wii) to Video 6. Now is happens just on Video 6 after 20-30 minutes. Could this be an issue with the TV?
