Question about Sony KDF-50E3000 Television

1 Answer

I have a Sony KDF-50E-3000 that takes about an hour to warm up before the picture will come on. I replaced the bulb twice. Once with an after market product and then with a Phillips bulb. It does the same thing with both bulbs. During the hour that it takes to warm up the sounds works intermittently.

If the lamps have been ruled out then it MAY be the Ballast that powers the lamp, no easy way short of replacement of that board to know, You might want to contact Sony to see if this is a known issue in their database for this model.

SOURCE: Red Light Flashes twice KDF-E50A10

I just went through the same problem. I replaced the bulb myself and when i put it back together it turns on then goes out. I had 3 red lights. i checked the trap door and the lamp assembly many times and it wasn't that. I finally took it to a repair place and they told me it was a power supply issue. $200.00 total to fix. Works fine now.
Hope this helps a little...

SD Tech,
With your kind permission if I may provide info...
3 times red light blinking shows that lamp cover has not been fixed in its place securely after lamp replacement.
Make sure lamp cover, its the first plastic cover that was removed to replace lamp, is back in its position properly then turn On tv.
This plastic lamp cover engages safety micro switch inside tv cabinet.

Power light once, then power and OPC twice simultaneously. what would that be?


Hey Vince, not sure of your model, but this may help. Last year, my older Sony started acting up. I would hit the power button and the red light would flash, fan would come on, no picture and then would power down. I bought a replacement bulb from Amazon and that solved it! Still using it today! Hope this helps! http://www.amazon.com/KDF-42WE655-KDF-50WE655-KDF-60XBR950-KDF-70XBR950-KDF-60X8R950/dp/B003ISY34U/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1386773313&sr=8-2&keywords=Sony+replacement+bulb&tag=donations09-20

I have a sony kdf 50e-2000 the green light goes on then it goes to thr red blinking lamp light. I have no sound or picture. If I replace the lamp light will I get sound and a picture again?


Hi,
Yes, if you have not replaced the lamp since you purchased this TV.
Lamps usually last about 6000 hours.
I've seen lamps last much longer than 6000Hrs, it all depends on the usage.
Remove the lamp from the TV and do a visual inspection, see if there's a crack on the glass or the bulb.
If the TV is few years old then the Lamp may be bad.

For a new Lamp: 800 638-3328

DO NOT BUY the lamp from ebay

Good luck to you.

I have only had my sony tv for 2 half years and it needs a bloody lamp already whats going on with sony it was one of the leading companys now its gone right down hill i should not have to pay out already...


Hi I am Vortash sorry to say lamps are notoriously thee major cause for 90% of projection tv failiures , and unfortunately you can never guess how long they will last .
Yes sure they say they will run for 3000 hours but not always as factors like posistion and airflow to the set will alter the opperating characteristics of a lamp the hotter they get the shorter they last , thats why there is no guarantee with a bulb once it is out of the packet . The next bulb you buy may last 3 years or it may last 2 or even 1 , so if you want your b8ulbs to last check that your set has a good airflow around it and that the fans are working correctly , that will pro;ong the life of your bulb .. regards Vortash

KDF-60XS955 shuts off intermittingly and red light flashes 5 times.


My KDF 60XS955 turned on and off like the above complaints. I had an appointment with a Sony Repair specialist but thought that since my bulb was getting really old and taking too long to warm up, I would change it before he came and tried to sell me one at retail cost. I then noticed that the set didn't turn off any more. I ran it that way for a week and then decided to put the old bulb back in and see what happened. Within 1/2 hour it had turned off twice so I changed it back and said that fixed it. I cancelled the sony tech and saved some money. I hope this works for some of you also.

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!
