Question about Sony Televison & Video

1 Answer

Picture not coming on after may times and then it comes on?

I have a situation where the TV takes several times to get the picture to come on. It blinks in standbay and then the Lamp indicator is blinking..
Yesterday, I was not able to get the TV to come on at all after trying many times during the day. The LAMP light just continued to Blink.

This morning when I tried it, it came right on?

Is this a lamp problem? or some other problem? The picture is not very bright and not as good as it used to be.

Thanks for updates.
Its time to replace Lamp of TV and procedure is written in user manual if you want to do it yourself.

You can buy new lamp XL-2000U from Sony Accessories Store for $200

Please purchase Sony original Lamp for your TV for good performance and avoid aftermarket or compatible lamps.

Good luck.

Capacitors do not always blow their tops or start leaking. I came across one in a DVD power supply that looked brand new but when it was tested with a cap tester it was totally bogus.
