1 Answer

Low brightness on my tv

I think my lamp may have gone bad, it's not out, just really dim. I have a 52" sony Vega kdf-50we655.
I'm a handy person, should I attempt something like this, if so, where is the best place to buy the lamp, and what lamp? There are so many for sale! Thanks so much, Amalio Gurcsik

Many times the symptom of low brightness on these TVs is that the lamp is getting old and not producing the light output it once had. Start there and get back to me if there is still an issue.

My 3LCD model KDF-E55A20 is having problems of screen going black for minute or two then picture coming back. Had lamps replace about 3 yrs ago any suggestions


Hi I think you have two problems right now one of them is the lamp, if you replaced it 3 years ago.
two the ballast board I think that your ballast has gone bad and it is not sending enough energy to maintain the lamp on and that is the reason it turns off and on.
At this point I would have to say replace the lamp and the ballast and your TV will be working just fine

I have a Sony grand wega KDF-50we655. The picture was dim/dark etc. as suggested I replaced the lamp. Not much change. I did notice when the screen was White the left side had green in it and the otherside...


These tvs are LCD they have no tube to fill or color wheel.
You need to clean the glass light filters and lens.
If you remove the back and unplug the 9 plugs that go to the fans and LCD board/light housing it has 4 screws that hold it in to the front of the tv. 30 min Job.

Tv brightness/vibrant


Most of the projection lamps are recommended to be replaced after 2 years. The older they get the more dim they will become. I would suggest replacing the lamp again. Some of the aftermarket lamps do not work as well as the factory replacement. I always spend the extra money and get one from Samsung.
