Question about Sony KDF42E2000 42" HDTV
I just replaced the dlp bulb in my SONY KDF42E2000 when I turn it on
the screen says the the bulb is nearing the end of it's life and should be replaced soon. plays for a little while and then shuts down. when I first
inserted the the new bulb it wouldn't come on. I tapped it on the back side and the bulb lighted up for the first time. As I attempted to move the tv into place(pushing the stand into viewing position) it went out. the way it stands now. when it is turned on it plays for a few minutes and then shuts down. the red light continues to blink until you push the power button. once to green then to turn it off. This tv is a little more than a year old!

The problem may be the lamp door is not aligned properly. Also, the display message that the lamp is near the end of its life will continue to come up until the lamp hours parameter in the servicer menu is reset. Accessing the service menu requires a code from the remote. I do not recommend that you attempt to do this yourself because you can easily cause irrepairable changes to the TVs operation if you hit the wrong button on the remote.
