Question about Sony KDF42E2000 42" HDTV

3 Answers

Tv plays for a few minutes then shuts down. the red light blinks.

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!

    Thanks for the advice. after removing the bulb holder. i did an adjustment to the two side metal hooks that locks the bulb holder in place. i also checked for any physical obstructions. then replaced the lamp door, making sure the open close handle moved all the way.
    plugged it in and turned it on . today is the second and it's still
    playing. at the top of the screen is a pinkish translucent line about an inch wide. it's that bad but needs to be resolved any idea?

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.

    You should look at a few of my responses regarding optical block(light engine) problems that Sony has been having with thses TVs. If the pinkish area grows, its likely that the light engine is bad.

73" Mitsubishi DLP. turned on the tv and got only sound, no picture. after a minute it would shut down and red light would pop on the front. replaced bulb and hooked it back up. now it turns on but af


Try cleaning the little fans that keep the bulb cool, the temp sensor will shut it off so not to damage the bulb , the winning sound may be the fan going bad or not working like it should.

I have an LG DLP. that turns off after 15 -30 seconds


If the second light is blinking to orange or red, that is usually the lamp indicator light on an LG DLP tv. That indicates your bulb needs replaced, or something surrounding the bulb has failed (like the cooling fan for the bulb for example) IF you have a spare bulb handy, I'd replace the bulb, keeping in mind if you touch any part of a new bulb with your bare hands, you just cut the life of the bulb by more then half.

Picture cycles off and on


I replaced a burned out xl-2000u bulb with an after-market Philips bulb on my Sony KF60XBR800. After a fews weeks, I started experiencing intermittent black-outs with the "stand by" red light appearing. After a couple weeks it became intolerable. I then purchased an OEM Sony lamp and the problem has been gone for months. I read somewhere that the Sony circuitry monitors either resistance or watts and shuts the thing down for board protection. It was said that it is so sensitive it can can use only the Sony bulb. I'm a believer. If the bulb is going bad, i wouldn't doubt the protection circuit can kick in.

Tv cuts off and green light flashes


Yup, it seems a lamp problem can give a blinking green light over the 10 times (1 - 10 times for diagnostic codes), but in my case rather than replace the bulb if it works for a minute then resets with the green light blinking, do what I did.
Take the lamp out and inspect it, it has breather screens top and bottom, if it cant breath because there clogged with dust, clean them, and you can remove the screens, use q-tips and clean the inside. I saved the cost of a lamp and it's working fine!

Sony LCD television will not power on.


I get 5 blinking red lights for about a minute or so before it powers back down. The Sony TV has a specific light that i presume is supposed to light up when the bulb is out. I'm unsure if this is what it is.
no picture, no sound. tries to boot with green light blinking a few times. then goes to red blinking light, six in all, then waits a few moments, then another 6 blinking red light.
Bulb was already replaced several months ago but we do have the TV on for long periods of time.
