Hi Marsat!

Actually both the filter cover and lamp covers have a long straight plastic part which is inserted in small hole. At the end of the holes are micro switches. When you fit the filter cover this switch is pressed and projector knows that it is ok to turn on. Similarly if lamp cover is loose the micro switch is not fully pressed resulting in this message. Tightening it presses the micro swith and the indication vanishes. In your case if plastic parts are intact, lamp cover screw is fully tight, filter is clean and properly seated with a click sound, then may be some micro switch has malfunctioned and you have no option but to take the projector to some qualified repariman.

Screen flickering


A number of possible reasons--from brightness/contrast set too high to a issue with the power supply of the set--a expert would have to examine the set--you might want to call Sony to see if known issue with this model.

The power light is red and the bulb light is blinking red


OK...Did you replace the lamp with a Sony original? If you did, then carefully check that the door is closed properly.

Sony KDS 50a2020. Tv Seems to Dull. not a setting.


Two possibilities:

1. The lamp. When did you last replace it? They will dim over time and lose focus, clarity, brightness and sharpness. If it has been 18-24 months, and this is your main tv, consider replacing it.

It's a F-9308-860-0. They go for about $175.00.

2. Let's say you follow my advice, put in a new lamp and the picture is still dim, dark, dingy and fuzzy? Then you, my friend, need a new Optic Assembly. The thing your lamp shines into and the thing that gives you a picture to look at. They can fail or wear out for all sorts of reasons--too many for me to type out now. But, suffice to say, if you have recently replaced the lamp (less than 6 months) and are experiencing a drop in brightness, consider getting on the phone with Sony. Even if you are out of warranty, your set is covered against Optic failure until June 30, 2010.

Hope this helps.

Picture is dark


Adjust video settings:
  1. Press Wega Gate
  2. Select Settings
  3. Highlight Video
  4. Press + to select
  5. Adjust/increase the brightness.
  6. Press Wega gate to exit.
If picture is still dark, you need to replace the lamp again. Sony recommends that you replace the lamp:
  1. After approximately 8,000 hours of use.
  2. When the screen becomes dark or the color becomes unusual.
  3. When the lamp indicator on the front of the TV flashes.

TV Picture Goes Black


I had the same exact problem.
I removed the bulb and cleaned it. There is a small screen at the top of the bulb and it was covered with dust. Once it was cleaned I replaced the bulb and it solved the problem.
Thanks to those who posted the solutions
