Question about Sony KV-36FV26 TV
Ower light comes on green, pic & audio comes on for 10 seconds, screen goes black, power light remains on, tv comes back on after 20 seconds, repeats process. Turn unit off and on - power light blinks red 5 time interval, hit "on" again, power light turns green, tv comes on & goes off as above. Picture very dull-almost looks blacks & grays, audio good. On Sony Blink Code explanations it states 5 red blinks is associated with the AKB circuit, but repairman tells me this is if tv has picture tube (ours doesn't). Done a lot of research, can this be the projection lamp needs replaced? Manual says there's a light that indicates when lamp needs replaced, but it isn't blinking, only power light. It looks like we can replace it ourselves - if so, should we buy one with the housing or just the bulb? Finding them on line for approx. $115-$150, Serviceman wants $200 for bulb & $200 labor! Help!!! thanks so much for your expertise!

Comment posted on May 18, 2009 What is the correct bulb number for the KDF-E55A20 Sony TV? I saw in the book it listed XL-2200 but Sony Accessories Store doesn't have that one listed - what's the diff between the XL-2200U and the XL-2200. Also, if searching websites, there are alot that state GENUINE part and are cheaper than the $200. thanks Dana
