Sony xl-2100u lamp

The red "LAMP" light is flashing on my Sony KF-42WE610 tv. Before I buy a new lamp, I would like to know if the lamp is actually bad or not. Can you tell me how to test the lamp with a volt-ohm meter? Do you know if there is any other problem(s) besides the lamp going bad that could make the LAMP light flash? i switch my telly on after half hour the telly goes of and the light flashes green and red continuos

Refer to your owners manual on lamp replacement. Remove the old lamp and look at it. If it looks "blown" (like a flashbulb) then it is defenitely defective.

Replace Lamp Flashing


Clean the cooling fans, specifically the lamp cooling fan located inside the rear cover, above the optical blocker. This is easily blocked with dust and causes overheating of lamps/shortened life.

    Some of the ICs on the power supply block are damaged. This can possibly due to high voltage or defective IC. What you can do now is to get a new PS block. If you can get me the part number i can help you find it..

    you cant test the lamp the only way for sure to know is if the lamp exploded and you can tell that by looking down inside the lamp, yes there are other things like ballest and engine lamp, sony also has a recall on some of the sets, however all that info is at work so i don't know if this set is one of them, contact me on Monday and i can tell you more.
