I have a sony kdf 50e-2000 the green light goes on then it goes to thr red blinking lamp light. I have no sound or picture. If I replace the lamp light will I get sound and a picture again?


Hi,
Yes, if you have not replaced the lamp since you purchased this TV.
Lamps usually last about 6000 hours.
I've seen lamps last much longer than 6000Hrs, it all depends on the usage.
Remove the lamp from the TV and do a visual inspection, see if there's a crack on the glass or the bulb.
If the TV is few years old then the Lamp may be bad.

For a new Lamp: 800 638-3328

DO NOT BUY the lamp from ebay

Good luck to you.

Sansung model 56 Inch hpl5663w first had a buzzing sound the tv repair man said it might be a color wheel but the tv played well except for the low buzzing sound . then one night the picture went black and...


Hi Charles,

Sorry for the late reply, I'm offline upon purchasing my service.
You have said that you can hear a low buzzing sound before the unit gone to subsequent shutdown and the lamp blinks green(meaning that the unit try to turn on the lamp for consecutive attempts but not generally mean that the lamp itself is faulty.) and the temp led light come on.

As a matter of fact all the information you have mentioned linked to the symptoms you've encountered right now. A low buzzing sound might be caused by faulty FAN inside the unit that trigger the error code (blinking of the standby/temp led light) and turns off the unit automatically due to thermal protection circuit.
However, the technician might be true also that the buzzing sound came from the faulty color wheel. To confirm it, you have to verify where the buzzing sound came from. Color wheel is in front of the lamp assembly. Faulty color wheel can produce the same symptoms you've encountered right now but most of the time, it shows 3 blinking led light at the front panel (Timer, Lamp, standby/Temp).

I would advice you to open the back cover of your unit, fixed the lamp door safety switch with the tape to make it in closed position( if it is on open position the unit will not power up), and then turn on the unit and observe the fans if will spin or not, and check also where the buzzing sound came from before the unit gone to shutdown.
I've suspected that the fault came from the fan based on the led light flashes. Please let me know what you will discover after following the steps above to verify where the exact fault came from. Also, let me know the exact status of the led light at the front panel, (Timer, Lamp, standby/Temp ), which of them lit solid/blinking, it will help us to narrow the caused of the symptoms.

No power. No lights.


I have the exact same problem.
TV was working fine (if you call having to deal with blinking lights of death and multiple starrt up errors...) - but I powered through it all.
This TV is 6 years old and started acting up after the 4-year extended warranty ran out.
This morning I went to turn it on and nothing.
Hmmm... Got my manual to count the blinking light code...
Whoops. No lights. Nothing. Checked plug. Checked power.
Uninstalled and installed lamp. Checked plug and power again.
Nothing.
Not one stinking light. No power to fan. Nothing.

How does a TV just DIE???

Toshiba 56hm66 New lamp worked last night, wont boot up again


You now have a defective lamp ballast board. It sometimes is the root cause of lamp failures in these sets. The problem here is that Toshiba does not sell the ballast board independently from the larger, more expensive light engine assy. Call Best Buy back and get a servicer out there. He may have to take the ballast board out of your TV and send it out for rebuilding.

Won't turn on. Green power light blinks for 30 seconds and then red lamp light blinks constantly


If the lamp light is lit, it is likely a bad lamp. If you remove the lamp from the set, you will either see shards of glass in the housing and/or a very cloudy reflector (it should look like a mirror). Be sure to use an original Sony lamp as the replacements are trouble makers. Please be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!

My set switches from low lamp to bright lamp on its own constantly


I just got mine back from the shop withe a similar issue. The picture would dim especially with dark scenes and you could actually hear the lamp popping and clicking. It was not consistent enough that I had to video tape the issue for the technicians. In short, they decided that the ballast was faulty, unfortunately, the only way to replace the ballast is to replace the entire light engine. The part is about $320 and they also replaced the lamp for $150. The extended warranty would have only covered parts I believe so you may have ended up OK.
