Re: Lamp light blinks after lamp replacement

I have the service manual and it shows two door switches Dr 1 is in the back of the set on rt bottom below the temp. sensor. Dr 2 is at the front panel where you open it to replace the lamp. If one of these switches are open, it would show a lamp problem. If you have a Muiltimeter and can get to the switches see if one of them is open. Hope this is helpful.

3 times red light blinking indicates that Lamp Cover has not been fixed in its location properly after lamp replacement.
Please make sure lamp cover (its first thing that was removed to replace lamp) is installed securely.

Sony Wega KF-42E200A Projection Bulb

New bulb is just fine.
3 blink shows that lamp cover after replacement of bulb in TV is not fixed properly or not seated well in its position.
Put new bulb and carefully place back lamp cover in its position because lamp cover will press tinny safety switch inside that will send signal to system control of TV that lamp is installed properly.
Turn On TV and get vivid picture of Sony.

Sony kdf e50 a60 when TV is turned on picture goes off almost immedately and red light starts blinking in stand by mode.

Red light blinking is an indication of lamp problem. Check and secure tightly the following:
  1. Outside lamp cover
  2. Lamp door
  3. Lamp
If all of the above does not solve the problem, you need to replace the lamp. Let the lamp to cool for 30 minutes after unplugging. Use XL-2400 replacement lamp.
  1. Remove the outside lamp cover.
  2. Remove the lamp door.
  3. Pullout the lamp
  4. Hook a finger through the loop of the lamp handle and pull the handle upwards. Then pull the lamp straight out.
  5. Mount the new lamp securely.
  6. Reattach the lamp door. Turn the knob back to "CLOSE" and secure the cover.
  7. Put the outside lamp cover back in its place.
