I need help. My Sony 50 inch tv is a 2006. The warranty ran out in June 2010. I heard a pop and then it shut off. Now the green light flashes 25 times and turns to the red lamp light. I can't reference...

Pop sound was broken lamp in tv, replace lamp to solve tv issue.
Please recheck model number as KDF-50EA10 seems invalid/ incorrect model number and nearest match is KDF-E50A10
If model number is KDF-E50A10 then required lamp part number is as follows...
F93087500 ... LAMP BLOCK ASSY XL-2400
and available with Sony Accessories Store for $200
Let me know if you have addition question or tv model number is other than above said (KDF-E50A10).

This is caused by a failure of the optical block of your TV. The only way to fix the issue is to replace the whole optical block which is very expensive ($1000+) and time consuming (need to take whole TV apart to replace the part).

The optical block in your model had inherent issues and there is currently a class action lawsuit pending against Sony for this issue. Up to date information reguarding the lawsuit can be found here:

Sony KDF 3LCD Screen has a horizontal orange tint stripe at top

This problem is caused by a defect in the optical block. It causes about 1 - 1.5" tint usually green, orange, or yellow at the top of the screen. The part is very expensive, retails around $600-800 usually. You cannot fix it without replacing the optical block. They did have an extended warranties for this particular issue because of a class action lawsuit on certain models. Call Sony to see if your model is one of the ones they extended the warranties.

Horizontal (dashed) line across screen

On the KDFE55A20 this sounds like a bad Q-Box. I would get an estimate from a Sony authorized servicer as this part may be quite expensive. On the 55A10 model this may be the B-Block and is also quite expensive. Getting an on-sit estimate would be the first step I suggest. Again go with an authorized Sony servicer. Call Sony or go to for customer service. Good Luck
