Question about Sony KDF-E55A20 55 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Very faint picture- no sound

I have had my tv for about 15 months and this morning I have a very, very faint picture with sound that will stay on for about two minutes and then go out for about a minute, coming back on. The power button is not blinking red at all. When I wint to check it out to reconfirm just now the lamp button started to blink. Any idea how much I should be prepared to pay?

If the red lamp light is blinking the lamp is probably shot. The pricing of the lamp varies from $200 and up plus installation. Or you can buy the lamp and install yourself. See the owners manual on instructions to replace the lamp.

Dp32648 picture goes black, tv stays on with sound.

Dim the lights in the room, turn on the set and shine a bright flashlight on the screen. Do you see a faint picture? If you see a faint picture, you have a backlight fault. Could be several things, you could have a bad backlamp, defective inverter, defective 24vdc power supply, or a faulty main board. I would highly recommend you get a diagnosis
