Re: Sony Bravia LCD T.V.

It is most likely a fan (there are 2 to 3 of them in the set) that is making the noise. I doubt seriously that the lamp is causing a buzzing noise. The only other buzzing sound can come from the ballast wich powers the lamp.

I have a Sony 50 inch LCD projection TV model KDF - 2000 when I turn on light goes green and blinks 4 times and then it goes to the red light and it blinks and 3 time series

Usually that means the lamp is bad. If the lamp is new, then try re-seating the cage/housing. If its more than 3 years old, then I would buy a new lamp.

Picture will come on and then go off after a couple minutes

This usually means the Lamp is failing. Replacing the Lamp usually fixes it. I would only use a Sony Replacement.
You can order one from Sony at 1800-222-SONY or you may be able to pick one up from a local Sony Retailer.

I have just replaced the lamp in my sony bravia kf42e200a lcd tv and the power lamp flashes 3 times when i try to start the tv

check the lamp door. There is a switch that the lamp door pushes against that must work before the tv will come on.

No picture, funny noise

The funny noise is probibly the balist trying to strike the lamp. It will try several times to strike the lamp and if it is un successful, the lamp light will begin blinking on the front of the set. If so you have a bad bulb

Tv wont turn on has a funny noise

You likely have a bad lamp. It could also be a bad lamp driver, but I'm betting a lamp change will solve your problem. Buy an original Sony lamp only; the aftermarket replacements are cheaper but you get what you pay for and they can cause problems. Please be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!

Tv will not power up - makes a weird noise and red light blinks constantly.

It sounds like a bad lamp, a bad lamp driver or a combination of the two. Be aware that sometimes a bad lamp driver will blow a perfectly good lamp, so if you're not sure which is causing the problem, replacing BOTH would probably be the best course of action
