Re: Lamp Failure

Could be a few different things, one that you can check is the lamp door switch, if the door that covers the lamp is not closed correctly or the switch is not in the right position the set will give your symptom, the only other reason would be a bad ballast and that`s not something you can do, you`ll have to call a tech for that, check the lamp door switch it may be all that`s wrong, good luck & Happy Holidays

The lamp will not fix the green spots. That is due to bad polarizers in the optic block. The lamp is only a white light.

According to the manual you are not getting enough airflow which would explain the optic block failure. Make sure the TV has lots of space for air around it and is not inside a cabinet that would overheat it.

You haven't specified here; whether you have replaced the lamp ballast along with new lamp. In most cases, this should also be replaced with the lamp. A faulty ballast can cause to a lamp failure.

Most often, I find when servicing these televisions, the lamp has failed but it was due to poor fan circulation. This television has at least 3 if not 4 fans. If you take off the back and find these fans are filled with impacted dust, the fan may be causing the failure. Also check to be certain your door safety switch is making good contact. These tips should ber of assistance but check your fans. A clean inside of a tv is a happy tv!

Likely one of two things bad here. -- a bad color wheel in the light engine is not allowing the lamp to fire, or bad capacitors on the power supply is preventing the start up process from being completed. I have seen both, but more power supply issues. The PS is up front, behind the DM module and formatter module in the "box".

Techs HATE these sets!! The main reason is that ALL of the "stuff" is inside a bunch of "boxes" that shield things, but at the SAME time--they make repair a "#itch and ALSO overheat EVERYTHING!! Hopefully--you can find one willing to take a look at your set, if not under a service plan.

Our 52" widescreen LCD TV just quit working.

This set uses a lamp ( not picture tubes ) The part # is TS-CL110U. Almost certainly it is bad. They are easily obtainable and you can easily change it yourself.

Sony KDF-46E2000 - Screen Goes Blank

The lamp can cause the picture to cycle without spitting out a lamp error. I'd replace the lamp and clean out the dust/dirt from fans, etc to hopefully resolve your issues.

Sony KDF-46E2000 - Screen Goes Blank

You definitely have a bad lamp. Sony rates the lamp life at between 4000 and 8000 hours. There are 3 things that effect the lamp life, listed in order of importance:
1) number of times the lamp is turned on and off. Every time the lamp is first fired, it takes life off the lamp. Customers I see that turn the TV on in the morning, leave it on all day and then turn it off on the evening can get up to 12000 lamp hours
2) ventilation. Be sure you have at least 6 inches of open space all the way around the set and that the vents are clear of dust and debris.
3) power. If the power is interrupted when the set is on, there cannot be a proper cool down cycle. The fans will run after you turn the set off to properly cool it down, if the power is lost this cannot happen. If your power is unreliable, buy a small UPS to let the set finish a cool down cycle

Occasionally a lamp will faill before the average lamp time due to being defective. from your purchase date it sounds like you got about average lamp time. Be sure to purchase AN ORIGINAL SONY LAMP as a replacement, becuase the aftermarket lamps are bad news, Be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!
