Re: lamp proble

The lamp assembly is different, but the bulb is the same.

Projection TV makers charge an arm and a leg for their replacement lamps. They make it easy to do but as a result the custom lamp assy is expensive. The trick is to just buy the bulb for your model TV from any number of us aftermarket sources at a fraction of the lamp price and install it in the old lamp yourself. really easy.
Hope ya fix it! Email me at and we'll take care of you.

It is symptom of weak lamp that has been reached to end of its working hours life, replacement of lamp will solve your tv problem.
Rest of your tv is just fine including lamp driver circuit board, buy Sony original lamp and install in tv.
Lamp replacement procedure is written in user manual of tv.

Having trouble with the full picture


If your television is having an image with funny looks, either the images are looking shorter or fatter or the images are in halves, then you need to understand that the lamp is faulty and need to be replaced.

To replace the lamp, you need to unplug the television for a while, then you unscrew the screws that are behind the television to remove the back cover of the television, then you unscrew the metallic sheet that covers the panels, then you lift them up also you lift the panel. you will have direct access to the lamp, then assess it to see if it is looking bad, so you replace the lamp and the television will be in good condition once again.

Take care and good luck

At start up, distorted / dble vision fuzzy. Screen will go black with sound. Turn off & on to get very poor distorted picture. After 15 - 20 minutes clears up.


The reason your television is having distorted vision and screen going black with sound is because there is a problem inside the unit. This problem could be caused by either a bad lamp or a faulty t-com board.

My best bet is the lamp, because it is when the lamp start developing any fault it begins the distorted screen thing and coming up black.

What you hsve to do is to get a replacement lamp, open up the television and replace the lamp with a new one, after doing that your television will be in good condition once again.

Take care and good luck

I have a Samsung HLT6176SX/XAA. Can anyone tell me what a blinking green and blinking red light mean? Sounds like it is trying to power on but no picture comes up.

Hello. I had the same problem your having. You need to replace the lamp. I bought a replacement lamp on ebay for $99.00 (Lamp code: BP96-01795A (P132W). They don't last long though. After 4 months I have hundreds of white spots on my screen.

Changed the lamp power won't come on

I think you might be having a different issue, which seems to be the power supply board.

Lamp Replacement Problems for Hitachi 50V500A

I'll tell you what I tran into and how it got resolved...
I experienced the same problem , with the blinking light...
Purchased a replacement lamp..
It didn't work(After market Universal supposably)..
Well..Come to find out.The Replacement lamp's housing looks similar, but the connecters that come out the back of the housing weren't quite long enough to trigger the microbe that activates the lamp in the Television.
Luckily I had the original lamp and it's housing that came with the television..
Took the bulb out of the new replacement lamp
Placed it in the original housing , and BINGO..It worked and is still working...

No picture

Assuming that the replacement lamp is good, you could be looking at a bad ballast (lamp power supply) or the switch on the lamp door itself could be causing the issue. The light engine also could cause an issue like that. I would have a technician look at it as this is beyond consumer repair.
