Question about Sony (XL-2400) Projector Lamp for KDF-E42A10, KDF-E50A10

2 Answers

Lamp Issue? I have a 2 yr old KDF-E42A10. Last few days noticed that after the set was on for about 30 min the color would start to distort then the set would go black with some random colors "running" horizontally. Audio would be off too. I would turn off the set and wait. When I turned it back on it was ok, but 30 min later, same thing. This went on about 3-4 times over thalst few days. Last night I turned on the set and had no issues for 3 hours. "Lamp" indicator light is not lit. Could it be the lamp going?

    lamp has burst/exploded inside housing. only had set approximately 14 months or less. lamp indicator never came on at front panel. also, salesman never made me aware of 'lamp replacements' during sales pitch, which may have affected my selection at that time. i am very disappointed and shocked at having to replace such an expensive part with such short life-expectancy. would like to contact manufacturer and seek some type of resolution.

    THE VERTICAL COLORED LINES OF DEAD (CLOD)



    This TV has a fantastic image, and a good sound quality. BUT it always maked some kind of weird clicking sounds from time to time. Until last week it worked just fine, but last Sunday it took over 3 minutes to turn on, and when it did no image can be seen, only vertical colored lines were displayed all over the screen. I have no response from the buttons in front of the TV, and neither the ones in the remote. Only S-video source can be barely seen behind the Colored Lines of Dead (CLOD).



    Sony support page has a statement from year 2006, saying that all the series of TV models KDF-EXXAXX had some software issue that causes a turning on delay, the clicking sounds, etc. You can check yours entering your model and serial number at Sony Support. Mine it’s one of those “blessed” TVs. Thank you very much SONY.



    My local technical service has no idea of what’s happening to my TV. They are checking with Sony Panama, and no response has been received yet.



    I know that I’m not the only one with this problem (aka: The CLOD). I checked recently in www.fixya.com, and we are a few by now, apparently the problem just started to haunt Sony KDF owners.



    STAY AWAY FROM THIS PRODUCT. THE VERTICAL “COLORES LINES OF DEAD” WILL HAUNT YOU SOONER OR LATER

Sorry, Sony is having a lot of problems with the light engine ($$$) on these models. Contact Sony as they are covering them even though they are out of warranty (class action lawsuits)
