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?

Re: Lamp Issue?

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)

After installing the XL-2400 Lamp unit. This is the blub and housing. I turned the TV on and after a few moments the tv turned off and on the front of the tv where the power light is it is flashing red.

Please make sure lamp cover is reinstalled securely after replacement of lamp in TV.
If lamp cover is not fixed properly, TV wont power up and red light will start blinking.

I have only had my sony tv for 2 half years and it needs a bloody lamp already whats going on with sony it was one of the leading companys now its gone right down hill i should not have to pay out already...

Hi I am Vortash sorry to say lamps are notoriously thee major cause for 90% of projection tv failiures , and unfortunately you can never guess how long they will last .
Yes sure they say they will run for 3000 hours but not always as factors like posistion and airflow to the set will alter the opperating characteristics of a lamp the hotter they get the shorter they last , thats why there is no guarantee with a bulb once it is out of the packet . The next bulb you buy may last 3 years or it may last 2 or even 1 , so if you want your b8ulbs to last check that your set has a good airflow around it and that the fans are working correctly , that will pro;ong the life of your bulb .. regards Vortash

You may want to have the optical block checked out. Usually when you see spots or blotches of color it's due to a malfunction of the Opt. Block assembly.
