How do I reset the self check mode on a KDF-E50A10

I have a yellow tint or halo on my TV. I ask Fixya for help and the answer was to replace the Optical block and call Sony to see if it's under warranty. I called sony and they said it was covered under warranty due to the extensive problem with this model Kdfe50a10 and they will fix the problem with no charge to me. I changed the bulb about a year ago and never new about the self check mode. I put my sony in the self check mode and it is showing that there is a lamp error. How do I reset the lamp error in the self check mode to insure that I don't just need to replace the lamp and not the optical block.

KDF-E50A10 - hard to see details during dark scenes and a dark bluish tint can be seen in background. When tv is turned off the screen goes black but has bluish tint toward the edges before it all goes...


Hate to tell you this but it sounds like your picture module is going bad. The bluish tint tells me it is leaking to the outside. Some problems with the LCD picture module can be fixed but I never had to fix one. Might check out some videos on repairing LCD picture tubes on YouTube.

How do I find out which lamp is blown? My screen has a lot of yellow throughout it. It is a Sony KDF-E50A10.


It is dlp tv that has one lamp as back light source. Yellowish tint is problem of Optical Block Unit (commonly known as light engine) that will be replaced to fix it.
Local tech will help you in optical block unit replacement because it is purely job of qualified tech.
Thanks.

Sony KDF 3LCD Screen has a horizontal orange tint stripe at top


This problem is caused by a defect in the optical block. It causes about 1 - 1.5" tint usually green, orange, or yellow at the top of the screen. The part is very expensive, retails around $600-800 usually. You cannot fix it without replacing the optical block. They did have an extended warranties for this particular issue because of a class action lawsuit on certain models. Call Sony to see if your model is one of the ones they extended the warranties.

Sony KDF-E50A10 Shuts off and on every 1- 2 mintues


From what it seems in your question... the problem has already went away... However, I actually know about this. There is a fuse inside the tv near the power button called B-3a... If you replace that fuse it should help fix permanently

Some of these models have this problem from production.
I would recommend to contact SONY and tell them the problem they may be able to fix your TV at no cost, since some of their Light engines have a recall but I'm not sure if your model number is one of those.

If you want to fix the TV yourself you need to replace the light engine and that requires advanced skills for this product

hope that was helpful
thank you
