Question about Sony KDF-E42A10 42 in. LCD Television

Red and Green Lines in TV

I own a sony 42" LCD projector TV KDF-E42A10. I purchased it new 18 months ago. I've been having a problem with a green faded line on the bottom of the screen and a red faded line on the top of the screen. They are always there and getting worse. I have taken the bulb housing out a couple times to make sure its clean and dust free. I know that the bulbs in these tvs need to be replaced over time, so I recently puchased a new bulb and installed it. It didn't change a thing. My brother also has the same tv and I tried both bulbs in his. They work fine and no lines. I'm lost what should I do?
Thanks, Denny

    I have a Sony KDF-E42A10 and my problem is a blue line along the bottom. My t.v. is just over 2 years old. I was told to the price to fix it would be 1000.oo That is outragous considering how many of these tvs have this problem.

My kdf-e42a10 tv won't come on flashes green 7 times then flashes red 3 times.


The 3 blinks is lamp door not closed, what it really means is the door may be warped from the heat of the lamp===the door has a plastic peg on the back that when the door is in place engages a lever just behind the door. If the door is even a little bowed=three blinks.

Engage the lever with something not metal and see if set comes on, if it does replace the door.
