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.

The optics block has failed and it will have to be replaced. Contact Sony for an auth. service center in your area as the optics block in this unit has a 2 year mnfg. warranty.

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.

Hi, Our Sony Bravia TV model number KDF E50A11E is not working. There is a red blinking light flashes three times and then goes green and then red blinking again after about 3 seconds. Is this a bulb...


On that particular model I believe there is both a lamp indicator light and then the power indicator light. If it is lamp related the lamp indicator light (LED that looks like a sun in a cup...) would be on.

If the power indicator light is flashing red to green, that is a self diagnostic code, and you will have to contact an authorized Sony repair fascility for them to translate the problem. The error codes are not listed in the user manual, since most are not user serviceable.
