Hi,
You need Hex Key to remove hex screw on left side of lamp then take out lamp.
Sony original lamp is supplied with hex key, please check lamp box.
If you do not have hex key, try small size flat screw driver to remove hex screw as flat screw driver could fit into hex screw.
Following exploded view shows how to remove that screw with hex key.
Hope this info will help you.
Thanks.

I have a Sony KDF-E55A20. I just replaced the bulb, the old bulb was broken. I replaced the bulb but the TV still does not work. There's a series of 3 blinking red light. What does this mean? After I put...


Put lamp cover back on tv as it will push a safety switch inside then tv will turn On.
Lamp cover is first thing that you removed to replace lamp in tv.
Hope this will help you.
Thanks.

How do i replace the lamp bulb in sony tv kdfe42a10


There are several online video tutorials that are available online. If you search some of the websites that seel the lamp, most have a tutorial.

You'll need...

1. a Phillips screwdriver
2. a 7mm (I believe) nut driver
3. Needlenose pliars
4. Gloves to keep acid from your skin getting on the lamp. The company I bought my lamp from provides cotton gloves (www.bulbsolutions.com)

Remove 3 screws from housing (2 on each side, and one that holds front of housing to the back of the housing)
Remove 2 mounting screws in corner of lamp that holds lamp securely to the lens.
Remove nut holding wiring harness to lamp
Remove screw holding wiring harness to lamp

Screen turns off and on Sony KDF E55A20


It is symptom of dying lamp and tv requires new lamp.
Existing lamp in tv has reached to end of its life span and causing that problem. If lamp has not been replaced in last 2-3 years, just put new lamp in tv to get it back in business.
Thanks.

Picture goes out, comes back, sound is fine


I found several instances of this probllen on various forums, and determined that it is the bulb after all. It seemed that a bulb should either work fine or be burnt out, so I thought it might be something else, but so many other customers had this identical problem that I am 99% sure it is the bulb. I found a replacement bulb with housing for about half the price of the Sony Store, so i ordered it. In the meantime, another customer offered a suggestion to try adjusting the Power setting to Power Saving instead of Standard. I tried this last night and the picture worked fine! I will replace the bulb when it arrives and keep the old one on hand in case this happens in the future. Thanks to all of the posters out there!!!
