Sony KDF50655

Occasionaly my Sony will not turn on, the lamp light blinks like the bulb has failed. But it still works, I moved it so we could use a different tv until this one is repaired, and it started working. I moved it back, same thing, a couple days later it malfunctioned again. Pulled the bulb , inspected, reinstalled, started working, Loose connection on a drive board? Bulb trying to fail? Gremlins?

Most likely this is a bad lamp. Very common when the sony lamp is failing to get int. power off.

You tv used lamp XL-2400 or also known as F93087500. It is very common for this bulb to fail and have the exact symptom you are experiencing. I cant count how many times I have seen it.. Replace the lamp with either the exact Sony or an OEM and you will be back in business..
Good Luck!!

No picture


More info please. I assume you have a new Sony lamp installed? Have you closed the outer door for the lamp? When the set fails to turn on, does the front panel light blink a certain number of times? If so, how many blinks?

Sony Wega KF-42E200A Projection Bulb


New bulb is just fine.
3 blink shows that lamp cover after replacement of bulb in TV is not fixed properly or not seated well in its position.
Put new bulb and carefully place back lamp cover in its position because lamp cover will press tinny safety switch inside that will send signal to system control of TV that lamp is installed properly.
Turn On TV and get vivid picture of Sony.
Thanks.

I have an LG DLP. that turns off after 15 -30 seconds


If the second light is blinking to orange or red, that is usually the lamp indicator light on an LG DLP tv. That indicates your bulb needs replaced, or something surrounding the bulb has failed (like the cooling fan for the bulb for example) IF you have a spare bulb handy, I'd replace the bulb, keeping in mind if you touch any part of a new bulb with your bare hands, you just cut the life of the bulb by more then half.

My sony kds50a2000 failed lastnight. Bulb only?


There could be something else that caused the lamp to fail but if it has 6 to 8 thousand hours on it that is the expected life and it is not uncommon for a lamp to fail this way.

Sony WEGA Large Projection TV


I sounds like the projection bulb has failed. I think there is a red lamp on the front that lights up when the bulb fails however.
This sounds very similiar to what mine did when the bulb failed about 2 months ago. Once the buld fails the TV will shut itself down and keep doing that until the bulb is replaced.
