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.

3 blinks indicates lamp door is not on or has not been reinstalled properly. This also could mean the lamp door switch has failed itself. Try removing the lamp door and putting back on, if that doesnt correct the problem then I recommend having the switch replaced.

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!!

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?

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.

Replaced bulb in a kdf-e42a10 and worked for about 8 hours


3 times red light blinks shows that Lamp Cover is Open. Please put back lamp cover properly.
I would recommend to always replace with Original Sony Lamp and avoid aftermarket or compatible lamps.

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.
