Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-46V3000 Television

1 Answer

My tv is switching itself off. it had been doing this for a while then we replaced the bulb as instructed by sony but it is still doing it. the on off button is flashing red at 1 second intervals, 5 times then a 2 second gap then repeats. i have to turn it off for a length of time, then it will work again for a few more hours, longer if i have all the doors and windows open. i freeze but the tv stays on. this is not an acceptible compromise :(

BROKEN actuator switch in bulb replacement door. I have a KDS50A2000 DLP tv. When I replaced the bulb, the tiny actuator switch fell off and I don't know how to put it back on. Am I able to put it...


It is really there so the set cannot be operated with the door open--Sony has lots of problems with the door actually melting and until recently were fixing it for free.

Heard a pop , bulb blew out , replaced bulb , it worked for two days , now red light blinks three times pauses then three times and so on , tv won't turn off light won't turn off unless I unplug...


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.

Sony 50 inch KDF E50A12U switched itself off!


Does the on/off light flash green and red or just green. Is the light to the left of the on/off light on (this means bulb has definately blown)

Probable problem is that your lamp has blown. This can replaced quite easily, but costs about £100. Search google for xl-2400, there is also a video on youtube showing how to replace bulb.

The manual is found at http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-documents.pl?mdl=KF50WE620&LOC=3 and it includes the instructions to replace the bulb.

Very easy to do. Good source is Ebay.

Note - you do not need the entire housing, just the lamp itself which is cheaper. I just purchased a lamp on ebay at arounf $160 including prompt shipment.

Is your TV still under warranty? If it is, then you should send it back and let them fix it. If you do it yourself, you might void the warranty.
