Question about Sony KDS55A2000 55" HDTV

2 Answers

I have a 55in Sony TV model KDS-55A2000. In the last few months I have gone through 4 lamps. They keep blowing out and I also lose sound when this happens. Can anyone tell me what is going on with my tv and if I can fix it myself?

Sounds like you have bad solder joints,some may have hairline cracks in them from overheating and you may just have to have it serviced.You can open it up and look for bad solder spots and remove the solder with solder wick and resolder it with some good solder.most places use led free solder which doesn't seem to with stand the heat.

OK you need a new Ballast . You can solder the bad joints and repair them. Remember to put lead free solder on and rosin to make the solder flow well. Please do not bridge or splash the solder , other wise all that work for nothing.

I have a sony 55"


Hi,
3 times red standby light flashing indicates that lamp cover (first thing that you removed from tv to replace lamp) is not fixed properly on tv, make sure lamp cover is attached correctly with tv to solve this issue.
3 times blinking is not problem of fan or anything else, it is related to lamp cover that engages safety micro switch inside to turn On tv.
Thanks.

60in Sony KDS-60A2020 LCD rear projection picture goes on and off


yes replace the lamp, sony units have certain specs that the lamp must meet to operate correctly. If the Lamp you purchased is made by LTI, these lamps do not last long as they are poorly manufactured. Look at the bulb and see who is the maker if its says LTI then replace with a Phillips brand that meets spec's for sony.

No video no sound red standby light continous blinking once per second


Red Lamp light might be blinking in your TV, that means TV needs new lamp as existing lamp inside TV is broken or dear.
Please replace lamp in your Sony KDS-55A2000 TV and lamp replacement procedure is written in user manual.
Let me know if you need user manual copy.
Thanks.
