The correct way to reset the lamp timer on that unit is to hold the menu key on the remote and push the enter key on the front of the TV at the same time. Hold them (it's about 9 or 10 seconds) and then a screen comes up asking if you would like to reset the lamp timer. That will reset the time but if your problem is a dark picture that's probably not going to fix that.

Screen keeps going black


It is possible but the only way to know is to try that.

Lamps have about a 2000 hour life span which works out to about 2 years for the average user.

Usually in this model just before the lamp fails the picture either comes on somewhat darker than usual or gets dark just before the picture goes out.

The set will detect lamp is not bright enough etc and blank the screen.

The lamp light (I have seen this) sometimes will not come on even if the lamp has a total failure----no picture at all.

You might also check with a local shop or someone with the same model so you can swap lamps to see what the problem is.

Let me know what happens.

I have a sony kds-r50xbr1 when turn-ed on the stand by light flashes for about a min the goes solid and picture comes on but very dark. replaced lamp . there is no sound from any input and the controls...


Sir try to reset the lamp timer. you should press the "display" button on the remote then "5" then the "volume up key" and power "on" you should do this while the tv is in standby mode. Then press "Jump" 3 times to enter the DE service menu. Your tv will display the total lamp hours. Reset the lamp time by pressing channel 3, then mute, then enter. this will make your lamp hour timer to zero. Good day and best regards.

Techman007 is correct here. Lamps have "lifetimes" of a certain number of hours. The lamp indicator is there to let you know that the lamp is likely to fail soon as it has reached its expected lifetime. That does not mean that there aren't lamps that will fail sooner. In your case, the lamp is not producing the amount of light required for a good picture. This is normal for lamps as they age. The light output for all lamps decreases with use. Normally this does not occur in such drastic ways however.

Since you are getting light from the lamp, the ballast is working as expected. The ballast is similar in function to the ballast for a flourescent light, it either works or doesn't.

One other thing that can be checked is the fan area and any glass surfaces for dust and dirt. Again this will effect hte overall light output, but not in such a drastic way. When you next change the lamp, carefully clen any glass surfaces as well as the fan area. Please note that any access to the lamp area should be done after the lamp has had time to cool. These lamps are burn hazards.

Dark picture on lg dlp tv


Did you use a generic replacement? Many TVs have a dark picture after replacing the original lamp with a generic. The other issue I've encountered are TVs that have been exposed to cigarette smoke will develop a dark, discolored picture over a relatively short time.
