Question about Sony KDS-50A2000 50" HDTV

1 Answer

I replaced the lamp after only a 14 months but it will not light up, then I put the old lamp back in and the lamp comes on momentarally but then shuts off and the TV never lights up. Why will the TV not light? I also want to know if SONY will pay for this to be fixed because they have extended my warranty till December of this year.

Lamps last between 5,000-8.000 hrs Keep in mind every hour you play TV ,thats an hour lost on Lamp and its also possiable to receive a defective Lamp even new doesnt mean it works.
Lamp Fan if defetive can also prevent lamp from lighting. This happens to protect lamp from running and getting way to hot and therfore buring lamp up .
Ballast Board that connects to lamp is what turns the lamp on,if the ballast board is defective Lamp will not firer,meaning you either have bad lamp fan or new lamp is defective. Heres another Tip Sony had alot of problems with their Light Engines prices for that part range from $650.00 up to $2,799.00 depending on which light Engine you have? Since your TV is Still under warranty take it in quickly and be sure to ASK about warranty on YOUR Light Engine!!!

Replaced the lamp in my Dell 3200mp projector when the lamp indicator came on. After replacing the lamp indicator is off , but the lamp will not even attempt to light. Anything else I can check?


Hi,
did the old lamp fail? Or did the lamp light just come on?
Firstly I would disconnect the mains and carefully put the old lamp back in. Test the projector. Then put the new one back in and test.
There can be problems with lamps not being seated correctly, and/or the lamp cover not being fully closed.
Post back for more help if required.

My PT52LCX66 randomly "turns off", the green light flashes for about 20-30 seconds, and it comes back on again.


We had the same problem with our PT52LCX16. After reading some comments from others with the same problem, we put the old lamp that we replaced only 3-1/2 months ago back in as a test, and have not had the problem since. Apparently we bought a defective lamp.

The TV keeps shutting off, then shortly after turns back on, then shuts off again... Plugging the cord into a different wall outlet doesn't solve the problem. Please help! Thank you


I'm having the same problem. My TV will play for for awhile and then it just dims down for about 1 to 2 minutes then powers up again. The green light stays on doesn't blink at all, and there is no red light that comes on or blinks like when our lamp went out. We replaced the lamp about 6 months ago and it's been working great until this week.

My WD-52525 started a rubbing noise coming from the back area. I figure it's the light engine. Color was off and it won't restart, has a lamp light now. Lamp is 4 months old. Sound like light engine?


This sounds like your color wheel. this will affect the colors on your screen. Do check your lamp though, at 4 months you still should have a good lamp. Unless you have a bad ballast affecting the lamp as well. If you hear a rapid clicking or an electrical buzzing type noise. "ballast"

Mitsubishi wd-73736 bulbs buzzing noise


The Ballast that ignites the Lamp could cause the Lamp to fail and/or cause a buzzing noise. That being said, the Color Wheel in the Optical Block assembly could also cause a similar symptom. If Mitsubishi would be willing to help with the Lamp cost, I would call a local Mitsubishi repair facility to install it and see if the noise is still there and find out exactly what is causing it. Mitsubishi Customer Service Phone number is 1800-332-2119.
I hope this helps,

Constant flashing green light


I had the same problem. When I checked the lamp (that was only 6 months old) it looked good. I had a tech come out and he put in a new lamp and solved the problem.
Good Luck!

Lamp light flashing tv wont come on


No reset of lamp hour is required. If lamp is original form Hitachi then check Lamp Cover, it might not put back or not seated well.

Tv wont come on


Good Day,

If you use your TV a lot then you need to replace the lamp, but if you only use your TV about 8 hour a day, then you also may need to replace the ballast.

The lamp is really easy to change. You should get at least 5,000 hours on your lamp.

Call RCA customer service and ask for a concession to replace the lamp and ballast. This is a common problem for RCA!

Good luck, God Bless.
