Ony KDF- E42A10 lamp needs replaced, should I replace the fan also, just got a new lamp 8 months ago picture is dark


Usually the lamp gets brighter when it begins to fail. I would check to see how dirty the inside of the set is. There are beam splitters and lcd filters in that set and if they get dirty then you lose picture quality.

Sony KDF E42A10 picture loses quality.


It sounds Lamp is weak and causing darker picture.
How old is this TV and did you replaced Lamp recently?
If lamp has not been replaced in past 2-3 years then its time for new lamp, XL-2400 available in Sony Accessories Store and lamp replacement procedure is written in user manual.
Thanks.

Picture is dark


Adjust video settings:
  1. Press Wega Gate
  2. Select Settings
  3. Highlight Video
  4. Press + to select
  5. Adjust/increase the brightness.
  6. Press Wega gate to exit.
If picture is still dark, you need to replace the lamp again. Sony recommends that you replace the lamp:
  1. After approximately 8,000 hours of use.
  2. When the screen becomes dark or the color becomes unusual.
  3. When the lamp indicator on the front of the TV flashes.

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.

Ihave a sony KDF-E50A10 and the picture is fading


check the lamp timer in the menu page of the projector.it it is more than 1500 hours, it can be the lamp
alternativly u may also check the optical engine as it may be covered with dusty , hence resulting in dull images

try a lamp first, through best buy their about $150 -250. If that fails it might be the optic block assembly which is about $1,000, and i just recently had replaced, and the picture is as bright and clear as when i got it two and half years ago
