Question about Sony KDF-E42A10 42 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Lately when turning the tv on, light flashes on front of unit for over a minute, then only sound comes on...no picture. I turn off the unit and wait awhile before trying again. This sometimes goes on for 24-48 hrs, then all of a sudden, once in awhile, the picture will come on too. Is this just a matter of replacing the lamp or is something else goin on? Thank you...Ken Sony Grand Wega Rear Projection...Model# KDF-E42A10

That definately sounds like a lamp going bad. I've seen a lot of these in our shop doing same thing and a new lamp fixes about everyone of them. I would definately start there. Just remember to fasten the lamp door back properly when you have finished changing the lamp. There is a safety switch that won't allow the set to come on if the door is not put back on properly. A lot of people forget to do this.

Flashing green light


Did you try this yet

SYSTEM RESET
If the TV will not respond to either the remote control
or the front panel controls and/or will not power Off,
press the SYSTEM RESET button with a pointed item
like the end point of a paperclip. The TV will turn Off
and the TIMER light will flash quickly for about one
minute. When the TIMER light stops flashing, you may
turn on the TV again. Changes you made the last time
the TV was On before you used the SYSTEM RESET
button may be lost, however, the changes you made
previously are not lost.
POWER/TIMER Indicator
The green light is a multi-function indicator. This light
will flash rapidly for about one minute each time the TV
is plugged into the wall electrical outlet, when power
is restored after a power failure, or using the SYSTEM
RESET button. Do not attempt to turn on the TV again
during this period. Wait for the flashing to stop and
the light to turn off, before attempting to turn the TV
on. While the TV is powered on, the light illuminates
steadily. If the TV has been programmed to turn on
automatically using the Timer feature,

MY problem with Sony KP-53S35 53 in. Rear Projection Television. When the TV powers on, the red light blinks until the picture comes on, then the red light blinks go off. I had to wait more than 5 minutes...


the number of flashes of the red indicator lamp points to the possible cause of the delay of the raster or picture, but usually it's an indicator of an emission unbalance between crt(picture tube) guns. the picture will take longer to show up as the emission on either of the picture tubes goes down.

Mitsubishi 57" HDTV - has sound and timer light flashes


I had the same problem and my local repair guy soldered a defective sensor so that it goes around that problem. I also had to buy a new bulb. Now my picture is "cloudy" and the repairman has no idea why. I am waiting for them to call back on it.

Sony FWD50PX2/S 50 in. Plasma Television power problem


It does sound like a power supply problem but that can be misleading because a problem somewhere else in the TV can be "holding down" the power supply. This can usually be determined by using some isolation techniques.

TV Picture Goes Black


I had the same exact problem.
I removed the bulb and cleaned it. There is a small screen at the top of the bulb and it was covered with dust. Once it was cleaned I replaced the bulb and it solved the problem.
Thanks to those who posted the solutions
