    Tv clicks butb wont turn on


    If Your television clicks and the bulb wont turn on, then it means the lamp of the television is bad and need to be replaced. The clicking sound is caused by the power reaching the unit but being unable to be used up by the television. You need to replace the lamp to be able to use Your television. To replace the lamp, You will be needing these instruments, a cup, screw driver, replacement bulb and a hand glove. Then You follow the steps below:
    1. Power off the television,
    2. Unplug it from the power outlet and allow the television rest for about 6 hours so the high voltage on it will dissipate as television is well known to store high current after being plugged from a power outlet,
    3. Then You Wear Your hand glove to avoid some sort of shock,
    4. Then You unscrew the lamps compartment and put the screws into the cup in order for You not to misplace them,
    5. Then you turn off the lamps switch that is by the side of the lamp,
    6. Unscrew the screw that is holding the lamp to place,
    7. Carefully pull out the lamp from its casing and replace it with a new one,
    8. Reverse the whole process to reassemble the television back together and remember to turn on the lamps switch,
    9. Plug Your television and power it on.
    Hope this was helpful. Thank You for using FixYa!!!

    1. Turn the tv off and unplug it. 2. carefully access the back of the tv. 3. when facing the back of the tv on the lower left hand side there is a cover held on by two phillips screws remove this cover. 4. After cover is removed you can see the lamp which is also held in by two phillips screws, these screws only loosen and do not completely remove from the lamp. 5. after loosening the screws there is a handle in the center of the lamp, take the lamp by the handle and remove it from the tv. 6. reverse this process to install lamp.

    Need to reset lamp hours for KDF-E55A20

    This model does not require lamp timer reset, put new lamp securely and power up TV for picture.

    Replaced lamp and new wires, then changed back to old wires still nothing.

    Once you replaced the lamp did you reset the hours under the menu? If you do not do that some times the set believes it's in warning mode and prevents a potential implosion of the lamp which creates issues such as the set not turning on, staying on that long, or the lamp light still flashes.

    Let me know how that works out for you.

    Also, what "old wires" are you referring to?
