Question about Sony KDF-50E2000 50" HDTV

1 Answer

Getting a message that my lamp is nearing the end of it's life. I have 4 questions: 1. How long do you think I have until it will burn out. 2. Is there only 1 bulb/lamp that will need to be replaced. 3. The on-line places to buy sell either the bulb only or the bulb with it already installed into a factory housing. 4. Is the installation as simple as opening the compartment on the right side of the TV, twisting the handle to open, pulling it out, and replacing the bulb/lamp/housing and putting it back in.

What causes a dirty background?


Copied
1) - Power ON printer while holding both the + & - buttons until "OKIUSER" message appears in LCD.
2) - Press + or - button until "ENGINE DIAG MODE" is displayed.
3) Press "ENTER", displayed will be "DIAGNOSTIC MODE XX.XX.XX S-MODE"
4) Press + or - button until "NV-RAM INITIAL" is displayed.
Half way, dont stop too long it will time out....
5) Press "ENTER" again.
6) Will appear "TABLE 1" message.
7) Press "ENTER" until "EXECUTING RESET" message appear. ...............the "NV-RAM INITIAL" message will BLINK.
Tada....This procedure reset TONER, DRUM, FUSER and BELT...life counts
8) power OFF printer, wait 10 sec, and power ON again..

To access Service Mode in C9300 power ON printer with 0, 1, 6, 7 at same time...you can do some good damage in there!! (I warned ya!)

Resetting consumables for OKI C7300,C7500,C9300 printer I think!

1. Hold buttons 0 + 1 + 6 + 7 on startup.

2. Press button 0 several times until "DIAGNOSTIC MODE xx.xx.xx" shows.

3. Hold buttons 2 + 3 until "ENGINE DIAG LEVEL 4" shows.

4. Press button 1 to scroll to "COUNTER SET".

5. Press button 2 to scroll through menu items (button 6 scrolls backwards)

6. To alter the value of an item, first press button 3 to select the digit to be altered. The selected digit will slowly flash. (Button 3 moves to the right through the digits. Button 7 takes you to the left.)

7. Then press button 2 to increase the value of the selected digit. Press button 6 to decrease the value.

8. When the changes have been made hold buttons 1 + 3 + 5. The screen will flash three times and then an * will appear on the right of the screen. The new value is set.

9. To leave the counter set menus, turn the printer off.
IMPORTANT

Each colour toner counter shows life as percentage used. So a toner showing 30% has used up 30% of its toner. 100% would indicate a near empty toner. This is the reverse of the toner life shown from the "usage menu" when the printer is in normal operation, which shows the toners as a percentage life remaining. You will want toner showing 00%. note:this is oposite of what you see in user mode
Some models exhange these steps

3) HOLD 0 + 4 "ENGINE DIAG LEVEL 2" shows

4) Press 1 to cycle to "fuser unit"

5) 2 to scroll to TONER

REST IS SAME WE WANT TO SET WHAT i GUESS IS AT 100% TO 0%.

I would suspect the lamp is your problem. I wouldn't worry about it until you put the new one in. Then if it doesn't work you can worry, but don't worry needlessly.

I have a sony kds60a3000 projectin tv. when i turn the tv on there is a message that says "your projection lamp is nearing the end of it's life." Should I order a new one now? how long do you think it...


You should order a new one and wait for the other one to **** out first. The automatic message is to make Sony more money.
Shop around on the web for the lamp.
Some places are 2-3X more than others

KDF46E2000 - Change Lamp Warning - Reset

Bulb is most likely OK. Original bulb in Sony TV is Philips, label on bulb usually says Philips. Sony don't make bulbs. Sony Cost is usually 1.5 times other sources. Many shopping cart operations sell condemned, reject or poor quality electronic service items because cost of return and fooling with them is excessive. This is obvious and widespread with convergence ICs and other parts.

Lamp timer needs reset. This is usually an automatic function. TV detects Increased lamp current from previous failed bulb or weak bulb condition and resets automatically. TV must be unplugged for lamp replacement for this to work. Occasionally it must be reset manually, as below:

1. TV must be in standby mode. (Power off).
2. Press the following buttons on the Remote Commander within a
second of each other:
DISPLAY Channel 5 Volume + POWER .1. Access Service Adjustment Mode and select the Service Menu that
contains the Category with the Adjustment Item you want to change.
2. To change the Category, press 2 or 5 on the Remote Commander.
Note: Pressing 2 or 5 only changes the categories within the
Service Menu displayed. To change a Category on one of the other
Service Menus, press the JUMP button until the correct Service
Menu is displayed.
3. To change the Adjustment Item, press 1 or 4 on the Remote
Commander.
4. To change the Data Value, press 3 or 6 on the Remote
Commander.
Note: To go back to the last saved Data Value, press 0 then ENT
on the Remote Commander to read the memory.
5. To save the changes, press MUTING then ENT to write into
memory.
6. To exit service mode, turn the power off by pressing POWER .
Wait 2 minutes before restarting the set to allow the fans to
completely shut down or the Service Menu will appear on the screen.

Sony projection lamp is nearing end of life


Here is a link to a website that sells the replacement lamp for $99 dollars. http://electrified.com/Catalog/Items/?CampaignID=Dealtime&ItemID=36414

There might be a local store in your area that carries replacement lamps but probably will not have yours in stock and would have to order it. After you replace the lamp you will need to reset the lamp timer for your TV using the lamp replacement option on the TV general settings menu.

Mitsubishi HC900 Projector shuts down after 5 minutes.


You have 1 of 2 possible problems.

(1) You need a new lamp.

(2) You have an overheating problem.

Just a quick couple of notes about your projector. It is a DLP projector (not LCD) and as such the machine as no air filters to clean. It does have air intake and air exhaust grilles, but no air filters to clean. This next part comes directly from the owner' manual for your projector:

When the lamp operation time exceeds 2000 hours*1 *2, the projector automatically shuts off and can’t be used until the lamp is replaced and the lamp operation time is reset.

Your machine is designed to give visual warning messages at 1500 hours used, and 1900 hours used. Did you see any visual warning about lamp life over the past few months?

If you were experiencing an overheating problem, a "TEMPERATURE!!" message would flash up on the screen just before the unit shuts down. If there is no warning, you don't have a heat problem.

If you have a replacement lamp available, install it and reset the lmap hours according to your user manual. If you don't have the manual, google it on the web (it available).

Projection lamp nearing end of life replace lamp still coming on


Along with the instructions for the lamp installation, you should have revceived instructions on how to reset the lamp counter. If not, this operation is listed in the owner's manual. If you can not locate that manual, please confirm your model number and I will post the instructions. Since the counter has not been reset, the TV will continue to show the "error" message.
