Question about Sony (XL-2400) Projector Lamp for KDF-E42A10, KDF-E50A10

1 Answer

When I try to turn on my Sony KDF E50A11E TV, the LEDE blinks about 9 times, then turns green for a second and then blinks again 9 times. Please help; do I need to replace the lamp or is there something wrong with the circuits or fan? Don't want to waste money on a new lamp if that is not the issue!

    Thanks! The blinking is red/green so I guess it's a lamp issue? Any tips on whether its better to replace the whole module (more expensive) or just the lamp bulb?

If lamp has not been replaced in last 2-3 years then its time to replace it.
If tv standby light does not turn into red blinking then it is lamp problem that has reached to end of working hours life and requires replacement because red standby blinking light shows problem with tv hardware but green blinking light shows rest is fine inside tv but just lamp is older/ weak.
Hope these info will help you
Thanks

    Wait, you said blinking is red/green?
    If standby light is blinking green only then its weak lamp issue
    and if standby light blinking red then it its hardware problem in tv and I can provide you more info if you tell me how many times red light blinks after 3 seconds long pause.
    I would recommend to replace complete lamp and buy from nearest Sony Store for good picture in tv.

    Well, I guess intermittently. Dont know how to describe exactly. I just put a video online (30 secs): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JALbQ86eo...

    Could it be both hardware and lamp??

    Yes, that clip helped a lot.
    Red light is blinking 11 times and it is *video processor error*
    You need to get help of tv repairman because it is not user level repair.
    Thanks.

Hi, Our Sony Bravia TV model number KDF E50A11E is not working. There is a red blinking light flashes three times and then goes green and then red blinking again after about 3 seconds. Is this a bulb...


On that particular model I believe there is both a lamp indicator light and then the power indicator light. If it is lamp related the lamp indicator light (LED that looks like a sun in a cup...) would be on.

If the power indicator light is flashing red to green, that is a self diagnostic code, and you will have to contact an authorized Sony repair fascility for them to translate the problem. The error codes are not listed in the user manual, since most are not user serviceable.

Did you replaced its lamp in last 2-3 years?
Thanks.

4 times blink error shows that any FAN is not running in TV as there are 4 fans in this TV.
Please check fan connectors and make sure all are plugged securely.
