Question about Sony KDF42E2000 42" HDTV

1 Answer

My Sony KDF42e2000 goes on and off every 30 seconds. The picture looks good when it's on. Does this mean I need a new lamp? There are no "code" flashing. The power light is solid green when the screen is on and then continues to blink green until 30 seconds later when the tv comes back on. Please help.

Picture is good but it stays on for about 30 seconds then goes off for about 30 seconds or so ,the lamp is coming on then going off ,what is the problem, I have replaced the lamp one time before.


Pull the lamp out and have a look at it. If you don't know what you are looking for in regards to damage, have a look at my Tips & Tricks. I have a tutorial on projection lamps. It will show you where to look when inspecting a lamp. I hope this was helpful, best wishes.

The picture goes off, the power/standby light


Sony KDF-60XS955 picture goes and power/standby light light flashes


Hi,

Most likely you have bulb failure. First step in troubleshooting is "Change the Lamp or Bulb". Lightning, power line bumps and collisions with vacuum cleaners can all shorten lamp life. Rough handling in shipment can also happen without your knowledge.

+90% of all Sony LCD Rear Projector "No Picture or Intermittent Picture" faults are related to bulb failure.

If new lamp does not improve the situation, then hands-on troubleshooting by someone that has parts and knows how the unit works is the only practical remedy.

No Picture/Sound


can you go to the error menu?
im assuming it's the lamp however the error menu will tell me more
If the standby light blinks five times repeatedly, that's indication of a "Lamp driver error". The probable cause listed is, "lamp driver faulty". Its also possible that the internal antenna used to detect the presence of high voltage has become mis-positioned. The lamp driver provides the high voltage. If no high voltage is detected, it is assumed that the lamp driver is faulty.
Otherwise, it is assumed that the lamp is bad and the LAMP LED lights
the part number for the lamp is XL2000U. Its available for $200 at http://servicesales.sel.sony.com/ecom/accessories/web/productSearch.do. Use the Part or Accessory Number to locate the part.
