I've owned this TV since 2004. Yesterday, the display went out suggesting the lamp might need to be replaced. But it also makes a winding type noise. Any thoughts? Thanks, tom

TV will not power on


Inspect the lamp again. When you replace it, make sure you DO NOT TOUCH the glass. Make sure all doors and covers are securely in place before you turn it on.
As a rule, expensive lamps have a very short life.

My Sony Trinatron has suddenly displayed a dark screen on all channels. You can see the picture but looks like it's nightime. I've tried ajusting the brightness but no result.


Hello,

does the TV bring out sound even as the screen display is dark?

Problem should be from the TV lamp/bulb. When a TV bulb/lamp is dying, it makes the pictire on the screen become dark and very hard to see.

Have the lamp replaced and hopefully, your screen should be perfect as before.

Let me know if you need directions in replacing the lamp, even though it is very simple replace.

Yours sincerely.

Changed lamp and TV won't turn on, power light flashes 3 times


Hi,
Red light blinking 3 times shows problem with lamp cover.
Lamp cover is not fixed securely in your tv after lamp replacement. Lamp cover is first thing that was removed to replace lamp, check lamp cover and make sure its back in place properly.
Thanks.

I have sound, but no picture


I am finding a lot of people's lamps are going out. This maybe your problem too judging from what I have read above.

There are replacement lamps. They used to be pretty expensive but they are somewhat reasonable now. Below is a site you can order a new lamp this should fix the problem.

But before you order make sure that all the cables in the back of the television are in the right order. Red and White are audio while Yellow is video. A lot of people are unable to distinguish the yellow from the white.

If you have the other cables such as the blue and the black make sure the blue is with blue and black is with black. They are hard to see sometimes in a poorly lit area like behind a TV.

If everything is hooked up correctly.

Your next bet is the lamp replacement. Replacing the lamp its quite easy to do. Just remember to reset the TV lamp timer. Consulting your owners manual should help.

Here is the site for lamp replacements. You also can do your own search for lamp replacement.

LCD Lamp went out, how can I change it on my own?


Yes you can replace it on your own. On some models there is an access door to replace the lamp. On others you will have to take the back off to gain access to the lamp housing. There are many sites that sell the lamp and or housing you need. Just be carefull if you go with just the lamp to not touch the bulb on replecement as it will affect its display.

I had this same problem over the summer, I had my TV for two years before it went out. You need a new lamp. The lamp is not hard to replace on your own. However, you MUST make sure that you do not touch the lamp (the bulb part) in anyway. If you do your new lamp will not last as long. You can order the lamps online. They range anywhere from 150-300 dollars online. However, I found a TV repair company in my city that only charged me 100.00 for the lamp and they told me If I took out the box that holds the lamp they would replace the lamp for me. They also gave me a 1 yr warrantee on the lamp. All I had to do was un-screw the box from the back of the TV take the box to the TV repair company and I placed the box back into my TV. My TV works. While going through this process, I learned that these lamps go out all the time, the more you watch the TV the more often you'll replace the lamp. I was told from the repair company it could be as often as every year. The Lamp does have MURCURY in it so if you replace the lamp on your own be careful and have it recycled. If you live in SLC UT the repair company I went though was Village TV Sales and Service.

Identifying the correct lamp code
Before placing an order online, you must identify which lamp code you need. The lamp code is located usually on the left side of the TV
