Question about Sony Projection Televisions

1 Answer

Flashing light - TV shuts down

We replaced the lamp about a week ago, everything was working fine. Now the television runs for maybe 1/2 hour 45 minutes and shut off. No timers are set, but the red light flashes on the front of the television 9 times in a row when the set shuts itself down. Do you have a solution for this?

I will need the model number of your set in order to help you, but different models have different meanings for the error code. Your set is flashing an error code. Please respond to this and I will be able to help you with the problem.

The answers above are correct. It's either the lamp or the color wheel. Testing the lamp is pretty straight forward. Use an Ohm meter to see if the it's filament has continuity. It's unlikely that a good color wheel would fail immediately after changing the lamp. Look to see if some wiring is out of place and rubbing the wheel causing the noise you described. A jammed but otherwise good color wheel would cause the TV to shut down and display an error code.

You need to reset the "Lamp Hours" in your settings. It is a timer that just runs down, and doesn't know if you changed the bulb. It just needs to be reset to 0.

You need to replace your color wheel. This is a very sensitive part and you need to take care when replacing. If you feel comfortable I can walk you through it. If not, I would take it to a authorized service center.
