Question about Sony KDF-E42A10 42 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

There is a blue aura that is displayed on the screen of the TV even when there is no picture. I have replaced the lamp and lamp housing, but the problem is still there. Is this a problem with the internal projection/mirror system?

    There is also yellow discloring on either side of the screen on the outside of the blue aura (or halo)

I just replaced bulb with new and after a day there is a dark spot on the screen


I have the same TV - I have a dark spot in the upper left hand corner. I have always thought this TV was dark. Be sure to get OME lamp. Cheaper ones are not worth it and can damage your TV more.
dlplampsource,com--Just a note if this ever happens to you. TV would not come on in the AM-Had no picture, but had sound. It was not the lamp, but the safety switch. It's blue and at the bottom of the lamp housing. As soon as I flipped it and replaced the back cover, the TV came on.

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.

How long do I have after the lamp replacement warning comes up before I have to replace the lamp?


You can use the Lamp even if the TV displays the message to replace the lamp. However, the performance of the TV, i.e the picture may become dark, entire screen may display in black after some time. If you can view the videos normally even after displaying the message, you may continue using it.
Thanks for understanding.

Picture loss after picture begins to flash. blue and yellow light


Most likely the lamp is dying. Try replacing the lamp before calling a repair tech. What does the Owners manual say about the blink lights?

My Samsung DLP hln567w tv has NO picture on all


If the Lamp ignites and stays lit, but screen is completely black, not even the on screen display, then it is likely a bad DMD board.

If the lamp ignites and then turns off after a couple seconds then it is likely the color wheel is seized.

If the lamp never fires, but the TV clicks a bunch of times, then it could be a bad Ballast or the Lamp itself.

Samsung 50" DLP - Lamp Light Blinking after bulb replacement


Listen closely. The tv should make a high pitch whine as it turns on. If it does wait and see if it tries this a few times. If yes then check the bulb, I have seen cases where the lamp shoves the power connector back into the set. If the tv starts with a grown or heavy vibration noise, then your color wheel may have broken and needs replaced.

NO PICTURE.


When tv shows dark picture or Lamp LED start flashing at front of tv then you need to replace Lamp.
Now let me know do you get blue screen on all video inputs or just on cable / antenna ?
It would be nice if can paste picture of tv showing problem to understand easily, like I'm pasting your tv picture as reference.

Blue Screen


You have a bad blue picture tube. If you replace it the red and green will be weak and probably go sooner than you think. Everytime I had to replace a tube in a sony projo tv i had to replace all 3 picture tubes at the same time. It's very expensive if you don't have any type of warranty coverage.

Uh Oh! blue screen of death. Your light engine has warped a little from overheating and is distorting the picture.

My suggestion to you is to get on the phone with Sony and start complaining, then keep complaining until they agree to pay for it. Even if it is out of warranty.
You may have to get the problem diagnosed by a pro before they agree to pay for it though.
Hope ya fix it!
