SOURCE: fuzzy picture

You can't make SD look like HD thats why HD came out, the best you can do is adjust the picture controls to get the optium picture

Depending how long you have owned it and if a Lamp was ever replaced, it probably needs to be replaced. You can check with SONY at
1800-222-SONY and see if they could sell and send you one.
Hope this helps,

SOURCE: My sony bravia kdf-e50a12u turns itself off

Hello Abasama:
Ok so you have gotten other assistance and no luck huh..
First where did u purchase the lamp, Look at it and make sure its a phillips type lamp, Most sites will sell you a lamp made by LTI these lamps are of poor quailty and proformance. IF the green lamp light is flashing along with the red light, The green is in most cases the lamp light error indicator, the red one next to it is the Temperture indicator. first your need to determine how may flashes the light are indicating, You could have a Bad thermistor which is located on the lamp housing itself, its use to report the lamp temp back to the main signal board. But this error code usually gives 6 flashes and 5second intervals, and repeats ifself. I have an Ebook I wrote for these types of error codes which might help you. So this is what i want u to do.

1. First turn off television
2. In sequence using your orginal sony remote that came with the set, press DISPLAY KEY, 5 KEY, VOL UP THEN PRESS THE POWER BUTTON, you must press all 4 buttons within 3secs or it will not work. the set should come on with a dianostic mode menu, with options like Fans, lamp, lamp hours, lamp door etc.. some menus are different but all sony televisions uses these code to access the diagnostic screen. Next to the options are recorded error numbers the number of times a perticular error has occured. Example (Lamp Driver----------4, or Lamp door-----------1. this indicated that the lamp door has been removed once.
or Lamp Driver has either failed 4 times or the unit tried to light the lamp 4 times.. Just remember that the number to the right represents the number of times and error has occured for that perticular function. This simple menu should lead u in the right direction for solving your problem. One note i forgot to mention, the lamp driver error also could mean the lamp itself is bad and not the driver(Ballast). Also when you have solved your problem go back to the diag menu and hit the 8 key on your remote to reset all error options back to zero. to get out of the menu just turn off power with remote, you can do this first after you see what error is being reported the go back and see what it records to futher help you troubleshoot your set

Hope this helps, I sell the Ebook for 19.95 which shows you this procedure and how to replace your color wheel and so on..
you can email me at delhielectronics@live.com


Good luck..

SOURCE: Sony bravia KDF-E50A12U rear projecion tv wont turn on

Hi it sounds like it could be an issue with board that powers the lamp ,it's called the ballast.When you put a new lamp in the ballast has to provide more power ,when it starts to go weak it will not light up.Sometimes you can put your old lamp in and will work fine.Try partstore.com they might have it right there.Hvae a blessed one!

I have a sony kdf-e50a12u tv and the picture is dark. i have tried to adjust the settings but its still dark what could the problem be


Hello hmt86,

Welcome and thank you for using FixYa!

This is the backlight bulbs or the inverter board that powers them. Both will need tested, hopefully only the inverter board will need replaced.


Have a great evening!

Our Sony Bravia tv picture keeps going light dark light dark. What is causing this problem? It is very annoying when it goes dark because you can't see the picture. Please help.


I have Sony KDL-32XBR9 and I have noticed a similar problem. When the picture is showing mostly black, for example during the ending credits of a movie, the TV will further darken the display. Once the picture lightens back up, the TV will adjust the brightness of the display back to normal. I just called Sony customer support and they indicated it was a firmware problem and they will be sending a USB device in the mail to update the firmware. Hope this helps.

Tired with this sony tv


Sony doesn't want anyone to see a poor picture on a Sony tv so they have a circuit that blanks the video if there is a weak picture or any other problem concerning picture quality. My Sony factory Instructor told me this many many years ago. I'm feeling old...but anyway you need a technician. Sorry.
