HDTV mode Okay I replaced the lamp block 2100U as you instructed me but when you change the TV to HDTV mode which is Video 5 screen the screen is blue and red and the images move across the screen. Unviewable..Regular TV and everything else works fine, DVD etc screen which is Video 4. All I did was replace the bulb as you described for me to do. Very strange. HD is not working.

AFTER REPLACING THE LAMP, I HAD TO PUT THE COVER ON AND NOW THE SCREEN HAS TINY BLUE DOTS AND THE POWER LIGHT STAYS GREEN. THE LAMP LIGH IS NOW ON AND RED


The blue dots are due to a failing optic block. The lamp is only making them show up more obviously. The TV is probably failing as the blue dots will get larger and eventually take over the screen.

I have a sony wega 46 inch tv model number: KDF42WE655 the screen went black and the red light came on where it says "lamp" on front of tv Does this mean I just need to replace the lamp?


If your tv is around 2-4 yrs or used 6000-8000 hrs,never replaced the lamp before it could be time to replace it.The other most common failure is the board that powers the lamp,which is called the ballast.When its bad it will make a clicking sound or like wanting to turn on.But pretty much it does sound like the lamp.your part # will be xl-2100 and you can find it here: http://www.discount-merchant.com/Sony-XL-2100U-TV-Lamp-p/sony_xl-2100u_replacement_lamp.htm and here's the instructions to replace it: http://guides.fixyourdlp.com/sony/XL-2100U.php Have a blessed one!

My tv turns on and off. It will stay on for about 3 min and then turn off. What is the problem??


Hi,
If its Sony KDF-50WE655 TV then its weak lamp symptoms like TV turns off and on automatically and work for 3 minutes as you mentioned.
How old is this TV and did you replaced lamp recently?
Replace its lamp that is weak in result and causing TV off and on itself.
Lamp replacement procedure is written in user manual, very easy, click Sony Support to download copy, if required.
Please buy Sony original lamp for TV safety that is available in Sony Accessories Store under following part number for $200
A1606034B... LAMP BLOCK XL-2100U
If model number is different, let me know.
Thanks.

Red lamp light stays light


I doubt that it is the optical assy. it sounds more like a chassis problem either on the DM or the FMT board.

check out www.tv-techs.com
if it is a chassis problem it will cost about $250.00 plus shipping one way to fix the chassis
