Question about Sony KDF46E2000 46" Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Sony kdf-E2000 The tv will turn on and then shut off for 30 sec. and then back on for 1 min. and off. It finally shut off and the red lamp light came on. It has now went to just blinking green when turned on now. Any thoughts? I heard I should replace the bulb, but I have heard of other issues when you do that and spending $200 for something that may not work really sucks. Is it worth fixing or look for a new tv? email me at shakenbake25@hotmail.com thanks for any help

I've seen this exact problem before and it was the lamp. Take it out (if in doubt) and look for glass fragments in the reflector. Even if the glass capsule isn't shattered, the bulb can still be bad. This is the easiest failure to visually confirm. A lamp should last between 2 to 3 years depending on the amount of daily use the TV gets. Should a bulb last less than two years the lamp cooling fans may need cleaned. Homes with a dust problem, smokers, pets and open windows are more prone to dust accumulation inside the TV. If you take the lamp out and see dust bunnies inside the lamp housing, the set should be cleaned and fans checked for dust deposits. Every six months or sooner vacuum the rear cover panel and area behind the entertainment furniture.

How do i fix my tv


I had the exact same problem. Thought I could fix it by replacing the thermal fuse . . . no luck there. Problem continued. After tons ( I do mean tons) of research, I found the problem to be a temperature sensor. Makes total sense ! ! ! The tv is trying to come on, but the temperature sensor is bad, telling the tv that it is too hot to operate, so it turns itself off - only to try & come back on 30 secs or so later. Hard to fix unless you know your way around tv circuits. Took me bout 3 hrs total.

Strange situation, have you tried unplugging it for a few minutes and letting the TV cool. I have a older 2006 Sony SXRD rear projection and it takes forever to turn back on if you shut it off then turn it back on. Check this link and maybe its giving you a blinking code. Try counting the number of blinks. Hope this helps.

Hi,
TV will show Lamp Light warning if lamp got broken or dead.
Symptoms of TV shows lamp is weak and will be replaced. Weak lamp consume more current than allowed ratings and causing activation of protection circuit that shuts off TV and TV turns on again itself, that is why no blinking red light.
Please replace lamp in your Sony KDF-E55A20 TV, lamp replacement procedure is easy and written in user manual, click Sony Support to download user manual copy, if required.
Always buy Sony original lamp for TV safety, Sony original lamp is available in Sony Accessories Store for $200 with following part number..
A1085447A... LAMP BLOCK ASSY XL-2200U
Hope this info will help you.
Thanks.

Red Light Flashes twice KDF-E50A10


Are you putting the lamp cover back in place before trying to turn the set on? The 2 blink error is a temperature error you might want to check the thermal sensor, is your lamp door warped?

Problem for Sony Grand WEGA KDF-55WF655. Hello,


5 times Red LED blinks means Lamp Driver Error. (KDF-55WF655)
2 possible reasons, either Lamp is gone or Ballast Supply got bad.
Replace lamp first, in most cases it solved the problem.
How old is this TV and did you replaced lamp recently?
Thanks.

My sony tv will not stay on


If you replace the lamp and need to reset the Lamp Timer Reset procedure is: With The Set In Standby Press Display, 5, Vol Up, Power on the remote control Press Jump 3. Or, To Display The Lamp Time Press 2 Nine Times. To Reset Press 3, Mute, Enter. One of these should work on your model. Make sure you replace the bulb first. There is a possibility that the ballast could be damaged by a defective bulb as well.
