Question about Samsung HCN4226W 42" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Sony KDF-E50A10 Green picture.

I have a Sony KDF-E50A10. Originally my problem was that I could not turn it on. I would get three flashing green lights, a pause, then three flashing red lights on the power/standby indicator. I unplugged the tv and removed and reinstalled the lamp. After I did that the tv turned on but the picture has a green hue to it. Also, on the bottom right hand side there is a star effect of blue pixels. Could it be that I need a new lamp or would it be something else? Thanks in advance for the help.

    My Sony TV SDF-E50A10 has a flashing red lights which the manual recommend for us to replace the projection lamp. I bought a Sony Projection Lamp for $199.00 and upon replacing the old lamp, it is still flashing. Do you think flashing lights mean another problem other than Lamp. Majual doesn't say anything.. Need your feedback

Sony kdf e50a10 no picture 4 red led flashes


Made around 2005---It should have a rather large fan at the lamp---there is a thermal sensor there that looks somewhat like a temp sending unit in a auto----there is also in the wire harness a thermal fuse but that is good based on your blink code.

I would not alter the design of the fans but make sure they are not that dirty--they will slow down if dirty.

My focus would be on either the sensor for temp for the lamp being bad or the fan there being bad---both are possible.

Check your fans. You have a stuck fan. You may want to call a service center as it is a pain to get to one or two of the fans. Theres 3 or 4 of them.

Sony kdf e50a10 Set works perfect for about 2-3 min, then shuts down, flashing green light 44 times then turns back on.Does this over and over till you turn it off. Tried resetting it several times.


If you have not recently changed the lamp this is the problem. Purchase a lamp and install it yourself it is in the owners manual step by step.
