Question about Sony KDS-50A2000 50" HDTV

1 Answer

Replaced lamp on Sony KDS50A2000 and now it shuts off and on every couple of minutes. I used the Menu-Settings-Lamp command and no change. The green light stays on and the sound is also still on. The lamp stays off for about 25 seconds then comes back on. It shuts approximately every 2 minutes. Any suggestions?

Hi,
Your tvs lamp is getting over heated. There will be a fan for colling the lamp. if the fan doesn't work properly the lamp will get over heated and the will switch off itself to avoid further damages. Do one thing, Remove the fan from the tv. In the fan there will be a specification sticker. Remove the sicker. Now you can see a hole in the center. its the bearing part of the fan. put one drop of oil in it. You can use any type of lubricating oil. rotate the fan leafs with finger for some time. after that re-stick the spec sticker. insert the fan in the tv. power ON the tv and watch. If the fan is available then try to replace the same. it will not cost a lot. just watch the following video for oiling the fan. its for a PC fan same for all dc fans.
ok

I have a sony kdf-50e-2000 tv ...was cleaning it out earlier for dust..took the lamp out and cleaned around it..put the lamp back in and it came on for maybe 1 min.then shut down and red light is blinking...


Hi,

This is an error code for "lamp cover" and "lamp itself" not properly seat in to the housing. Re-install the lamp, make sure that all of the connectors are properly connected. Ensure that the lamp cover is attached securely or else the same symptoms will be encountered.

Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

I have a Sony VPL-CX61 Multimedia Projector. I just changed the lamp and I cannot get the "please replace lamp" message to go off.


When you use a projector it automatically keeps a timer of how long the lamp has been used for. The message that comes up on screen saying "please replace the lamp" comes up not because it's some how sensing that the lamp is getting old, but because the lamp hours gets to a certain number (usually up around 1500 hours). Because of this when you replace the lamp you need to reset the lamp hours counter, or the projector doesn't even know you've changed it. Every projector does it this way, and they all do it a different way, I googled the model you gave us and found this set of instructions on how to do it, so give it a go.

Reset the lamp counter hours of operation for the projector SONY VPL-CX61
Using the remote commander while the unit is powered up, press "ENTER", "ENTER", "LEFT"
and "ENTER" in sequence. A prompt will appear on the screen asking if you wish to enter the factory mode.
Press the "UP" key on the remote and the unit is now in service mode. This sequence will add two new groups
to the customer setup menu. Press the "MENU" button to view.
Whenever the lamp is replaced, the lamp timer should be reset. With the unit in the "factory" mode, press
"RESET", "LEFT", "RIGHT" and "ENTER" on the remote commander. Verify the lamp hours have been reset to
zero in the service menu.


Hope this worked for you,

KDF46E2000 - Change Lamp Warning - Reset

Bulb is most likely OK. Original bulb in Sony TV is Philips, label on bulb usually says Philips. Sony don't make bulbs. Sony Cost is usually 1.5 times other sources. Many shopping cart operations sell condemned, reject or poor quality electronic service items because cost of return and fooling with them is excessive. This is obvious and widespread with convergence ICs and other parts.

Lamp timer needs reset. This is usually an automatic function. TV detects Increased lamp current from previous failed bulb or weak bulb condition and resets automatically. TV must be unplugged for lamp replacement for this to work. Occasionally it must be reset manually, as below:

1. TV must be in standby mode. (Power off).
2. Press the following buttons on the Remote Commander within a
second of each other:
DISPLAY Channel 5 Volume + POWER .1. Access Service Adjustment Mode and select the Service Menu that
contains the Category with the Adjustment Item you want to change.
2. To change the Category, press 2 or 5 on the Remote Commander.
Note: Pressing 2 or 5 only changes the categories within the
Service Menu displayed. To change a Category on one of the other
Service Menus, press the JUMP button until the correct Service
Menu is displayed.
3. To change the Adjustment Item, press 1 or 4 on the Remote
Commander.
4. To change the Data Value, press 3 or 6 on the Remote
Commander.
Note: To go back to the last saved Data Value, press 0 then ENT
on the Remote Commander to read the memory.
5. To save the changes, press MUTING then ENT to write into
memory.
6. To exit service mode, turn the power off by pressing POWER .
Wait 2 minutes before restarting the set to allow the fans to
completely shut down or the Service Menu will appear on the screen.

I need the procedure for changing my projection lamp for a Sony KDS50A2000


Find your user manual, both the lamp model and the procedure are in there. If you lost the manual, go to sony.com and download the manual. Most Sony LCD projector TV has the lamp on the back, held by one or two screws. It is important to order the right lamp before you opening it up. Do not ever touch the lamp directly as you will damage it.

I have a Sony KDF-50WE655 that shuts the screen off after 3-4 minutes , the front light flashes green for a minute or so and then turns back on for 3-4 minutes. Is it over heating? How easy is it to fix?


Chances are is the Lamp is bad. Call 1800-222-SONY and they can get you one ordered.
It is a very common thing to happen particularly if you have not replaced the lamp before. Average hour life of the lamp is 3000 hrs.
Hope this helps,

My sony kds50a2000 failed lastnight. Bulb only?


There could be something else that caused the lamp to fail but if it has 6 to 8 thousand hours on it that is the expected life and it is not uncommon for a lamp to fail this way.

Sony Wega KDF-55E2000 won't turn on


A 5 blink code is a lamp power supply problem, but I would try a new lamp. I'd say about 90% of the time that fixes the problem.Get an ORIGINAL Sony lamp as the aftermarket replacements are ****. If you replace the lamp and still have the problem, you will need to have the lamp power supply/lamp ballast replaced

Dead sony


The $1200 was for the lcd engine not the lamp. You should change the lamp. The buzz is the power supply trying to light the lamp.
