Question about Sony Televison & Video

1 Answer

Ok here you go, I needed to replace my lamp on my Sony KDF-50E3000, lamp XL-2500. Easy replacement, however now only the picture is HD and any words, at the bottom of the screen are blurry. The blurr comes in and out at times. Originally I took off the whole fron of the screen as I thought this was how to replace the buld as I could not find my manual. Do I need to clean the mirrors inside the TV? Thank you

    So how would one re-align the fresnal? Is there a manual for this? I think I may have bumped it, as I thought the mirror was the bulb.

Only getting HD has nothing to do with a lamp change. I would start by seeing if your antenna settings got changed. For example from cable to over the air antenna. As far as the blurry words on the bottom of the display, I think you didn't get the screen lined back up all the way.

    Thank you, but all the screws went back in, could there be dust at the bottom of the screen? Was thinking of pulling to back off and wiping both the screen and mirrors down? Bad Idea ? --

    When you mention line the screen do you mean the front of the TV? Or could I have bumped the mirror inside and behind the screen? Yes AMATURE

    I am sure the screw holes lined up fine, but every time you take the screen off you run a risk of needing an alignment. The fresnal actually bends the light to fit the screen and does not take much movement at all to get it out of alignment. I did notice you said the blurr comes and goes so I don't think this is the case.This is hinting to me that it is in your broadcast and not the set. Of course I could be wrong. You could try to reset your TV to out of box condition and start from scratch. As timely as that sounds it can prove to be a great trouble shooting asset.

    If you are sure that you might have bumped the mirror out of place a little, you can loosen the screws that hold it in place a touch and make sure it slides in to its track all the way, but as I stated, Your blurr comes and goes. If it was an alignment issue, I would think that the problem would be there constantly.

If the lamps have been ruled out then it MAY be the Ballast that powers the lamp, no easy way short of replacement of that board to know, You might want to contact Sony to see if this is a known issue in their database for this model.

You may want to have the optical block checked out. Usually when you see spots or blotches of color it's due to a malfunction of the Opt. Block assembly.
