Question about Sony KDF42E2000 42" HDTV

1 Answer

I have a Sony TV - KDF-42E2000 and the lamp went out. Replacing the lamp looks to cost around $80 but replacing the lamp with all the housing for it is around $250. Do I really need to replace the housing? Are there issues that I'm going to run into when just replacing the lamp? Anyone have steps to do this?

I have a sony KDF-42E2000 and our lamp went out a yr after we purchased it. I found the lamp with out the housing on eBay and there was a video on how to take the old lamp out of the housing and replacing it with the new lamp. Now I am a female with NO experience with doing that type of thing, but I was able to do it with ease. So you can swap just the bulb. Also we just had to replace the lamp again and this time on eBay there was the lamp with the housing for 91.00. Easy as pie... But now the problem is that there is a red band across the top of the screen. Just got off the phone with Sony and they said that to fix it, it was going to be around 1K but they will let me choose between 2 different TV's at a reduced price. Apparently there has been a lot of issues with the TV's to the point where this is what the specify in the email: In consideration for Sony making and you accepting this offer, you agree to release and hold harmless Sony Electronics Inc., and its affiliates, officers and directors from any and all claims for damages, loss, cost, expense or liability both known and unknown, which you may have incurred in connection with your television.
So no matter what you decide as far as lamp vs lamp and housing, be aware you might end up contacting sony at 800-200-SONY to get an offer of a discounted tv.... Good luck!

Check your manual to see how to reset the lamp timer. When it reaches the limit it will not turn on till it's reset. With most units it is a combonation of button pushes.

I just replaced the lamp on my Sony KDF-42E2000 TV. I am still getting a red horizontal line across the top two inches of my tv. What should I do to eliminate the line?


If you have a cable box hooked up try switching it to a different input. That might solve your problem, but if it doesn't then it's possible there may be a problem with the color wheel.

It overheats and pops the Xl-2100u lamp?


by pops? do you mean it explode? how many lamps? it could be the fan that supposed to be ventilating the lamp or it could be the the ballast, why the ballast because the ballast regulates the voltage in order the keep the lamp on, for ignition it sends around 15,000 volts after that it regulates the votage to a small amount of voltage around 5,000 so it could be sending the big amount of voltage all the time never regulates that or it could be regulating and then sending another big amount of voltage over and over until the lamp doesnt handle those changes.

Sony kdf-42e2000, lost picture and the 3 red lights started blinking. I did all the troubleshooting that have worked in the past, but no luck. Any ideas???


Maybe it's time to replace the lamp, have you ever changed the lamp on the TV before? If not, I recommend you do it, because it might be the main issue. Another thing can be the inverter board but you'll never know until you put another lamp in the TV and see for how ling it works, If it lasts less than 4 months, it will definitely be that board.
