I have a Sony KDF-E50A10 and I replaced the lamp. But the stand by/power light blinks red 3 times and still no pic or volume or nothing. What could it be ?

I managed to locate a manual for your TV and also a Support page on the Sony website which identified your problem clearly on two entries ie "The STAND BY indicator on the front of the projection television flashes three times" and "The STAND BY indicator on the projection television flashes 3 times". I thought this was going to be easy having found these, but both led to a page that said "This solution is no longer available". Thank you Sony !!!!
I didn't give up here found a YouTube video which described your "3 flashes" and stated that the bulb needed replacement if this was seen. I understand that the model is not exactly as yours but I give the link below:
How to replace TV lamp
Please look at it carefully because it looks as if - if this is correct - that you may have replaced one faulty bulb with another faulty bulb. Other than this I can't find anything very helpful on the internet.
Good Luck and best wishes

Hello. I've inherited a small color Durabrand television. I would like to know if there is a particular remote that I might be able to use for this Durabrand television model DWT1304? Thank you.

I like the One-for-All brand universal remotes, but didn't find a code for Durabrand TVs, so I went to Sony's site and found this for one of theirs I also have, the RM-V310. Click the link below to see what they look like--of course, they're the best for all Sony equipment, but I haven't found too many things they won't operate, and if you look at the drop-down menu for TVs, you'll see like I did, that Durabrand is listed there, and I'd trust that from Sony with this remote any day. >>CLICK HERE

Your only problem is a bad Thermal fuse, This can be found in the lamp housing. You must take the back off in order to repair it. The part number is 1-910-023-93. Average cost is $9.00
