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

DISPLAY Channel 5 Volume + POWER .1. Access Service Adjustment Mode and select the Service Menu that

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
4. To change the Data Value, press 3 or 6 on the Remote
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

Pull your lamp out and re insert it. Make sure it is straight and you don't have to force it in. Then make sure all the doors are closed properly and tight. There are safty switches in there that if not pushed in, will trigger a 3 blink error. If after all this and you have the same problem, then you either have a bad T1 or T2 board. These are the small boards in the lamp door area that have the safety switches.

Hope Bob C does not mean computer_Bob who used to be a expert here.To address your question:If no error blink code exists (power light or other blinks a specific number of blinks) it likely is a issue in the power supply of the set which usually will give an error blink code of some type.Common failure reasons include but not limited to:LampBallastDirtYes, dirt inside (dust to be kind) will trigger shutdown etc.A lamp will usually before it fails give some indication like a dimmer picture but dirty fans and dust inside can also do this.In our shop if it is dirty inside first thing is it goes out the door and gets a good dose of compressed air--usually looks like a dust storm.Lamp life is on average 2,000 hours (average user it is 2 years) and generic lamps have a lesser life.Ballast usually is suspect if several lamps have failed in a shorter period of time but can just fail.These are my thoughts from working on this and similar sets--what have you tried so far?

Might also want to try amazon.com. Sony is 199
Amazon was around 150.

And you can easily do this yourself.
Theres a little door at the right side if your looking at the front. (left if your looking at the rear) Open that up and youll see another door that has a little latch on it. turn it about a 1/4 turn to the left and it will release that door and pull it straight out. then there is the bulb, and that has a little wire ring that is the release. Pull that up and out.

Thats the error code for the lamp cover not being attached properly or the lamp not installed properly. Check the door cover switch and also insure the lamp is seated fully into its compartment.
