My 42' Sony went completely red after being on about 30 mins. I went in the back and feddled until I wasted liquid from the blue light. Turned it back on and it showed a beautiful picture for about 4 hours. Then went green. Where can I find a blue light to replace the one in the back of the TV. I'm sure that is the problem and my TV will work again for another 4 yrs.

Re: How to replace projection lights in 42' TV?
The CRTs are usually what they call a matched set, meaning if you replace one you should replace them all this is going to cost you about at least $400.00. The liquid you felt was coolent for the blue tube, by the way I hope you cleaned your hands after touching that stuff it is a kin to glycoalochol which is poison. I would suggest www.electronix.com as a place to begin to look for the part or parts (I suggest replacing all three CRTs to manitain the matched abilities of the tubes).

Hi, Red light blinking 3 times shows problem with lamp cover. Lamp cover is not fixed securely in your tv after lamp replacement. Lamp cover is first thing that was removed to replace lamp, check lamp cover and make sure its back in place properly. Thanks.
Sony has had alot of problems with the light engines
and your set is DLP. Call Encompass Parts Distrubtion for Part number and Price then go to E-Bay look under Electronics tpye in part number .I have found same Parts Alot cheaper on Ebay,some by as much as $300.00
you can Google website or call 1-800-638-3328
If its Sony KDF-42WE655 TV that goes to standby and LED blinks 3 times then check Lamp Door that seems not fixed properly. That happens when lamp replaced in TV. If its different model number TV, let me know exact model number.
