Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

My tv model: KDF-E50A10. I've replaced the lamp several times. Each time the lamp seemingly goes bad within a week with only mild use. The TV will power on with a picture for about 2 minutes, then the screen goes black and the green power/standby light flashes continuously for a minute. Lastly the screen comes back on with picture for another 2 minutes before it starts the whole cycle again. Buying another new lamp will get it to work normally for another couple of days before the lamp seemingly goes bad and it goes back into the power cycling behavior again. No red light flashes at all, only the continuous flashing of the green power/standby light during the black screen. The green power light stays on solid when it's between cycles and the screen is working with picture. TV is clean, all the cooling fans are working with good air flow. Why do my lamps keep burning out so quickly?

Sounds like a bad lamp, the lamp needs to be replaced every few years and rebooting is a symptom of a bad lamp. you can buy a lamp for around $100 -120 if you search the internet

SOURCE: I have a sony wega kdf-e50a10 I replaced the lamp

Without having a technician there to diagnose this problem is going to take some troubleshooting. First, I would take the lamp back out of the TV and then reinstall it and try turning the TV on again. If that does not work there could be numerous things wrong with the TV. The heat sensor in the TV could be bad or the actual light engine, which is essentially the heart of the TV, could be bad. If it is the light engine then it is cheaper to buy a new TV.

SOURCE: just replaced lamp/housing and now

Strange situation, have you tried unplugging it for a few minutes and letting the TV cool. I have a older 2006 Sony SXRD rear projection and it takes forever to turn back on if you shut it off then turn it back on. Check this link and maybe its giving you a blinking code. Try counting the number of blinks. Hope this helps.

Let me know if you have addition question or tv model number is other than above said (KDF-E50A10).

The tv will turn on but no the screen wont. and

Replace the lamp would be the first thing to try. Lamp door switch on this model is notorious for going bad. If you replace lamp and still won't turn on jumper door switch. If you take off back you can see switch board.

4 times blink error shows that any FAN is not running in TV as there are 4 fans in this TV.
