Sony KDS-55A2020Here is an interesting repair we had today. Customer brought in a Sony KDS-55A2020 SXRD projection TV. He purchased a new lamp on the internet and replaced it and TV did not work. Original problem TV was working and each time when he turned TV on message appears on bottom” lamp going bad soon”. He had to install the lamp into the cartridge by himself only problem he did not assemble lamp cartridge right and put wrong screw in wrong places. Customer did bring TV into shop and we reinstalled lamp correctly put right screws and secured them properly. Reset message in menu under tools lamp hours. This message displays after so many hours and does not always indicate the lamp is bad. Each time you replace a lamp you have to reset lamp hours or message will remain on screen and only a few TV manufacturers use this message. In most cases when customer brings the lamp in for replacement we can check it and find most of the lamps are good. Go to Menu then Setup way on bottom you will see DLP Lamp replacement, check arrow right to start message will ask has lamp been replaced say yes. Individual manufacturers have different reset procedures
