Question about Sony (XL-2400) Projector Lamp for KDF-E42A10, KDF-E50A10
I bought a new Sony xl2400 lamp. Delicately and accurately replaced the old lamp with the new one. Installed the lamp and housing correctly. Closed the lamp access doors correctly. Turned on TV...red light blinking 3 times and nothing else. Tried again and again. Put the old lamp back in (thinking maybe new lamp was bad) Same thing happens. FYI...I did not buy a new housing, just new lamp. I put the old housing back together on the new lamp just as instructed. What could I be doing wrong? Any help would be appreciated as I didn't get much sleep last night. Normally technical issues like this don't elude my problem solving abilities.
I had same issue. Green power light comes on briefly, fan starts to power up, then it dies and power light starts flashing red 3 times over and over. Above solution is correct. You have to play with it until it seats just right. After pushing unit in firmly so it fits snug, try lifting unit up ever so slightly. There is just a slight amount of play, but make sure it is fully seated. Try moving it up or down a hair, and keep retrying. Ridiculous, I know, but better than sending it back to get another one that does the same thing. After about 10 tries, it worked. I think the replacements may be more sensitive. During my trial and error, I popped the old one back in (since it wasn't completely burned out) and it fired right up the first time.

Ok so I did like yall said hear and it worked!..... for about 5 min. Then it went out, and I hear a rattling noise in the new bulb. I don't hear it in the old one. Could I have done something to cause the bulb to blow

Same issue as those above. I was just about to return the replacement part when I stumbled upon this thread. I tried what Charlie recommended, an even wiggled it a little (I wouldn't try to mess with it too much) - but nothing happened!
I was going to finally give up when I decided to push down on the release lever (pulling it up releases it). I'd figure to push the lever down so it's on there firmly. IT WORKED!
