Introducing the TV
How to replace the lamp,
see page 104.
The indicators show the current status of your TV. If there is a change in the
condition or a problem with the TV, the indicators will flash or light up in
the manner described below to let you know that it requires your attention.
The projection lamp has burned out. Replace it with new one
(see page 104).
When one of the timers is set the indicator will remain lit (will
not flash) even when the TV is turned off.
Your TV uses a projection lamp as its light source. As with any lamp, it has
limited life and needs to be replaced when the Lamp indicator flashes or the
screen becomes darker. Note the following:
After turning on your TV, it may take a while (1 minute or less) before
the picture appears.
When the projection lamp wears out, the screen goes dark. Replace the
lamp with a new Sony XL-5100 replacement lamp (not supplied).
The light emitted from the lamp is quite bright when your TV is in
use. To avoid eye discomfort or injury, do not look into the light
housing when the power is on.
The lamp for the light source is preparing to turn
on. When it is ready, it turns on.
The lamp door or the lamp is not securely attached.
The red indicator will continue to flash in intervals
of three blinks at a time until the lamp door or the
lamp is placed correctly.
The red indicator is on when i.LINK STANDBY is
on or when your TV is in the PC power saving
