My Sony model KDS-50A2000 TV won't turn on. When I press the power button, the green power light comes on and flashes for approx. 30 seconds then the red lamp light starts flashing. No picture or no sound. I checked the bulb with an ohm meter for continuity and there was none but didn't know if there should have been. Could this just be the bulb or does this describe another problem?
The lamp inside your TV is a mercury vapor lamp. It cannot be checked like a traditional light bulb. The lamp can be replaced and you should be back to watching TV. The lamp part number is F93088600.
