So, before, my Sony KDF55E2000 LCD tv was shutting off every minute after it was turning on, with 3 blinking red LED lights and a message to replace the lamp. I took the TV apart and dusted it out with a paint brush and canned air, then took out the bulb, with intentions of dusting off the lamp housing, reseating it and seeing if that helped. I ended up taking out the bulb, and completely refurbishing it

Looks almost new now ^_^

before, it was so dusty, dull and had scorch marks that it looked like galvanized steel

I took out the bulb, dusted it out with Que tips, then cleaned it more with alcohol, then applied chrome polish with a microfiber cloth, then cleaned out any oils from my hand with alcohol and a que tip, then dusted out the que tip particles with canned air. Wasn't even expecting it to work :3

Not bad looking for over 8,000 hours of use =]

My current theater setup, not the best lol :3

The tv is literally now 5 times brighter than it was, and it's been on all night without shutting off. I think I fixed it ^_^

Judging by your 1st pic, it looks as you have a dust problem.

I'd put the missing side cover back on your PC.

Free, abundant OTA television separates this country from many others. ATSC1 has only been in force since 2009. The wireless industry has enough spectrum. Enough of 'planned obsolesce'.
