When the lamp does ignite, it looks fine. But it doesn't ignite regularly now.


The fan comes on. I bought it at AVS in 07. It's been a good performer. I am really not ready to upgrade.


The lamp is pretty new.. The ballast? What are my options for service? Southern Califrornia


Thanks gents.

Sounds like the ballast or some part of the power supply. Usually lamps are a go or no-go. Once in a while as they are getting old you might find this happens, but from the sound of your description it seems to be fairly regular.

Thanks. Am looking into Sony service center locations here.


I doubt I will try to replace the ballast myself.


Thanks again

Welcome. It is probably best to be safe. Plus it may not need a full replacement, it could be way more simple (bad resistor, lose connection, etc...). Better to start small.
