Check the owners manual for instructions. If you don't have it download one from Sony's support website.

There is an external cover over the lamp that is removed with thumb screw(s). If the lamp has a lever, simply lift it and pull. If it is secured with an allen screw, unscrew it and pull the bulb out. Note the lamp orientation and put the new one back oriented the same way. If the old one gets disoriented after you take it out, just match up the high voltage connector inside the TV with the one on the lamp.

My tv is on standby and will not turn on


Try connecting the TV directly to a different wall outlet and check. If the issue persists, try power resetting the TV. Turn Off the TV and remove the power plug from the wall outlet for 1 minute and reconnect it and check the operation. If the issue persists, then the TV requires service

The picture goes off, the power/standby light


Sony KDF-60XS955 picture goes and power/standby light light flashes


Hi,

Most likely you have bulb failure. First step in troubleshooting is "Change the Lamp or Bulb". Lightning, power line bumps and collisions with vacuum cleaners can all shorten lamp life. Rough handling in shipment can also happen without your knowledge.

+90% of all Sony LCD Rear Projector "No Picture or Intermittent Picture" faults are related to bulb failure.

If new lamp does not improve the situation, then hands-on troubleshooting by someone that has parts and knows how the unit works is the only practical remedy.

Sony Wega kdf-50E2000 Keeps turning off and on


Before you replace the lamp I recommend trying to clean/dust the lamp component and lamp plug in area. I had the same problem and was able to resolve it by simply blowing the dust off the lamp components and fan. Use a can of high pressure air to get into the cracks and crevices.

I have a KDF-60WF655 and the lamp light turns on


Joann,
If you buy an original Sony lamp (and I would recommend you do) you will get the lamp with the housing and the allen wrench you need to change the bulb. You shouldn't need a ballast.The reasons to stick with an orginal Sony lamp:
1)You get the lamp with the housing. Some of the aftermarkets just send the lamp and reflector
2) the originals have far less problems than the aftermarkets. I have seen replacements fail early and not be bright enough.
If you have any further questions, feel free to ask. If you are happy with this solution, please rate it. Thanks!
