Did you use a genuine sony replacement bulb or aftermarket? Often the aftermarket lamps are not up to par with the OEM versions.

Please make sure you have the Lamp seated properly in the set. If you purchased just the lamp without the basket make sure it is Flush against the front of the lamp basket. The light path is being obstructed or not aimed properly. Let me know, hope this helps.

SOURCE: Sony 60" LCD projection TV has yellow screen discoloration

It sounds like you have a bad Blue Polarizer in the light path. I'm sorry but that is something you will have to contact a service center for. It's not something you'll be able to do yourself, I'm sorry, but that's the best advice I can give you.

You have an open thermal fuse in the lamp housing. The fuse has an upgrade and is only accessible from the back of the TV>

I am trying to figure out how to replace my replacement lamp, but do not know where it is located.


Hi,

Lamp Access door for Sony KF50WE610 is below the screen on the front of the TV. This page shows location of Lamp access door and DIY bulb change instructions for most SONY LCD TVs:

DIY Bulb Installation Guide

XL-2000 XL-2100 XL-2200

XL-2400 XL-2500 XL-5000

XL-5100 XL-5200 XL-5300

This page shows Lamps and bulbs for all Sony LCD Projection TVs

Sony Lamp Gallery

Look at Optical Engine Faults before buying a lamp or bulb. Replacement bulb will not repair these problems.

Tv will not turn on


For dark picture I need to ask one question, How long ago you replaced its lamp? one year, two years?

Picture brightness is depends on lamp in LCD rear projection (DLP) TVs and if lamp got weak in generating light, you will see dark picture.

I would recommend to replace lamp and buy Sony original lamp from Sony Accessories Store.

Required lamp part number is as follows..
F93087500 LAMP BLOCK ASSY XL-2400
and price is $200
Good luck.

Sony Wega kdf-55wf655 rear projection set keeps turning on and off


If picture quality is poor, be sure you aligned the bulb in the correct manner and be sure the cover for the bulb is not loose. Also, you might want to re check you picture setting as it might have gotten reset when you pulled the plug (I hope you pulled the plug when replacing the bulb).
Heres another solution (maybe temporary) to the problem of no picture and no sound for 30 seconds. I had my tv's power saving setting on "standard" before. After I switched it to "reduced", the problem was fixed. It has been almost two weeks without the problem. I think its a good fix until the new bulb comes in the mail.
