Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-60WF655 60" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Lamp(lite bulb) is dead - need to buy replacement and install it

My tv (Sony WEGA KDF-60WF655) has stopped working because the bulb is dead. Do you know what kind of bulb I need from Sony, where to get it (Chicagoland or online) and what it might cost? Is it hard to install? Is the bulb located in the bottom part of the back of the TV or on the top half? We took the bottom part off of the TV but really don't know what to look for? Can a novice do this? Please advise. THanks.

Click here to find the lamp for your TV. You will still need to use the existing cage assembly, once you remove the old lamp you will be able to see how it's assemble.
For the lamp replacement instructions, you will need to download the owner's manual and go to page 16 to 22 to know how is done.

Good Luck.

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!
