The lamp is at the front of the TV just to the right of the power button. Make sure to unplug the TV. Also, if the TV has been on let it set for awhile because the bulb will be hot for some time after the TV has been turned off. You have to remove the cover that is just below the screen. This cover runs the entire lengh of the TV. You first have to loosen the thumb screws that are located at the back of the TV. One is toward the bottom left. Other is toward the bottom right. Once these are loose the front panel can be carefully removed. From the front of the TV carefully put outward on the cover at the far right. Right side of cover should pop loose. Do the same on the left side. Next pull gently at the bottom of the cover near the center. Cover should come off now. Once the cover is removed you should see a cover over the lamp. Another thumb screw holds on the cover. The lamp should now be held in with two allen screws. Loose these and pull out the lamp. Make sure you replace the lamp cover after replacing the bulb or the TV won't turn on.

It is located in the front of the set behind either a long metal strip cover or a plastic cover. some sets have wing nuts hoding the cover in place. they would be located on the left and right hand side of the set near the bottom edges.

I have a Sony tv KDF50WE655, the other day while I was watching tv, heard a noise and the tv went off, displying the lamp red light..I ordered and replaced the lamp. I made sure the lamp is ok and the door...


Please make sure lamp cover is fixed properly in its position after lamp replacement as it has to press a safety switch located nearby lamp cover.
3 times red blink problem is related with that lamp cover safety switch only.
Hope this will help.
Thanks.

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:

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

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

Front panel should unscrew with thumbscrews and pop off and there should be an access cover for the bulb in center.

LAMP


Replace the lamp. In rare cases, the lamp power supply or lamp ballast may also need replacing. But, replace the lamp first, and use an original Sony lamp not a cheap aftermarket replacement. If this helps, please be sure to rate the fix! Thanks!
