How do I access the lamp on a Vega KF-60WE610?


This page shows Sony lamp location and bulb replacement.
Sony DIY Bulb Guide.

The XL2100 Lamp assembly is located behind the grill, under the front screen. Thumbscrews on left and right loosen and the panel pulls off.

Open Lamp access door by loosening the thumbscrew on the front. The lamp is behind the door and attached by two mounting screws. The mounting screws require an "Allen" or Hex key.

Never attempt to access the bulb or open the door when the bulb is hot. Allow 30 minutes to cool.

Look for specific LED indicator codes on the front of the TV. An explanation of the most likely fault is in your Sony user's manual. Links to free Sony user manuals are also on the link above. Lots of instructions regarding safety, mercury disposal, removing the lamp.

Do not buy a bulb and waste your money if any Sony TV Optical Block or Optical Engine Faults are or were visible before bulb failure.

I have the kf-42we610 and it just buzzes and the light blinks when i try and turn it on. how can i tell if the lamp needs to be replaced


Take the front cover off of the tv. There are 2 knobs on the back of the tv (one on each side) that you have to unscrew and then you can pop the front panel off. Now you can take the lamp out using a metric allen wrench on 2 bolts. When the lamp is broken it's generally shattered or atleast the long middle section is detached from the lamp. Hope this helps

How do I remove front panel for sony KF-60WE610 TV


Easy!

Have a look at the bottom left and right corners of your set from behind. You will see two plastic flat head screws. You can loosen the screws by hand, they are made for it.

No do not try to take them out completely, they are not supposed to come out all the way.

Pull the silver bottom panel off. Pull it from the front. It will still be stuck, but only due to magnets Sony has mounted to ease the reassembly after fitting the new globe.

Once you have done what you want to, remember to tighten the plastic screws, once again do it by hand.

Good luck!

How and where do you install a replacement lamp XL2100U?


You need to replace the lamp which is located in the front under the plastic cover. The plastic cover extends the length or width of the TV. The cover can be kind of tricky to take off, but it is just held in by pop-in type rivets that snap in like a male into a female hole along with removing the 2 large screws on the back side on each left and right side. You can't miss these two larger screws. There are two other smaller phillps screws there, but you should not have to remove these. After you remove the large screws only the front pops off and it may feel like you are going to break the plastic front cover, but it does pop off and pull straight out. The lamp will be visible right in the front and is held in by two screws and after removing the screws the entire light assembly slides right out which is plugged into a socket. You can buy just the bulb or for a few dollars more the entire plastic box assembly with the bulb already in it. Replacing it should only take about 10 minutes. Hope this helps.

If my lamp is out, would sound be present?


Check lamp cooling fan for dust blockage. It is located inside the back cover (10 screws) and is in a horizontal position above the lamp from the rear side. This is an air intake fan. The cooling fan you can see on the back panel is the exhaust fan that sucks out the hot air. A clue is hot or melt marks around the lamp housing.

If the lamp cooling fan is blocked you'll get red flashing diagnostics light flashing. It's trying to say clean me so I can keep the new lamp cool. Sony is silent on this in it's manuals. I'm guessing they don't care because is causes lot's of parts business!

I learned all this after replacement lamp burnt out after 1 week. My lamp cooling intake fan was found blocked and wasn't spinning. I saw the exhaust fan working and thought all was ok, not even knowing there were more fans. Some models even have another fan inside the optics blocker. I didn't take mine apart that far.
