Yep. New lamp. I believe that it is an XL2100U for the kdf-50we655. Should run about $200.00.

If you have your original owner's manual, it will walk you through changing the lamp. If you do not have it, then it should be available to find the manual on the support section of or on

I hope this helps you...

Won't turn on - red lamp light flashing

Most likely it is the lamp. Open the lamp door and check the lamp visually. If it is shattered or cracks. Also if there is a cloud near the stem of the lamp, the lamp has reached the end of it's serviceable life. Replace the lamp to fix it. If you need further instruction replacing the lamp, there are step by step directions available in your owner's manual with pictures. If you lost the manual, download it in PDF format from Sony's website for free.
