Please call a sony authorized service center . Sony I believe is still extending warranty on this model for this problem.

I'm seeing an uneven darker blue or a haze along the bottom after I changed the bulb. Looks like a blue cloud along the bottom darker, very noticable when I first shut the TV off and it blue screens during...


You have something on the lens. If the lens was producing excessive heat it could be the melting around the lens itself, or it could be grease from your finger that was clear until it got hot enough to cook onto the glass. Either way, remove and clean the bulb lens (the one on the bulb you change out when the bulb blows) and then re-clean the focus lens on the front of the projector (the one you turn to focus).

If this doesn't clear it up, look for damage on the focus lens or the bulb lens.

How do I replace the lamp? Do I need just the bulb, or also the housing?


just the bulb.. write down the model number of the unit and they will give you the same bulb that you need, just give them the model number.

If you are going to install the bulb just remember DO NOT HOLD directly the bulb, use any clothe or gloves, because even a fingerprint can busted the bulb even thou it's not yet use

Lamp cover melting


Open the back case (about 10 screws) and clean the lamp cooling fan. This is NOT the one you can see from the outside. It is located in a horizontal position above the lamp area from the rear. A DRY toothbrush can be used to brush out the dust. Keep a vacuum nozzle next to it while cleaning so the dust does not go inside. Some say to use compressed air to blow out the dust, but vacuuming it keeps better control and can prevent unwanted dust from moving down into the optics.

I learned this the hard way when replacement lamp burnt out in one week. I thought the cooling fan that you can see from the outside (it actually is the exhaust fan) was the only fan. The lamp cooling fan sucks in cool air and puts it right down onto the lamp.

Test the fans by turning on unit without lamp installed (the fans will power on for a short period of time and you can see them function to verify airflow). Clean this fan once a year as the dust will be back.

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.

Sony KF-50WE610 flahing red light (6 blinks)


Jeff, did you look at the Sony web site? They had a problem with 9 different TV models that were from 2003 and 2004, KF-42WE610, KF-50WE610, KF-60WE610 and 6 other models.
This is what it states: It haas come to our attention that a limited number of Grand WEGA rear projection TV's may exhibit warping to the lamp access door. In rare cases, some additional components may also become damaged as a result. and so on........
You probably have some components melted on the inside around the lamp. I have a 42 inch and I just replaced the lamp at Christmas and the door was melted shut. This is the second lamp that I have replaced, the door was starting to melt the first time. They never sent me anything about this problem, and as of today I am still trying to work something out with them. The repair shop who has it told me that it can't be repaired. The parts that are melted are not in stock and they don't make them anymore. They are supposed to get back with me and make me some kind of offer.
They will only fix this problem through March 31, 2009.

  • Installation is Quick and Easy:
    In most cases, replacing your projection lamp is quick and easy. However, it is recommended that you consult your owner's manual for more detailed instructions:
  • Unplug your Projector from your power outlet
  • Allow the lamp to cool for at least one (1) hour before replacing it
  • Remove the Lamp unit cover
  • Unscrew the lamp housing unit
  • Remove the old lamp housing unit and discard
  • Screw in the new lamp housing unit
  • Place the cover back onto your unit Caution: Do NOT touch the bulb directly with your fingers.

    I have read that OEM compatible LCD Rear Proj bulbs don't typically last as long as the OEM name brands... is this true? I have a Sony Grand WEGA KF-50WE610 I see bulbs w/complete housing units at...


    The answer is yes and no. Typically OEM compatible or OEM equivalent lamps last as long as the original, but you have to remember that since it isn't the XL2100u that it's not guaranteed to work the way the OEM lamp does.

    Every reseller doesn't use the same specs when they put the lamp and housing together, some of the bulbs aren't always going to be up to the specifications of the OEM, but it will fit in and work.

    The best tip I can suggest is to buy a lamp from a store with good warranty, so if something does happen after you bought it, you have some recourse.
