Re: Replacement lamp

The lamp you received is correct. I own a lamp replacement company. It may of been pakaged incorrectly or maybe you received just the bulb and not the housing or vice versa (housing included). First, unless housing is damaged NEVER buy a new one...just the bulb will do. Housings are the biggest markup on replacement lamps. They are manufactired at a low cost and usually retailers drive up the lamp price because they include an uneeded housing. The bulb itself (XL-2100U) should be a round bulb. Check out my listing and compare this to what you received:

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.

How do i tell when the lamp needs replacement? I have little blue dots all over the center of the screen like a constellation that keeps getting more dense. would this go away if i replace the bulb?

I haven’t actually worked on this model, but I can tell you that the problem is NOT the lamp. You asked how you can tell when the lamp needs replacement, on the front there is a indictor labeled “lamp.” It will be flashing when the lamp does need replacement.

Being a LCD (quite like the LCD on your computer) over time you can develop bad Pixels. I am sorry I don’t have a fix for you, but I do hope you invested in the extended service plan on this one.
Best of luck to you!

Sony kf-60we610 stand by blinks 5 times

Hey there,
I've had my Sony KF-50WE610 for approx. 4years now and have just experienced the prob you described (though I didn't think to count the number of red blinks). I called Sony TV technical support (888-772-7669, #3 for TV/digital cameras, #1 for TV, then #1 again I think). They said that if the power/standby light blinks 5x, that means there's something wrong with the lamp driver and service will be required. Needless to say, I better go home and count my red blinks! Good luck, I hope this helps a bit. Have a happy and safe holiday!

Purple scribbly lines it left hand corner of tv screen

if the lines on your screen looks anything like the image below, you do have a problem with the lcd, problem is you need to replace what is called the light engin. unfortunatly the price of this part is just about as much as a new replacement tv. Get a sceond opinion fron a sony service center near you, as i cannot see your picute. good luck
