Question about Sony Grand WEGA KF50WE610 50" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
Most of these sets the lamp is replaced from the front of the set.
FIRST: UNPLUG THE TV!
The piece under the screen that goes all the way across has to be removed. If you look at the back on either side and see a black plastic knob--they can be turned by hand until out(they do not come all the way out).
With them unscrewed, grasp the front edge of the grill on one side and pull it out---it will not come out gently---once one side is part way out repeat the process with the other side---then you have to get a hand under either side and pull---other then the two hand bolts it is secured with large plastic pegs--some models also have wedges at the top---once the sides and bottom are free you lift it up from the bottom and pull it off.
With the plate off you will see the lamp door--one or more screws will secure it. The lamp is inside in a cartridge with a handle---two silver allen bolts secure it---the will back out but not come out---attached to cartridge. With the bolts loose---get a hand on the handle and slide the lamp out.
With the lamp out and or with a replacement lamp-DO NOT TOUCH THE FACE OF THE LAMP WITH YOUR HAND---LIKE the Halogen lamps oil from you skin can damage it.
Most of the SONY replacement lamps come with the allen wrench.
