Most of these sets the lamp is replaced from the front of the set.


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.

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.
