Brightness We just replaced our lamp and while the picture is definitely brighter than it was before we replaced it - it still doesn't seem as bright as it was orginally. We use the set a lot and its about 2 years old!

Try cleaning mirror with a Lint free cloth with no other cleaning solution just dry lint free cloth. You should have Two access holes that you can pop out to get to mirror. Of course it will not be real easy to get to mirror if you do not have long arms but I have done it many times. Mirror sometimes get fogged causing poor reflection of mirror. This may help.

Brightness problems with sony kf-50we610

This is typical for a set that uses a lamp, as the lamp needs to warm up.

If it is taking longer than normal to brighten up, then your lamp could just be aging and needs replaced.

Do they make brighter bulbs for the LitePro 580 projector

Nope. You can NOT increase brightness of a projector by installing a brighter lamp. Sorry. The only option is replacing the projector with a brighter model.
