Question about Sony XL-2100U Projector Lamp for KF-42WE610, KF-50WE610, KF-60WE610, KDF-60XBR950, KDF-70XBR95

1 Answer

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 Electrified for $129.00 + Shipping & I see other sites with OSCRAM bulbs only for $199 is there really a difference?

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.

Where do i buy the bulb


The best place to buy the lamp is Discount-Merchant.com!

They usually have sales going on, and you'll get the OEM for your TV which is made by Philips Lighting of North America. If you have the original lamp in your TV it's made by Philips... a P22h if you've got an LCD projection.

These lamps should last 2-3 years at minimum.

Always buy from authorized distributors and buy original OEM parts whenever possible.

Hello,
This is a classic case of a faulty lamp(even though it is new). Possible that it is a ballast(lamp power sply) problem but it is more likely that the lamp doesnt quite meet the required specifications. Your lamp may be a Non-OEM or a refurb. You should try to get it exchanged with the vendor you bought it from.
justlamps.com is a great source for bulbs.
good luck

Sony wega rear proj-i believe the bulbs burned out ,tv works in BW only


Because your TV is still projecting a B&W image doesn't mean the lamp is bad. This TV is having something else going on other than a lamp. Possibly a processing board issue if it's only projecting B&W.
This will need to go into a trusted service shop. I would call and see if you can get an estimate of repair first.
