Lamp Replacement on Sony Wega TV

Hi. It is time to replace the lamp for my Sony KDSR50XBR1 50 Inch TV.
I would love to do it myself, but the Sony manual doesn't tell you where the lamp is located on the TV itself. Can you tell me where on the tv the lamp is located?

    Thanks to all for your assistance. The door to the lamp was located on the side of the TV by the on/off switch. It was quite easy to remove the old lamp and replace it with the Sony XL 5100 lamp. The new lamp came with very clear instructions on how to replace it. The only tricky part was realizing that the lamp slides in at an angle, and that you really needed to push it in with more force than you would think to hear it click into place. The lamp cost $250. I could have purchased similar lamps for less, but I wanted to use the Sony brand which contained the lamp and it's housing. There are cheaper priced lamps available on the web, but read carefully. Some are only the bulb, and not the lamp and housing.

You can save some $$ by replacing only the bulb. Cost of bulb with housing is $250, bulb only is about half that. See how here:

Lamp is located on side of TV. Same side as Power Button. Remove one screw, open door, Pull ring up and out and bulb assy comes out. Tricky to re-install though.

Is your TV still under warranty? If it is, then you should send it back and let them fix it. If you do it yourself, you might void the warranty.

Sony wega 55 inch tv turns on fine but after one minute tv shuts itself off and comes back on 40 seconds later by itself and this cycle continues - none of the error code lights blink


This kind of problem occurs when lamp becomes weak that means near to end of working life hours but still not dead nor broken.
Replacement of lamp in tv will solve your problem, lamp replacement procedure is easy and would be written in user manual.
Thanks.

Changed lamp and TV won't turn on, power light flashes 3 times


Hi,
Red light blinking 3 times shows problem with lamp cover.
Lamp cover is not fixed securely in your tv after lamp replacement. Lamp cover is first thing that was removed to replace lamp, check lamp cover and make sure its back in place properly.
Thanks.

Sony KDSR50XBR1 50 black screen, no faults! Lamp working, fans OK Sony KDSR50XBR1 50" HDTV: The light engine was working fine before the fan quit starting on it's own. After disassembly, cleaning and lubrication of the fan, I have no errors but the input display or menu options will not post on the screen. The lamp is on but seems to either be projecting a solid black picture, or not be at full brightness and there are no faults. I have a solid greed LED on top, but can get no picture. Sound is fine. What should the lamp voltage be at operating mode? I have tried reseating connectors and pushing on the wires to make sure the connectors seat. This is baffelling because the lamp fired fine for 1 second before the stuck fan issue was corrected and I have no faults now after lubricating the fan. I'm going to check connectors again today as a triple check; as I did remove the power supply. The TV has been reset per instructions in the book. Any advice would be much appreciated but I cannot believe it's the OB as it worked fine before the fan quit and it's about 14 months old. I'm thinking something may not be assembeled correctly, but everthing seems to be pretty idiot proof for re-assembly. Also the menu or input banners will not post. I have 2 new lamps, so it's not that.It seems to be stuck in somne black screen mode. The large fan does start by itself now after cleaning and lubrication, therefore no fault blinks. Please help!!!
