Hey, steve. There should be 2 Thumb screws holding the bottom panel in place, one on each end, they might be a bit hard to turn by hand but you can use a blade driver or flat screw driver to take them out. I think they don't come off completley so loosen them all the way as much as you can, then pull the panel out, pull hard enough because there are still some preassure clips holding it in place. Once it's out, look for the lamp access door to your left, you will see two access doors, the one to your left is the one you want to take off. It also has a thumb screw, once you loosen that, remove the door and you will see a black square with 2 allen drive screws, you'll have to remove those two screws, once loosen all the way out, pull the block out(called a cage) you should see the lamp, be careful not tom touch the face of the new lamp with your hands, use some cotton gloves when installing the new lamp. to re-assemble just reverse the procedure. Refer to the following link when disassembling the cage for new lamp replacement, it's very well displayed, can not discribe it any better. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xFUVTwPD1HM

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Usually this issue is resolved by removing the lamp and putting it back again. To check what has gone bad you have to remove the lower panel on your TV and access the lamp door, lamp is behind the lamp door. Remove the lamp and verify that there is no warping of the lamp door or surrounding area, if there is warping then Sony is providing extended warranty for some models(including yours) for the issue and you'll not be charged for the repair. Please check this link for extended warranty. However, lamp is not covered in extended warranty, so if there is no warping and the issue is not resolved after putting the lamp back in then you have to replace the lamp. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.



Thanks
Rylee

My Sony wega tv won't turn on goes into standby red light blinks 10 times then shuts off?


Look at the owner manual as the 10 blinks is a error code or Google the model number to locate that information--Sony error codes are general and often misleading.

I would if looking at the set inspect the lamp first.

Sony wega kdf42we655 power led blinking red


If lamp light is on at tv front then replace lamp as existing lamp sounds dead/ broken.
Lamp replacement procedure would be written in user manual of tv.
And if lamp light is not on but standby light is blinking then let me know how many times it is blinking to find out problem cause as standby light blinking is an error code.

I have a sony wega 46 inch tv model number: KDF42WE655 the screen went black and the red light came on where it says "lamp" on front of tv Does this mean I just need to replace the lamp?


If your tv is around 2-4 yrs or used 6000-8000 hrs,never replaced the lamp before it could be time to replace it.The other most common failure is the board that powers the lamp,which is called the ballast.When its bad it will make a clicking sound or like wanting to turn on.But pretty much it does sound like the lamp.your part # will be xl-2100 and you can find it here: http://www.discount-merchant.com/Sony-XL-2100U-TV-Lamp-p/sony_xl-2100u_replacement_lamp.htm and here's the instructions to replace it: http://guides.fixyourdlp.com/sony/XL-2100U.php Have a blessed one!

Lamp light is blinking on my sony lcd projection tv . how do I replace the lamp myself.


You have to remove the lower panel on your TV. You will have access to the lamp door at that time. Once that is removed the lamp is sitting behind the lamp door. Also once you do get the lower panel removed verify that there is no warping of the lamp door or surrounding area. If there is I have provided a link from the Sony website that indicates they will replace the warped parts and associated issues that caused the warping. The lamp however is NOT covered by this extension. Please take a moment to rate my answer. Thanks....

Tv will shut off and red light will flash 3 times


If its Sony KDF-42WE655 TV that goes to standby and LED blinks 3 times then check Lamp Door that seems not fixed properly.
That happens when lamp replaced in TV.
If its different model number TV, let me know exact model number.

Sony wega kdf42we655 won't turn on...green light blinks, faint whirring sound, (fan?),then nothing...red blinking


Did you notice if the screen has been recently going darker if so the lamp has gone.You can check it by removing the lamp and looking at it you will see a grey smoked area or even the lamp mount broken inside the lamp.
