Sony KDF-60XBR950 TV /How to replace the interlock?

Hello,
I have a problem with the lamp door interlock switch in the front of TV.
About two years ago this cover was warped by the heat and I purchased a new plastic cover.
Just recently we noticed that the entire interlock needs to be replaced. I removed the lamp but am unsure how to replace the interlock switch.
Does anyone have any advice on how to replace the front cover lamp interlock?
Thanks in advance for your help!

2003-2004 Model Year Grand WEGA Televisions:

Models: KF-42WE610, KF-50WE610, KF-60WE610, KDF-70XBR950, KDF-60XBR950, KDF-42WE655, KDF-50WE655, KDF-55WF655, KDF-60WF655, KDF-55XS955, KDF-60XS955, KF-42WE620, and KF-50WE620.

As technology evolves, Sony continually looks to stand behind the reliability of its televisions. It has come to our attention that a very limited number of televisions manufactured between 2003-2005, after a period of time exhibit a stationary scribble / random line pattern on the screen. Click here to see photos of this symptom.

As part of our commitment to quality, Sony is announcing that for any owner of this model television who paid out-of pocket expenses on or before May 26, 2006 for an estimate or repair service to replace the optical block for this specific issue, Sony will reimburse the customer by mail for his/her parts and labor expenses. To receive reimbursement, please follow completely the directions and terms on the claim form for reimbursement; all claims must be postmarked by May 31, 2007.

In addition, for any customer who later experiences this issue on one of the affected models, Sony will cover the cost of the optical block repair at no charge through September 30, 2007. All other terms of the Sony limited warranty continue to apply.

Is very likely that the lamp will need to be replace soon.
Is some cases those spots might be generated in the inner part of the lamp.

3 blinks is the lamp door error code. Try jumpering the door switch. These switches are notorious for going bad.

How do I access the lamp on a Vega KF-60WE610?


This page shows Sony lamp location and bulb replacement.
Sony DIY Bulb Guide.

The XL2100 Lamp assembly is located behind the grill, under the front screen. Thumbscrews on left and right loosen and the panel pulls off.

Open Lamp access door by loosening the thumbscrew on the front. The lamp is behind the door and attached by two mounting screws. The mounting screws require an "Allen" or Hex key.

Never attempt to access the bulb or open the door when the bulb is hot. Allow 30 minutes to cool.

Look for specific LED indicator codes on the front of the TV. An explanation of the most likely fault is in your Sony user's manual. Links to free Sony user manuals are also on the link above. Lots of instructions regarding safety, mercury disposal, removing the lamp.

Do not buy a bulb and waste your money if any Sony TV Optical Block or Optical Engine Faults are or were visible before bulb failure.
