Question about Sony Grand WEGA KF50WE610 50" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
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?
I have a Sony model KF50WE610, which is about 3 years old that won't turn on. The green light next to the on buttom blinks 3 or 4 times and then turns red. Through researching the problem, it appears the the lamp is out and needs to be replaced. I removed the rear lower cover, but I cannot find the location of the lamp. Basically, I'm looking for the location of the lamp in order to replace the old lamp with a new one. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Please explain the location of the lamp for a sony kf-50we610 50 inch tv. Note same problem as above.

Had the lamp burn out on my Sony Grand WEGA KF50WE610 50 in. after 7 years oof use, which sounds like I got a winner compared to lots of people who bought this model in '03 &'04! I ordered a replacement lamp w/ housing from Electrified via amazon for $60, plus $10 for 2 day shipping. Installed with no issues and is working great so far. Thanks to everyone who posted what the issue was and directions to install! That saved me a lot of $ and hassle buying a new TV.

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:

This model also has a paper filter for the Optic block that should be changed. No one ever said anything about it. shortens the life of the optic block if not changed.
