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?

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.

    When the tv is on, randomly the screen blacks out , the green standby button blinks about 50 times which is about 30 sec. then the picture and sound comes back on.  If it is the lamp, is there only one and how difficult is it to replace  yourself?

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.

SOURCE: Lamp Replacement on Sony Wega 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.

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.

Blinking of the lamp light indicates that the lamp has to be replaced. However, the blue spots may be due to the optical block issue. To confirm this try connecting a different video source and check.

Lamp Replacement on Sony Wega TV


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.
