I have a Sony KDS-R50XBR1 I cannot remove the "old" XL5100 to replace it I follow the instructions to lift the ring, put my thumb on the groove and pull out Only it won't I cannot see...

XL5100 has lock lever that holds it intact inside tv, you need to put thumb on groove and press it to release the lock then pull out lamp, below image of lamp shows lock lever that moves upward when you press groove so lock gets release and lamp slides out very easily with little pull.
Please check new/ replacement lamp (if it is Sony original, it would be complete lamp including casing) for below mentioned lock function to have better idea how it works.
Hope these info will help you.

The picture on my Toshiba 57H82 model went out. What Type of bulb do I buy and how do I change it?

if you type in "toshiba 57h82" in a google search, the page should show you a list of lamps of veriuos stores with variuos prices. Now to change it, can have a great resource of information about how to change the lamps. In youtube, just type in DLP lamp replacement. You may not find one on your set, but after whatching a few of the videos, you should have a working knowledge how to change it yourself. Just remember not to touch the front part of the lamp with bare hands. the oils in your body can cause premature damage to the lamp. Use rubber gloves. Cheap ones for a dolor store will work fine.

Sony KDF-E50A12U TV Swith on ok, after about 30 seconds the tv goes into standby mode, green power light on with 3 rapid red flashing lights. Any assistance appreciated

red light flashing means it can't dectect lamp housing. you can try and take it out (door on side of TV to the right hand side) and reinsert. But it probably means your lamp has blown. Replacement xl-2400 lamp is east to replace. Search ebay to buy one (about £100) and youtube has a video showing how to do it.

Change housing

there's a video on Youtube at

The 1st minute shows how to remove the outer casing - the rest of the video is how to strip right down

It's not clear but you need :-
a t6 screwdriver (to undo the screws)
tweezers to remove the screws
A flat edge to split the case (take care when you do)
