Model number indicated is a 42 inch, not a 60 inch but lamp should be same for both.

The entire bezel (plate of plastic) under the screen has to be removed; you should find on the back on either side a black plastic thumb wheel that can be backed out (it will not come out but just back out until free).

With the 2 completely loose grasp the plate from the bottom right and pull on it from right to left; it is held in with several plastic pegs and will resist being removed; pull from the bottom as it is also secured at the top with large tabs that engage just under the screen.

The idea is to get it free all the way across the bottom and then lift up on the plate and pull it down and away.

Have the set off and unplugged at this point.

The lamp door will be easy to see and is marked. Usually just one screw and with the set off/unplugged the lamp cartridge is secured with 2 Allen bolts (replacement lamps come with a tool).

The lamp assembly has a handle and with the two bolts backed loose you grasp the built in handle and slide the lamp cartridge out and away.

Average life on the lamp is 2,000 hours.

There are two ways to buy the lamp----Google the model number and use the word lamp after it.

Some sites sell a generic "bulb"; you have to dismantle the cartridge and replace the bulb---I do not suggest this as generic lamps do not in most cases have a good record of long life.

Not to mention if you get a cartridge unit you just have to install it and lock the bolts back.

It is very important when you install it you do not touch the face of the lamp with your hand as oil on you hand can damage the lamp.

Also, it is important the two pin plug that connects the lamp inside the set engage perfectly.

These lamps are considered to be "customer replaceable" but you need to do it right.

Please let me know if you have questions as I am here to help you.

Tv will come on but shuts itself back off


Sounds like it just needs a new lamp.
The way to tell is the lights in front:
green blinking as TV reboots = bad lamp
red three blinks = door switch
red four blinks = bad fan
6 or 9 blinks = bad thermal fuse

Picture is dark


Adjust video settings:
  1. Press Wega Gate
  2. Select Settings
  3. Highlight Video
  4. Press + to select
  5. Adjust/increase the brightness.
  6. Press Wega gate to exit.
If picture is still dark, you need to replace the lamp again. Sony recommends that you replace the lamp:
  1. After approximately 8,000 hours of use.
  2. When the screen becomes dark or the color becomes unusual.
  3. When the lamp indicator on the front of the TV flashes.

Sony grand wega KF60DX100 Won't Power on


THE RED LIGHT THAT BLINKS IS IT THE LAMP BOX THAT THE RED LIGHT BLINKS IN OR THE STAND BY LIGHT THAT BLINKS ? IF ITS THE LAMP BOX THAT BLINKS THEN YOUR LAMP HAS BLOWN AND NEEDS REPLACED YOU CAN FIND THE PART # FOR YOUR T.V. FOR A NEW OR REFURBISHED LIGHT IN YOUR OPERATING MANUAL AND WITH THE PART # BUY A NEW ONE OFF EBAY,ALSO YOUR OWNERS MANUAL WILL GIVE YOU STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO REPLACE IT AS THIS IS A COMMON PROBLEM WITH PROJECTION T.V.'S IF ITS THE STAND BY LIGHT THAT BLINKS I NEED TO KNOW HOW MANY TIMES IT BLINKS AS THAT'S A SELF DIAGNOSTICS CODE THAT YOUR T.V. IS GIVING FOR THE PROBLEM AND FOR SONY THERESE NO CODE FOR 1 BLINK OF THE STAND BY LIGHT.

It's in standby mode.

Do a reset and see what happens

While holding down the reset button on the remote
Press the power button on the tv
(The tv will turn itself off the back on)
Now release the reset button

It sounds like the lamp needs replaced.
