What you need is the owners manual my friend. In here it will show you where to get to the lamp and how to change the lamp. Go to
to get a free copy of the OWNERS manual. Page 16 tells you how to do this. Good Luck

It seems there is power supply related issue like overheating, I suggest you to try again after keep the TV unplugged about 30 minutes.

Part number for this model (2004 model) is: A1606-034B ---IT IS ALSO CALLED A XLU2100U and retails from Sony for $200 although you may be able to find it on the internet for less.

First: have the set turned off and then unplug:

The front grill under the screen has to be removed; you will find on either side on the back a single plastic black wheel you can back out by hand.

The front grill pops out(they do not come out gently) start on one side and pop it out from the pegs that hold it in.

Behind the grill is a plastic door marked and held in with a screw. Remove the the door and you will see the square black cartridge with a handle----it is secured in place by two allen bolts that you back out until they are free. grasp the handle and the lamp will pull out(a new lamp from sony comes with the allen wrench included.

MAKE SURE YOU GET A ORIGINAL SONY LAMP--the generic ones on the internet are no bargain.

I do this here for free so if this helps you give me a vote here.

SOURCE: how do you change the bulb in a Sony KDF-55WF655

if you look right behind the fron grill on the sides of the set you will find two thumb screws, one on each side, you loosen these off and then the front grill comes off , you will have to use a little force on this, when you get the grill off in the middle of the set there is another thumb screw, this opens the lamp door. In the replacement lamp box there should be an allen wrench you use this to loosen the screws holding the lamp in, then you just pull the lamp out and replace it with the new one. Make sure the door is back in place and tightened down before attempting to turn this set on. No dlp set will operate with the door off.

This indicates problems with the image engine. (Lamp does not control the colour). If the TV has not been cleaned recently, excessive dust build up internally may have overheated the image engine. If Sony will not cover it, you might want to consider a new TV.

Testimonial: "thanks, tv is only two years old and don't want to buy another one. Hope it is not the image engine."
