Fisrt remove the front cover assembly, if you go to the back of the set on the sides you will see one plastic knob on each side ,you have to loose those..then you have to pull out the whole piece from side to side(if never done it may sound like if its braking) there are three clips holding itl,once its out you will see the lamp cover on the center part, one plastic knob also,once removed you will see the back of the lamp. reverse the process in you will be fine.

It overheats and pops the Xl-2100u lamp?


by pops? do you mean it explode? how many lamps? it could be the fan that supposed to be ventilating the lamp or it could be the the ballast, why the ballast because the ballast regulates the voltage in order the keep the lamp on, for ignition it sends around 15,000 volts after that it regulates the votage to a small amount of voltage around 5,000 so it could be sending the big amount of voltage all the time never regulates that or it could be regulating and then sending another big amount of voltage over and over until the lamp doesnt handle those changes.

I have a sony wega 46 inch tv model number: KDF42WE655 the screen went black and the red light came on where it says "lamp" on front of tv Does this mean I just need to replace the lamp?


If your tv is around 2-4 yrs or used 6000-8000 hrs,never replaced the lamp before it could be time to replace it.The other most common failure is the board that powers the lamp,which is called the ballast.When its bad it will make a clicking sound or like wanting to turn on.But pretty much it does sound like the lamp.your part # will be xl-2100 and you can find it here: http://www.discount-merchant.com/Sony-XL-2100U-TV-Lamp-p/sony_xl-2100u_replacement_lamp.htm and here's the instructions to replace it: http://guides.fixyourdlp.com/sony/XL-2100U.php Have a blessed one!

My tv turns on and off. It will stay on for about 3 min and then turn off. What is the problem??


Hi,
If its Sony KDF-50WE655 TV then its weak lamp symptoms like TV turns off and on automatically and work for 3 minutes as you mentioned.
How old is this TV and did you replaced lamp recently?
Replace its lamp that is weak in result and causing TV off and on itself.
Lamp replacement procedure is written in user manual, very easy, click Sony Support to download copy, if required.
Please buy Sony original lamp for TV safety that is available in Sony Accessories Store under following part number for $200
A1606034B... LAMP BLOCK XL-2100U
If model number is different, let me know.
Thanks.
