There are 2 thumb screws at each lower side. Fully loosen those thumb screws then pry the panel out. You will see the lamp covered by a plastic panel. You will see 4 screws covered by gray plastic. Remove the screws and you will see another thumb screw in it. Just loosen the thumb screw also then remove the covered plastic. You will now see the bulb. You need to remove the 2 screws then you can now remove the bulb. Just do backwards to put everything back again.

Sony projection KDF42WE655


If you have one of these models and have an issue where the lamp door or the surrounding area is warping and or cracking, you may qualify for a free repair for these TV's. The optics block failure (blue pattern, stars) is usually caused by high heat as well so it too maybe covered. I have provided the link from the Sony website.

Lamp is dead/ broken in your tv and need to be replaced as lamp light blinks showing that problem.
Lamp replacement procedure is easy and written in user manual.
Buy Sony original lamp for good picture quality and replace it as mentioned in user manual.

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!

Sony 42'' kdf42we655 no picture , lamp light flashing


If the lamp light is flashing, yes you need a new lamp. Be sure to buy an original Sony lamp as the replacement lamps are garbage and are not worth the discount. Please rate this solution. Thanks!

Sony KDF-42WE655, lamp burrning out and melting.


I am having the same problem with my kdf42we655 model. except I also have the blue/pink blobs all over the screen. Sony came last week to evaluate and were pointing to the amount of dust in the set... What a crock... Dont know what theylle do yet but I am ready to get a lawyer and fight this. They know there is a problem and dont want to back it up... Ill never buy Sony again.. And btw. if your buying a new tv and you a sony fan,. look at samsung.. They are building the new lcd screens for Sony...At least Samsung stand behind there product and costs a lot less than paying for the Sony name..
