Replacing bulb in Sony KDF-50WE655

03-08-2008, 07:03 PM
I own a Sony KDF-50WE655 and have recently noticed "waves" moving across my screen. It is not real noticeable right now, but I was wondering if this is the behaviour you see towards the end of a bulb's life? I always thought the bulb would just go out one day.

If I do need a new bulb, any thoughts on were to purchase a new one?

Either order from Sony direct, or save money and find a retailer online.
But if you buy from a 3rd party make sure it is a Sony lamp and the same part number. Not some equivalent.
If this is your first bulb you will likely be amazed how much brighter the picture will be. I would calibrate your display with Avia, etc.

I can't speak to the 'waves' you are talking about though, to be honest.
