    Just got this Tv...I just noticed that the replacement lamp indicator lighted up and the tv wouldn't turn on. However I tried turning the tv on again after 2 minutes and the tv came on. It's been less than a month since I got the Tv.

    My questions are:

    1) Should I notify Best Buy (who I purchased from) to replace the lamp?

    2) Should I not worry about it?

    Please let me know what you guys think. Thanks

    Sounds like you need to look in the troubleshooting guide of your owner's manual[​IMG]

    The problem isn't that simple. The Tv now seems to be working fine. I'm just worried if it was just a glitch that the lamp came on that one time. Or whether it was a warning ahead of time before the lamp actually goes out.

    Has this happened to anyone who owns this TV (WEGA KF-50WE610)?

    This had been an ongoing problem with these sets but last I read it has been remedied by replacing the lamp. Check out the long and many threads at www.avsforum.com on this.

    Call Best Buy immediately and demand a replacement. This is a big problem with the tv you have. I just returned mine and ended up getting a Sony 34"XBR910 instead. I'm much happier not having worry about light bulb issues and the picture quality is better on the XBR set.
