I need some advice on replacement blubs for my kdsr60 XBR1

by wlreiter / October 23, 2012 5:52 AM PDT

I recently bought a non-Sony XL5100 replacement blub from Amazon thinking that all blubs are alike; I still had a working Sony blub as my spare. When I installed the non-Sony blub, the picture began to flicker making it unwatchable. Re-installing the working Sony blub immediately solved the flickering problem. Amazon replaced their blub, but the flickering returned. Now they are saying that the ballast board/power supply is not sending sufficient power to the new lamp, thus causing the flicker. This sounds fishy. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Sadly it can be true.

But why not return it and get the Sony bulb? Or just return it and wait for this bulb to fail?
