After a hectic holiday season into the new year, I splurged on a new TV (LG C8 OLED 55", still as big as I can hang onto in my current space). I donated the A3000 to some local place that would pick it up. I'm not 100% sure if they'll end up recycling it or find a home for it. Kind of an unceremonious goodbye now that I think about it.

Anyway, I have 2 extra bulbs for the KDS-50A3000 if anyone wants them. The place that picked up the TV didn't take the bulbs. Just PM me if you want them.
Hi, bought a used kds-60a3000. Do you still have the extra bulbs? Im interested. Thank you.

Hello, I actually do have the bulbs but they're for the KDS-50A3000, which may use different bulbs than the 60A3000. I'd confirm that they would work (at the very least it'd be dimmer?) with the 60" first.

Hi, mild. Our last bulb just burnt out today after 3 years. I'd love to get a replacement from you. I could definitely pay shipping (zip 18202 in Pennsylvania). If Jamie wants it, maybe you could send one to each of us. But I'd be happy to take both if he doesn't. I can't send PMs yet because my post count is under 15 but if you reply I'll tell you how to contact me. Thanks.

The KDS-50A3000, KDS-55A3000, and KDS-60A3000 all use the Sony XL-5200. See page 44 of the Operating Instructions linked here.

Still interested with the lamp, thanks for the reply!

I have 2, so I can send one to bot of you if that works. They're not the official lamps, but I think I got them from an Amazon seller. They were what I was using with my 50A3000. They should work, but of course I can't guarantee that they will.

That's great. I don't think you can buy the "real" ones anymore, so it kind of depends on paying more to get one that lasts longer. But for free or the cost of shipping, that's not an issue. If you can contact me, my e-mail is the same as my username here at Yahoo. Thanks!
