I bought a new replacement lamp (XL-2100U) and changed out the old bulb. Now when I turn on the TV the picture comes on and stays on for a few minutes and the bulb goes out. It repeats this for about 15 -20 minutes and then the bulb stays on and the TV is fine for the evening. Any suggestions about what may be happening and how to fix it?
I recently had a similar problem after replacing my lamp the set would work for 22 mins then go into standby for 30 sec then come back on, then repeats, I decided to experiment with the lamp housing, I removed the new lamp, unscrewed the top of the lamp that holds the actual bulb then switched out the main housing (bottom part) with the original housing, that seemingly has corrected my problem, you may want to try if the replacement lamp did not come from Sony...good luck

Some of the ICs on the power supply block are damaged. This can possibly due to high voltage or defective IC. What you can do now is to get a new PS block. If you can get me the part number i can help you find it..

The lamp you received is correct. I own a lamp replacement company. It may of been pakaged incorrectly or maybe you received just the bulb and not the housing or vice versa (housing included). First, unless housing is damaged NEVER buy a new one...just the bulb will do. Housings are the biggest markup on replacement lamps. They are manufactired at a low cost and usually retailers drive up the lamp price because they include an uneeded housing. The bulb itself (XL-2100U) should be a round bulb. Check out my listing and compare this to what you received: http://rearprojectionlamps.com/2000u-lamp-p-2277.html
Tried to turn it on? Sounds like you need to replace the lamp. However, I got an additional week out of my unit. Although poorly dimmed and the red Lamp light blinked constantly for that one week, at least it gave me enough warning to seek out a replacement. But so long as you're not mistaking the Power/Standby or Timer light for the Lamp light then I would have to agree with you.
