There are several reasons for short lamp life. Inadequate ventilation or clogged cooling fans, a bad lamp driver or lamp ballast (they are the same) and the use of non-original Sony lamps, as the aftermarket replacements are known problem causers. Remember too that the number of times the lamp is turned on and off is a BIG factor in how long the lamp will last.

Head lamp keeps burning out. replaced head lamp at


You either have a bad ground or the bad electrical connection at the light socket is "simulating" a bad ground. This is putting a high resistance on the bulb and it's taking it's toll by burning out the bulb. I would start with a new socket, and CHECK the ground. If you still have the issue, I would run another complete ground wire and not even worry about checking the ground itself. the Stick

Bulbs keep burning out


I would try a genuine sony replacement lamp. There are some reputable sellers on ebay selling them for a couple hundred dollars...Oh also, you say your TV is under warranty?

If it is under Sony's factory 1 year warranty, I would call them direct. If your on some sort of extended warranty plan, through a 3rd party company, tell them you want the genuine sony bulb. Put up a fight, and if that doesnt work, read the fine print for your 3rd party warranty. My extended 3rd party warranty states that if the TV fails 3 times during the extended warranty period, they will replace it with a new one as per their "Lemon" policy.
