Need instructons for changing Sony SXRD XL5300 lamp.
I have the Lamp and the TV out with the side cover off to expose the
screw that hold the round door over the lamp. I heard that
you must be careful with this door and I don't have the instruction manuel.
I need the instructions or help changing the bulb.
Sony SXRD XBR 73'

Hi, Sony original lamp is longer lasting and supplied as per standard where as bulb only does not work like original lamp, many times it will be required to replace again after couple of months. My opinion is to go for Sony original lamp that is no doubt bit high priced item but works great for years. Hope these info will help you. Thanks.
Sounds like your television needs to have the lamp replaced. The XL5300 lamp is part number F-9308-870-0 and retails for $299. You can find generic lamps for sale on the internet, but they generally don't last as long as the Sony original. Encompass has that part listed in stock and their phone number is (800) 638-3328. Your owners manual should explain how to replace it, but if you want to hire a technician to come to your house and install it, the labor should be minimal and take 5-10 minutes.
Same thing happened on mine, you need to replace the bulb, on our TV I have 2 kids so the TV was always on but lasted 2 and a half years which impressed the warranty people. From what I have heard the average life is about 2 years. I have the same SXRD TV.
