    re: the processor monitors fans, nice little bit of info...

    This is the third lamp for this set, I always use bare bulb replacement into the original housing, although I admit it feels like it's getting a bit brittle from the heat.

    Nothing different this time around.

    When the lamp failed the fans did run, now there is no fan noise, nor air flow, although the pix is back.

    I'll pull the bits and check again.

This model monitors the fans, should one not work the set should not even turn the lamp on, leaving only the timer LED flashing. Recheck your work but you have had other problems to begin with. Be sure the covers are reinstalled properly. Are you getting a Temp LED that is lighting? If so then the Temp sensor needs to be replaced.

Premature Lamp Blow

Have you been turning off this set from some OTHER power source, such as a cable box ? The set MUST have constant power for at least 3 minutes after turn off for the bulb to cool down. Also, do NOT use a generic "bargain bulb" to replace--either an original or a phillips one do NOT use an Osram "neolux" lamp, Mits. do NOT like them !!

Hi, your part # will be 915p020010. The original maker is Osram which last around 4000 hrs. You can get the Philips which last 6000-8000 hrs with a superior picture quality,only if you have the housing that has a white cart board covering the back of the lamp.If your housing is complete plastic you will have to get the original Osram. Here's the link where I found it:

Horrible burning smell from lamp

If you ordered it directly from sony then i would be concerned and contact the to have it replaced under warranty. If you did not get it directly from sony I would expect it is a rebuilt lamp or you purchased just the lamp part instead of the whole cartridge and installed it into the carttridge yourself. The lamp is designed to be replaced as a cartridge . The smell is probly a lamp that is burning the wires on the back side of the lamp because it is incorrectly inserted and the wires are touching the glass. Just a couple times i have seen a lamp that will smell slightly as the plastic and insulation heats up for the first time.But it only smells a little for like a day.

Replacement lamp not bright

as i previously posted, my picture was dim, muddy looking after replacing lamp with osram lamp. i fixed mine by taking the screen off and cleaning the small mirror. it had a thick layer of dust on it, cleaned with a microfiber cloth. no water, no glass cleaners. i also used a very fine new small paint brush and dusted the projector lens which also had a dust film. brightness, contrast and clarity returned!

Mitsubishi wd 52725 lamp troubles

You can use Mitsubishi 915p020010 or Osram E023. Remove the front and clean the lense using only a clean microfiber cloth. dirty lense main cause of dark picture. The lamp could be incorrect wattage.

A-1606-034-B is correct. Make sure you are buying a Sony Original replacement though. A lot of knock-offs are not correct.
