Most Sony DLP lamps are located in the front behind the control panel. There are some oversized thumb screws on the back right and left edges with a flathead slot in them. Once unscrewed, the front panel will pop off. (sometimes you have to pull pretty hard) once in...there will be a couple more screws and the lamp has a handle to pull it right out.

Stony LCD 2007 goes off and screen comes on saying it needs projection lamp. Is this something I can replace myself ?

Yes, the lamps are made to be for most models replaceable by the owner.

Most the lamp is located up front behind the cover below the screen (Model number?) and you remove a door, back out two (usually Allen bolts) and the whole cartridge with lamp pulls out (has a handle).

To get a idea of lamp price Google the model number with "lamp".

You Tube has video instructions for replacing the lamp for most models---Get a original Sony replacement and not a generic one.

Bulbs are sold either loose or the whole thing with the cartridge--get the cartridge as easy to replace.

AsI have a sony kds55a2020 tv, I recently replaced the lamp because the lamp light was on. after I replaced the lamp, the tv power blinks 4 times and never comes on. what else can it be?

Check is the lamp is properly installed or not. If the tv was at working condition before replacing the lamp then then the new lamp is not properly installed. Check one more time. If you can then just remove the new lamp and insert it again. Make sure that the lamp is properly attached. And then check.
