Re: bulb went out
This maybe a McGuyver thing. Last thing you want to do is block the air flow to cool down your TV set. I would blow out all the dust, get a HEPA filter for house ventilation, get a computer cooling fan. Cut and put the filter in front of the fan, make the fan blow in to the TV vent in the back, that way it blows clean air in and keeps dirty air out. I hope that's one good idea.

screen driver fault probably will need to be changed its on the back of the screen they can go at any time. replace and on the 2 big black chips put some heat sink paste on them help make them last longer and not over heat so quickly. ..
It looks as if you have to return it personally, and have them fix it. I saw nothing on the HP ID5220 DLP TV in the ballast lists. Sorry, man. Wish I could be of more help. Maybe someone else has a better site, or connections, that can help you. Your best bet is to get professional help with someone, like the company that manufactures the hardware.
Not the light engine. But it could be the power supply. I've seen a few than pass "dirt" power to the ballast and damage it. Have a peek at the ballast, there's a big 47uf, 450v capacitor on it. If it is swollen, it's a dead give away. You need both. I hope this was helpful.
The problem with this is it's not just glass -Liquid Crystal Display- it's a matrix of liquid crystal cells, the screen also has like individual pixel color filters as well all this placed between two sheets of polaroid coated glass. It isn;t just so easy as to replace it like a regulare tv screen. As with anything it could be repaired, I have read about, but cannot suggest anyone particular place because the repair involves putting material into the cracks then laser etching the grid back in. So if you can find someone who does that. Or ask you dealer about it. Sorry I could not give you a better solution.
The reason this happens the most is because of the lamp being weak. I have not seen anything else cause this problem. You can varify this by turning the set off and wait until it shuts down totally.
with the Sony remote, press the display button, the #5 button,
volume down button, then power button. This puts you into the the factory error code mode. If you see the lamp code with multiple errors and no other errors shown, the lamp is the problem.
Most of Sonys lamps have a aprox life of 3000 hrs. Some last longer and some shorter.
I hope this helps,
I've seen this or something similar to this problem on an old lcd screen. The bulb haden't burned out but the system was no longer getting proper 5 volts to the processor chip that processed the image. I ended up desoldering the voltage regulator and soldering a new regulator in it's place it was one with the same amperage so I put a heatsink on it to reduce the chance of another failure.
Yes most certainly tv's should last longer than a year. What i would suggest is testing your outlet too see if it is putting out and test the tv in another room to see if thats that problem. If you still are having difficulties please post again.
Please post what you do and how you did it
I look forward to your posts
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.
