You can do it!! Unplug the tv.If you look on the side of the set you will find a small door, open it. You should see the bulb, you can order a replacment from www.purelandsupply.com/Sony-DLP-TV-Lamps.html all you will need is your model #, it will come with step by step directions for replacment, good luck
This will be an easy fix, Trust me

SOURCE: Projection lamp nearing end of life replace lamp still coming on

Along with the instructions for the lamp installation, you should have revceived instructions on how to reset the lamp counter. If not, this operation is listed in the owner's manual. If you can not locate that manual, please confirm your model number and I will post the instructions. Since the counter has not been reset, the TV will continue to show the "error" message.

SOURCE: sony projection lamp is nearing end of life

Here is a link to a website that sells the replacement lamp for $99 dollars. http://electrified.com/Catalog/Items/?CampaignID=Dealtime&ItemID=36414

There might be a local store in your area that carries replacement lamps but probably will not have yours in stock and would have to order it. After you replace the lamp you will need to reset the lamp timer for your TV using the lamp replacement option on the TV general settings menu.
