SOURCE: 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.

I need to replace my 42 in Sony WEGA HDTV Projection lamp KDF-42E2000


Lamp code XL-2400 is Sony part number F93087500 and it is available on http://www.partstore.com/. You may also decide to purchase the less expensive Philips Lighting lamp part number F93087500RL. Either will work for your television set.

Bulb keeps burning out


There are several reasons for short lamp life. Inadequate ventilation or clogged cooling fans, a bad lamp driver or lamp ballast (they are the same) and the use of non-original Sony lamps, as the aftermarket replacements are known problem causers. Remember too that the number of times the lamp is turned on and off is a BIG factor in how long the lamp will last.
