Sony projection television lamp replacement...

I have a Sony projection television that has the message "Lamp is nearing end of life, please replace." This message has been appearing for the last month.
Two questions:

How long do I have before this lamp dies? I am already seeing a little distorted color on the top of tv, nothing bad but I can see it coming.

Do I need to replace the full assembly or just the lamp. When I went to eBay to purchase, I noticed that the assembly had the housing as well as the lamp. Then I seen just the lamp. Any special reason why I would need the housing and lamp?

More info:

The television is two years old and runs great, no other problems.

    there is a lamp counter on the set,


    1. Press "Display" on the remote, followed by the 5 button, then the sound up key, and "Power On." Do this while the TV is in Standby mode.




    2. Step 2

      Then press "Jump" 3 times to enter the DE Service menu. The TV screen will display the total lamp time hours.




    3. Step 3

      Reset the lamp time by pressing channel 3, then mute, then enter. This will put your lamp counter back to 0.this might tell how long it's got left

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.

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.
