The lower front panel has to be removed first. After that is removed there is a door almost in the center of the TV which has to be removed then the lamp is behind that. If you need instructions you can download the owners manual at the Sony website. Please take a few moments to rate my answer. Thank you

How to replace bulb?

Either under the front long cover--or on the left side. Most HIt LCD projos use a P22H 120 watt bulb, get a phillips bulb and you will be happy. Ebay sells these all over the place.

How to change a projection blub

To chage the bulb in a projection tV do the following

1. Turn off the television. Let it sit for 5 minutes.

2. Unplug the television from the power socket. Let it sit for 30 minutes to 1 hour.

3. Unscrew and open the door that covers the projection bulb. You will usually find this door near the outlet wire. It may have up to four screws holding it in place, usually Phillips-head screws.

4. Pull out the bulb. There should be a plastic handle that you can gently pull out to remove the bulb.

5. Remove the new lamp from its packaging without touching the glass of the bulb.

6. Line up the groove on the new bulb with the groove on the bulb housing in the television.

7. Gently push in the bulb until you hear a click.
8. Screw the projection door cover back into place, then plug in the television

I think a bulb is out how would you know?

Look into lamp, you'll see a glass cylinder with a bulb at the bottom. White or black buildup inside means bad bulb. Also the spherical bulb can deform by heat - bad bulb as well.
When you replace a Panasonic bulb you must reset the lamp timer.

You would have to remove the back of the television board and there should be a black plastic piece that covers and protects the bulb inside the television. I would recommend that if you are not a technician please have an experienced person replace your bulb.

Bulb replacement

Ok, you can buy the bulb separately and it will save you money. I will have to warn that , installing this bare bulb will be tricky and you can not touch this bulb with your bare hands. it will damage it. Other than that, it is possible to purchase the bare bulb alone. i will post a link to your replacement bulb without the housing below.


Please rate and have a great weekend:)
