Actually your lamp is located toward the front of your tv.

Take the front cover off of the tv. There are 2 knobs on the back of the tv (one on each side) that you have to unscrew and then you can pop the front panel off. Now you can take the lamp out using a metric allen wrench on 2 bolts. When the lamp is broken it's generally shattered or atleast the long middle section is detached from the lamp. Hope this helps

How do i take the face off to replace the bulb


Hello SFIX67, sorry to here about your problem. You do not take the front off of the TV in order to replace the lamp. The lamp is located on the back of the TV in a little compartment. If you have not already purchased the replacement lamp the part number is Sony XL-5200 and can be purchase from Sony at www.sonystyle.com/tv/
  1. First you want to turn off the TV and wait for it to cool down
  2. You want to located the lamp door on the back of the TV
  3. Open the lamp door and remove the lamp assembly it is plug into a connector take the conector apart
  4. Remove the lamp
  5. Install the new lamp be sure not to touch with bare hands as finger oil can make it go right back out
  6. Reinstall the plug
  7. Insert the lamp assembly back in the TV
  8. Close the door
  9. Plug the TV back in and injoy
While you are back there you may want to wipe, **** or blow all the dust and grime off the back of the TV this will help it stay cool and the lamp to last longer.

You may also want to contact a local recycling agency about the blown lamp as it contains mercury and is not good for the environment.

Thank you for allowing me to assist you in your endeavor and hope to be able to help with any future endeavors you may have.

Power light blinks three times. tv does not come on


Hi,
If you replace lamp in tv then make sure lamp cover has been installed correctly on its place.
Lamp cover is first thing that you removed from tv to replace lamp.
Let me know tv model number that would be written on back of tv if lamp was not replaced.
Thanks.

My TV turned off after a power surge, now a red light over "lamp" is constantly on. When we push the reset button, we can hear sound and then the tv turns itself off after a minute


If the Lamp light is steady, the lamp has failed and must be replaced. The TV will not work until the lamp is replaced (and the lamp cover is properly attached). Call (800) 553-7278 to get a replacement lamp from the manufacturer. Order lamp part number 915P028010. Once you have the replacement lamp, make sure that the TV is off for at least 30 minutes before replacing. Avoid touching the lamp glass - it will shorten the lamp life. Unplug the TV and use a Phillips screw driver to remove the lamp cover from the back of the TV (2 screws hold it on the right hand side) . Loosen the two screws that hold the lamp cartridge (one on the bottom left corner and one of the top right corner). These screws will not come completely out. Grasp the handle and pull the lamp cartridge out straight towards you. Place the new lamp cartridge completely into the opening then tighten the two screws that hold the cartridge. Replace the cover and screw it back into place.

If the lamp cartridge or cover are not properly secured, the TV will not come on. (There is a safety interlock).

I hope this helps.

(the lamp should last at least a year; if not, contact the manufacturer for a warranty repair.)

New lamp is placed in tv, but tv won't come on. Light in front of power button is blinking green, then blinks red. Not sure what the problem is


One question, why you decided to replace lamp in tv? Did tv showed red lamp light blinking?
Suggestion, make sure lamp cover has been placed back in its position after lamp replacement, lamp cover is first thing that you removed from tv cabinet to take out lamp.

If lamp light is lit that means lamp inside tv is dead/ broken and need to be replaced.
Replace lamp in tv to get it back in business and usually lamp replacement procedure is easy and written in related user manual.
