    I double checked model number HLS4288W and afraid, its incorrect. HLS4266W found correct model.

    can you still help me get left side
    screw out of housing? it seems to be stuck

    There are two screws that hold lamp housing tight, one is locating near pull handle and other is in cross direction corner.
    Can you post here a picture of that screw that is causing problem?

  • Shahid Electronics
    Shahid Electronics Apr 25, 2010

    Ah, I thought you are replacing bulb in lamp housing.
    So the old lamp is still inside tv and need to be pulled out, right?
    That screw wont came off, it will get loose enough and will turn freely, then pull old lamp with little force from lamp housing of tv because lamp connector is also tight with ballast connector inside lamp housing and need little force to detach.

  • Shahid Electronics
    Shahid Electronics Apr 25, 2010

    Yes, we are on same page, as I said, that screw is to keep tight lamp in tv lamp housing.
    Please put any other screws back on lamp assembly and just unscrew that is mentioned, that screw wont come out, give it few CCW turns to loose it then pull complete lamp from tv for further work.

    that is the exact screw that just turns CCW over and over and does not
    loosen what can I do to get the screw out? thanks

    Hold lamp handle and pull it slowly while turning screw. In my opinion, screw got free in its place and requires up lift to get it out from its place.

I have a Sony model KDF-50WE665. Made a pop and the picture went out. I think it's been slow to come on now for a couple of weeks, so it's probably the bulb. Can you tell me: 1) Where can I buy...

The lamp you need is Sony XL-2100U ($78 at Amazon) or XL-2100 ($84 at Amazon).

Turn off the TV and wait a few minutes before you unplug it (let the cooling fan run). Then wait at least another 30 minutes before replacing the lamp. There are two screws on the rear panel (left and right sides near the top left of center of the small panels on the on the ends). Loosen the screws and then pull off the front panel (below the screen). The front panel has to be pulled off in stages - start at the right side and pull forward and down, then the left - pull forward and down and then the middle - pull forward and up. Loosen the screw on the lamp cover with a coin and remove the cover. Loosen the two screws that hold the lamp (use an allan wrench) and remove the lamp by pulling it straight out. Slide in your new lamp (handle with care - use a glove to avoid any oil from your skin getting on the bulb). Tighten the two screws. Then replace the lamp cover and tighten the screw. (Make sure that the screw goes into the unit straight - otherwise the safety lock may keep the TV off.) Reattach the front cover and then tighten the back panel screws. Put the old lamp in a box after it has cooled completely for disposal.

Pictures are available in the User manual here: . The appropriate section starts at page 16.

I hope this helps.

How do you remove the head lamp assembly on a 1993

1. Make sure headlamp is off and open hood.
2. Taurus model years 1990-1999: you must remove the whole headlamp to replace the bulb. Not a horrible task. Just annoying.
3. Facing the driver's side headlamp, and looking at the headlamp itself, at clock positions 8, 11 and 1 are the headlight housing screws. They all look the same. Using a 10mm socket wrench, remove these 3 screws and set them aside.
4. Just to the right of the "11 o'clock" housing screw is a bolt (same hexagonal 10mm sized top as the housing screws). This just needs a few turns to loosen it.
5. Gently pull the whole headlight forward. Now you can get at the bulb.
6. Disconnect the electrical connector from the bulb. Now the headlamp is free to work with. Remove the bulb, replace with a new bulb, make sure the bulb housing cylinder is in place and reconnect the electical.
7. Place headlamp back into position. Line up screw holes. Tighten the bolt. Replace housing screws and tighten.
8. Passenger side headlamp is mirror image of driver's side. Screws at 11, 1 and 4 o'clock positions. Bolt should be to the left of the "1 o'clock" housing screw.

Chage lamp on Pt-43lc14-K

On the front, under the screen there is a large plastic cover. The far right side of the cover has the black decals "HDTV 1080i" and "VIVA bb3 sound" on it. There aren't any screws holding it on, just pressure snaps. Pull the sides of it off gently and the three or so foot long panel will come loose. You'll see a black plastic panel now with two doors, one in the middle and one on the left of the middle door. The one on the left has a white lamp warning label decal and a black screw holding it in place. Remove the screw and take off the door. Inside is the lamp housing. Some models have a a screw on the right side of the black plastic housing, holding it in place. Take out that screw and pull the housing directly out toward you. You now have the lamp housing. If you are replacing it with a new lamp and housing just push the new on into place and reassemble, you're all done. If you are replacing just the lamp, you have a little more disasembling to do. But its not hard. If you need further help, post a comment and I'll send pictures. Good Luck.

Where is the lamp housing unit & how do I remove it?

The lamp is in the front of the TV. Pop off the gray cover, about the width of the screen, located just left of the power button. You will then see a bunch of warning labels on the left. Unscrew the one screw that is there and take that piece off. There's your lamp. Unscrew the screw on the right of the lamp and the lamp will slide out.
