If you don't already have a new lamp, you can buy it at with or without the housing. Look for a small door on the side or the back of the TV, some TVs you actually have to remove the front cover to replace the lamp.

Good luck.

Installed new lamp but her static sounds wd-73733 and still no picture

I would venture to guess the bulb figment is your issue and the electrical sound is most likely arching (very bad). The cheap replacements won't last. I bought a sylvania build and matched the model number with the one from inside the old bulb housing. Changing out the bulb from the casing is really easy so just return the one you bought and buy the corresponding bul without the case.

Check the contacts from the bulb case and eventually clean them with some technical alchool. Also check if the bulb is fitting properly. If you have a ohm measure device, try to check for continuity with the bulb seated inside the case, at the case terminals, with camera powered off. Cheers (PS - if you touched the bulb with naked hands, it is very possible you damaged it because the bulb is very senzitive to any electrostatic discharges)

We bought a new replacement lamp XL2200U for our Sony 60" KDFE60A20 TV, but we need to know how to install it...Please help We removed the old lamp, bulb and casing together, and I ordered the replacement...

Yes, lamp installation procedure is written in user manual of TV and click Sony Support to download user manual copy if required. Lamp replacement is simple process, take out old lamp and slid in new lamp.
Please buy Sony original lamp for TV safety.

2008 GM Melted ground wire/headlight plug - why ?

On your bulb. It should be labeled DOT 12V and then have something like 45W,50W, 55W or whatever wattage your bulb is. If it doesn't, then the bulb is not a proper bulb. I've seen a lot of people installing aftermarket bulbs that burn the wiring and harness because the bulbs draw much more power than the wires are designed (I've seen some install 100W bulbs for 50W harnesses)

If the car was purchased new and the bulbs are the original bulbs, then I don't believe they would. In that case, I would be lead to believe it is an issue with the harness, which could cost upwards of $100. You could splice in a new wire (14GA and better recommended). I don't think headlights are covered under warranty, but you could give it a shot and see what they say.

You need a new bulb. It's easy to install. Remove the lower panel. Remove the 2 screws that hold the buld casing. Remove the bulb and replace with a new one. Replace the screws then the lower panel.

This will save you about $300 in so called labor.

How do I change a headlight on a Suzuki Burgman 400 ?

you reach under the front of the scooter between the headlight and the fender. find the wire that goes to the connector of the headlight. it is directly behind the headlight. unplug the connector, pull the plug off the headlight. remove the rubber cover/boot off the back of the headlight. this is now the tricky part. there is a clip that needs to be unhooked and moved out of the way. remember how you unhook it because you will have to rehook it when you install the new bulb. this hook is a stiff wire with a loop on one end. push on the loop and move it to one side and it will come off the back of the bulb. the clip is attached and will not come off. you should use gloves to remove the bulb. the oils on your hands are not good for the bulb. use glove on removing just in case the bulb is good and you need to use it again. use gloves to install the new bulb. there is only one way to install the new bulb. there are tabs the extend out from the base of the bulb. you can kneel in front and reach your hand under to install the new bulb while you watch the insertion through the glass. rotate the bulb until you feel the detent that allows the bulb to fit into position. both bulbs have the tabs in the same location, ie. the detent tab is about at the 8 oclock position. replace the clip (insure that it clips on to hold the base), the boot and the connector.

You need to remove the front panel of the TV. If you look at the picture above, this panel is the light gray piece on the bottom of the tv. It is attached with plactic connectors. Just poo it off and then you will see a metal panel with some screws. remove the panel and then you will see the light buld casing. Pull it out and replace it with the new light bulb casing. If you did not purchase a new light bulb casing and bought just the bulb, you will need to take the casing apart and replace the bulb. Make sure to mark the wires so you will know where they should be connect to the new bulb.

Inside refrigerator light

did you try replacing the bulb? The bulb could have been bad from the beginning, and if the door was never opened before being installed in your home, that would be the simplest answer.
