Take the panel off of the bottom front of the TV - under the screen almost at the floor - with your hands. unscrew the screw on the caution statement and open the panel. you'll see a handle and another screw to the right of it - loosen that screw (it doesn't come all the way out - or shouldn't, anyway). slowly pull the handle until the lamp comes out - if there is busted glass, clear that out. Slide the other lamp inside the television the same way and power back up.

This should work, however - there are a couple of things to cover:

-If you ordered the lamp from Panasonic it would have come already in the assembly. If you ordered it elsewhere it may just be the bulb. If that's the case, you will need to assemble it yourself of have someone do it for you. You do not want to get oil or fingerprints on the bulb as this will significantly reduce it's lifespan.

-You may want to reset the lamp timer in the television once you get the new lamp inserted. First you have to have the television powered on and no messages or menus on-screen from the TV. Then use the original remote and take it to the television, make sure it's in TV mode and aimed at the IR sensor. Then, press and hold VOL- on the TV itself and PIP on the remote at the same time for 5 to 10 seconds. You should get a message that says "lamp time was reset to 0".

There are instructions as well as diagrams with the replacement lamp (part # TY-LA1000). Generally speaking the lamp is in the lower back.

Please get the correct model number (one posted here has too many numbers--label is on back of set)

GOOGLE THE MODEL NUMBER WITH THE WORD "LAMP" AND YOU WILL FIND (if available) the lamp and several places selling it.

Picture and sound go off every 5 minutes then comes back on

I had this problem (every 30 seconds, not 5 minutes) and ordered a new replacement XL2200 lamp from Sony and that fixed it. By the way, the lamp installs from the front so there's no need to pull your TV out from the wall. Look at you manual, it is accurate in this respect. My lamp only lasted about 15 months. It costs $200 plus about $16 to ship. You can order direct from Sony on line service.
