Hi steelerector

It is really easy to do , you will normally get a little manual on how to do this with the replacement lamp.

Provided that the lamp is a original Sony lamp.

If not , then just unscrew the lamp door at the bottom , take out the two screws that fastens the lamp to the Projector's inside , replace the lamp and screw it back in and then put back the lamp door.

Then just remember to reset the lamp timer.

I have a 50"-52" sony "flat screen" tube tvwas working perfect till this morning turned it on to have the screen go Black (with sound) and then no sound or picture with the lamp light flashing... how...

Sounds like your television needs to have the lamp replaced. The XL5300 lamp is part number F-9308-870-0 and retails for $299. You can find generic lamps for sale on the internet, but they generally don't last as long as the Sony original. Encompass has that part listed in stock and their phone number is (800) 638-3328. Your owners manual should explain how to replace it, but if you want to hire a technician to come to your house and install it, the labor should be minimal and take 5-10 minutes.

I have a 52 inch sony tv and it says projection lamp is near end what do i need to do?

Buy a lamp and sit on it. Meaning, you don't need to put it in until your old lamp goes. But, it will be handy to have it around for when it finally goes into the lamp graveyard.

Now, couple of things:

* If you don't notice a dimishing of brightness in your set, or your set's not doing the other things bad lamps do (like randomly shutting off your set), you can bypass the lamp reminder message on most Sony sets (I'll tell you how in a second).

* Even if you don't notice a loss of brightness, you most likely have lost a good amount of brightness and your eyes have grown accustomed to it.

How to bypass the Lamp Reminder message:
(works on some sets, not all)

OK, so you have got your new lamp, but you want to squeeze the life out of your old lamp as much as possible. Or, your repair guy came out and put a new bulb in and two days later that message pops up.

Pick up your handy Sony remote.

* Press Menu (or WEGA Gate, on some models)
* Navigate to the SETUP tab (usually by pressing the down arrow; it's usually the last option)
* Press Enter
* Use your down arrow to go to the last option on the screen, and then keep going.
* Find the option that says "Lamp Replacement"
* Press Enter
* Press Yes


What we've done is reset the Lamp Timer. You will want to not forget that you did this, because you will forget that you are going to need a new lamp. So, buy the lamp first before you procastinate.

And, when you install the new lamp, wash, rinse and repeat.

    Lamp cover melting

    Open the back case (about 10 screws) and clean the lamp cooling fan. This is NOT the one you can see from the outside. It is located in a horizontal position above the lamp area from the rear. A DRY toothbrush can be used to brush out the dust. Keep a vacuum nozzle next to it while cleaning so the dust does not go inside. Some say to use compressed air to blow out the dust, but vacuuming it keeps better control and can prevent unwanted dust from moving down into the optics.

    I learned this the hard way when replacement lamp burnt out in one week. I thought the cooling fan that you can see from the outside (it actually is the exhaust fan) was the only fan. The lamp cooling fan sucks in cool air and puts it right down onto the lamp.

    Test the fans by turning on unit without lamp installed (the fans will power on for a short period of time and you can see them function to verify airflow). Clean this fan once a year as the dust will be back.

    Our lamp does not turn off

    This is a defect that Sony has "kind of" recognized with an extended warranty, till 2010. I consider it a fire hazard and feel strongly that Sony is underestimating it. They are also NOT fully supporting the warranty and seek to charge me for repairing the problem, at the minimum an "installation fee" for the new bulb. BS. I am writing to the CPSC and Consumers, and taking them to court. Good luck!
