Yes. the manual describes exactly how to do it. However, if you don't have it, pull off the bottom front cover...that comes up with one thumbscrew on the right and one on the left. Once the panel is off, you will need an allen wrench....in the center, there is another thumbscrew that allows you to remove a horizontal plate. Make sure the TV is off when you do this....also make sure that you've allowed the tv to cool down before doing this. Once the horizontal plate is off the front cover to the lamp comes off. Use the allen wrench to undo the screw on the left and the lamp pulls straight out. Replace it the exact opposite way. It took me about 15 minutes. I found the lamp online for about $150 (shipping included).

Sorry friend, but the only sure thing is that you're getting a lamp driver error. Odds are you're either having an issue with the ballast or your power supply can't supply the voltage needed. If you're good with electronics you can check the voltages on the power supply and try to rule that out. Otherwise you should take the set in for repair. Good luck.

Is lamp difficult to install


Hi Carrie,

The lamp is not too difficult to replace and doesn't even require the removal of the back of the TV. It is clearly described in the operating manual on page 76. You can get this here if you don't have one: http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-documents.pl?mdl=KDFE55A20

Be sure not to touch the lamp glass with your fingers or it won't last very long.
Regards,
Phil

Your problem is your thermal fuse.It is located around the bottom of the compartment that houses the lamp. You will have to remove the lamp and take the bottom back panel off. Then you will have to remove the fan. I ordered the thermal fuse so I would know what I was looking for when I started to replace it. If you take your time and are patient enough you can fix it yourself. I fixed mine and it's working great.GOOD LUCK!!!
