I just did this myself. I'm a novice but it wasn't that hard. Your choices are to purchase a complete unit including the casing from a Sony repair shop for around $250, or just replace the lamp.

I just replaced the lamp and saved $130.

I just removed the screws from the side of the casing that protect the lamp. I disconnected the contact points and then popped open the housing.

Remove the screws and the nut that attach to the lamp. Wear gloves when you handle the new lamp so you don't shorten the lifespan of the bulb.

re-attach all the screws and slide it back in.

It took me the longest to have line up the contact points when sliding it back into the TV. Make sure all the connections are snug and keep at it. Don't give up! I'll admit I was tempted!

Says lamp problems


Without more information it is going to be hard to help you. I assume you mean the TV has a warning of lamp problems. Means you need to replace the lamp. Go to www.partstore.com and put in your sets information. You should be able to find the lamp you need. Get it. Your owners manual should tell you how to replace or at least where the lamp housing is. Open the housing, remove the old lamp, install the new lamp, close properly and you should be good to go. Let me know how it works out.

    Is your TV still under warranty? If it is, then you should send it back and let them fix it. If you do it yourself, you might void the warranty.

    Sony kdf-60xs955, rear projection tv


    There is a Thermal fuse under the lamp housing that opens up and Sony has a New style fuse to replace it with, it opens up one of the p/s lines to set code 6, replace with new thermal fuse and test. You will want a Skilled Professional to replace this fuse as it does require some dissassembly and removal of light engine to remove fuse from under lamp housing to put new one on side of lamp housing.
