Introducing the Sony LCD Projection TV
Replacing the Lamp
The projection lamp, which illuminates the picture, has a limited life.
If the screen becomes dark, the color looks unusual, or the LAMP indicator
on the front of the LCD projection TV flashes, it is time to replace the lamp
with a new one (not supplied).
Electric appliances can cause fire or high temperature, resulting in injury
or death. Be sure to follow the instructions below.
Use a Sony XL-2200 replacement lamp (not supplied) for replacement.
Use of any other lamp may damage the LCD projection TV.
Do not remove the lamp for any purpose other than replacement. Doing
so may cause injury or fire.
Before replacing the lamp, turn the power off on the main unit. Wait
several minutes, then unplug the power cord. (The cooling fan will
continue to blow for about two minutes after turning the power off.)
Allow the lamp to cool down completely before removing it. The
surface of the lamp remains extremely hot for at least 30 minutes after
the power has been turned off.
Do not put flammable materials and metal objects inside the lamp
receptacle of the LCD projection TV after removing the lamp. Doing so
may cause fire or electrical shock.
To avoid being burned, do not touch the lamp receptacle once the lamp
has been removed.
Mount the new lamp securely. Failure to do so may cause a fire or the
screen to go dark.
Do not touch the glass of the new lamp with your fingers.
Avoid touching the front glass of a new lamp as this may reduce picture
quality or lamp life.
