  • Summary: Glad purchased the lamp with casing. Using the old casing and installing the lamp in it would have been more difficult and possibly result in more chances of incorrect installation, thus lamp failure
  • Pros: Easy to instal

Phillips XL-5200 Replacement Lamp for SONY SXRD...

1 February 2009
  • Summary: The "lamp replacement light" on the front of our SONY KDS-50A2000 HDTV started blinking, and the TV would not turn on. I consulted the SONY user manual, and found instructions for removing the lamp, which I did. I could see the filament inside the lamp was burned out, so I called SONY, and they quoted $400 for the service call, including the replacement lamp! So next I got on the Internet and searched for a replacement. Some of the suppliers quoted prices of over $200.
  • Pros: 1. OEM lamp for SONY SXRD projection TV, manufactured by Phillips. 2. Step-by-step instructions with pictures. 3. Complete unit (lamp pre-installed in housing). 4. VERY easy installation-5 minutes.
  • Cons: 1. Lifetime about 2 yrs, based on viewing about 6 hrs/day. 2. High cost. 3. Lamp contains mercury, so old lamp must be disposed of properly.
