How to replace Sony XL-2200 lamp enclosure for your projection TV.
Sony XL-2200 Lamp Enclosure.
Step 1.- Before you start doing anything, unplug the TV from the wall outlet. There are a few thousand volts going through your ballast, be very careful! It’s also a good idea to let the TV cool down for at least 15-20 minutes as the bulb itself can get extremely hot and you can severely burn your hand.
Step 2.- In the front of your TV there is a bottom panel where you can access the lamp enclosure door.
Remove it by uninstalling two screws on each side of the panel with your Flat tip screwdriver.
Step 3.- Now go back to the front and you’ll see a metal security bar across the enclosure.
Use your screwdriver to remove it.
Step 4.- Inside you’ll be able to see a hex toped screw that holds the enclosure in place.
Use a Hex key to release it.
Step 5.- Pull it down and you’ll be able to extract it with ease.
Step 6.- Pop in your new enclosure the same way you took out the old one.
Screw it back in with your hex key.
Place & reinstall the metal bar back again.
Step 7.- Take the bottom panel and place it back in the front of your TV.
