Sony LCD , WEGA 42'', the lamp light is blinking , which means from talking to tv shops . The lamp has expired . I removed the back cover of the tv , last night . Everything looks to be it sections , fan which blows air into the lamp box is for cooling I think,,, an dust has gathered from use. The shop next to my work said to remove the lamp box and he would install the new one for 175's and too clean the dust very well , with light air outside. Is there any issue's in removing this lamp box , or should I take to shop and let him fix and install for total of 280.00 to save 105.00 is it worth my time.
