Thanks for the response Shahid.Sony #kfd42we655. Bought the lamp online.Cost$100plus.
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 3 years ago
Thanks E.J for the info.
Lamp is the light source for this type of TV and if lamp isn't producing enough light then the image/picture wouldn't be bright, Sony original XL-2100 lamp would be available around US$200 or so that will help to get brighter picture in this TV but I would not recommend to spend that amount on this old TV which is already obsolete for current video devices and if it was my TV then I would prefer to invest that money on new TV to get latest video technology and features in TV.
Please check following link to view Sony original lamp price info if want to keep this TV..
