The lamp did not work. Returned the lamp to HMH who in turn refunded my money. I then purchased a lamp directly from Sony at a much higher price, but the Sony manufactured lamp worked perfectly as expected.
Works well. Price is right. Not sure if it is new because the "replace lamp" warming still comes on. Could be a programming issue in the tv but we do wonder if product is used or poor quality. Not throwing the old one away, just in case.
