Replacing the Lamp
Replace the lamp with a new one if a message displayed on the projected image or the LAMP/ COVER indicator notifies you to replace the lamp. Use an LMP-F230 projector lamp (for VPL-FX30), LMP-F272 projector lamp (for VPL-FH31/FH30), LMP-F331 projector lamp (for VPL-FH36/FH35/VPLFX37) for replacement.
Caution
# The lamp remains hot after the projector is turned off. If you touch the lamp, you may burn your finger. When you replace the lamp, wait for at least an hour after turning off the projector for the lamp to cool sufficiently.
# Do not allow any metallic or inflammable objects into the lamp replacement slot after removing the lamp, otherwise it may cause electrical shock or fire. Do not put your hands into the slot.
# If the lamp breaks, contact qualified Sony personnel. Do not replace the lamp yourself.
# When removing the lamp, be sure to pull it out straight, by holding it by the specified part. If you touch a part of the lamp other than the specified part, you may be burned or injured. If you pull out the lamp while the projector is tilted, the pieces may scatter if  the lamp breaks any may cause injury.
1. Turn off the projector, and disconnect the AC power cord from a wall outlet.
2. When the lamp has cooled sufficiently, open the rear panel by loosening the three screws.
3. Loosen the three screws on the lamp then pull out the lamp by its grab.
4. Insert the new lamp all the way in until it is securely in place. Tighten the three screws.

Note:
Be sure to install the lamp and rear panel securely as it was. If not, the projector cannot be turned on.

Cleaning the Air Filter
When a message appears on the projected image indicating time for a filter cleaning, clean the air filter.
If the dust cannot be removed from the air filter even after cleaning, replace the air filter with a new one.
1. Turn off the projector, and disconnect the AC power cord from the AC outlet.
2. Open the rear panel by loosening the three screws on the rear panel.

The two air filters on the bottom of the air filter unit cannot be removed from the air filter unit.
5. Return the air filter to the air filter unit then return it to the projector.
6. Close the rear panel and tighten the three screws.
Be sure to attach the air filter unit and rear panel firmly; the power cannot be turned on if it is not closed securely.
