Sony XL-2200 lamp. No screens. Fake or the real deal ?

08-16-2010, 12:40 PM
I just bought a Replacement lamp for my sony KDF-60XS955 from ebay, (seller newtvlamps). The seller says that it is a origonal phillips bulb but it does not have any screens in it like the old bulbs. Did they stop putting screens in the bulbs for a reason or is this nothing more then a cheap knock off ? Also, I saw no diffrance in the brightness of my tv when I installed the bulb.

yes they stopped making this bulbs with the screens on the sides the screens were used to keep out the dust from coming inside the bulbs but if you still have the old bulb you could see that screens don't keep much out Philips lamps have to have the Philips brand on them so check this bulb out to see if it does you also have to remember that Philips are the best lamps out there please correct me if I'm wrong :cool::cool:
