I have a 55in Samsung Dlp the color looks good but a little dark can't see picture if the movie is dark


You might need a new bulb, the bulbs get dim as there life diminishes. Replace the bulb to get a bright picture. Do not use cheap bulbs, an OEM bulb for that tv should be $60+. . Cheap clone bulbs will work but will fail a lot sooner

I just bought a new lamp 3 months ago, and the screen is now very dark. With the brightness all the way up the picture is dark.


Hi,

Your most likely fault is bulb failure. The only way to confirm a weak bulb situation is to replace with a known "good" bulb. Maybe your replacement bulb is not the correct one, or has a problem, like damage from shipping or poor quality to start with. We hear from many users that buy el cheapo bulbs from Internet shopping carts and have failure within 30-90 days. Many shopping carts churn out inferior copies, surplus or rejected products ranging from TV parts to doll clothes and costume jewelry.

Premature lamp failure can also occur with rough use such as:
  • Turning off TV and starting again while still hot.
  • TV turned on while Lightning strikes or other power line "bumps" occur.
  • Collisions with vacuum cleaners or balls bounced against TVs while operating.
  • Over-heating caused by poor ventilation or direct sunlight.
You may also have optical engine failure if images on the Sony Optical Engine Fault Gallery appear with the dim picture.

Life of a bulb


Hello,

I too have an early P1 series Livingstation with a bulb that MAY be going out. I've been searching online and found several suppliers with prices ranging from $249 to $367. the Epson store seems to be the cheapest and probably most reliable supplier at $249 including shipping! http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/ProductQuickSpec.jsp?BV_UseBVCookie=yes&oid=40809413&category=

The stated life of the bulb is 10,000 hours ... and I've had my LSP1 for perhaps 4 years. We use it kind of heavily - and I'd say we've used it roughly 30-40 hours a week... and over 4 years I'd say that equates to 200 weeks at 30-40 hours = 6000-8000 hours of use already. So, once I replace the current lamp - if the replacement works well... then I'll immediately buy a spare bulb. That will enable effective use for another 20,000 hours with the new replacement and spare. That hould last me about 9-11 more years for only $500 or so.... assuming I get 4.5-5.5 years of use per bulb.

I finally wet out and bought the tv repair manual. Thought the problem had to be more than the bulb because i was losing sound too. Everything in hte repair manual brought me to the bulb or the ballast. I ordered a replacemant bulb. I spent about 150, which included overnight shipping. I replaced the bulb just before Thanksgiving and haven't had any problems as of yet....
