replaced the optical block a few years ago to correct the yellowish hue problem. Recently I had to replace the lamp. I had bought one new about 2 years ago. I put the lamp in and the TV is much dimmer than before, can hardly see during the day. Does a lamp go bad after a number of years? DO i need a new lamp or is there an something I am overlooking? I have also reset the defaults and cycled the power.


Lamps only last Between 5,000 hours some last 8,000 hours
So what that means For Every hour TV is Playing it is burning up hrs of lamp. These sets are not like projection that you can run day and night .
Most Lamps need replacing every 2 yrs Depending on how many hours you watch TV?
It could be that the Lamp you have is defective ,Mats has Lamps for $99.00 1-800-628-1118
Get New Lamp then see if that corrects the problem.

Lamp replaced 1.5 years ago, now the picture goes out but comes back on every few minutes, as if it gets to hot and needs to cool down. Fan comes on.


Lamps only last for 5,000 hrs -8,000 Playing hrs
It means every hour you Play TV Lamp burns up the hours, so after 5,000hrs on most Lamp needs replacing, some Lamps dont even last this long DLPs are not like Projection you can play them 24-7 and Tubes will remain good, But Lamps are like a light bulb they all burn out after so many hours.
Best thing is to turn TV off if you are not watching it, in order to Save Hours burt on Lamp.
Mats has Lamps for $99.00 1-800-628-1118
Replace the Lamp.
