Tip & How-To about Televison & Video
This is to help explain the short lives of Lamps.
WARRANTY: If a lamp fails within the first year replace Lamp and Ballast.
If Lamp explodes do not replace Ballast only lamp, but if lamp didn’t explode replace both.
If you experience more than one Lamp failure within one year of use replace the Ballast.
The Panasonic Brand offers a Ballast repair kit (LSUC0022), it only works about 20% of the time.
I would not recommend this replacement kit. It will get you past the 30-45 day warranty period in most cases but it will not be the proper FIX to the customer’s unit and they will only call you back or (most important) call another Service Center.
I have experienced maybe 100 customers that had other Service Companies come out and only replace the Lamp. When the Lamp and Ballast should have been replaced.
I hope this helps the Customers and the Technicians in their judgment.
If I was redundant I apologize, just trying to help.
Good Day, big IRISH
