The most DLP Television last in between 1000 and 2000 hours this is whit the original lamp and depending on your brand.



Example the Philips lamp last between 6000 to 8000 hours and Osram like 4000 to 6000 hours usually the brand



Some lamps might last only 500 hours while others may last 3000 hours of life so check brand. And keep it clean of dust.

How do I know if I need a new lamp?


Hi,
Yes, if you have not replaced the lamp since you purchased this TV.
Lamps usually last about 6000 hours.
I've seen lamps last much longer than 6000Hrs, it all depends on the usage.
Remove the lamp from the TV and do a visual inspection, see if there's a crack on the glass or the bulb.
If the TV is few years old then the Lamp may be bad.

Buy original Lamp: 800 638-3328

DO NOT BUY the cheap lamp from ebay

Good luck to you.

Mitsubishi wd-60735 no picture and red lamp light stays on


you have a digitdl light processing (dlp) television, which uses a high-pressure mercury-vapor lamp. depending on the hours of usage,the lamp will last about 1-2 years. the red lamp most likely indicates the end of lamp life. the lamp will need to be replaced. the owners manual will have instructions on how to replace the lamp. you can order a lamp on line. i perfer a brand name lamp. follow the instruction carefullt. i found that the television needs to be unpluged for an extended amuont of time to completely reset the timers, at least an hour. i have an older model wd62525.

Yes.Depend how old is ur DLP tv,the Projection Lamp only a light source,mostly depended on the Light projection Engine itself.Get the original RCA DLP lamp or same lamp model now inside the tv,will help and work best for ur tv.Just don't get generic DLP tvs lamp,it cheaper poorer quality.

The power will not turn on and the power LED is flashing red.


PT-50LD54 is an LCD rear projection TV with a consumable bulb that wears out normally after 2-5 years of use.

Most likely you need a bulb. That is first step in any troubleshooting for that tv. Check out Panasonic Gallery to identify lamp and replacement bulb.

Changing bulb involves removing the lamp assembly and replacing the bulb in the lamp assembly. Like doing a puzzle. Requires philips screwdriver, pliers and patience. Don't have jam on your fingers when you do it.

Hi,do you hear any strange noises? If you hear clicking or like wanting to turn on it could be the board that powers the lamp it's called the ballast.Here's the instructions to replace it :http://www.fixyourdlp.com/guides/samsung/bp47-00033a.php But if you don't hear any strange noises,tv is around 6000 hrs,2-4 yrs it could be time to replace the lamp.The lamp you need is BP9600826A.Have a blessed one!
