replaced lamp in 55vg825 approx 1500hrs ago & lately the picture has lost brightness compared to when the new bulb was installed. Is there another adjustment or is the bulb defective already? Past experience dictates the bulb either works or doesn't work.


bjac,

You are correct about lamps working or not, but that is the extremes. Over the course of operation all lamps lose brightness as the hours add up. All lamps will lose their brightness over time.

Typically lamps only last at best 6000 to 8000 hours. That is not long if the unit is used most of the day everyday. In addition the cheaper the quality of the lamp, cost and manufacture, the quicker they go down hill.

Assuming that you have a low quality lamp what you are experiencing is normal. You may be able to improve the brightness and clarity of the picture by cleaning the lenses, mirrors and screen. I have a tip at

This tip is labeled projection tv but is also appropriate for cleaning an LCD or DLP unit.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

Brightness has decreased. What might be the problem be.


The lamp inside your tv is what provides the brightness for your screen.After so much usage the lamps lose brightness.Therefore your image will seem dimmer.You can go to discount-merchant.com to find the lamp you need.

why is my toshiba 46h84 picture getting darker than before? Its becoming harder to see darker scenes in movies


It sounds like your lamp is getting close to the end of its lifespan.The lamp is what gives your screen its brightness.With time they start losing this brightness.If you were to wait to replace it till it goes out completely you would have a black screen.You can purchase a quality lamp at discount-merchant.com
