Dlp tv

I have found since the dlp televisions have come out customers want to change their own lamps. This saves them money and techs time to work on other problems, many customers make the mistake of not putting the door that houses the lamp back on before trying the unit. the latch mechanism must be in tact or unit will still flash lamp light bad.

changed 6 lamps y65 none work can they all be bad


Sounds like the circuit that is responsible for sparking and maintaining the voltage to the lamp has gone bad. It's called the Lamp Driver.

Don't waste any more money on lamps. Get a tech to have a look at either repairing or replacing the lamp driver.

Hello.
It looks like you ignored lamp replacement in your TV. It have to be replaced every 2.5 years of average use. It's like oil change in a car. Regular scheduled service.
You can read info about lamp replacement in your TV owner's manual, buy lamp on-line and replace it by yourself to save some money.
Regards.
Russ.

samsung rear projection tries three time then goes


There are several things in this set that will cause this. I have ran into this problem 40-50 times on that specific unit. Most common problem is the lamp. Next most common problem is the DMD board which is a very expensive repair. Next most common cause is the ballast which powers the lamp. Next is the color wheel but usually that gets noisey before it fails. These DLP televisions aren't easy to diagnose but they're easy to work on. Now here's the thing, all four of these problems can be solved by replacing the light engine. If you are willing to put some money into it, the engine assembly is real easy to change. Just google the exact and complete model number and search prices of the light engine. I'm pretty sure the part number is BP96-00305J. Sometimes you can actually ship the engine from your tv in to be rebuilt. This can save you money. Any repair on this tv will probably cost 200-500 but they get a great picture. I have a samsung DLP in my livingroom. Good luck, Russmann.

my sony kdf e55a20 cuts on and off, but the lamp indicator never turns on


Order a new bulb, easy to replace, just read the manual. In the meantime, go into Settings and change the Power to Power Saving, instead of Standard. Your bulb will work fine until the new one arrives.

HEARD LOUD POP NOISE DLP TV DOES NOT WORK


Following up on my Feb 7 post. My new lamp arrived, and I replaced it and it works great. The old lamp had many shards of glass come out of it. It was tore up. I saved some money buy purchasing just the lamp and not the cartridge. It's a little bit more work to take apart, but saves money. Mitsubishi wanted $289 for the lamp replacement kit. I got a lamp for $114. TV is working just fine now!
