Question about Sharp 56DR650 56" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Missing wire clamp on lamp housing.

I got my TV as a gift, with the person saying it only needed a light bulb. So I bought the bulb, went to replace it and couldn't figure out why the light bulb wouldn't stay in place. So I watched on of those "How To" movies and noticed that they had something I didn't: a clamp. The entire housing is WAY too much money for me, anyone know if there is a "rig-it" way to hold the light bulb in or somewhere to find this little piece of bent metal? If not I'll end up cutting up a hanger and forming it, but I'd rather have the real thing.

Well, I fixed it myself. I used a wire hanger, measured and cut a portion off, bent it in a shape that fit in the housing and around the light bulb. Turned out pretty nice if I do say so myself. TV is working fine and dandy now! =)

I bought a mitsubishi wd 52327 new several years ago. I've replaced the lamp once and it worked fine but now it needs to be replaced again. We bought a lamp off EBay w/housing. I installed it but the tv...


Hi Brent, Mitsubishi's have a problem with the power supply and the Light Engine which incorporates the Digital Module of which it has to be purchased as a complete assembly. I sincerely believe you should not put that kind of money into a dlp set. The cost of the light engine is in the area of $1100.00. Your last idea is the best one.

Samsung 50" DLP - Lamp Light Blinking after bulb replacement


Listen closely. The tv should make a high pitch whine as it turns on. If it does wait and see if it tries this a few times. If yes then check the bulb, I have seen cases where the lamp shoves the power connector back into the set. If the tv starts with a grown or heavy vibration noise, then your color wheel may have broken and needs replaced.

I can't seeem to find out how to put the new lamp back into the t.v


Hi,
if this is either of the 51" or 56" DLP tv's, it is very simple.
-Make sure tv is UNPLUGGED!
-Open the side compartment on left side of tv as you are facing it from the front.
-Take off the door and you will see the lamp housing.There are 2 screws facing you.Unscrew these and set the screws aside.
-Now pull on the housing a little and it should slide out.You may need to wiggle it a little.
-Set housing down on table or somewhere with good light.Make sure not to touch bulb of either the old lamp or new as oils from fingers can distort picture.
-Now,undo screws on shiny metal piece.There are 2.Take off metal housing piece.
-You now see the back of the bulb.If you look at the lamp from the front,you will notice where the 2 wires are fitted into a bracket with 2 screws.
-Unscrew those screws to loosen the bracket.The replacement lamp should have the exact same bracket.If not you can just undo the wires to the old lamp and connect the same wire harness to the new one.
-once the wire bracket is unscrewed, pull it out of its fitting and then unscrew the 4 screws holding the lamp in.
-Take notice of how the shiny metal clamp-fitting is situated to hold the lamp in place so you can put it back on the right way.
-Once loosened, the bulb should be able to come out and you can put the new one right in it's place. Make sure to keep the top wire connector on the bulb at about 11 o'clock and that a nub on the bulb fits through a spacer on the shiny metal clamp-fitting.
-Now tighten the 4 screws on the clamp-fitting and make sure the wire screw connectors on bulb are tight as well.
-Take the now loose rubber-covered wires and tighten them into the bracket-fitting the way the old ones were,with plugs and lamp facing the same way.
-With everything now tight,put metal housing back on and tighten the 2 screws down.
-Take the whole unit and slowly slide it back into the tv making sure that the plugs slide into their rightful place.This should be easy,but may require a wiggle or two.
-Now screw in the 2 screws you have left into the plastice mounting piece. Re-attach the door and plug the tv in.Wait a few minutes and then turn on tv.
-It should work.If not, unplug tv and check all connections.
TIP:Do not put a cold bulb in and then turn on immediately.I like to let the bulb sit in the tv with it plugged in for a while until the bulb is warmed and ready.
Good Luck! -Chris

My hitachi 50v720 bulb blew and the replacement doesn't fit


I believe the lamp you need is the UX21516. not the 21517
I have a 50VF820 and this is the lamp for it.
By the way my unit just hit the 3 years and the lamp just blew as well.

I fixed my TV. As I said, the TV would come on and work normally for about 1 minute. Then, it would turn off and the red power LED would blink continuously with the fan running, indefinitely. One more thing I did not mention previously is that the LAMP led on the front panel would blink once every 4 to 5 seconds.

After reading many different blogs, I went for the cheap fix first. I purchased the Ballast repair kit, Panasonic P/N LSUC0022. $21. It required opening up the ballast unit and replacing some components on the PCB. I noticed that some of the values of the components were different than the original ones. Unfortunately, the symptoms after this repair were the same. Oh well - no harm done. Perhaps improved it for the long run.

Next thing to try was the bulb. A costly thing to try, but an extra buld won't go to waste if I get the TV working.

Much to my surprise, this did the trick. Works fine now. The bulb had 1600 hours on it.

By the way, I went the less expensive route for the bulb. I purchased the bulb only - not the bulb with the enclosure. It was very easy to do, and much less expensive. I also purchased a Philips brand bulb, which is supposed to be much better than the original. If you decide to go the "bulb only" route, I highly recommed getting it here http://www.discount-merchant.com/Panasonic-TY-LA1500-Replacement-Lamp-bare-bulb-p/panasonic_ty-la1500_lamp_1.htm&Click=1683. This buld includes the wires and connectors, and requires only a screwdriver. This company also offers a Philips bulb with the entire enclosure. Don't get a bulb only that requires cutting wires and soldering!

I did eventually get a service manual. The troubleshooting chart for the LED blink pattern I had indicated the following:

"Wait until the lamp has cooled off. Confirm that the Thermal Fuse Unit is not open. Still NG, replace the Lamp. Still NG, replace the Ballast C.B.A. Still NG, replace the Main C.B.A."

Thanks to the person who responded! Your kindness inspired me to respond back with my results....

I have a viore monitor ipt46dl30 which just went black but we can still hear the voice.. help?


I'm in the process of ordering a replacement bulb for a friends set right now. The information below is exactly what's needed to get the correct bulb for this DLP television.

TV Make: Viore

TV Model: IPT46DL30 (Confirmed to be on TV label)

Bulb/Lamp Model: SHP70 (This number is right at the top of the bulb/lamp, where the wires connect)

Housing Model: 140-1027 (This is also known as the Ballast which houses the bulb/lamp)

Now, I've managed to locate the bulb/lamp from a few different sites. Unfortunately, there doesn't appear to be a reputable manufacturer making aftermarket bulbs for this DLP model. The original bulb type is all we have to look forward to. The cheapest price that I've found so far is $120.00. I have also found these particular bulbs for as high as $295.00. Needless to say, I'm going with the former.

http://www.replacementlightbulbs.com/lampshp70.html - $120.00 (Buying)

http://purelandsupply.com/140-1027-Bulb-Akai-DLP-TV-Lamps.html - $277.90 (Too much)

http://www.encompassparts.com/products/?140-1027 - $295.00 (Too much & very skeptical)

PT43LC14 Bulb Replacement


Long screwdriver? maybe if you consider about 3" being long (explains why wifes upset). I have replaced the bulb only and the housing with bulb several times with this pos tv. The housing and bulb is one philips screw behind the front snap off panel (the big front piece that has the hdtv stamp in bottom right corner, just pull out it has push in plastic stubs) then remove the philips screw next to the big white warning label where there is a small half circle cutout around it in the label. then one screw on the big black piece of plastic with a fold down metal handle. Then just pull strait out, little snug but as long as you loosen the screw it should slide right out. to replace just slide in whole housing replacement and tighten the 2 screws back up. As for just replacing the bulb, I buy mine off ebay and they have all come with real ez instructions. I believe there is 2 screws holding the clip for the 2 wires coming off the housing, just take that out as the new one comes with wires. you just screw on the 2 wires to new bulb tighten down the wire clip and put it back together. The housing can be just pried open with a flat head screwdriver (think there was a couple tack welds) then after new bulbs in just bend back in as much as you can, it will clear in the tv and be fine so it doesnt need to be exact. Hope this helps and if anyone wants another one of these tv's you can have mine!

WD-62327 Lamp


OSRAM VS. PHILLIPS
This is about buying replacement bulbs for the WD62327 TVs.I dont know about the other models but I purchased a PHILLIPS replacement bulb and it worked for about a week and then those dumb flashing lights and no TV. I did some research and others were saying that you had to replace some condensers. Shop would do it for 600 dollars..Well i sent the bulb back and bought an OSRAM replaement bulb. The TV is now working perfect.
