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! =)

Samsung HLR5667wx/xaa. Power surge took out tv. Replaced bulb and the bulb works, but tv wont come on and lamp light is flashing.


Hello, it sounds like the color wheel may have failed. Was there any noises, like a high pitch sound before it went out? If the color wheel isn't turning at proper speed, the set won't start up by shutting down the lamp protection circuit.

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 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 had this same problem over the summer, I had my TV for two years before it went out. You need a new lamp. The lamp is not hard to replace on your own. However, you MUST make sure that you do not touch the lamp (the bulb part) in anyway. If you do your new lamp will not last as long. You can order the lamps online. They range anywhere from 150-300 dollars online. However, I found a TV repair company in my city that only charged me 100.00 for the lamp and they told me If I took out the box that holds the lamp they would replace the lamp for me. They also gave me a 1 yr warrantee on the lamp. All I had to do was un-screw the box from the back of the TV take the box to the TV repair company and I placed the box back into my TV. My TV works. While going through this process, I learned that these lamps go out all the time, the more you watch the TV the more often you'll replace the lamp. I was told from the repair company it could be as often as every year. The Lamp does have MURCURY in it so if you replace the lamp on your own be careful and have it recycled. If you live in SLC UT the repair company I went though was Village TV Sales and Service.

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.
