I have a 2007 Buick Lucerne and the front reading lamps won't turn off.

Overhead Console Lamp and Roof Rail Courtesy/Reading Lamps
The courtesy/reading lamp is a duel purpose lamp that can be illuminated two different ways. First, the lamp can be turned ON during courtesy lamp operation as described above. Second, the lamps can be turned ON individually for reading lamp operation by the lamp switch. The BCM supplies battery voltage from the INT LAMPS fuse through the inadvertent power courtesy lamps circuit to the courtesy/reading lamps for reading lamp operation only. Ground for the courtesy lamp module or the roof/rail reading lamps is provided at G402

Courtesy Lamps
When either one of the front doors is opened, ground is applied through the door latch door open switch and the door open switch signal circuit to the door module indicting the door open position. In response to this signal, the door module sends a GMLAN serial data message to the BCM of the door open position. Or, when either one of the rear doors is opened, ground is applied through the door latch door open switch and the rear door open switch signal circuit to the BCM is indicating the rear door open position. Once a door open message or signal received, the BCM will then apply battery voltage from the CTSY/RF TRN fuse through the courtesy lamp supply voltage circuits illuminating the lamps listed below:
• Overhead console lamp
• Roof rail courtesy lamps
• Footwell courtesy lamps The BCM receives battery voltage from the INT LAMPS fuse in order to supply power to the inadvertent courtesy lamps. Inadvertent power courtesy lamp feature provides a similar function for the interior lamps as a retained accessory power feature. The BCM will energize the courtesy lamps supply voltage circuit when the BCM is in the active state (awake). When the inadvertent power courtesy lamps supply voltage circuit is energized, it supplies voltage to all the interior lights listed below. The BCM will continue to supply voltage to the interior lamps after the ignition is turned OFF so that the interior lamps may be operated.
• Overhead Console Reading Lamps
• Roof Rail Reading Lamps
• Vanity Mirror Lamps
• I/P Compartment Lamp
• Rear Compartment Courtesy Lamp
In the event that any of these lamps were to remain illuminated for a period of more than 20 minutes with the ignition switch in the OFF position and no BCM input activity, the BCM will deactivate the inadvertent power supply voltage circuit to prevent a total battery discharge condition. The BCM receives battery voltage from the CTSY/RF TRN fuse in order to supply power to the courtesy lamps. The BCM applies this voltage to the courtesy lamps through the courtesy lamp supply voltage circuits. When any door is opened, the door open switch contacts close and the BCM receives a door-open signal. If the BCM receives a door lock or unlock signal, the BCM will activate the courtesy lamp supply voltage circuit, providing battery voltage to the dome lamps and the left and right footwell courtesy lamps. The courtesy lamps can be manually activated by placing the interior lamp switch in the DOME position. For more detailed information concerning courtesy lamp operation refer to Interior Lighting Systems Description and Operation.

GE microwave (Model JE2160SF03) trips breaker when door opened

Remove the control panel, take pictures of the door switch wiring while they are still connected to the door switches, then remove the door switch assembly. Have someone at the appliance store check each switch and repair the ones that are defective.

I purchased a switch for $7, reinstalled the door switch assembly and the microwave is working fine now.

Why is my lamp light flashing on my hitachi 50v500 tv

Did you inspect the lamp? If so and if you replaced it be sure you have it plugged in good and that the door is engaging the door switch and that the door switch is not damaged. If not, take the lamp out at the access door and look to see if it is blown. A replacement can be gotten at at a reasonable price. The lamp sometime may not appear to be blown but look at the bottom of the center glass stem for bubbling of the glass at the base of the stem. If so, then replace the lamp.

First of all, unplug the TV from the wall outlet.
You have a few thousand volts going through your ballast, be very careful!
It's also a good idea to let the TV cool down for a good 15-20 minutes as the bulb itself can get extremely hot.
Locate the lamp enclosure door; it's usually at the back of your television.
There is a screws on the bottom of the lamp door, remove them using a Philips screw driver.
Take the lamp door out by dismounting it from the bottom.
inside you'll find the lamp enclosure,
On the side of the plastic enclosure there is a screw that secures the enclosure, uninstall it with a Philips screwdriver.
Pull it out the old enclosure from your TV and slide in the new one.
Reinstall the screw on the lamp enclosure.
Place the lamp door back in its place.
Secure it tightly with the screws on the bottom of the door.

Take care and good luck

Samsung HLS5679WX/XAA DLP TV set. Problem when I turn on the TV switch, lid on the LCD & Standby lamps back & forth, instead of turning on the screen.

Check for a defective lamp. Open the access door where the lamp is, remove it and see if visually it looks defective.

I purchased the replacement lamp. I'm looking for

2004 Model Sony--

Unplug the TV set!

The XLU2100 LAMP IS accessed from the front of the set---you have to remove the front grill below the screen--if you look on the back on either side you will see a plastic knob you can back out by hand(Black)

Then you have to pull the grill off(it will resist this) start from the right and then the left as it is held in by several plastic pegs.

Usually there are some plastic tabs on the top edge so when you get it to release you may have to lift from the bottom to free it.

If you bought an original lamp from Sony it should have come with a allen wrench. Once the grill is removed you will see the lamp door-it is marked and usually only one or two screws.

Once you open and remove the door you will find the lamp--secured by two silver allen bolts--back the bolts out(they will spin free but not come completely loose) and with the handle on the cartridge--pull the lamp out.

Slide the new lamp in carefully and do not touch the face of the lamp with your hand--you need to make sure the two pin plug engages correctly when you do this--once in tighten the allen bolts down and put the door back on--set will not function if the door is removed!

You can at this point plug the set back in to see if it works---The lamp door must be installed or the set will shut off!

If all is good---align and snap the grill back in place and secure the two wheel like screws on the back that secure it to the case.

I do this here for free so if this information helps you please take a minute and give me a vote here---I am here to help people.

If you have any questions or need more help just reply to this posting here.

How do get to the lamp to replace it

All models are different, but the lamp door is at the rear/ R. hand side close to tyhe bottom quarter, looking from the back. It is a small door that some even have a single screw to hold the door closed. If you have the original manual there are details in there of where to find the door on your model and how to change the lamp

I had a 50hm66 toshibia given to me

Have you tried physically inspecting the halogen lamp? The lamp can be accessed through a door at the side of the set. You need to unscrew the lock on the door and loosen two screws on the bottom of the halogen lamp housing. After loosening the screws you can pull out the lamp housing through its handle. Check if the bulb inside the housing is broken. Look for powdery deposits on the glass or lamp reflector. This are indications of a defective halogen lamp.

Lamp location

No, that was wrong advice. On this model, there is a large door on the right side (as you face the screen) of the TV at the bottom. Remove several screws to take the cover off. Inside, looking along the back of the TV (not toward the screen), you'll see what looks like a wire bail (handle) on a square inset piece about 3 inches square. Remove the screws and pull on the wire bail and the lamp housing will come out with the lamp contained inside. Make sure you unplug the TV before doing any of this. If you are replacing the entire housing with a new lamp you can just plug in the new housing and replace the screws and cover. If you are placing a new bulb in the existing housing you take off 4 small screws and remove the metal cage from the housing, remove and replace the bulb the same way the original is in there, put it back together, and you're done.
