The flash tube for these kinds of units are not user changeable- high voltages and electronics technical expertise are required for safe and successful replacement. Find a qualfied service facility through your dealer.

If it is bayonet type bulb, you may have to push in on the bulb and twist simultaneously. (Rubber fingertips are very helpful!)

Other bulbs simply unscrew.

However, there are also some machines (mostly newer models) which require the bulbs to be replaced by a technician.

I have a 55in Samsung Dlp the color looks good but a little dark can't see picture if the movie is dark


You might need a new bulb, the bulbs get dim as there life diminishes. Replace the bulb to get a bright picture. Do not use cheap bulbs, an OEM bulb for that tv should be $60+. . Cheap clone bulbs will work but will fail a lot sooner

Bertazzoni hood replace bulb


First remove cover to access the bulb, pull bulb straight down being careful not to break it. to replace w/new bulb, remove bulb from package, be sure to use a cloth or some type of glove so as not to get oils from your fingers on the new bulb as this will create a hot spot on the new bulb and shorten the life of the bulb. Install the new bulb by inserting into the fixture by gently pushing the bulb into socket.


Hope this helps

Put new bulb 2 wks ago, now I have sound but no picture, hear fan running, but bulb does not come on. Turns on just fine no blinking lights at all


You have a defective bulb. Unfortunately it does happen. If you bought just the bulb, then don,t do that again. Always buy a new bulb with the housing and don\'t touch the bulb eith your hands. Most bulb sellers warrant their bulbs for at least 3 months. Some warrant for up to one year but you pay a little more, about $80-100. If you bought the $35-45 bulb (made in china) then you get what ya get. Nothing against the chinese, just the people who pay them 30 cents an hour to make a product extremely fast with no care for quality control. The chinese are hard working people. Chinese products are made to be disposable on purpose so you can buy a new something more often.

Tail light out


If your socket is getting power then the bulb should light. Are you checking for power with a test light or meter? Is it getting a full 12 volts or more? If you are is the bulb getting a good ground? If all this is good maybe the bulb you are trying is no good. Even new bulbs can get the filaments broken during shipping. Please rate my answer so I am awarded points for it.

Can't get the head lamp bulbs out removed The cover unplugged the light pulled the Wire harness down but the bulbs won't Budge


Almost all headlight bulbs have a bayonet mount with a rubber gasket. The bulbs have to be turned about 1/4 turn, usually counterclockwise, to remove them. If you have the new bulb, look closely at the mount on it. It will be helpful in knowing how the bulbs are installed. If the bulb has contacts that you push into the holder, the holder is what you need to get out. It will have the bayonet mount. Sometimes the bayonet is hard to turn if the gasket is stuck to the housing. However, don't use any solvent or lubricant because if it gets into the housing it can damage the mirror coating. Even moisture inside the housing can damage the coating, so be sure you install the new bulb correctly with the gasket in place. Be sure not to touch the new bulb with your bare fingers. The oil from your skin will burn on the bulb surface and shorten its life and light output. Never touch any halogen bulb with your bare fingers.

How to change headlight bulb?


Which side? You may have to remove the battery to get at the socket for the bulb. Once the socket is exposed and you are able to get at it - turn it counter clockwise and pullit out to expose the bulb. Remove the bulb and replace it with a new one. Do not touch the glass of the new bulb. Then reverse procedure to finish.
