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.

Will not flash red/green


This means Battery is low to charge the capacitor.
I suggest you test this with unused new Duracell.

Hi. I've seen this situation on this model. The bulb is not screwed in all the way. You think it is but it is not. If it still doesn't work, get new bulb. Sounds like you got a couple bad bulbs. Good Luck, Mack

Will a Vivitar 285HV fry my Canon EOS 40D? I'd like to experiment with a Vivitar 285HV as an on-camera hot shoe flash. However, I'm reluctant to proceed because of conflicting reports about voltage...


Personally, I would not try it. While the Canon has a protection system built into the camera, the trigger voltage on the Vivitar is pretty high. I have had good results using a 283 on a slave shoe, you will have to stop down more with the extra light

How long does a lamp/bulb of a Toshiba DLP 46HM95 46 in last?


Your bulb may be blowing because of airflow issues or power cycling issues, first does your outlet get switched off at any point in time? if so you may be killing the bulb before it cools, if you turn the set on/off alot and or restart it after off quickly this could lead to permature bulb failure, if the original lamp was not replaced with a proper lamp to match the ballast it could blow the bulb. If your tv is too near a heat vent or the airflow thru the set is not adequate it could blow the bulb.
