Question about Philips Magnavox 50ML8105D 50" HDTV DLP TV
I replaced the bulb on my Magnavox dlp tv after the repair man i called said the tv needed a new bulb because the red light on the tv when the bulb fails came on. the tv also turned itself off. the tv still dosn't work. i called another repair man who came to my home and he said it was my color wheel and a new one would cost $1700.00. so far i have spent over $200.00. do you think it's my color wheel or could it be something else? the tv is less than 2 years old. please help.
I've never heard of a color wheel costing that much even with labor included - I think I'd try to find another tech for his advice.. If you have trouble locating one try NESDA or let me know what city/state you're in and maybe I can help recommend someone.
That said, if the lamp is good the next logical thing to check is the ballast. If the ballast is not supplying voltage to the lamp then it clearly won't light. A ballast is not that expensive, similar to a ballast in a floresent light - only a bit more complex. In any event I would strongly suggest finding a real professional first we are out there...

I am located in Lancaster CA and having an issue with my Magnavox 51MP392H/17. My tv is showing double and is fuzzy. Do I need to replace the bulb? If so where is it located?
