Hello, I have a LG rear projection tv model number LG 52SZ8R-ZA that has recently stopped working at 100%. The screen appears alot duller as though the brightness has been turned right down. Is the problem...


Hello, You can get better prices for bulbs on the Internet. I went through this problem with my set.
Sometimes there is an upgrade in bulb Wattage on an individual basis by Model. What you may be having problems with is a system called a "Light Engine". This assembly has the power module and a spinning part called a "Light Wheel".
Your problem then can be from any of these devices. Your old bulb could have a dark spot (As normal light bulbs can develop), a weak power module, or a light wheel not spinning at the correct RPM for clarity.
You can take a chance and try a new bulb yourself or call for a Technician to give you either a "Convergence Set-up" or Evaluation and Repair estimate.
I learned about the insides of these TV's from the Front-Projectors and my own Rear-Projectors which had Warranty Recalls. So I have seen Messed-up and know what it looks like and somewhat about the causes and cures.

If you are getting a Convergence service, you may want to get the Estimate, then install a new bulb through the Internet, and then get it all set up fresh with the new bulb.

My LG projection tv (serial number 52sx4d-ub) won't turn on, an orange light flashes then turns red. How do I know if I need to change the bulb or the ballast? And how much does it cost to change the...


Orange blinking light under a small picture of a light bulb? Then turns to a red light?
Sounds like the same problem I had when I picked up my LG 52SZ8R. After replacing the lamp the TV ran fine.

Easiest way to see if the lamp is the problem is to take it out, and look at the peice of wire in the globe as you would an old light globe.

If you need help, download the following manual, and look at page 9.
http://www.jordansmanuals.com/ServiceManuals/LG/TV/PROJECTION/62SX4R/62SX4R%20Service%20Manual.pdf

If it does come down to you needing to replace the ballast contact: http://www.statewideapp.com.au/index.php?selectedContent=1188381775
They should be able to give you a quote and part number, if you don't like their quote you can always use the part number to search for one thats cheaper.

I have an LG DLP. that turns off after 15 -30 seconds


If the second light is blinking to orange or red, that is usually the lamp indicator light on an LG DLP tv. That indicates your bulb needs replaced, or something surrounding the bulb has failed (like the cooling fan for the bulb for example) IF you have a spare bulb handy, I'd replace the bulb, keeping in mind if you touch any part of a new bulb with your bare hands, you just cut the life of the bulb by more then half.

On screen message "lamp life over error!" when first switched on.


It is easily changed yourself; take the access door off where the lamp is, then two phillips screws on the lamp. Get the old one out before you go and buy a new one to make sure you can do it.

I have a LG 52SZ8R-TB DLP TV. I have recently had to replace the lamp. I ordered this through a certified LG repairer. Upon fitting the new lamp the TV appears to not be light enough. It is that dark I...


We had the same problem. One place changed the lamp but they couldnt work out why it was red and lots of shadows. Next mob said that it was the component so they replaced that. From the 28/4 till end of Oct, the TV has now switched itself off and wont come back on. Both places say its the lamp - however I cant see how in 6mths it would run out again. The people who replaced the lamp dont want to help, just said they will put in a new one at $521. This TV has cost us so far $1100 in repairs and it's only 3 yrs old. Not happy. The DVD recorder broke within the first year, the set top box broke in the 2nd yr and the surround system blew up (yes smoke appeared and we were lucky we were home) on the 13th month. Mind you our LG comp screen also shut down on the 13th month. Never again will I buy LG
