I have 65" Mits. lamp lasted about 2+ years and burned out. bought new on internet, that lasted about 5 months and went. Got free replacement and that lasted about 4 months. No more free replacements ...

Bought new from different source and it burned out in a week.

Note: These were ALL OSRAM original lamps from reputable suppliers.

They sent a new one but also cautioned about cleaning the "filter" on the lamp housing. NOT the large screens on either side, but the small rectangular one (about 3/4" x 2"). I did this with a shop vac pulling and pushing from every angle and it was really clogged almost solid. No way air was going across the bulb to cool it.

THIS IS CRUCIAL and I feel is the keys to the kingdom! I did this and voila - no more "plastic smell" when installing the new lamp and everything's great!

I feel that Mits should be held accountable for this for not recommending the lamp housing be cleaned periodically (maybe yearly). I really feel if this were done with my original one it would have last a lot longer.

Green light is blinking


because of poor quality electronic components that cost less than $10. Of course mitsubishi will replace the entire module, so that the repair without warranty would cost $700 to $900.
you're so lucky if your warranty did not expire yet
Good Luck

Less than a year into ownership camera would not turn on and is non-responsive to charging. Never dropped or abused. Replaced battery but still wont turn on or accept charge. i don"t know warranty...


Go here for warranty look up:

http://support.en.kodak.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/19879

If by chance your warranty expired 10 days ago, try reasoning with Kodak about your issue and how the failure occurred 30 days ago and you just now got around to repairing the main unit, not battery. It happens to all of us, I'm sure they'll cut you some slack on the 10 days.

Now if your warranty expired months ago... :(

My 56 inch Samsung DLP keeps shutting off. I have


Once before I had this same problem and FixYa gave me the solution. When you replace the lamp door, there is a switch inside so be sure the door is put in at an angle so to hold the switch up. It solved my problem after numerous repairmen missed it.

DATE DIFERANCE BETWEEN SELECTED COLOUMN


Are you trying to figure the difference in days between these dates and one single date (Dec. 31, 2008 for example)?

Whatever you're trying to do, here is the formula, assuming you're starting in A1:
Put the first date in the format Day-Month-Year in numbers (Sept. 3 is 03-09-2008)
Then put your other date in B1, in Day-Mo-Yr format (31-12-2008 for Dec. 31, 2008)
In C1 put B1-A1 and that will give you the number of days between those two dates.

Samsung HLS4266W 43" dlp


Power issues (Tv not turning on) were typically due to faulty ballast. While the TV reports a bad lamp it is the ballast itself causing the issue. Samsung is well aware and will replace both the ballast and the lamp (since the lamp can be prematurely aged but the bad ballast). After replacment most people stop having issues.

Samsung dlp


HLS4266W 43" dlp. In less than 1 yr whining grew worse, but did know what it was. Year passed with warranty and lamp went out. Replaced lamp. Worked for 3.5 hrs. Turned on next day and did not work. Got another lamp, but did not work. Figured out might be color wheel. Replaced it too. TV started up. Watched that night. Turned on next day, heard loud pop. Lamp never came on. Withdrew and reinstalled lamp a couple times to see if that worked. Did not. Currently, with new lamp and color wheel installed, lamp light blinks, but no lamp comes on. What now?
