You set a Multimeter to read impedance (ohms) then put the two sensors of the Multimeter on the lamp contacts, if it reads infinite impedance, then lamp has blown.

    There are several kind of LDP lamps , LED ones can be superficially tested with a multimeter, mercury vapour lamps and CRT cannot be tested with a multimeter.

    All DLP lamps are normally not tested , but you know they are faulty using the TV diagnostic.

    I will be grateful if you can change the rating given, it was not very kind on your side.

    Thanks

It sounds like your looking for a CRT (red) the part # is on the CRT and could be puchased through any Zenith (LG) distributer- usually around $300- $500. Google the part # when you get it and you may find a used Picture Tube (CRT)for cheaper.

The picture flickers occasionally. I am wondering if the bulb is going.


The WS-55809 is a rear projection TV and does not have a bulb, it has 3 picture tubes. DLP and LCD Projection sets have bulbs, or mercury vapor lamps. Does your picture flicker equally with different inputs?

My sony is turning on and off when I turn it on. The picture and sound appear and disappear. What is wrong and do you have the part..


Hi,

The most common cause of picture disappearing and returning in a Sony LCD Rear Projection TV is a faulty bulb. Replacing the bulb is the first step in troubleshooting this type of problem in KDS-60A2000 and all other Sony Rear Projection LCD TVs.

Sony Lamp Gallery
shows all Models and Lamps for Sony Rear Projection LCD TVs. KDS-60A2000 uses XL-5200U Lamp.

If a Sony rear projection Tv is showing a red shadow on type is it the bulbs?


Hello,

This problem is very common with rear projection TV's.

It is related to one or more of the colour guns (Bulbs) being out of alignment. The only way to correct this issue is to have a technician come in and fix it or bring it into a repair center. I personally would suggest purchasing a new TV. The cost of getting them aligned is usually more then a basic LCD.

Hope this helps

The power will not turn on and the power LED is flashing red.


PT-50LD54 is an LCD rear projection TV with a consumable bulb that wears out normally after 2-5 years of use.

Most likely you need a bulb. That is first step in any troubleshooting for that tv. Check out Panasonic Gallery to identify lamp and replacement bulb.

Changing bulb involves removing the lamp assembly and replacing the bulb in the lamp assembly. Like doing a puzzle. Requires philips screwdriver, pliers and patience. Don't have jam on your fingers when you do it.

61 inch projection tv flashing on and off


The most common problem with JVC LCD rear projection TV is bulb failure. Do not panic, this is normal after 2-5 years of use.

You can change the complete assembly or for less cost just change the bulb. Do not use Osram or other funny brand "rebuilt" or locally made bulb. Use a Philips replacement and all should be good.

Changing the bulb involves removing the lamp assembly and taking it apart like a puzzle and replacing the bulb. JVC are a little more difficult to do than most others because the wires on the original bulb are molded into the glass on the original bulb. Wires must be cut and stripped of insulation before connecting to the new bulb.

All JVC LCD Rear projections TVs use TSCL110 TSCL110U TS-CL110U Lamps.

HD-61FB97 HD-61FC97 HD-61FH96 HD-61FH97 HD-61FN97 HD-61G587 HD-61G657 HD-61G787 HD-61G887 HD-61Z456 HD-61Z575 HD-61Z575AA HD-61Z585 HD-61Z786 HD-61Z886

Check this out for all JVC models to identify the lamp and bulb. JVC Gallery.

Hello, I have an LG lcd rear projection tv and parts of the screen are turning blue, do you think it's just the bulb or the light engine?


Hey there first of all your tv is a lcd rear projection set, this tv's don't have a light engine system, they use a optical block

whats happpening is that one of your lcd chips is burning out and this problem will start to get worst, to be honest with you it's very hard to purchase just the LCD chips, you need to buy the optical block to fix your set, also the bulb has nothing to do with the color the bulb just shoots out light.

please rate this solution!!!!!
