Issue with my philips dlp

My tv picture went out and the lamp failure light came on- i have ordered a new lamp and it will be in tomorrow- the set , when plugged in- blinks 5 fast and 6 slow on the power button- i have been researching and see that others with the same problem replace the lamp and it does not fix the set- so i have been trying to price a ballast, but no one has one and from what i can tell, philips states that they are no longer aviable for sale- i cant believe this as my tv is only 2 years old- the phillips part # is 996510006793, any ideas if the bulb does not fix my problem as i would think the next poss item to rule out would be the ballast

Lessing of brightness on a DLP set is a sign of imminent bulb failure.

Mitsubishi wd 60735 dlp tv red lamp light

A common issue and it may be your problem is dust and dirt inside the unit---the set intakes air from the front and exhausts it out the rear==I have seen several of these sets where removing rear cover and taking stthe set outside and blowing it with a air compressor clears the issue.

Fans and other critical items that get clogged or coated with a moderate amount of dust will cause this issue.

How can I tell if my lamp IS the issue? My 50PL/9126D/37 Philips tv pretty much looks like black & white BUT the picture keeps rapidly flickering random colors in my picture. Yes, the "Lamp...

If the lamp replacement light comes on, surely there will be issue with the lamps; and should be replaced. But the flikereing of colurs will have an other probelm with video card. Chroma section may be some fault with it. Just check the antena if your are using and seeing on-air programme. If you are using cable, check the socket ottection at the backe of the tv for firmness. If connections have some loose contact, or not well tight up, colour flikering will occur. If all the connections are OK and just replace the lamps and see the effect. If this does not help you , replace the chroma card. Consult nearest philips service center for replacement. For lams alos, replace it with original ones from Philips. OK.

Hello I just heard a popping sound and my screen went blank. I tried to turn it back on but all I got was sound and no picture. And the red status light is on.

When the red status light is on, usually the lamp needs to be replaced. Make sure to order the correct lamp type for your TV - order Lamp Part Number 915B403001 from or (800) 553-7278. If the lamp is still under warranty, the replacement will be provided and the original must be returned to confirm the failure was a faulty lamp. The pop may have been the lamp failing.

With the TV off (and off for at least 1 hour to cool down) remove the cover from the lamp compartment from the back of the TV. It is on the lower right of the back of the TV and held by a single #2 Philips screw. Loosen the two screws that hold the lamp cartridge in place. Carefully remove the new lamp cartridge from the bag (use a glove to avoid getting oils from your skin on the lamp) and set aside the bag. Pull the old lamp cartridge straight out by the handle and place in the bag that held the new lamp. Do not twist or rotate the cartridge; glass pieces may fall out of the unit. Close the bag.

Insert the new cartridge carefully (again avoid touching the glass of the lamp with your bare hands). Match the orientation of the old lamp cartridge and push on the housing until it is fully seated. Tighten the two screws holding the cartridge. Then replace the cover and tighten that screw. Do not overtighten the screws.

The other possibility is a failed capacitor (or set of capacitors) in the mirror assembly that focuses the lamp light onto the screen of the TV. However, the totally black screen makes this less likely.

I hope this helps.

DLP Lamp went out, order new one and installed, still no picture

There may be a power supply or cooling fault for the lamp. This would have to be serviced by a service rep for your set.

I have no idea of the cost of the bulb for your set. But I can tell you that from what I see, if you use the set a lot of hours it will become very expensive to use. Because of the heat and cooling problems, the failure rate of the support circuitry for projection TV sets is higher than the normal sets.

I would suggest to service the set, put it up for sale, and get a Plasma or LCD type set. Over the long run LCD and Plasma sets are very maintenance free. Take an exended warranty with the set for insurance just in case something major goes on it. Over its lifetime it will still come out cheaper and more dependable than a projection set, and it will have much sharper pictures.

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.

Loud cracking sound, and now, nothing

Hopefully its only the lamp. Inspect lamp for breakage. Lamp power supply ok??. Check any air vents (filters if any) before replacing. Lamp life is only a few thousand hours, easy to do in a year, 5-6hrs a day. Check your manual.
