SOURCE: CHANGED THE LAMP AND CODE ORANGE IS ON

Perhaps....If the lamp still will not fire, most likely is a bad ballast. If you are electronically inclined,. first make sure the thermal cutoff on the lamphouse has not opened first and then check to make sure the 300 volt supply to the ballast is ok. If the fans are not running, and this is a combined ballast/power supply, most likely it is bad.

Was the replacement lamp the same part number as the original as there are different arc gaps for different lamps and the wrong arc gap will cause the lamp not to light. Since the ballast is powering up the lamp should light if the baalast is matched to the correct arc gap of the lamp being used.

I have a 4 ft 2 lamp flourescent system. I am changing the ballast. The existing wiring has blue / red / yellow / black & white wires. I have a new ballast (yes I confirmed at the store it is the...


The first thiing I suggest is checking the installation instructions (either included with the ballast or on-line) of the ballast you just purchased. Many fluorescent ballasts require that the lamps be wired in series - which I believe is what you had before. One lamp connects between the red & the yellow, the other connects between the yellow & the blue. Other fluorescent ballasts require that the lamps be wired in parallel - which may be what you have now (both lamps connect between the red & the blue). The installation instruction sheets should designate the appropriate wiring configuration.

That being said, just double-check one thing: Make sure the new ballast is rated for 2-lamps. Ballasts rated for 1-lamp will only include the red & the blue (no yellow). So I know you sad you already checked with the destributor, but double-check that one point.

No power to lighting ballast ,only lights up on loss of power 277v at emergency ballast


Follow the appropriate wiring exactly. There are about 6-8 different diagrams. Find your lamp type and number of lamps. Locate your ballast type (usually instant these days) Quite often these diagrams show a switch on the power lead going to the operating ballast. If it isn't on a switch be sure to wire it in with the lead to the emergency battery ballast.

Samsung HLP4674W - changed bulb - still no picture - lights flash


If the lamp has been replaced I would think the Lamp ballast would be most likliest followed by the color wheel and then the Digital board. You can get any part needed for your model at www.tvrepairworld.com just leave them a email they respond quickly.

RED LAMP LIGHT CAME ON AND TV TURNED OFF


since you changed the ballast and the power supply the first thing i would do is recheck the plug connections on bothe boards. the wires on the power supply have a funny routing and sometimes can get cut or pinched. the small connector on the ballast will get loose pin connections and not make contact.if those look ok, leave the back covers off, put the air filter door on. nnow while you are listening over by the ballast, turn on the set, and check for a small arcing sound.if you here one that means the ballast is firing. look to see if you pushed the lamp wires out of the lamp housing.
post back what you find and we can go farther

Ballast Verification Process
1. Short out door switch (SP001)
2. Apply AC power and wait till DM module boots
3. Press power switch and observe spark gap on ballast
4. If spark gap arcs, suspect Lamp. If color wheel starts but ballast won’t strike
lamp, go to next step.
5. Measure BP252 on AC IN CBA for +300Vdc. If missing check door switch, cable
from AC IN CBA to switch and AC IN PCB. If correct go to next step.
6. Monitor pin 2 of BT251 for Ballast ON command from Light Engine. If present
suspect Ballast. If missing suspect Light Engine. Pin 5 of BT251 starts at 3.3V
after power switch is pressed and drops to .18V when the Light Engine sends the
start command. No change on pin 5 indicates Light Engine is suspect, change
on pin 5 with no ballast start, ballast is suspect.

Note: Lamp may arc but not start. Pin 5 of BT251 is "LAMP LIT" and goes to 1.48V
when lamp is lit. If ballast strikes lamp but lamp won’t stay lit, suspect Lamp.

How to replace a tube holder or ballast


You can replace a ballast or tube holder if you're fairly familiar with wiring. 1) Turn off the power to the circuit. 2) Remove the tube and the cover plate that conceals the workings. 3) Disconnect or cut the wires to the tube holder or ballast and remove. 4) Strip 1/2" of insulation from the ends of the wires. 5) Mount the component and connect the wires with wire nuts. 6) Replace the cover and tube. 7) Turn the circuit back on. 8) Turn the switch on.
