Question about Philips 50PL9126D/37B 50" DLP TV

1 Answer

I own a Philips DLP television model 50pl9126d/37 I just replaced the lamp on it less than 6 months ago and the red lamp failure light came on. I have opened the back and can see the lamp starting up for about 5 sec but then it quits. I have read a number of issues but was wondering if anyone who has had this similar problem figured out the solution. I have pulled out the lamp ballast but as far as I can see there is no sign of damage. When the ballast was in I removed the lamp and could see the ballast "firing" several times but Im not sure what to do at this point. Thank you for any help!

You might want to with a flashlight and or small mirror want to look where the lamp faces at the color wheel---it must be intact and not missing any segments

typical color wheel:

Unplug unit and remove lower back panel should be 2 screws on each side and a few across the middle. Pull panel back and you should see a black box with metal folding handle. Remove the two left screws and pull out.

Phillps tv model number 50pl9126d/37 what is the red light mean


It depends on whether you are able to see a clear image or not. check the lamp first if its more than 2 yrs old you may need a new one, last one we checked with the problem you describe had a fan running slow. The fan nearest the lamp needs to run correctly or the tv will shut down. Good luck !

MY TV TURNS ON AND STAYS ON FOR 5SECONDS AND THEN THE SCREEN TURNS BLACK BUT CAN STILL HEAR THE SHOW PLAYING. TURNED IT OFF AND EVEN UNPLUGGED IT FOR ABOUT 5 MINUTES, BUT STILL THE SAME THING HAPPENS.


the lamp is likely bad .. they only work a few thousand hours .. then must be replaced .. your lamp can cost a couple of hundred (maybe even more if bought locally) .. here is one for less if you have someone handy that can change it.......
http://www.purelandsupply.com/50PL9126D-37-Bulb-Philips-DLP-TV-Bulbs.html
..... of course make sure power is off (unplugged) and make sure things are not hot .. there is usually a little cubby in the back where the lamp is located .. you an see what the lamp looks like at the above URL .. dont get finger prints on the bulb . that will cause it to crack when hot .. if you are unable to change the bulb then a call to philips service should do the trick. make sure you ask what the bulb replacement and labor will cost ..
