Bulb went out

Read that filter may help the bulb last longer. Is there a place to put a filter on so that dirt does not get into system.

This maybe a McGuyver thing. Last thing you want to do is block the air flow to cool down your TV set. I would blow out all the dust, get a HEPA filter for house ventilation, get a computer cooling fan. Cut and put the filter in front of the fan, make the fan blow in to the TV vent in the back, that way it blows clean air in and keeps dirty air out. I hope that's one good idea.

Where can I find a Ballast for HP ID5220 DLP TV?


It looks as if you have to return it personally, and have them fix it. I saw nothing on the HP ID5220 DLP TV in the ballast lists. Sorry, man. Wish I could be of more help. Maybe someone else has a better site, or connections, that can help you. Your best bet is to get professional help with someone, like the company that manufactures the hardware.

I have a Samsung HLT5075s. Last Sunday the Tv


Not the light engine. But it could be the power supply. I've seen a few than pass "dirt" power to the ballast and damage it. Have a peek at the ballast, there's a big 47uf, 450v capacitor on it. If it is swollen, it's a dead give away. You need both. I hope this was helpful.

Cracked LCD TV screen


The problem with this is it's not just glass -Liquid Crystal Display- it's a matrix of liquid crystal cells, the screen also has like individual pixel color filters as well all this placed between two sheets of polaroid coated glass. It isn;t just so easy as to replace it like a regulare tv screen. As with anything it could be repaired, I have read about, but cannot suggest anyone particular place because the repair involves putting material into the cracks then laser etching the grid back in. So if you can find someone who does that. Or ask you dealer about it. Sorry I could not give you a better solution.

Sony KDF-E50A10 stays on for 15-20 minutes then shuts off power standby light flashes green and turns back on. Replaced bulb about 6 months ago with sony bulb. Any ideas. Thanks


The reason this happens the most is because of the lamp being weak. I have not seen anything else cause this problem. You can varify this by turning the set off and wait until it shuts down totally.
with the Sony remote, press the display button, the #5 button,
volume down button, then power button. This puts you into the the factory error code mode. If you see the lamp code with multiple errors and no other errors shown, the lamp is the problem.
Most of Sonys lamps have a aprox life of 3000 hrs. Some last longer and some shorter.
I hope this helps,

Top half of screen going black.


I've seen this or something similar to this problem on an old lcd screen. The bulb haden't burned out but the system was no longer getting proper 5 volts to the processor chip that processed the image. I ended up desoldering the voltage regulator and soldering a new regulator in it's place it was one with the same amperage so I put a heatsink on it to reduce the chance of another failure.

My hitachi 50v720 bulb blew and the replacement doesn't fit


I believe the lamp you need is the UX21516. not the 21517
I have a 50VF820 and this is the lamp for it.
By the way my unit just hit the 3 years and the lamp just blew as well.

Hello bhudson153, Yes most certainly tv's should last longer than a year. What i would suggest is testing your outlet too see if it is putting out and test the tv in another room to see if thats that problem. If you still are having difficulties please post again.
Please post what you do and how you did it I look forward to your posts

Same problem as others. Sony KDF-E55A20-while watching TV, screen goes black and sound leaves too! Will come back on in a few seconds...but continues this cycle. The green light stays on.


You really need a tech to check the error codes recorded in the TV to be sure. You could have a bad lamp driver, but I would want to see if any error codes were recorded

Bulbs keep burning out


I would try a genuine sony replacement lamp. There are some reputable sellers on ebay selling them for a couple hundred dollars...Oh also, you say your TV is under warranty?

If it is under Sony's factory 1 year warranty, I would call them direct. If your on some sort of extended warranty plan, through a 3rd party company, tell them you want the genuine sony bulb. Put up a fight, and if that doesnt work, read the fine print for your 3rd party warranty. My extended 3rd party warranty states that if the TV fails 3 times during the extended warranty period, they will replace it with a new one as per their "Lemon" policy.
