Like stated before--May be another bad blub, especially if you used a generic or Neolux one. A phillips bulb WILL work right. Mits sets do NOT like generic bulbs !!

Replaced the bulb is the ballast a separate piece? if so how do I change that. Had a repair man here he looked at blub,fuses,fan. cost me 180 for him to say blub which was not bad.

when replacing the bulb, it will be best to replace its ballast too. Replace the ballast. The charge quoted by the technician is moderate.

How to replace licence plate lights on 2002

There are 3 bulbs in the tail light assembly. Make note which one is burned out. Unscrew the whole tail light assembly; there are 2 screws that hold it to the body. Then unplug the wiring harness which will free the assembly. You then unscrew the assembly from the lens. The blubs will be visible, push and twist to free the bad bulb. Take the bulb to an auto parts store and get a new one.
Push and turn the new bulb into the socket. Attach the wiring harness, you can see if the blub is working at this stage (try brakes, lights and signal) If so, screw the lens back onto the housing and then the whole assembly back onto the body.

No picture.

Most likely you need a new projection lamp. The "strange sound" you hear is most likely the lamp trying to fire.After awhile, the set"gives up' and shuts down. There is a small door in the rear, and the lamp is behind this. It pulls out, after removing a couple of slotted screws. The bulb inside of the housing is what goes bad--the housing does NOT need to be replaced, unless you get an "original"(read:: more expensive) mits lamp.

But a "generic' is available to replace the bulb in the housing ,Probably a P22-150, or 180 lamp, about a $300 repair, if you have someone come out--or, if you are mechanically inclined, you could replace the bulb from the old housing(EASY to do), yourself, and save about half of that, or perhaps more.

Listen closely. The tv should make a high pitch whine as it turns on. If it does wait and see if it tries this a few times. If yes then check the bulb, I have seen cases where the lamp shoves the power connector back into the set. If the tv starts with a grown or heavy vibration noise, then your color wheel may have broken and needs replaced.

How to change out blub

panel on the back of tv, opposite side of inputs. 6 screws takes a special screwdriver. I used needle nose plyers. once in the back, unscrew 2 stainless steel screws to take out black housing. has your bulb. make sure you have the serial number off the back of your TV at the end of your serial number you will find either a Z or J. DONT GET THE WRONG BULB! taking the bulb out of the housing is different. you can either take a drill with a small bit to get the nuts out, or purchase the screwdriver called a T-8 TROX screwdriver.
