LG RU44SZ51D halogen bulb

Has anyone changed the bulb in their LG RU44SZ51D projection DLP TV. We were watching last night we heard a pop and the screen went black. We found out today that it is most likely the bulb since the TV was purchased in 2005 and not covered under the extended warranty. We found a place that sells bulbs we just need some direction in how to go about changing it ourselves.

But a bad light bulb would not, as far as I can tell, cause the redness. When yours went, what if anything was left on the screen? Thanks.

Rear projection TVs require a light bulb (found on the right hand side of TV behind a small screw fixed panel) and this, like any bulb needs replacing from time to time. You need to get it changed by a repair guy or get a bulb yourself and do it. They're quite expensive though, £200 last I heard I think.

On my unit there's a panel on the lower right hand side, remove the 2 screws with a screw driver. Inside you should see a compartment that is metal and has a thin metal handle. Remove the Black screw on the top left hand side. Then pull the unit out with the handle. Inside the unit holds the bulb, just replace and go through these steps in reverse to place back together.

SOURCE: 42 inch LG Plasma TV - Lost picture

Hi , I recently had the same problem which I was determined to fix . So I did a few weeks of research to find that it was the Y SUS board which burns out. I'm sure you realized that the TV gets hot. Personally I think this is why. circuit boards don't like heat and I've learned that the cooling fans are a joke. I replaced the board and got my picture back. I proved the fan theory because after the screen started to act up. I placed a cooling fan near the vent holes on top and the problem cleared right up,It also helps if you lower the brightness which helps out on the heat situation.I will soon be adding a fan with a temp. sensor. This shoud help if your screen has lines when you initially turn the cool TV on.then I have Some other costless solutions. Hope this helped these are great TV's and like our cars we maintain them not throw them away..................................Mr Wiseman

That sounds like the lamp bulb blew and you will need to replace it. You can find ads on this web site that sell DLP bulbs at a decent price and you can install it yourself, or you can call 1-800-samsung to find the nearest service center.

LG 50" 2 1/2 yrs old. Watching it last night and there was a pop (like a light bulb breaking) and now tv does not work. please help


it is probably a dlp and it has a lamp in it. You can replace the lamp yourself just be careful when changing it that you do not touch the lamp itself. If you have the owners manual it should tell you how to change it.

Replace projection bulb in our LG TV Model RU44SZ51D.


There is an access door on the back with four screws, then the lamp inside has 2 screws and then will slide out. Most places will sell you just the raw bulb, not the whole lamp assembly, so this is a little harder to change. If you can find the whole lamp assembly you can easily change this yourself.

Tv went out after loud pop and has clicking noise does not turn on


If you have a Sony DLP, then the loud pop you heard is your lamp.  The lamps last approx. 4K-6K viewing hours.  Read your manual for replacement part number to reorder and very simple to replace yourself.
