Question about LG RU-44SZ51D 44" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
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.

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.

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.
