Lamp melted connectors inside tv

Lamp connectors overheated and melted that plug into tv, can the connetors be replaced? and where would I get them, that's the only damage I can see. The wires are still there but the ends are ruined. Bought a lamp on ebay, bad decision on my part. Where the bulb connects to the tv plugs were completely melted, wasn't a pretty scene and the smell!!! Thank You

SOURCE: Lamp problem or not?

2 years and three months but, what counts are the hours that it was on. Your software only really effects the way the TV interacts with HDMI inputs and really won't effect much else. The manufactures only expect 4-5000 hours on the lamp. Some go less some go more. You need to replace that lamp most likely.

SOURCE: New Lamp Replacement, still a No Go.

I had a similar problem when I change out my lamp - it would come on for 5 seconds then go out. I looked at the DM board, but the capacitors looked good. I did notice that two capacitors (3300uf 10V) were bulding on top. I replaced them and to my complete surprise, the TV worked perfectly again. I used Techman's suggestion on looking at the boards, but the diagrams and pictures weren't accurate. I just used my intuition and took it apart making sure I marked all the wires ( a ton of them!) appropriately. If you are mechanically inclined, it takes some patience, but isn't that difficult. It cost me $12.00 to fix, plus buying the solder and de-soldering guns. Good Luck.

OSRAM VS. PHILLIPS
This is about buying replacement bulbs for the WD62327 TVs.I dont know about the other models but I purchased a PHILLIPS replacement bulb and it worked for about a week and then those dumb flashing lights and no TV. I did some research and others were saying that you had to replace some condensers. Shop would do it for 600 dollars..Well i sent the bulb back and bought an OSRAM replaement bulb. The TV is now working perfect.

Ballast to lamp connection cable melted on one side


The Ballast plug melted due to age of the TV. as the plastic gets old it gets brittle and can crack with barely any force. The pins then do not seat and the arc that should be in the lamp takes place in the connector. I have seen this so many times. fortunately it is very easy to replace the connector is you know how to use wire crimps and can source an old female plug. eBay is a good source. you can buy a used ballast from any model that has the same connector. Then cut off the new plug and splice it onto your old wires with but-crimps and shrink tubing.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Please read carefully!
FixYourDLP.com has identified a potential hazard that may severely damage your Samsung TV with lamp code BP96-01653A!
Samsung DLP lamp units, model BP96-01653A may fail due to improper insertion. We discovered this while doing some tests on these enclosures. If you don’t install the BP96-01653A firmly into the TV, the housing connector may cause damage to both the ballast and the lamp—or even worse a fire.
You’ll know immediately if there’s something wrong because as soon as you turn your television on, and there’s white smoke emanating from the back of your television.
You should shut your television off immediately and open your lamp door and pull out that lamp. Inspect it and hopefully, you’ve just burned the connectors to the ballast, and not the ballast itself. Our testing has only caused the connectors to burn or melt, but don’t take any chances—we’ve never seen a fire, but we also don’t rule out the possibility of fires either.
Here is a correct installation method and the reasons why a bad installation will cause the connectors to burn:
IMPORTANT SAFETY WARNING
Regarding the installation of a BP96-01653A lamp unit into a Samsung DLP Television.
Installation
Step 1
install_images_bp96-01653a_01.jpg
Figure A – Open panel, lamp unit removed
You must install the lamp unit to fit snug with the ballast connector.
To do this, align the lamp unit with the female ballast connector facing down, on the bottom side of the enclosure, then slide the lamp unit until it snaps into place. Check to make sure the unit is firmly inside the television.
Step 2 install_images_bp96-01653a_02.jpg
Figure B – Snapping the lamp into place
Snap the wire brackets in tightly by lifting the bottom set up to meet with the top bracket. The wire bracket keeps the lamp and lamp enclosure seated properly to reduce the risk of fire.
when installed properly, the unit should sit secure and slightly elevated from the floor of the compartment.
Step 3 install_images_bp96-01653a_03.jpg
Figure C – Close back panel securely
Once the lamp is firmly secure, close the back panel to engage the blue lamp door sensor switch. Leaving the door open will prevent the television from starting up.

Important Damage or Fire Warning
Because of the nature of the ballast or lamp driver, there is a risk of damage or fire to your television set.
The ballast ignites the lamp with up to 20kV of electricity to arc the gas tube inside. If the ballast does not have a firm connection with the lamp unit, the arc will occur between the ballast connectors (from the ballast to the lamp), which may cause a fire, or melt your plastic connectors. Indications of this are a rapid clicking sound, a burning smell, and/or a non-functioning lamp. If you improperly install the lamp into your television causing a ballast or lamp failure, this may void your warranty for the television or the lamp product.

I have a mitsubishi tv model wd 60638 I changed the lamp. Tv works fine for about 20 minutes then I start to smell like something is burning then picture starts to flicker, what could could cause this


You have a bad connector in the lamp. Stop running the TV immediately and contact the company you purchased the lamp from. this is common in older DLP tvs but not in one 5 years old unless you have a lot of hours on it. the connector can crack and arc inside the plug and then melt and smell terrible. It usually very repairable if you can get a ballast for it. the plug is part of the ballast.

T.v.says lamp not working


If the display indicates then it is possible that the lamp has failed or that the Power to the lamp is cut off. You will need to check the status of the lamp and also the lamp connectors, the supply from the power.
Check to see if the cooling fan is clogged and so has reset the processor with a error. If so clean the filter to reset.

Sony KF-50WE610 flahing red light (6 blinks)


Jeff, did you look at the Sony web site? They had a problem with 9 different TV models that were from 2003 and 2004, KF-42WE610, KF-50WE610, KF-60WE610 and 6 other models.
This is what it states: It haas come to our attention that a limited number of Grand WEGA rear projection TV's may exhibit warping to the lamp access door. In rare cases, some additional components may also become damaged as a result. and so on........
You probably have some components melted on the inside around the lamp. I have a 42 inch and I just replaced the lamp at Christmas and the door was melted shut. This is the second lamp that I have replaced, the door was starting to melt the first time. They never sent me anything about this problem, and as of today I am still trying to work something out with them. The repair shop who has it told me that it can't be repaired. The parts that are melted are not in stock and they don't make them anymore. They are supposed to get back with me and make me some kind of offer.
They will only fix this problem through March 31, 2009.
