Where do I buy ballasts?

I have a Sony VPL-S600U which has a bad ballast. Where can I buy a new one? I have not had much luck searching the Internet.

  • Unless you are a certified technician you cannot order non-user-servicable parts, such as this ballast board. The site won't even allow you to see what is available without credentials, displaying the following message instead: "You must be Authorized/Certified by the manufacturer to repair their product and have a valid login id in order to access service parts."

Ballast on samsung hlp4663w

The transformer can't damage the new lamp. Faulty transformers normaly take out the driving transistors or the fusible link in the power supply, if these are good then just replace the lamp. Espacially if you know the lamp is bad (test it by swapping with the others if unsure)

Sony vpl-cx10 ,,powers up but no light

If the new lamp didn't make a difference, it is most likely your lamp ballast that needs to be replaced.

VPL-HS60 Scene Dimming

Hi 3mad

This is quite a sticky one as this could either be the lamp or the Ballast ( lamp's powersupply )

And the bad thing is that the only way to be certain , would be to first replace the lamp and if this continues the Ballast as well.

I would suggest you to replace the lamp first , as this is never a waste , you could always keep it as a spare and 99% of the time it is the lamp will give this kind of problem.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya !

Hi there

You should first check if there is any visible damage on your lamp. If not then it could be a faulty Ballast ( lamp powersupply )
