Lamp vs Ballast

This is to help explain the short lives of Lamps.

WARRANTY: If a lamp fails within the first year replace Lamp and Ballast.
If Lamp explodes do not replace Ballast only lamp, but if lamp didn’t explode replace both.

If you experience more than one Lamp failure within one year of use replace the Ballast.

The Panasonic Brand offers a Ballast repair kit (LSUC0022), it only works about 20% of the time.

I would not recommend this replacement kit. It will get you past the 30-45 day warranty period in most cases but it will not be the proper FIX to the customer’s unit and they will only call you back or (most important) call another Service Center.

I have experienced maybe 100 customers that had other Service Companies come out and only replace the Lamp. When the Lamp and Ballast should have been replaced.

I hope this helps the Customers and the Technicians in their judgment.

If I was redundant I apologize, just trying to help.

Good Day, big IRISH

My son turned on my 1080pi tv last night and heard a loud pop and then smelt a burning smell. Do I need to take this to a repair shop or can I fix it myself? What would the cost be?

Something bursted out inside your tV. Probably it will be a mains filter capacitor. If this type of capacitor bursts out, it will spill the electrolyte liquid all over the surroundings, which is an electrically conductive material. So never turn ON this TV until it has been throughly cleaned and repaired. Power supply board inside your Tv is faulty. OK.

Powers off and power lamp flashes five times... pauses and flashes again...

A "5" blink error on your set refers to one of two problems:

1. The ballast circuit board

2. The lamp.

If it were under warranty, I would replace both, and guarantee myself that the set would be fixed.

Sometimes, when the lamp fails, the ballast throws a "5" error. However, it is possible that is both parts are in need of replacement.

Pull your lamp and take a look at it. Is the surface cloudy? Is the lamp imploded? Is the filament broken?

If so, replace the lamp first. See how it holds up.

Samsung hln4365w no powerup flashing lamp & temp. can i repair myself & where do i get parts?????

There should be a lamp code sticker on the left side of the tv.bp96-00224c or bp96-oo224a are the part #'s for the 2 lamps used on this set,but you need the right one or it will blow prematurely because of 2 different ballasts used.

No summary necessary...nailed my problem to the letter.

The ballast board is stand alone. There is a bad capacitor in the power supply. It may be 820uf, but look for any that have the tops bulged or leaking juice.
