Sharp projection tv lamp replacement


Rear Projection Televisions are not like other televisions that can run maintenance-free for 20 years or more. They need to have their lamps changed on occasion, and most have air filters that need to be cleaned every month or two. Lamps typically last about 8,000 hours on most models high end models, some of the cheaper models last only 1,000-2,000 hours. Keep in mind however that some lamps won't make it all the way to their estimated life spans. If you operate your LCD or DLP TV in a warm environment that is not adequately ventilated, or at higher elevations, this can reduce lamp life. Failing to keep the air filter clean may reduce lamp life as well. And some lamps will just fail sooner than others--estimating average lamp life is not an exact science and testing methods vary greatly among manufacturers.
ere is a checklist of what to do to get the most out of your lamp:
  1. Check out the presets and select the setting with the lowest light output.
  2. Once you've done that adjust the brightness down to your liking. The lower the brightness the long the lamp will last.
  3. Check and clean the air filters on a monthly basis. Having a clean air filters means that your lamp has better airflow. Air is what is used to cool the lamp and the cooler your lamp runs the longer it will last.
Each owner's manual for a rear projection TV comes with instructions on how to replace the lamp. Here are the typical steps for replacing a lamp.
  1. Turn your TV off. Let it sit there for about 5 minutes to let the cooling fan help cool the lamp.
  2. Unplug your TV from the power let it sit about another 30 minutes. Even with the TV turned off power is still going to the lamp and the lamp receptacle can still be hot enough to burn you. Even if you think that the lamp is cool I recommend that you do not touch the receptacle.
  3. Usually the lamp has a cover that you will need to unscrew. Most manufactures use a Philips head screw for holding the cover shut. Unscrew the lamp cover.
  4. Unpackage the replacement lamp. Be careful not to tough the glass, as oil from your fingers can damage the lamp's surface.
  5. Pull the lamp out. Most lamps have a plastic tab or hoop on the handle that you can use to pull it out. Follow the owners manual for specific instructions on how to pull the lamp out. Make sure you do not touch the surrounding lamp housing if you just turned off the TV. It can burn you if it is hot.
  6. After the lamp has cooled, place it into the empty box of the replacement lamp. Never put the used lamp into a plastic bag.
  7. Using the guiding post also called "gutters" by some manufactures slide the lamp replacement lamp in pushing it until you hear a firm click.
  8. Screw the lamp cover back in.

FOLLOW this steps and fix it. God bless you

  • 1
    Power down the TV. Let it cool down for several minutes to avoid touching anything hot. There are many parts inside the TV that could be hot.

  • 2
    Unplug the TV and all media devices attached to it. Let the TV sit again for several more minutes just to be safe. The lamp receptacle and other components could still be hot.




  • 3
    Unscrew the back cover of your TV with a screwdriver. Have someone help if the cover is big. The lamp's housing unit on most TVs is located towards the bottom. Refer to your TV Owner's Manual for specific instructions.

  • 4
    Unscrew the lamp's housing unit with your screwdriver. Take your time to avoid damaging the housing unit. You'll see the lamp once you open the housing unit.

  • 5
    Use a soft cloth to unscrew the lamp out of the housing unit. There's a possibility the lamps- could still be hot. The cloth will help protect your hand.

  • 6
    Screw the replacement lamp into the housing unit with the same soft cloth. The oils from your fingers could ruin a rear projection TV bulb.

  • 7
    Reattach the lamp's housing unit and TV back cover. Make sure no wires are loose or get caught when screwing the back cover on.

  • 8
    Attach all media devices like cable or satellite boxes. You should now be able to watch your TV with a brand new picture.

I have researched the owners manual and it states to recheck the lamp door and make sure the lamp is seated properly and that the door is closed tight. I can email you the manual if you do not have one.

Red light on the front lamp button is blinking. And tv doesn't turn on


Replace the Lamp. There is a lamp door you need to open in order to take out the old lamp and put in the new one. This usually takes less than 30 minutes and is made to be user accessible. Check your owner's manual for step by step directions. If you have lost it, you can go to the Sony website to download one for free.

T.V will automatically turn on and off during the first 10 minute


With projection TV's the lamp is usually the cause for cycling issues. The lamp power supply (ballast) monitors the current drawn by the lamp and adjusts voltage to keep the current at a specific value, if the ratings fall outside of spec the TV will cycle power and attempt to correct the anomolie. If this happens too many times within a specific time frame the TV can refuse to turn on and will indicate an error code. Don't put the TV through too many retrys or you could damage the ballast too.

Lamps can cost between $200 and $400. The ballast can cost anywhere from $150 to $250 approximately. Usually the manufacturer of the TV will sell you a new bulb, but electronics suppliers often sell them for less. Most lamps are owner replaceable and easy to do, consult your owners manual.

In-home servicers can base their labor charge on the size of the TV. The larger the TV, the higher the labor cost. Do it yourself and save!

Hope this helps.
