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:
Check out the presets and select the setting with the lowest light output.

and clean the air filters on a monthly basis. Having a clean air

cool the lamp and the cooler your lamp runs the longer it will last.

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!
