The ballast board may need to be replaced as well as the lamp. The set should give an error code such as blinking lights from the front button assembly. You need to count the blinks and take note if there is a pause between blinks. (example) an error code of 34 will go blink blikk blink, pause, blink blink blink blink. This process may repeat itself a few times.

SOURCE: DLP Lamp went out, order new one and installed, still no picture

There may be a power supply or cooling fault for the lamp. This would have to be serviced by a service rep for your set.

I have no idea of the cost of the bulb for your set. But I can tell you that from what I see, if you use the set a lot of hours it will become very expensive to use. Because of the heat and cooling problems, the failure rate of the support circuitry for projection TV sets is higher than the normal sets.

I would suggest to service the set, put it up for sale, and get a Plasma or LCD type set. Over the long run LCD and Plasma sets are very maintenance free. Take an exended warranty with the set for insurance just in case something major goes on it. Over its lifetime it will still come out cheaper and more dependable than a projection set, and it will have much sharper pictures.

SOURCE: New Lamp will not come on

I suspect thermo fuse near lamp or ballast or light engine. In that order , first double check lamp is in tight and covers are on correct there are switches on cover for lamp.

1 thermo 150.00
2 ballast 250;00
3 light engine 600.00

Get a tv service center to come over and check. it would be worth the service call ask him what he charges for road call , at least know you have price and part information.


thanks doctor video

SOURCE: we have purchase a new lamp bulb. When we

This is a classic example of a bad lamp. I realize that you replaced the lamp but the new one could be defective. Put the old lamp back in if it is available and worked at all before you replaced it. See what the set does then and if the red flashing light goes away. If you can't do that and know positively that the lamp is good then it could be the lamp ballast board. It is available at http://www.encompass.com and is not very hard to replace. Unplug the set, remove the lower back, you should see the board near the lamp. R&R the board, reassemble, and you should be done. If you need more help let me know. Thanks for using FixYa and for the generous rating.

SOURCE: lamp burned out so I replaced the lamp with a new

make sure the lamp is fully inserted and making good connection. a lot of people will forget to close the door, the tv will not function with the door open. close the door fully. unplug the tv for 2 minutes and then plug in and let it boot up for 30 seconds before you push the power button. toshiba is notorious for malfunctioning if you start hitting buttons right after you plug it back in, make sure you wait.

if this still wont fix your issue, look for the flashing leds on the front of the set. they will eventually give you an error code to go with. the tv can take up to 1 minute to come on and will try 7 times before spitting out an error.

How to change bulbs in a safescan 65


read your owner manual section troubleshooting or how to replace it.
God bless you
Rear-Projection TVs have a lamp, which picks up the picture and projects it on the TV screen. A burned-out or connected lamps are two of the most common problems for Rear-Projection TVs. First, you will want to confirm the bulb is still good. If the bulb is bad then then replace it immediately. Second consult your user manual and verify the lamp and lamp cover are installed properly. Most Rear-Projection TVs have warning light which notify you when there are lamp problems. Again consult the user's manual to see what each light means.

Thomson 50DSZ644. Just replaced the Lamp great picture but burned smell.. after few house it smelled verry bad..and i turned off. now when i turn on the tv the picture in middle is dark and still thi


should have unplugged it when you noticed the smell.

UNPLUG and remove and look at lamp you installed--is something in the housing where lamp goes melted? I hope you did not touch the face of the bulb with your hand or fingers.

What ever is wrong find it before trying to use set again.

Do I need to order the housing with the lamp after burn-out?


you can order just the bulb then install that in your housing. Being careful not to touch the new bulb with your bare hands as the oils from your finger tips will cause the lamp to fail prematurely.

Blinking red light that says bulb


It means your lamp is burnt out and you have to replace the lamp with a new lamp. When you install the new lamp dont touch the glass lens part at the front of lamp or the oil from your finger will burn the new lamp and it wont work.

Sony Wega KF-42E200A Projection Bulb


New bulb is just fine.
3 blink shows that lamp cover after replacement of bulb in TV is not fixed properly or not seated well in its position.
Put new bulb and carefully place back lamp cover in its position because lamp cover will press tinny safety switch inside that will send signal to system control of TV that lamp is installed properly.
Turn On TV and get vivid picture of Sony.
Thanks.
