    model # is pj-4000en
    i would like to find a replacement bulb, if it isnt too expensive. $300+ to fix a 25 year old tv, sounds insane- can almost buy a new lcd, or plasma for that....

First, without the exact model number, the replacement part can not be found. Second, if this is a CRT based projection set, then the cost of the replacement CRT will likely be in the $300+ range (if it is still available). Please make sure that all other possibilities have been exhausted as to the cause of the failure before attempting to replace the CRT. It is rare for the CRT to be the problem. It can happen, but is not common. Please update this with the model number and I will investigate further. Thanks, Dan

    As far as I can tell, parts are no longer available for the model number you have listed. The only possible course of action for you at this point would be to locate a service center that used to service these units. They may have a replacement part still in stock. Given its age, I doubt it, but you can try.



    Good luck,

The old projector TV's are using 3 lamps for Red Green Blue....in your case the Green lamp stopped working....either the Green lamp burned or the lamp board is defective.

My tv mitsubishi wd-60735 turns on for about 2 min. then shuts off and red lamp light turns on,,,The lamp is only 3 months old.. Do I just need to replace bulb again or is it something else???


Don't know if this applys to you but if you have purchased anything but Osram or Philips replacement lamp for your DLP tv then this is probably your problem.. The generic is VERY tempting in this recession but in this case generic is poison to your dlp tv... i have a Mitsubishi 60735 and went thru 2 generic bulbs when my tv kept shutting down on it's own and the lights on front would flash, i could cut it back on for 10 minutes then flicker and shut down again ..well since the bulb was new i thought it may be defective so i got is exchanged for another one ... after all of the post i have seen how much repairs were going to cost on dlp sets no matter what the problem was ..i was ready to chunk the tv out the door when the second lamp was doing the same thing.....!! well a last ditch effort to save my tv before i trashed it or taking it apart to dissect it.. was to buy a brandname lamp ... in my case i purchased a Philips ..it cost twice as much =/ ..i could just return it if it didn't work.. well it was the generic lamps that was causing trouble.. the brandname worked perfectly .. i am just glad the generic lamp didn't do any damage to my TV!!! I have done further research on the generic lamps and realized that the damage it could have done was not worth the money i saved when i purchesed it... Generic is a great deal In some cases (household cleaners, etc..) but in this case GET THE NAME BRAND!!!! the only name brands i know of for these lamps are Philips or Osram/Sylvania.. hope this helps others from this headache. Do your research don't by generic lamp replacements, your DLP set cost to much to risk it.

Hitachi projection tv quit


Pls check that model number........the problem description does not match that of a 1999 crt proj tv.........I believe yours is a newer lcd projection around 4 or 5 yr old?? Lamp light flashing on any brand is indicative of the lamp not lighting . The lamp is the most likely cause,but the ballast board can cause this as well..................you should see an access door refer to owner book of the correct model and you can replace yourself...........it may cost around $200 and avaiolable at encompass parts .com Hitach distributor

Hitatchi 52" rear projection TV has blue spot in middle of screen


Hello :
I suggest u retrace you the steps u took to replace your lamp make sure no foriegn objects got on the prism where the light shines throung the optics engine, if you remove the lamp compartment througly. If you had a perfect picture prior to replacing the lamp, then retracing your steps you might find something that does not belone. One final note: Did you purchase the right lamp 120watts anything higher than this wattage could damage your optics engine. I suggest never vacuuming the compartment because particals fly around from the suction and could get on the glass of the color wheel asembly.

rear projection TV is light emitted and therefore can be fixed by a lamp replacement. I know the replacement's can in some cases be more expensive than a new model. Search the web for lamp replacement based on your TV model to get an idea.

If you go to this link they have any Picture tube you need for your model and they include instructions on how to remove the old Tube and install the new one. Your model has picture tubes instead of lamps. Leave them an email with your model number and which CRT (picture Tube) youre needing they respond quickly. Heres the link.

Sony KDF-42WE655, lamp burrning out and melting.


I am having the same problem with my kdf42we655 model. except I also have the blue/pink blobs all over the screen. Sony came last week to evaluate and were pointing to the amount of dust in the set... What a crock... Dont know what theylle do yet but I am ready to get a lawyer and fight this. They know there is a problem and dont want to back it up... Ill never buy Sony again.. And btw. if your buying a new tv and you a sony fan,. look at samsung.. They are building the new lcd screens for Sony...At least Samsung stand behind there product and costs a lot less than paying for the Sony name..
