55PL9223 Questions about Lamp

I have the opportunity to pick up a Philips 55PL9223 for cheap, but the guy says the lamp needs to be replaced. What can I expect to pay for the lamp, and does anyone have an approximate cost. A source would be nice also.
Any other opinions on this TV? Good or bad, I want to hear them all. Any long term cost issues that I should know about?

Assuming the TV works once I replace the lamp, what would it be worth?

Lamp could run 200-325 would be my guess. check out ebay for one and get an extra if its a good price. lamps are common for going out.

How to replace the lamp for Panasonic projector

If you bought a lamp from eBay then its most likely not a real brand bulb. The PT-AE1000 uses an ET-LAE1000 lamp that should have an Osram, Philips or Matsushita brand bulb. If you do not see PVIP, M or UHP on the bulb then its most likely your problem. Cheap lamps are not worth the money. They fail early and end up costing you more money in the long run. Panasonic Projector Lamp

These folks sell lamps that always work. I would return the eBay lamp and buy one that will work. Their support and customer service are one of the best in the industry.

I have a mitsubishi WD- 6oc9 tv when i power my TV i get a steady blinking light and no picture. my husband replaced the lamp about six months ago. dont think thats the issue. need ideas on how to repair.

Sounds like lamp needs replaced. If you purchased a cheap lamp from ebay or your installer did, that is about all they will last. On your next lamp buy an osram or Philips lamp. They are a lot better quality.

It all depends on the type of lamp and manufacturer u has, some brands are compatible that is always a good thing.

LG, Zenith, Mitsubishi, RCA, Samsung, and some Panasonic they use. Philips so you can save money we just need to know if the model is compatible.

The cost is around $85.00 the cheap ones $114.00 Philips and like $299.00 again depends on the brand and ho is the one that sales!

There are a lot of good online stores that can send you a lamp usually for a lower price here are a few links that I can found if you need them.

good luck..

Can i change lamp light or should it be serviced

You can change the lamp yourself. Lamps are cheap if that's your problem. You need a Philips for a Sony TV. has them because they're an authorized dealer.

The tv shuts off and the lamp light comes on

This would be due to a lamp outage you will have to replace your lamp in your tv. They are not cheap items to replace either. Check a search engine on your pc for your particular model of television and lamp replacement and you should come up with a price list.

Some lamps last longer and are better then others however it just depends. If you have anymore questions please feel free to come back and I shall do my best and answer.
