Got a Mitsubishi vs-8070, everything works fine then the screen turns off after about 15 minutes sound still works fine. Help.

Does this unit have a projection bulb in the back end of the set? Just based on my experience with a friend's 65 inch rear projection TV, there might be an indicator light on the front panel that may blink if the rear projection bulb is failing. If there is a failing bulb it could account for the screen going black with everything else just fine, after the bulb gets heated up in 15 minutes.

Clean bulbs on a D56W136D

Hello. Here are the steps to a perfect cleaning job:
  1. Power down TV and unplug all cables attached to back of TV, including TV power cable. You never want to risk touching components inside the TV that could be hot, including a rear-projection bulb.
  2. 2 Unscrew and remove back cover of TV. Have someone help you if the TV is big or back cover is heavy. Most TVs will unscrew easily, but refer to your TV owners manual for specific instructions.
  3. 3 Locate and unscrew bulbs housing unit. Your owners manual can again be used to find specific instructions on how to properly unscrew bulbs housing unit.
  4. 4 Clean bulb with soft cloth and cotton swabs. Never let your bare hand touch the bulb. The oils on your hands can cause the bulbs to deteriorate prematurely. Be gentle with the cotton swabs to avoid breaking or cracking anything.
  5. 5 Reattach bulbs housing unit.
  6. 6 Reattach the back cover and have someone help you again if you needed help taking the back cover off.
  7. 7 Attach all media devices and power cords.
  8. 8 Power on the TV and begin watching.

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

Recently changed my bulb for my Wega LCD KF-42SX300U TV. Since then it is turning itself off, with no particular pattern. It can come straight on and last for a few seconds, or last the entire evening....

This is a classic case of a faulty lamp(even though it is new). Possible that it is a ballast(lamp power sply) problem but it is more likely that the lamp doesnt quite meet the required specifications. Your lamp may be a Non-OEM or a refurb. You should try to get it exchanged with the vendor you bought it from. is a great source for bulbs.
good luck

Panasonic PT50LC14 Power issue

We have a PT-50LC14. We replaced the lamp 6 months ago with a TY-LA1000 bulb we bought from a company online (not directly from Panasonic) and it worked for 6 months. Then the TV started turning off on it's own...sometimes it would not come back on for an hour or so. We called the lamp company and we luckily had 1 day left on our 6 month warranty!! They sent us a replacement bulb and the TV would never power on. It would try to power up, but the bulb would never ignite. The power light would flash and then the lamp light would flash every 5 seconds. I had a friend that has the same type of TV and she ordered her bulb directly from Panasonic. I borrowed her lamp and it powered right up. We then called the online company and they sent us yet another replacement bulb, and I tried it today and it works. It seems like these TVs are very particular about the type of bulb used. Next time, we will be ordering ours directly from Panasonic and just paying the extra $100. We have been without our big screen for 2 very long months! I had called a local tv repair shop, called Panasonic directly, and read through countless internet forums, and I thought we were going to have to replace the ballast or get a ballast repair kit and start messing with the circuit board.

Problem is the bulb.
I had this exact same problem.  Even though the bulb appears to be good, it is drawing too much current to run properly, and the ballast is shutting it down.

I have a viore monitor ipt46dl30 which just went black but we can still hear the voice.. help?

I'm in the process of ordering a replacement bulb for a friends set right now. The information below is exactly what's needed to get the correct bulb for this DLP television.

TV Make: Viore

TV Model: IPT46DL30 (Confirmed to be on TV label)

Bulb/Lamp Model: SHP70 (This number is right at the top of the bulb/lamp, where the wires connect)

Housing Model: 140-1027 (This is also known as the Ballast which houses the bulb/lamp)

Now, I've managed to locate the bulb/lamp from a few different sites. Unfortunately, there doesn't appear to be a reputable manufacturer making aftermarket bulbs for this DLP model. The original bulb type is all we have to look forward to. The cheapest price that I've found so far is $120.00. I have also found these particular bulbs for as high as $295.00. Needless to say, I'm going with the former. - $120.00 (Buying) - $277.90 (Too much) - $295.00 (Too much & very skeptical)
