You must follow the owners manual instructions exactly. It is an important step in replacing the lamp. Also, you must use the exact lamp given by the owners manual; do not use substitute because they often don't work or burn out quickly. Get the owners manual from the Internet with google search if you don't have it anymore.

How do I know if I need a new lamp?

Yes, if you have not replaced the lamp since you purchased this TV.
Lamps usually last about 6000 hours.
I've seen lamps last much longer than 6000Hrs, it all depends on the usage.
Remove the lamp from the TV and do a visual inspection, see if there's a crack on the glass or the bulb.
If the TV is few years old then the Lamp may be bad.

Buy original Lamp: 800 638-3328

DO NOT BUY the cheap lamp from ebay

Good luck to you.

Sony kf-ws60s1 front red light flashes 6 times after lamp replacement. Need thermal fuse part number

your issue has nothing to do with "thermal switch". while you have replaced the lamp, you could lose a piece of plastic hardware, in front of the lamp housing. It pushes auxiliary interlock switch, right under the front of the lamp compartment. If you take lamp out, use flashlight and shine inside. There is a little switch at the bottom. Try to make the lamp housing push it, without breaking anything. you could get "generic" lamp with housing, which is not correct. Anyway, that's the deal. Also: don't forget to install lamp door and turn the handle clockwise! there is another switch. I've seen people who forget to put that door back! Really!
good luck,

Runs about 15 minutes and shuts off

hello!are you sure, there is no "off" timer involved? or "sleep timer" getting pushed on remote control? If not: D.L.P. or L.C.D. projectors might have the lamp on a brink of life. Heats up, then quits. May be the picture was quite dim for a while? time to replace the lamp! get lam with housing! don't try to be smart...! It's very simple task to replace the first, rather than save a 10 bucks and get things messed up. I've seen it many times! You need to know "how to" for bare lamp. no need to special knowledge to replace lamp with housing. Just locate the lamp door, unscrew the door, then lamp and go ahead with installation. If you have an old fashion CRT(picture tube) projector, that's a major job! It might shut down due to numerous issues. As of the faulty parts or solder joints or both. there is no such a remedy for a "big screen TV", unless somebody knows exact cause, make, model, etc.Good luck,Alex.

I have a Mitsubishi WD-62627 DLP. It is six years old. I have had to replace the lamp cartridge twice in the past 18 months. In the past when the lamp failed the light on front of the TV would turn red....

this sounds silly but I had the same problem . due to heat and wear and tear. Make sure the vented air holes are not blocked by dust and the back of the TV is in a well ventilated area where air can circulate.You can use a paint brush and compressed air blowing the debri away from the inside circuitry.

Problem concerns Samsung HL-S5087W. All of a sudden, TV goes through 3 startup cycles and shuts down resulting in 3 blinking lights on front panel. What I've done: Completely cleaned inside of...


3 blinking led light at the front panel is an error code for lamp malfunction. If you've already replaced the bulb and yet the symptoms remain the same, then high chance that the fault came from the ballast board because the supply voltage is present.

Confirm if the bulb will lit upon powering on the unit. Open the lamp cover, bypass the lamp cover switch by putting tape to make it in closed position (making it still the lamp cover is attached to the housing) and then power on the unit. Check if the bulb will ignite or will light up, if not, you have to replaced the ballast board.

Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

Error e000202 0001

This is a scanning lamp error. Try replacing the lamp but you may need the lamp inverter circuit board the lamp plugs into. I've had trouble matching the connector of the lamp with the circuit board. Canon decided to change the connector on the newer lamps and they don't match the older circuit boards.

Hi, since you have located the burnt lamp, all you need to do is to unscrew the burnt lamp and replace the new one by screwing it in.....
You only need to unscrew to remove the lamp and if you cannot remove by unscrewing because it is stuck in, then you need the assistance of an electrical tech to help remove with his pliers....
