Re: replacing bulb

Looking at the screen, the lower part of the TV there is about a 6-7 inch band and following that aroundto the back edge you'll find the retainig screws. Remove the screws and pry the band off the botton portion of the Tv.
About center you'll see the lamp cover. Remove it and take a hex key to remove the tension screw inside and slide out the lamp housing.
You can purchase a new lamp and housing or replace just the lamp at a less expensive cost. We use LampSource, good quality and reasonable price.
Reverse the steps to install and replace lower cover. Don't forget to go into your menu and reset your lamp hours to zero and you're done...

How to replace bulb?

Either under the front long cover--or on the left side. Most HIt LCD projos use a P22H 120 watt bulb, get a phillips bulb and you will be happy. Ebay sells these all over the place.

How do i change the bulb

Bulb TVs are very big. In most cases the TV will give a warning that alerts you it's time to change the bulb. Do not touch the glass part of the bulb, as oil from your hands will reduce the life span of your bulb. Replacing the bulb is a simple process that will take a few minutes. Here is how to do it.
Step 1: Read User Manual Make sure that you have your user manual with you when working on your TV. Most electrical appliances will have guides on how to deal with replacements of parts and where to get the replacements and what specifications to look for. Read the user manual in depth before attempting the project of replacing the bulb. Step 2: Disconnect Power When working with any electrical appliance, always switch off and disconnect the power. Electrical shocks can cause injury or even death. Step 3: Open Bulb Door At the back of the TV there will be a bulb door which will usually be near the power cord, depending on the make of the TV. Once you locate the door, proceed to open either by sliding it open or unscrewing it as may be required. Step 4: Remove and Replace Bulb Once the door is open, unscrew the bulb assembly and remove it. You can then remove the bulb from its compartment. Bring out the new bulb. Hold up the groove on top of the new bulb and align with the groove pocket on the inside of the TV, then proceed to slide the new bulb into place. Step 5: Replace Bulb Assembly Once the bulb is securely held in place, return the bulb assembly to its position and screw it back. Make sure not to tighten it too much but have the screws just firmly in place. Step 6: Close Bulb Door Once you are finished, you can close the bulb door after making sure there are no tools or screws left inside. Having such items inside the TV could cause a short circuit. Your door needs to be closed for the TV to operate. Tips: Remember to allow the old bulb to cool before you remove it. It will usually heat up to very high temperatures that could cause some serious damage. Most TV bulbs will warn you to replace your bulb while about a hundred hours are left on the old bulb. This duration is meant to give you time to get the replacement bulb and fit it. Finally, if you do not feel confident in doing the replacement yourself, get a professional to do it for you. They might charge you a fee, but it will be cheaper than the cost of damage caused by a poor fit.
Take care in solving the fault

I have a hitachi 55vs69 projection television. Lately, it has been shutting down every 15 minutes or so. The screen turns dark but you can still hear video until about a couple minutes later the led light...


First step is to unplug the 120 vac power for a few minutes to clear any corrupted data that may be present in the controller circuits.

If a "power" reset doesn't help and the lamp or bulb is installed correctly, you most likely have a failed replacement bulb. The symptoms are all standard indications of a failed bulb.

Reduced lamp life can be caused by:
  1. Lightning and other 120 vac power bumps.
  2. Collisions with vacuum cleaners or other incidental impacts while the TV bulb is operating.
  3. Starting the TV without a complete cool down. Bulb will consume a small amount of mercury with each start. Excessive consumption occurs when bulb is "Hot" and turned on.
  4. Wrong bulb installed as replacement.(Philips original replaced with Osram or El Cheapo)
  5. Poor quality or damaged bulb installed as replacement.
  6. Bulb damaged during replacement
  7. Bulb installed incorrectly at replacement.
Almost all Hitachi 55vs69 "No Picture" failures are related to the bulb.

Many of our service events are with customers that purchased El Cheapo bulbs from "shopping cart" websites or picked up a bulb from a small "local" TV shop. Many small shops stock of 3 or 4 bulbs and try to substitute or cross reference to fit more than 200 models of TVs from 7 different manufacturers. If a premature bulb failure occurs, they have the opportunity to sell you some expensive service.

Use the correct bulb for your model and if you are uncomfortable with the replacement procedure, get local service.
