You DO NOT have just a bulb in your set. You have the older style Projection TV with three picture tubes. It's a good possibility that you have a convergence issue that has blanked the raster and therefore you will not see a picture until the error is corrected. Have it looked at by a qualified technician.

Change the bulb on NCE v260X and I still have white snow flake when I turn it on

Have you adjusted the contrast and Keystone. A new bulb should be plenty bright. Maybe clean the lens. There is in some types of Projectors a color wheel inside this can become dusty. But not often if you keep the filters in place and clean them. This could cause a snowy picture as well. Hard to say without actually seeing the picture to say what the issue could be. But these are some of the stronger possiabilities.

Projection TV no picture

Hard to see picture. 3 possible solutions (1) the lamps are out of
alignment (2) the settings on your picture needs to be changed in your menu or (3) the bulbs need to be replaced.

If its the bulbs and your tv is under warranty great if not it is cheaper to buy a new projection. The bulbs are about $200-250 a piece and there are 3 in most units sometimes 4

Picture went off while watching toshiba projection tv.

The projection TVs use a bulb that will get progressively dimmer (hardly noticible) and then one day just burn out. You need to get the model # of the TV and source a replacement bulb and change it.

Hope this helps,

How do i change the bulb

if they are lcd, or dlp projection tv's then there will be an access door on the side, front or back that is easy to access and would require only a philips or standard screwdriver to replace. if they are a tube type rear projection tv, then they don't have bulbs, they have picture tubes, in which case you could not change them yourself, but you would not need to, because picture tubes hardly ever go bad.

Dark picture on wega lcd

Yes, if this TV has a bulb it is likely to be the bulb.

I am not familiar with this exact model, but other LCD Projection TV will show dim picture after some time. Expected life of the lamps is about 2yrs. After 2yrs the picture will become dim. After 5yrs I am suprised it is even working.

Dirt doesn't cause this problem unless your are a smoker or have the unit "literally" outside. DO NOT try to clean it or let someone tell you to do it because it will cause more problems than it fixes.

Change turn signal bulb 02 S60

ok this is what you do,unplug the two vaccum hoses at the back of the air filter box, pull up the air filter box,dont worry it wont break,give it a quick tug upwards on the four corners,now you can get enough room to change the directionals.NOTE: changing bulbs would not solve your problem because after a couple of weeks or so you will get that turn signal warning again,your best bet is to change the turn signal socket (its about $15.00) at the dealer.,you get the new socket and bulb all in one,do both sides if you can afford it because after a couple months the other side also goes.

Is my bulb going bad!!!!

Without seeing your Tv it is hard to say what is really going on.

The cloudy picture sounds like one of your "bulbs" needs to have it's fluid changed, not "bulb" replacement.

Rain bowing normally means convergence adjustment or circuit repair is needed.
