    replacing the lamp where is it located

  • sldemos Oct 11, 2008

    I know where the lamp is, but we can't get it installed properly. The TV works for a short period of time and then it cuts out and the red light on the front blinks three times.

How often do you have to replace the lamp on a 56DR650? Replaced in April of last year and is now exhibiting same problems.

Average life on a OEM lamp unit is 2,000 hours which usually works out to 2 years (unless you use it a awful lot of hours).Bad color wheels in these sets usually exhibit a high pitched sound or fan like noise--even heard a few that sound like a garbage disposal.The wheel faces the lamp so if you can remove the lamp and look at it to see if shattered or missing pieces.Someone posted instructions for the replacement online--let me know as it is on my bookmark list now.Only way to know (other than taking lamp out and finding it shattered inside) is to replace it.May be the lamp again, maybe the Ballast that drives it etc, kind of like starter on car turns but car will not start.Try to look at turn on to see if lamp even fires for a moment--then inspect color wheel etc. If you want the URL for the installation of the wheel let me know.SD TECH

Changing the "Lamp" in your TV.

So, you are going to change your "Lamp", yourself, in your TV? Well, all power, pun intended, to you. If you would, first, take some advice, from someone who has been doing all this, for over 25 years, it will be well worth your while.First, how are you 100% sure that it needs replacement? Second, Do you know WHY, the lamp failed? Now obviously, if you are replacing the lamp "Because the "Set" told you to" Well, then, that maybe OK. BUT, any other reason, could be fraught with peril. You see there are a myriad of possible reasons that the Lamp "Won't Light" and IF you DO NOT REPAIR the "Root Cause" then, either it simply will not work, when you replace it. OR, worse the "New" one you install, quickly fails. Due to the initial problem, simply causing the same "Symptom" again, which is/was the Failed Lamp. So you see what I am saying is, you must find the "Cause" of that Lamps failure, otherwise you are simply treating the Symptom & NOT the "Cause". You will just be spending good money after bad.Now I am not try to dissuade anyone from anything, I just want you budding would be "Fixers" to know what you are up against, with things like this.So, how do we know what, the "Root Cause" is? Now that's, what you should put your efforts into discovering. It is also the reason I make a living, because it's hard, somethings do indeed have, This-happened-so-this-is-the-only-fix. But more often than not, it is not a "Oh same as last time", type of thing. Components especially, semiconductors, just fail. It can be dry joints, faulty discrete components and so on. Now Often it is better to replace an entire "Module" than actually troubleshoot and find the actual "Culprit". Another thing that I cannot stress too much is try your hardest to obtain a "Service Manual" for you model unit, or even a close cousin. Also whenever you work on a TV set you should, always use an "Isolation Transformer" to protect you from lethal shock. Alright, so now you know what you should do right?

Which is the fuse for honda hrv main beam lights , mine have stopped working so i think its the fuse

To start with, there is no way that your problem could be CAUSED by a fuse. Fuses DO NOT cause electrical failures. Electrical failures cause blown fuses.

Please read the following articles:
Where's The Fuse?

What Else Could Be Wrong?

Then to answer the question you asked, I would need to know what YEAR your Honda HRV is and whether it is equipped with daytime running lamps. - OR - you could simply look in your owner's manual.

My projector overheats quickly

Two possibilities:

1) Air filter is clogged and preventing proper air flow

2) Lamp is getting old and is less efficient, creating excess heat.

For option 1, check the air filter located on the bottom of the projector. Page 81 of the manual details this process:

Once you have removed filter,either replace or clean out with vacuum or simply blowing out the dust

Option 2: if you have used the projector for over 1500 hours, there is a good chance the lamp is close to the end of its life cycle. Check to see if the lamp replacement light is on; it is just below the power button on the unit.

If you are feeling adventurous, you can take out the lamp by following the instructions on page 86 of the manual:

Once removed from the unit, see if the lamp has any bubbles or crystallization. The crystallization makes the mirror in the lamp look muddled, rather than crisply reflecting light.

Hope this helps.

Panasonic PT-61DLX76-K TV, no picture, red lamp indicator flashes once every five seconds. Bulb looks okay visually. Panasonic says bad ballast I need confirmation and service manual.

Lamp should be replaced in average every 2.5 years. Bad lamp could look OK but it is not.
Replace the lamp first if it is older than 2-3 years. You have to do it in any case. If new lamp will not
work, only then you can start thinking about ballast replacement.
If you are OK with the screwdriver and you have technical skills you don't need service manual to replace ballast. You will need to remove rear cover and locate it near the lamp. It is not too hard.

Sony xl-2100u lamp

Refer to your owners manual on lamp replacement. Remove the old lamp and look at it. If it looks "blown" (like a flashbulb) then it is defenitely defective.
