Question about Televison & Video
Replacing the lamp will fix this problem. Projection tv's lamps have a life of about 8000 hours and depending on how much it was used (not neccesarily how old the tv is), the lamp will need to be replaced. Generally there is a built in timer that will warn you before it goes out but I heard that they didn't start putting these on until they built the earlier models.
Unfortunately, I learned this the hard way and sold two good projection screen tv's when this happened because I assumed they were goners. I have one now that tells me when the lamp needs to be replaced and I just bought it a year ago...already needs a new lamp.
You can find the user manual online that will tell you what part number is needed. Once you get this info, head over to eBay and get a new one for half price. Mine ran me $189.99 but on eBay, I found a new OEM for $69.00.
They are pretty simple to replace and the manual will give you instructions on how to do so.
Hope this helps!
