How to change lamp on Hitach 60vg825

Is there anything that i should look out for when i change the lamp on my Hitachi 60vg825?. I have done a lot of reading and it seems pretty strait forward. The lamp is 25 months old with only moderate use, less than 8 hrs per day of usage. Is this normal operating time for a lamp to burn out? Thanks for your time.

Yes, you are due for a lamp. Save yourself some money by ordering just the bulb p/n UX21516 (instead of the whole lamp assy), install it yourself. There are lots of us that sell these bulbs far below what the assy costs. Make sure it is an OSRAM bulb though.

Hitachi LCD HGTV has lot color. Replaced lamp. What Now?

If has lost color on more than one source( just to verify it's not a bad cable or hook up) it's probably a broken color wheel. You can usually see the color wheel when you remove the lamp. There should be a glass looking disc right where the lamp would shine, the wheel will have segments with different colors.

I would say to check the video fuse however if your not replacing the board it isnt an expensive repair cost for labor and part and four years of a good amount of use is appropriate surges could have also lead to the damage

Sounds like Calibration is needed on the projection internals. Your TV uses a rear-projection system and the problem is either in the imaging LCD Unit or the light filter. I see in a previous thread you have changed the bulb. You can invest in a voltage regulator to keep the hardware in factory condition.
Also you can burn a DVD of a stuck pixel remedy video and run it on the screen with full brightness and full contrast. This is used for plasma burns and stuck pixels on conventional Flat panel TVs but can repair color issues with projection systems. This therapy is focused on the imaging unit between the projector and the main drop of your tv.
please feel free to post a more in-depth description or any changes
