Panssonic PT50DL54 DLP Lamp Replacement

I have removed the back cover and found where the lamp is enclosed. It appears to be inaccessible without totally tearing down the TV.

Please advise.

Thanks

Webman,

I own the same television, however, I am not a technician. The lamp housing unit is in the front of the television. Pop off the plastic grill and remove the screw on left side. Access to the bulb is there. Replacing the bulb is quite simple.

Good luck!

David

I have an rca hdlp6iw51 and i found a color wheel on ebay but i dont know how to change it does anyone have any advice


Follow this steps:
1. Take the back panel off of your set, using your Phillips head screwdriver, to remove any screws. 2. Remove the projector lamp. You can reach the color wheel without doing it, but you are less likely to damage the projector lamp if you take it out. Loosen the screws at the base: depending on your DLP's brand, the screws may come out, or may just loosen. If they come out, set them in a safe place before removing the lamp. If not, just pull the entire lamp out, once the screws will not loosen further. 3. Take out the panel that is connected to the cable outlets, using the screwdriver to take out any screws. Pull the panel until the cables, attached from the inside, run out of slack.
4. Remove the screws at the bottom of the panel, in the center, and any screws connecting this panel to the outer case of your DLP. The number and location of these screws will vary depending on your DLP's brand.

  • 6 Pull out the entire center unit, pulling gradually. Then, unplug the power cable from the main set (this is generally blue and brown). Remove the sensor switch and any cables joining the center unit to either side of the set.
  • 7 Take out the plug from the cover of the color wheel. In most brands, it will have a black and blue wire connected to a green circuit board. Then, remove any cables coming out of the wheel. Depending on the brand, the screws may be small enough to require the jeweler's screwdriver.
  • 8 Remove the screws holding the color wheel cover in place. Remove the cover, then take out the screws holding the wheel in place. If tape is holding the wheel, just pull on the wheel until it comes free.
  • 9 Put the new wheel into the slot. You do not want to touch the wheel, or you will blemish it and leave impressions that will be visible when the light shines through it. Re-insert the screws. Then, replace the cover, making sure that the wire jacks are in the same places.

    Samsung DLP HL-S5087W 56" Confused...


    Those lamps can be pretty touchy and susceptible to temperature changes and finger prints. Also some discount lamp dealers can accidently sell you the wrong lamp. Something simple and dull to try is to take that lamp out and put it back in, check that the connections are seated properly and the air pathway from the fans is clear.  If the fans were dirty and you put in a new bulb that worked for a while it may have burned out prematurely.

    Tip

    DLP TV won't run after replacing lamp.


    When the lamp on your DLP blows out or the "replace lamp" light says it's time to replace the lamp, you do, then the unit will not power on you may not have inserted the lamp fully, correctly or the interlock switch may not be closing completely on the lamp door.

    For safety purposes DLP TV's have an electrical interlock where the lamp door closes. The set cannot be energized with the lamp door off or open. If you remove the lamp door you should see an arm on the door and a slot in the frame with the contact for the switch visible through it. Make sure that the arm is not broken off or damaged in any way.

    With the door removed, remove the lamp assembly being careful not to touch any of the glass. If you still have the replacement instructions reread them and follow the reassembly instructions carefully.

    Be certain that the lamp assembly is installed properly and seated completely on the power plug. When you are absolutely sure that it is mounted correctly, attach the lamp door making certain that the interlock is being depressed by the arm on the door.

    If the unit still does not power on remove the back from the set. This generally involves removing many screws around the perimeter and should be obvious if studied for any length of time. Once the back is removed look at the interlock switch and make sure it is mounted correctly. Many times removing and reinstalling the lamp door will move the switch (if it is loose) causing the switch to not perform it's task and clear the fault for the lamp door.

    If the unit appears to be mounted correctly use a DMM to check the continuity of the switch both open and closed. If the switch shows continuity when depressed it is good. Reassemble the unit and try it. If the lamp door switch was the problem you unit should now work.

    If your unit still will not work I have a tip at http://www.fixya.com/support/r4606286-troubleshoot_dlp_tv which may be helpful for more advanced troubleshooting.

    Thanks for using FixYa.

    Can't see picture on my samsung tv...lamp, timer and standby light are blinking on the power button


    You need to replace the lamp. Order the correct type and code number (from samsungparts.com or the store where you bought the TV). Before starting the replacement, make sure the TV has been off for at least 30 minutes and unplug the set. Remove the phillips screw that holds the lamp cover and then the lamp cover itself. Remove the two screws that hold the lamp to the housing. Pull the old lamp out by the handle. Put the old lamp in a safe place until you can properly dispose of it.

    Handle your new lamp carefully (wear gloves to avoid skin oils on the lamp). Put the new lamp in the housing and close up the TV by reversing the above steps (secure screws, replace lamp cover).

    I hope this helps.

    The picture on the tv goes off and on but the sound stays on. after it does that for awhile it will work fine for quite some time and then it will do it some more.RCA DLP


    The lamp already need replacement.To replace your lamp you need:
    • OEM RCA DLP lamp
    • flat-head screwdriver
    • T-10 & T-15 torx driver
    • pliers.
    Steps: Use a pair of latex gloves.
    1. Locate the lamp through the rectangular at the back of your TV.
    2. Loosen the screw with your flat-head screwdriver.
    3. Use the two "clips" to open the compartment door.
    4. Loosen the screw on each side of the lamp enclosure.
    5. Gently pull back the tray to remove the lamp.
    6. Visually inspect the area labeled “Clip.” They are on the top and bottom of the enclosure. Between them, there is about a 3′ gap where you need to push in with your thumb to be able to pull out the rear lamp cover.
    7. Unscrew the lamp connectors with your pliers and torx driver and remove the three screws.
    8. Replace the old lamp with the new one. Be sure to put the washer back and all other parts properly.
    9. Reinstall in reverse order.

    Replacement bulb


    Check this website for the lamp. The cost is for the lamp only without the housing, but you could re-use the lamp housing by removing the old lamp and installing the new one.
    Good Luck.

    DLP bulb replacement


    most manufactures consider the lamp to be a consumable product so the will give you instructions in the box with the new lamp..basicaly,,you unplug the set..remove the lamp cover door,,remove the old lamp,,install the new lamp,,replace the lamp cover door, plug in the set...some companies want you to reset the lamp timer and that info is in the owner manual..get an original lamp and not a generic one..call the manufacturer with you model number and they will most likely sell you one and ship it to you
