Question about Televison & Video
Web site was no longer available last time I checked. HOWEVER...if you go to www.fixyourdlp.com they have step by step instructions. It is really quite simple. I have changes mine twice in the 5 years that I have my 56" Vivitek. Start out by unplugging the TV. On the back you will see 2 screws to remove the lamp door. Once open you will see the lamp holder which is also held in by 2 screws. Once they are unscrewed the canister and lamp can be removed. Use rubber gloves when replacing the bulb. You will need a phillips screwdriver and a needlenose pliers. There is one phillips screw on the side of the bulb to remove and a nut on top that needs to be removed. Pay attention to the 2 wires connected to these points and be sure to put them in the same position when hooking up the new lamp. Once the screw and nut is removed, you will see a spring clip extended from behind the lamp to the front of the lamp container. It clips in the front and the tention holds the lamp in place. Remove the spring clamp and the lamp will come out. Put your new lamp in place, replace the spring clamp as it was (This is the hardest part because of the tention of the spring and getting it back into the cutout **** for the wire spring), then replace the nut and phillips screw and you are ready to plug it back into the TV. Be sure to replace the lamp box properly. Look at the 2 wire connections and align it with the connections inside the TV. Once inserted, tighten the screws on the box, replace the lamp cover and tighten those 2 screws and you are finished. Plug your TV back in and turn on your TV. NEXT...remember to reset your lamp timer when finished. That is done with your on screen menu. Go to System Info and look for "Reset Lamp Timer". Once there, select "YES" to reset the timer to zero.
