I think my bulb blew out but I do not have an instruction manual and I'm not sure how to replace the bulb. Can I get a copy of the manual for the VIVITEK DLP TV RP56HD21-B?

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.

MICROWAVE LG MODEL MC-806BL LAMP BLOWN


If there's no obvious removable cover over the bulb (most often on the rear or side) and the owner's manual doesn't address it, then disassembly will be required.

Always unplug a microwave before removing or installing any bulbs.

If it's an over the range type, remove the vent grille across the top and see if bulbs can be accessed there. There may be a panel on the bottom covering the light(s), instead.

If not, chances are you'll have to remove it from the wall, then remove the outer cover. If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

Once it's out of the wall, the outer cover (wrapper) will need to be removed, just as you'll need to do on a counter top model.

On a counter top model, be sure it's unplugged, but otherwise ignore the instructions above this paragraph.

The screws you need to remove should be pretty obvious, but a special driver (such as a T20H type or GTXH20-100) may be needed.

Be sure to put all the screws back in the right holes, since some may be special grounding screws.

Bulbs can be had in most grocery stores, hardware stores, home improvement centers, and big box or department stores.

Many models use halogen lamps. You must not touch the new one with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

In the UK, LG customer support is here. You may find your owner's manual online here.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Hi. I've seen this situation on this model. The bulb is not screwed in all the way. You think it is but it is not. If it still doesn't work, get new bulb. Sounds like you got a couple bad bulbs. Good Luck, Mack
