This is very common problem among rearprojection tvs. youll need a technician to come take out the lamp and replace it. its too dangerous to do it yourself. if ur tv just shutoff and didnt turn onn again the best thing to do is relpace the tv because its not worth replacing the lamp because its too costly and it might happen again. they dont really make these tvs no more so its pricy

We have had this projector for 2 years. The projector will not turn on. It will turn green for 3 seconds then turn red and the lamp light turns red. I feel like the lamp could not already be worn? I was...

Whether or not you need to replace the lamp depends on how many hours of use it's had. You should be able to find the lamp time somewhere in the menu on the projector. Lamps for this projector are rated for 2000 hours (bright mode) or 3000 hours (Eco mode). In my experience they usually need changing at approx. 1500 to 1600 hours (bright mode). On Page 54 of the owners manual ( ) are instructions for changing the lamp and zeroing the timer once it's changed. The lamp is Type number : DT00911. You should be able to get one from the manufacturer, the dealer you purchased the projector from, or specialty bulb and lamp stores. Be prepared. They aren't cheap, but it's better than having to buy a new projector.

Lamp needs to bereplaced,,,,, tv jvc model 61z886, need to know model of lamp i need and where to buy it

Google "DLP lamp" and you'll get many places from which to order lamps. Go to one of these sites and they should have a search box. Enter your model number and it should give you the part number of your lamp. Try several sites if the first one doesn't give you what you need to know. Once you have your lamp number you can shop the various sites for the best price. Note: You can buy your lamp complete (with the housing it comes in),..... or just the bulb and replace the bad one in the housing (cheaper)..... if you have the skills needed. If not buy it complete with housing. If you change the bulb only,.. don't touch it with your bare hands. Most bulb only packages come with rubber gloves.
