Broken flash bulb

The bulb in the pop-up flash is clearly broken. I called Sony and they said the part is $43.00. I have unscrewed and opened the housing around the pop-up flash, but have not attempted to extract the bulb as of yet for fear that I may damage something. The camera is no longer under warranty. Is it feasible for me to change this bulb on my own?

Yes that is true just beware of the capacitor can give you a shock ,you may not want to hold it again when that sure you have your tweezers insulated with rubber.and a soldering iron,should be at least 20watts.and be sure the flash bulb you are trying to put matches

Yeah, but look out, that capacitor can almost kill you! If you can find the flash bulb, it is very important that you do not touch the bulb with your fingers. Use rubber gloves. You may have to solder the bulb leads in.

Changing light bulb when broken? I need to unscrew what is left, don't know how to get to it.


I assume you are referring...that you don't know how to get the rest of the broken bulb out?

Do you have a potatoe? Hopefully, you do! Cut it in half and stick the inside of the potatoe onto the left over glass and turn it! This is the best and safest way to remove any broken bulb!


If there is a cover over where the bulb is...this cover should just pop off!

If there is no can use a pair of pliers, but...please unplug your refrigerator...First!

Kind Regards!

Mazda 5 SUV/van brake light assembly replacement

This is easy and takes maybe ten minutes. You need a phillips screwdriver and a pair of pliers. Open the hatch and remove two screws at the back of the brake light assembly. Pull the light assembly hard straight backward until the little pop-clip holding the front end of the light lets go. (This is the hard part, because there aren't any great places to grip the light and the front end pop-clip is stubborn.) Then unscrew the bulbs from the broken assembly (don't touch the bulbs or the slight oil from your fingers will make them explode when they heat up - use surgical gloves if you think you can't help handling the bulbs). Gently remove the wiring harness from the NEW light assembly and discard it. Push the existing wiring harness into place in the new assembly and screw the bulbs in. Line up the assembly's pop-clip to the front end screw that it pushes onto, and push hard from the back until it pops on. Have a helper lean into the light from the side to line up the two screw holes at the back, and put the screws back in. Use a pair of pliers to unclip the rear baffle from the broken light (two clips), then pop the baffle onto the new light.

PT-AX200U Bulb replaced 4 months ago Was on about

carefully take the lamp cover off, and see if there is any glass pieces inside. if all looks Ok, then unscrew the lamp housing and remove the lamp. check for any damage. be careful not to damage the lamp or bump it. These lamps generally contain mercury vapour, so try not to inhale anything if it's broken.

I need help. My Sony 50 inch tv is a 2006. The warranty ran out in June 2010. I heard a pop and then it shut off. Now the green light flashes 25 times and turns to the red lamp light. I can't reference...

Pop sound was broken lamp in tv, replace lamp to solve tv issue.
Please recheck model number as KDF-50EA10 seems invalid/ incorrect model number and nearest match is KDF-E50A10
If model number is KDF-E50A10 then required lamp part number is as follows...
F93087500 ... LAMP BLOCK ASSY XL-2400
and available with Sony Accessories Store for $200
Let me know if you have addition question or tv model number is other than above said (KDF-E50A10).

Broken Flash Bulb Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P93A Digital Camera

Hey, Matt here. You could try getting a cheap broken one off ebay or something. It is unusual for the flash to be the first thing to go so if you got a broken one from ebay the chances are the flash bulb would be good to use. Hope this helps. Matt. Please rate me
