Dv 10 Lamp trouble

I went to turn on my Dv 10 today, only to find the lamp light glowing bright red.... does this mean the lamp blew?   I am the original owner and really only had about 400 hours on the lamp..... not that much use.....   I thought they were to last to about 2000 hours. It is still under 2 year warranty, but I have a feeling the lamp is not covered.........
Am I screwed?   The lamp seem to run $350-ouch!! Any thoughts.........

    OK- thanks for the help. I pulled the lamp out and really did not see anything that struck me as a fault. No crack, no clear blackened area...... can you be more specific as to what I might be looking for?  




    Thanks


    Also- if I have to replace the lamp- is there any alternative to the $350 optoma charges for a replacemnt bulb?

Replaced lamp on mitsubishi wd62527 worked for 10 minutes then shut down. Now red lamp light is on


If the red indicator light on the front of your HDTV is glowing a solid red, you should first unplug the AC cord from the wall power outlet and wait for 60 seconds before reapplying power to the HDTV.

After you turn the TV on, if it doesn't power up, try holding the power button down for at least 8 seconds. That's supposed to force a system reset. If your model has a system reset button, use that instead. Press the reset button for about 20 seconds...release it and press it again for 20 seconds, release it again and the led will blink just for a minute or two. You should now be able to turn the TV on.
If after several attempts, the HDTV has not fully powered on and the LED on the front of the HDTV is still glowing solid red, you may want to reseat the lamp.

If reseating the lamp has not resolved the issue then your next step is to order a replacement lamp.

Hc1500 projector will not turn on


Sounds like the lamp. The only way to really check it is to either put a new bulb in or put the old bulb in a different projector. Neither of which probably help you at this point. But, it does sound like the lamp is blown.

Lamp blew, picture went then sound also. Replaced lamp, now will not turn on. Red light flashing on front switch panel.


If the red light flashing 3 times the pause and again flashing 3 times, check and make sure lamp cover is installed correctly back on tv.

No picture on my sony kds-50a3000 red blinking light at lamp spot


If by noise, you mean a loud, audible pop--then it's your lamp that imploded.

You should be able to just pop off the cover on the side (right side if you are facing the front of the set), remove the internal lamp cover (if present) and yank (I mean, gently pull) out your lamp.

Look for all the bright particles of glass inside your newly imploded lamp. Replace with a Sony original, as these sets can chew through generic lamps very fast.

Now, if by noise you mean something else, please elaborate.

My sony kds-r50xbr1 turns on for a second then turns right back off no red lights flash. Today I just replaced the lamp and it was working fine for about an hour but then went back to the same problem.


If you already replaced the lamp and still have the same issue, that means you will need to replace your ballast, of course there is no need in returning the lamp, since eventually you're going to need one.

Hi there


Yes the lamp light means change the lamp. If you have not changed one in this tv yet it is overdue.

Did you have color problems in past? Most of these sets have convergence problems. Amps goes out. But you should have seen some type of distortion from color, red,blue, green. If no color problems then maybe vertical ouput out or horizontal output bad.
