    I turned on my TV, waited for a warm up session, and then I heard a loud "POP", I then lost the picture. I turned it off and waited for a minute or so, then turned it on again but nothing came on, the red problem light came on and I knew there was something wrong.

    My assunption was that I list a bulb. My question to anyone out there is; I hear that the bulbs are very expensive. Is this true?? And if so, what is the ball park to buy one and changing it myself to save the extra buck???

Rear projection TVs require a light bulb (found on the right hand side of TV behind a small screw fixed panel) and this, like any bulb needs replacing from time to time. You need to get it changed by a repair guy or get a bulb yourself and do it. They're quite expensive though, £200 last I heard I think.

Rear projection lg lcd 44 inch


Is it an LCD or DLP? The Model below suggests it is an DLP. Sounds as if you have the dreaded light tunnel collapse common to all LG DLP TV's. Inside the light engine there is a square tube made up of four mirrors. These mirrors deform and crack with the heat of the lamp. They fall down over the light aperture and cause a shadow of varying degrees. It is fixable now at a realistic price ( used to have to replace engine) as LG have made the parts available. It would take a competent tech around three hours to complete or if you are technically minded you could do it yourself. I hope this helps. Good Luck.
