Trying to replace bulb, but can't get plug to line up

Anyone have any advice on how to get the box with the lamp secured in it to line up perfectly with receiver for the plug? The only variable is the little black strip that goes over the plug itself to secure it in the box. When I took the piece apart it fell out & I have no idea which way it goes (only 2 options) but I've tried both a million times & can't get the thing to plug in.

Thanks in advance.

If you look at the connectors there is only one way they will line up. Leave the connector on the lamp cage just a little loose so that it can move a little and that always works for me in getting the two to seat.

How to replace the bulb in a wd-65733


Its in the owner manual but generally:

Unplug the set first

remove plate beneath screen on front of set, usually pulls out or has a thumb wheel on either side on rear to back out first.

Locate the Lamp Door directly behind it and remove the screw/s that secure it.

Inside you will find the lamp cartridge, back out the two screws until the cartridge is free, and pull cartridge out by the handle it has.

Do not just buy a bulb unless you want a darker picture and a short lamp life--get a replacement with the cartridge.

A word of caution, when you slide the new one into the set take care the two pins on the lamp line up perfectly with the socket in the set where the lamp goes, it is easy on these sets to have the lamp not engage and bend the socket in the set out of position, it can be dealt with but easier to avoid that pit fall.

Door and plate and all screws etc and power set up to see what you have.

Bulb or Ballast?


If your old lamp is still working fine and the new lamp is not, then you bought a defective lamp. Get your money back or exchange the lamp.

Wtf... wd-y57 change out the bulb. timer light blinks for a min.. then lamp light strats blinking tv wont come on HELP


If you did not have this issue before replacing the lamp remove it and look to see the socket it plugs into is not bent or damaged (it is possible when inserting to not get the two pins lined up correctly.

The lamp cartridge has to be installed precisely so it plugs into the socket and also the lamp door must be closed and secured.

How to replace a bulb


Hello
To replace bulb in RCA rear projection TVs follow this.
Turn the lamp assembly so that the front of the bulb faces downward
Locate two clips approximately three inches apart along the back edge of the rear lamp cover. Depress the clips with your thumbs and pull upward on the rear lamp cover to disengage it. Move the rear lamp cover so that you can see the head of the bulb. Note that the rear lamp cover still connects to the base of the bulb by a cable.

Locate the three hex screws around the head of the bulb that, in a triangle formation, secure the bulb to the assembly. Remove the screws with a hex screwdriver.

Pull the bulb and rear lamp cover upward to remove them.
Remove the nut that connects the cable from the rear lamp cover to the base of the bulb with a wrench. Disconnect the cable from the old bulb and discard the old bulb.
Reattach the cable from the rear lamp cover to the base of a new bulb and install the nut. Tighten the nut with a wrench
Install the bulb face down into the lamp assembly. Install the three hex screws into the tabs along the edge of the bulb and tighten with a hex screwdriver.

Reinstall the rear lamp cover onto the lamp assembly and line up the tabs with the holes along the side of the assembly. Press downward until the cover snaps into place.
Reinstall the lamp assembly into the back of the television, facing the bulb towards the center of the TV set. Tighten the screws securing the assembly and reinstall the lamp access door. Tighten the screw on the lamp access door.

Sony Wega kdf-50E2000 Keeps turning off and on


Before you replace the lamp I recommend trying to clean/dust the lamp component and lamp plug in area. I had the same problem and was able to resolve it by simply blowing the dust off the lamp components and fan. Use a can of high pressure air to get into the cracks and crevices.

Sounds like the bulb needs to be replaced. With the tv you have the Bulb last about 6000-8000 hours. If you think that is about right then you it most likely is time ro replace. You should be able to find the replacement bulb from the manufacture and then find it online to purchase.

Hewitt Packard high definition DLP tv Product #EX543AA#ABA need part, hp no longer carries them.


I have a brand new L2114a lamp for sale. I paid 299 plus shipping on ebay but it turned out to be the wrong one (despite what the manual says). I ordered the correct one I needed from HP. I am willing to part with it for 200. I can send pictures of the lamp and the box and the reciept. This is a BRAND NEW LAMP.

This lamp works in the following televisions and replaces the lamps listed below:
HP Pavilion md5020n 50-inch High Definition DLP TV L1735A
HP Pavilion md5820n 58-inch High Definition DLP TV L1736A

Hello, please check how many times the red light flashes. If it is 3 times this means that the lamp cover is not fastened securely. If the red light flashes 5 times this means that the lamp driver is defect. If you need more help please advice
