Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a LG 52SZ8R-TB DLP TV. I have recently had to replace the lamp. I ordered this through a certified LG repairer. Upon fitting the new lamp the TV appears to not be light enough. It is that dark I can't watch it durign the daytime - and at night it is very hard to see the picture. I have sent the TV and the lamp to the repairer, however am having no luck with it being repaired. I don't believe I was supplied with an original LG replacement lamp and was wondering if this may b the issue. The repairer tells me that isn't the problem, and has now spend $500 on other replacement parts. I have read somewhere that the ballast?? could need tweeking if a different lamp is used - he tell me that my model doesn't have ballast. Are you able to offer any assistance. The original lamp has 110/120W (or something like that), however the replacement lamp had 120/100 - does this make a difference. Thanks.

We had the same problem. One place changed the lamp but they couldnt work out why it was red and lots of shadows. Next mob said that it was the component so they replaced that. From the 28/4 till end of Oct, the TV has now switched itself off and wont come back on. Both places say its the lamp - however I cant see how in 6mths it would run out again. The people who replaced the lamp dont want to help, just said they will put in a new one at $521. This TV has cost us so far $1100 in repairs and it's only 3 yrs old. Not happy. The DVD recorder broke within the first year, the set top box broke in the 2nd yr and the surround system blew up (yes smoke appeared and we were lucky we were home) on the 13th month. Mind you our LG comp screen also shut down on the 13th month. Never again will I buy LG

Our Projection tv does not turn and is flashing


If this is a DLP (digital light projection) ? If so, the lamp is probably out. DLP's are infamous for lamp failures. You can replace that yourself if you can find someone to order it from. Look it up online or check with a local repair shop. The only thing to be careful with is when you self diagnose a TV and maybe something else in the TV is causing the lamp to go out, you may find a new bulb goes out shortly after you put it in. So... it's best to have a certified technician diagnose the TV to make sure it's not "just" the bulb.

Hope this helps!

Samsung 50" DLP Lamp died, new lamp will not light`


Bad news.  Mine did the same thing.  Mine is the 61", but the internals are basically the same.  I replaced the lamp and the problem was fixed.  Then after a couple days, it died again.  I replaced the ballast, to no avail.  Took it to the certified repair center and they said I needed a new DLP Light Engine.  They wanted $1250 to fix it, but I was able to order one online from partstore.com for $700 and fixed it myself.  No problems since.
Your certified repair center will charge a minimal fee to diagnose and then you can fix it yourself if you choose.
The easist fixes for the lamp problems are A) replacing the bulb and B) replacing the ballast.  Anything else, you'll want a certified tech to diagnose the problem.
