    I have the same problem. It worked fine yesterday, today there's audio but no video. Screen doesn't light up. Where can I find a replacement part?

    Started losing picture also with this TV. Rolled it off into the other room 2 yrs ago and got an LCD TV. Picture wheel on LCD went out, rolled VS-50805 back in and watched it for a week......back out again. Ok, haven't found a bulb yet and LCD supposed to cost $1200 to fix? I'm off to buy an LED DLP for price and longevity - crossing the fingers. And still won't get service contract on a TV ....$100,sure....$400 ? No way.

Did you find a bulb? My green bulb is dying and I need to find a replacement and I am being told the factory does not sell the part anymore. Any guidance would be appreciated.

Replacement lamp bp96 00826a

It could be a power surge or it could be an old bulb that needed changing. I would suspect that the bulb has reached the end of its life cycle and would check online to find a new one and replace it.

RCA M50WH72S Replaced bulb and ballast. TV comes on with good video for about 5 seconds, then off with good audio, front power light blinks 5 times. After a few minutes the video comes back on and repeats...

Check capacitors cp624, cp647 1000uf@35v each. They are in the power supply. Can be seen with bulge on the top. Seems to be a common problem with this model RCA.

Sharper Image Desk Lamp S1412. I need a manual. Lamp has quit working. Doesn't appear to be the bulb.

I have the same lamp with similar problem. I suspect the problem is with the ballast or starter, not bulb or switch. Ballast likely in the base. I'm searching for a replacement ballast.

I have a hitachi 55vs69 projection television. Lately, it has been shutting down every 15 minutes or so. The screen turns dark but you can still hear video until about a couple minutes later the led light...


First step is to unplug the 120 vac power for a few minutes to clear any corrupted data that may be present in the controller circuits.

If a "power" reset doesn't help and the lamp or bulb is installed correctly, you most likely have a failed replacement bulb. The symptoms are all standard indications of a failed bulb.

Reduced lamp life can be caused by:
  1. Lightning and other 120 vac power bumps.
  2. Collisions with vacuum cleaners or other incidental impacts while the TV bulb is operating.
  3. Starting the TV without a complete cool down. Bulb will consume a small amount of mercury with each start. Excessive consumption occurs when bulb is "Hot" and turned on.
  4. Wrong bulb installed as replacement.(Philips original replaced with Osram or El Cheapo)
  5. Poor quality or damaged bulb installed as replacement.
  6. Bulb damaged during replacement
  7. Bulb installed incorrectly at replacement.
Almost all Hitachi 55vs69 "No Picture" failures are related to the bulb.

Many of our service events are with customers that purchased El Cheapo bulbs from "shopping cart" websites or picked up a bulb from a small "local" TV shop. Many small shops stock of 3 or 4 bulbs and try to substitute or cross reference to fit more than 200 models of TVs from 7 different manufacturers. If a premature bulb failure occurs, they have the opportunity to sell you some expensive service.

Just replaced lamp on a sony kf-50we610 lamp light still on

Seems like a defective lamp perhaps. Can you check the old one for same test you did? It's hard to test them with a vom or multimeter and get correct results.

WD-62327 Lamp

This is about buying replacement bulbs for the WD62327 TVs.I dont know about the other models but I purchased a PHILLIPS replacement bulb and it worked for about a week and then those dumb flashing lights and no TV. I did some research and others were saying that you had to replace some condensers. Shop would do it for 600 dollars..Well i sent the bulb back and bought an OSRAM replaement bulb. The TV is now working perfect.
