Question about Sharp Televison & Video
Hi, your TV is experiencing Lamp problem...
How Can I determine if my TV has a Lamp?
If your TV is a projection type TV such as DLP, LCD, HDILA, LCoS, SXRD it probably has a Lamp. CRT type PTVs and Flat Panel type TVs do NOT have Lamps or they are not replaceable. Most TVs that use a lamp have an LED (light) on the front panel labeled "Lamp".
Where is the Lamp located?
Do NOT open the lamp compartment unless you KNOW that the TV is unplugged from the AC power. Most Lamp compartment doors are located on the rear or side of the TV and they are somewhat obvious and usually labeled. Other TVs have the lamp compartment in the front behind a bezel that may be secured with thumb screws in the back. See your Owners Manual if you are unsure or better yet -Request a Free TV Repair Estimate.
What tools do I need to get the Lamp Assembly out?
Consult your Owners Manual. DO NOT attempt to remove the lamp if it is hot! Some TVs use thumb screws and require no tools, but most only need a common Philips and/or a medium flat tip screwdriver. Some TVs use a HEX wrench. If you are unsure or do not have the correct tools - Request a Free TV Repair Estimate.
How can I determine if the Lamp is Bad?
Do Not attempt to remove the Lamp if it is hot! Do NOT touch the face of the lamp. Look into the lamp and see if there is broken glass in it or if the glass tube is discolored at its base, if so then the Lamp is Bad. A lamp may look like new and even light for a while and still be BAD. There is NO reliable way to test a lamp that looks good. If your TV's Lamp Error indicator says the Lamp is bad, then it most probably is (BUT not always).
Can I replace the Lamp myself?
Most manufactures design their TVs so that you can replace the entire Lamp Assembly yourself and these instructions are included in your Owners Manual. Other manufacturers intend that the lamp be replaced by a technician only. And some models the Lamp must be replaced by a technician. BEST ADVICE - Purchase only the original Lamp Assembly listed in the Owners Manual if you plan to replace the Lamp yourself. Substitute replacement assemblies or Lamp only replacements (without the "cage") can prove unreliable at best and dangerous at worst. If you are not sure - Request a Free TV Repair Estimate.
I installed a new Lamp but I still have Lamp problems!
Did you use a factory original part? If not, this could be the problem.
Most TVs have a timer that must be reset when you replace the lamp. The instructions for this procedure are located in the Owners Manual or come shipped with the new lamp. Some manufacturers do not publish this information or may even require a special "service" remote control for some models to reset the lamp timer.
You may have a defective Lamp Ballast (electronic power supply for the Lamp) or other problem - Request a Free TV Repair Estimate.
I guess that will do..
