Question about KNG America (026438) Corded Phone

1 Answer

The lamp just stopped working. Have had for approx 2 year only used 20 times went to turn it on and nothing happened. Replaced bulb and plugged into a new outlet still nothing. Is this a common problem? Love the lite, fits in with the decor. Can't get it to work at all. Will not spend the money on a new one nor continue to recommend this product as it has only lasted 2 years with minimal use. tried to call the company, the phone 3 is no longer in service, is this how the company usually does business?

You can re-wire it yourself. Here is how:
Disconnect the lamp from the wall outlet. Then use a knife to pry off the protective covering to give access to the wiring in the base of the lamp.
Use a wrench, or pliers to remove the nut that secures the long, threaded tube to the base of the lamp. Most lamps will contain a lead weight; remove this from the base as well.
Pull the tube part way out from the top of the lamp. Unscrew the socket from the tube by turning it counterclockwise.
If you are renewing a cord, cut the old cord to make dismantling easier.
Remove the outer shell of the switch socket by pressing at the base and pulling it straight up. Slide off the cardboard insulating sleeve to expose the socket's screw terminals.
Unscrew the two wires on the terminals. If you are replacing the switch or socket, fit the wires onto the new unit in the same way they were attached to the old one.
If feeding a new wire and plug, feed the wire through the lamp base and threaded tube. Connect the wires to the switch or socket. Reassemble lamp in same order that it was dismantled
Some lamp models have a harp which must be removed before further dismantling remove by pressing the two bottom arms together. Some lamps are held by finger nuts.
Some sockets and switches have metal shells which are removed by pressing at their base.

My sony KP-443X3U rear projection tv went to standby and I cannot get it to switch on. It is approx 6 years old. I think the bulb needs to be replaced?


Google the model number to locate it with "lamp" and You Tube has video instructions for replacing in most models--lamp has a 2,000 hour or 2 year average life and is meant to be replaceable by the customer who owns the set.

Optoma hd65 projector new bulb wont turn on...cant reset timer!


I think it's a lamp driver issue from what I've seen others have gone through. I also read that if you go through the sequence of unplugging, plug back in, wait 20 seconds and try to turn on, multiple times, it will finally kick on and work. I just got mine to turn back on by doing this and waiting through the fan cycling without the light turning on. After the 4th sequence the light flickered. After the 7th sequence it finally turned on and is working. Now I can watch the Super Bowl and will look into replacing soon.

I have a 60in Sony KDS-60A2020 LCD rear projection television that is only 2 years old. The picture keeps going out intermittently for about a minute, comes back on, then goes out again. The sounds remains...


Hi:
Yes replace the blub with a sony original lamp. The lamps sold as replacements such as LTI these lamps are not good for use as they don't fully meet the specs for sony televisions. Look at the lamp manufacture on the bulb itself if you see LTI as the manufacture then replace the lamp with a Phillips brand lamp.

Tv turns off at differing intervals.


It's probably time to buy a new lamp. They can be very expensive to buy, sometimes up to 400 or 500 dollars. If you think the lamp might be failing prematurely, contact LG's support or warranty department to see what your options are. If you must buy a new lamp, you should check into relamping the existing housing for the bulb. Some bulbs are easy to change the bulb and leave the reflector, saving you money, however, most of them are not easy to change. you'll have to check online.

Sharp XR-10X Bulb works once then nothing


this is something which sharp didnt foresee!!!!!!!!!!
sharp has two identical models
sharp xr10x & the newer model xr10xl.both the lamps look alike , however both have a different rating & reverse connector!!
i.e both cannot be interchanged!however if u have the old xr10x & if u try to fit the new bulb which is lower in wattage, it will explode in 20 mins
if you have bought a used projector , then u wont know if someone has interchanged the ballast!!
as this model was discontinued 2 years back!!!!
so confirm the model , it is mentioned under sharp name or at the bottom
good luck

Can you tell me why the optoma HD72I lamp will turn off after just a few minutes of running, the lamp is still fine


I have the same problem. I got a new bulb and it worked for about 1000 hours, then the new bulb started having the same problem. So, I was about to buy another bulb, and I figured why not try the original bulb. IT WORKED! For a couple weeks... Then it started doing it again. Obviously there was nothing wrong with the original bulb, and there is nothing wrong with the new bulb, but I have 2 bulbs that do it now. So, is there any way to just tell the projector run the bulb till it actually dies and not turn it off because it thinks it is about to die.

This may sound crazy. If you still have the old lamp. Put new lamp in old housing, and try that.
