Hi,
The parts can be source from either Vivitek directly or Vanice baldwin stores. The following links give you contact information on the same.
http://www.vivitekcorp.com/service-center.php
http://www.vancebaldwin.com/contact.asp

Lamps or bulbs in DLP TV are generally not covered under manufacturer warranty. If the lap exploded inside the TV, i would suggest to report the same to Vivitek and see what they have to say about the same. I guess replace the Bulb first on the TV, if rest of system is turning on, like your sound and there is no flashing indicator lights on the TV


Thanks

Viviteck 56''in.HDTV DLP TV. replaced with a new lamp bulb since I replaced this the tv wont come on only the sound for about 5 seconds then tv is silent again. any tips, Please.


The first thing to check on any TV that has a replaceable lamp is to make sure the lamp door is back on and seated correctly. You also need to make sure that the lamp is seated all the way in. The lamp door and in most cases the lamps have saftey switches they have to activate for the TV to work normal.

52 inch Vivitek rear projection dlp-hdtv


hi ferrari,

changing the bulb isnt going to help. the t.v. is just one big disaster so you might as well rip someone else off just like vivitek has done to all of us. if the new owners tell you theres a problem with the t.v. tell them they must have messed it up during transportation. Thats what vivtek told us. =D

Flashing in Blk,Wht, and a little color


Sounds like maybe your color wheel needs to be replaced. If you have noticed a humming noise in conjunction with the intermittent colors, then that is most likely the issue.
My 51" Vivitek started to hum loudly about 2 months ago and I kind of ignored it ,but it got so loud and annoying I had to do something.First changed the bulb and then bought a color wheel at www.vancebaldwin.com .Login as guest and then enter your model number into corresponding box.They have a few Vivitek parts.
I replaced my color wheel myself and it works great!
I'd be happy to help any way I can.
Good luck!

Vivitek 56 inch dlp projection is humming. why and how to fix


In my experience, the humming means your color wheel is going. The bearings inside the wheel are probably giving out.
My Vivitek started humming a couple of months ago and first I replaced the lamp.
Still hummed.
I read in other forums that humming is linked to color wheels and that seemed like where the noise was coming from.
I purchased a new wheel online and replaced it myself...
..no more humming, the picture is great and now I can listen to the movie again...not the tv!

Replace lamp on dlp tv


On the side of the TV press the menu and volume up buttons at the same time for three seconds. The 'reset lamp timer?' will appear on the screen. Press the OK button to accept. You're done!
