How do i change the bulb

Bulb TVs are very big. In most cases the TV will give a warning that alerts you it's time to change the bulb. Do not touch the glass part of the bulb, as oil from your hands will reduce the life span of your bulb. Replacing the bulb is a simple process that will take a few minutes. Here is how to do it.
Step 1: Read User Manual Make sure that you have your user manual with you when working on your TV. Most electrical appliances will have guides on how to deal with replacements of parts and where to get the replacements and what specifications to look for. Read the user manual in depth before attempting the project of replacing the bulb. Step 2: Disconnect Power When working with any electrical appliance, always switch off and disconnect the power. Electrical shocks can cause injury or even death. Step 3: Open Bulb Door At the back of the TV there will be a bulb door which will usually be near the power cord, depending on the make of the TV. Once you locate the door, proceed to open either by sliding it open or unscrewing it as may be required. Step 4: Remove and Replace Bulb Once the door is open, unscrew the bulb assembly and remove it. You can then remove the bulb from its compartment. Bring out the new bulb. Hold up the groove on top of the new bulb and align with the groove pocket on the inside of the TV, then proceed to slide the new bulb into place. Step 5: Replace Bulb Assembly Once the bulb is securely held in place, return the bulb assembly to its position and screw it back. Make sure not to tighten it too much but have the screws just firmly in place. Step 6: Close Bulb Door Once you are finished, you can close the bulb door after making sure there are no tools or screws left inside. Having such items inside the TV could cause a short circuit. Your door needs to be closed for the TV to operate. Tips: Remember to allow the old bulb to cool before you remove it. It will usually heat up to very high temperatures that could cause some serious damage. Most TV bulbs will warn you to replace your bulb while about a hundred hours are left on the old bulb. This duration is meant to give you time to get the replacement bulb and fit it. Finally, if you do not feel confident in doing the replacement yourself, get a professional to do it for you. They might charge you a fee, but it will be cheaper than the cost of damage caused by a poor fit.
Take care in solving the fault

My Samsung HLN507w DLP HDTV will boot, reboot, and then all 3 lights flash simultaneously indefinently with no other noise or action from TV and never with a any picture on the screen. What is wrong? How...

Most likely bulb is is out or ventilation is covered in dust. Price depends on area you live and what you can do yourself. The dust and bulbs are the first cheapest way to go.

Spots on picture screen,color not correct

the picture tube has three color production units (bulbs) red, yellow and blue.....since these three colors can be combined to produce almost any color. as you have specified the red bulb might have damaged due to one of the following reasons.
1.continuous usage
2. keeping your tv in standby mode for a prolonged time.
the only thing you can do is call a technician and get your damaged part replaced.
remember please do not try to disassemble the unit yourself.

Picture is gone

the bulb has blown.... if you get the bulb out and replace it yourself, you would still be looking at the same price range, bulbsa are expensive... i suggest let the repairguy do it but if you do try it yourself, there should be a panel at the back of the tv that opens where you can then proceed to replace the bulb

Good Day; lanniejo;


It should not be that costly, always get an estimate, if you can't repair it yourself. Don't worry about the light bulb, it should be okay, as long as the picture color is ok. Good Luck, big IRISH.

Should I change the bulb?

Hi MovieJunkie9,

I would first recommend having a diagnosis done by a Toshiba authorized technician. Bulbs for projection televisions are typically a costly part, so I would not advise replacing it if you are not sure it is needed.

Second, make sure that your product's manual lists the bulb as a user-serviceable part and gives specific instructions for you to change the bulb to make sure you do not do any damage to your unit.

So long as your manual gives you instructions for changing your bulb and the Toshiba authorized technician diagnoses that the bulb is the issue, you should be able to go ahead and change the bulb yourself.

Thank you,
Go Ahead. Use Us.

TV turned off by itself and now blinks red led 6 times

6 blinks means a low B error. Which is no DD 6volt output on G1 board . This will cause no picture and no sound. To fix this yourself you would need the manual to get the correct sequence to test and proper part to order. You can get a service manual for 10.99 at the following link and they will ask if you'd like it emailed to you after purchase. Here is the link,

Is your TV still under warranty? If it is, then you should send it back and let them fix it. If you do it yourself, you might void the warranty.
