139.00 seems reasonable for a replacement lamp. is that the only problem that you are having or are you hearing a squealing sound and then the tv cycles off?

How do I know if I need a new lamp?


Hi,
Yes, if you have not replaced the lamp since you purchased this TV.
Lamps usually last about 6000 hours.
I've seen lamps last much longer than 6000Hrs, it all depends on the usage.
Remove the lamp from the TV and do a visual inspection, see if there's a crack on the glass or the bulb.
If the TV is few years old then the Lamp may be bad.

Buy original Lamp: 800 638-3328

DO NOT BUY the cheap lamp from ebay

Good luck to you.

Turn set on picture is dark.. if I leave the TV on.. in several hours it's viewable.


I have seen several Samsung's including 3 that were only a few months old at the time where it was the lamp---one was so dim it was very hard to even see the picture or that the screen was lit.

Two suggestions here: One of course would be to buy and gamble and replace the lamp.

What I found in two of the three cases was when I removed the lamp the glass pillar inside it was "bent" at a angle from heat or a natural defect--in both those cases a new lamp cured this dim picture issue.

Set will monitor the lamp and if too dim may shut set off or even blink for a prolonged period of time.

If the lamp is over 2 years or age (average life) or was replaced with a non-Samsung lamp you are going to have to take the gamble to try another one.

Inspect the lamp---that pillar supports the filament and if bent the lamp is suspect at best.

I have a Panasonic 62 inch rear projector tv and the lamp light is turning red so my tv will not turn on, i was told its either the bulb or a dirty filter the question is where is the filter


It's most likely the Bulb. We had the same issue with ours only 1 year after buying it. Luckily we purchased from Costco and called them. They had someone come out, replace it and didn't cost me a dime. (When I called Panasonic they said the lamp was covered under the 5 year lap warranty, but the labor for someone to come out was going to be $100.)

I have an RCA DLP tv model HP50LPW52. the sound was there with no picture. since it is 5 years old I replaced the lamp for the first time. got it all hooked up, turned it on and the tv slowly came on....


That is your Color Wheel that is bad. I wish you would have posted the problem before buying a lamp. I would have told you to treat yourself to a new set instead of putting good money into a DLP set that is 5 years old.

Samsung DLP HL-P5063W. . .no lamp!


Remove the rear cover and check the lamp cover switch. Earlier versions used a black plastic switch holder that may break due to improper assembly. The part number for the holder is BP61-01240A. Newer versions use a metal tab attached to the engine. In this case, improper assembly may cause the lamp cover switch to be extended past its range, either breaking the switch or causing it to have an open contact. Replace the switch with BP91-01231A.

Note that in these models, when reinstalling the rear cover, it is best to remove the lamp cover first, install the rear cover, then install the lamp cover. This will make sure that the lamp switch is properly engaged.

LG 44SZ8D not turning on


The red light indicates the lamp is burned out. A new one is $100 to $200.
Depending on whether you use the old housing or want to order the lamp and housing together. There are lots of sources for this lamp online.

Once the lamp is replaced, it will be good as new and the lamp will last aprox. 8000 hours.
