No, there is a switch that must be engaged or the bulb will not fire. You can't turn it on with the door open or the entire back off the tv with out jumping the switch.

My Chrysler 300C left headlight low beam won't light up . I've brought new bulbs and still the left low beam light did not glow! I swapped bulbs around and the left bulb that wasn't working now glowed in...

Check the socket or connections that supply power to the bulb Sometimes the contacts can become corroded. Also, a loose or corroded ground wire can cause a bulb to not work or glow dimly.

My left front blinker flashes quickly. - The left

Check for power at the socket. If there is no power I would suspect the flasher relay wich supplies power to each bulb individually after it gets the right or left signal from the switch.

Rh indicators flashing fast .all bulbs lit .normal speed on lh and hazards

you have a bad earth or ground if your american (HI) if this is a peugeot then its most likely a fault with the back light ,its a common earth between all the bulbs and i bet if you remove the back light bulb holder thing you will see the other bulbs glowing as the indicator come on ,also the stop light will light up the other bulbs clean the bulb bases and grease the bases with vasaline then find the common earth and run a new cable from a bolt to the chassis nearby and iam sure it will cure it

Hello, the front left indicator is not working neither flashing at all. The rear left indicator just stays lit and does not flash. The right indicators work fine. I have bought the correct bulbs and...

Concentrate on the front indicator.
With a meter check you have an intermittent supply with the ignition on and left indicator selected.
If its ok, it will be an earth (ground) problem. Check using a temporary earth wire from the indicator unit to the chassis.
If no voltage found at indicator bulb, trace the supply cable back to source.

Hi got a 1990 cr 250 but it got no sparks ; were should i start

Start by seeing if you have voltage across the points when they are open. A small 12volt bulb on fly wires is useful for this exercise. Check the capacitor across the points.
If the gap is set correctly, the capacitor is OK and there is not 12volts on there, bulb lit?, check the coil next for voltage, bulb lit? then follow it back to the ignition switch, bulb lit? and to the battery fused supply and then to the battery.
Wherever the voltage is missing, bulb not lit, and where the voltage comes back, bulb is lit, is where your fault is.
Happy New Year.

How do you remove headlight bulb on mercedes 1997 sl? Have already opened the plastic cover, unplugged electrical wires, unscrewed collar. How does the bulb come out?

all you have to do is pull at this point. sometimes they get a little "stuck" in there so move up and down until the bulb comes loose. be sure not to touch the new bulb with bare fingers. if you can, get latex gloves to do this. simply install the new one reversing all the steps you already told me. cheers

My front driver's side turn directional doesn't work. The bulb is good; it comes on when I turn on the headlights. However, when I flip on the left turn signal it only blinks in the back.

Check inside the bulbs connector.. My Ion had some sort of residue that wouldn't allow connection to the bulb. If you have a black/brown tar substance there, scrape it off, or use liquid contact cleaner (Or BOth)..

Also check the bulb leads, and make sure they're clean...

Ok , so the lamp is out then.

Before spending the money on a new Ballast.

Switch on the Projector while the top cover is off and check if all your fans are running.

The red light you see glowing on the Mainboard is quite normal.

Rca projection tv has no picture or osd

Check the bulbs. If one is burned out, you will get this problem. The bulb is easy to change but will run you about $300.
