if the set is now working,its just a matter of resetting the lamp-hour counter in the on-screen menus.be sure to clean any filters associated with the fan which cools the bulb,or your new lamp wont last long!
You are probably correct, but it wouln't hurt to check the lamp that is in there to make shure. You can download your owner's from "retrevo" and those manuals also give the web site for lamp replacement(toll free number) if you want the original or I found union electronics to have a good price on some of the replacement lamps .
no you should not feel any click,the lamp plug
slides into the ballast plug in the groves.do not
force it,you could have the plug upside down or
you need to visually see if the ballast plug is
damaged.you may need to replace the ballast if you still are getting a red lamp error on the
front of the tv.
Yes this is the signal for a bad lamp. Other things can cause this. 1. Look at the new lamp. make sure it still looks good. not broken with little glass pieaces in it. 2. When you turn on the tv, put your ear to the lower back part of the tv near the middle. Listen for the start up of the color wheel (a low high pitch sound only at the start up of the motor). If this is good you will here a ticking sound only if the lamp dose not light.
Now with all this info. If the lamp lights (as seen from the back of the set) and goes out after a few seconds and you did not here the color wheel spin up, the color wheel is bad.
If you here the color wheel spin up and no ticking sound, the Ballast is bad.
The ballast part no. 939P978010
The color wheel is not avialable from Mits. You will have to replaced the light engine. It cost to much. Just buy a new tv.
If that is what is happening, with no other light coming on, then I would try and unplug the tv from the wall for 30 min. Plug it back in and try turning it on. If this doesn't fix it, you will need to take it to a repair shop.
