I recommend a lamp from Brightech, they have a 5-year warranty on all of their lamps -

I really liked this one -

I saw where some of the ott bulbs look like other bulbs but will not work. Are you sure you purchased the exact same bulb.(If you have one which does not interchange.
Are you sure you have the correct bulb.

Odd problem with ceiling fan and LED

This is a common issue with LED bulbs in the application that you have it installed in, When you changed the socket it reset the unit. Most of those wont ever see an LED because the LED wont draw enough current. Then control box depends on a current draw in order to stay on. LEED bulbs don't have enough current draw.

Why does my Ott light flicker but not come on completely?

check and replace bulb first, if not that then most likely a ballast problem, which sends a boost of the correct amount of power to ignite the bulb then lessens the flow of power it needs to stay lit.

Is it the ballast or the bulb which is faulty?

Put a new bulb in, if it works, the bulb was a problem, if it still flickers, the ballast is a problem.

The on/off switch seems to be broken

If you haven't used it in a while or if it is in a cold area, it may be a warmup issue, try turning it on a waiting a few seconds, even in the best time there is a delay. You are correct to expect the bulb to last a long time most Ott bulbs do last!

Removal of burnt out bulb in ott lite

Depending on lamp the bulb is approximately a 1/8 turn with a slight push toward the base to release the bulb, If you have not purchased the replacement bulb take the old one with you, some "high end" lamp stores will have replacements, if not the website will help. Good Luck!

Replaced bulb now shows only triangle with exclamation mark. no picture and nothing else works

Check your lamp door. If it looks good, remove it. Now, push the lamp door up. Reach around the TV with the remote and try to turn it on. If it comes on, your lamp door wasn't on right. If it doesn't, you may have something going on below the lamp. It the lamp exploded, the hot glass fell out of the lamp and went down into the cooling fan below. It may be stopping it from turning. I hope this helps, best wishes.
