Having problems with your Projection Televisions ?

I own a Philips DLP television model 50pl9126d/37 I just replaced the lamp on it less than 6 months ago and the red lamp failure light came on.

My Dlp lamp has gone bad . I have a samsung 57" tv, model number xlt5687sx/xaa. I've taken the board out and don't know how to take out or know location of lamp. Does this model have a Dlp lamp? I see an enclosure number around the lens, is lamp inside lens?

I have a mistubishi WD-Y57. I replace lamp 7 month ago, and now my tv doesn't work. I have sound but no picture. I took off the plastic grill from the back of the tv to see what it was doing when I tried to power it on. I see the fan turn on and see the light trying to cut on. It flickers light. It try two times before shutting down. If I see light flicking, does that mean the lamp isn't the problem? I tried to read the code light by holding those two buttons in front of the tv. But am not sure

Okay, so my Panasonic PT-43LC14 went black in mid show last night. The bulb is approximately 18 months old. The LED indicators upon Power On are; Power LED blinks green for approximately 70 seconds; Then the Power LED switches to Red Blink, and the LAMP indicator blinks once every 5 seconds. Service manual indicates this means lamp or ballast issue. I've inspected the lamp, and it doesn't appear to be burned out. I've disassembled the TV and check the ballast for visual issues and see none.


Check the bulb again and look at the root of where the main stem comes out inside and be sure you don't see any bubble like appearence around the stem at the bottom there. If you do see this then the bulb is bad. Otherwise try this: Hold volume do ... Panasonic PT-43LC14 43" Rear Projection HDTV

I have a Mitsubishi dlp WD62625 tv and I had a new bulb installed in Nov. 2010 by a tv repairman. After installation he re-set the tv but the yellow/red light wouldn't go off. So everytime I turn the tv on the yellow/red light stays on. Its Jan. now and just yesterday I got a message on the screen that my lamp should be replaced soon. I read something yesterday that its a possibility the ballast is bad. If so where is the ballast located and is it hard to replace?

I have replaced my lamp in my DLP model WD-62526 Mitsibishi but the screen is dark, so dark that I have to watch it with teh light off. But the funny thing is it isn't as dark as it was when it went though. I hav eremoved the back to search for the ballast but I couldn't find it. I think I would have to remove some more components of the Tv to see where it is. Could it be possible that one of the fuses could of went in the tv which is causing the tv to be dark. Also the HDMI doesn't work either.

Picture lost color to greenish black and white and rapid blinking. Lamp indicator was orange for many weeks previous. rebooted TV and lamp would not come on. Replaced lamp, now it will not power up the lamp. Is this failure just about the lamp timer/counter needing to be reset or do I need a new ballast as well? I'd like to test the bulb independently if I knew what voltage/amperage/ ACor DC to apply.

My PT-60lc14 Shut down a few seconds after the lamp turns on and has 1 "lamp" LED blink every 5 seconds. This means it is either an open thermal fuse (not open when I tested it), a cracked lamp (looks like a big blister on the upper side of the lamp base), an abnormal ballast, or an abnormal main CB. The question: Can the bulb cause the shutdown even though it still lights? Is the shutdown from current sensing on the bulb? This is not explained in the service manual. Thanks!
