If you are not sure that the lamp is the problem, or bad, we recommend you call us to schedule a service call to troubleshoot your set, to verify the lamp is the problem.

The initial startup goes through a procedure of several circuits that have to function correctly before the lamp ballast fires the lamp, any failure in the startup circuit can still indicate a faulty lamp, but not be bad.

About Projection Lamps

Learn about bare lamps vs. housings In your television, there is a plastic housing with a lamp inside. You can either replace the lamp inside your existing housing or you can replace the entire housing unit with the lamp already preinstalled in the unit. Both options will give you the same performance - the housing allows for ease and simplicity of installation.

What is the housing? The housing is the plastic cage or cartridge that surrounds the lamp and holds it in place in your TV. When replacing your lamp you will first remove the housing unit from your TV then remove the lamp from the housing and replace it with the new lamp. The housing may slide out of the front or rear of your TV depending on the make and model. See your owner's manual for directions on removing the lamp housing unit.

Is it difficult to replace the lamp? Replacing the lamp is a simple procedure. In most cases all that is required is a Phillips screwdriver and a small adjustable

How long should my lamp last? Television lamps are rated for 4,000-6,000 hours of usage which is roughly 1 to 4 years depending on usage patterns.

How can I extend the life of my lamp? Prevent damaging voltage spikes by plugging your TV into a quality surge protector. After turning off your TV let it remain off for at least 30 minutes before turning it on again. This allows the lamp to cool to room temperature. A cool lamp is more resilient to the large voltage burst required to ignite the lamp when the TV is turned on again. Clean any screens on lamp housing, or cooling vents near the lamp. Extend the life of your lamp by keeping the area surrounding your TV well ventilated and dust free.

Are there any precautions I should take with the lamp? (Do not touch the glass surface of the new lamp). Touching the glass will deposit skin oils onto the lamp surface. When the lamp heats to its operating temperature the oil will cause a temperature difference on the lamp surface that will distort the picture and likely cause the lamp to break. Use a plastic glove or other protection when handling the lamp.

(Take care not to over tighten any of the screws when replacing the lamp). Finger-tight is sufficient. Be sure the lamp wires are secured in the wire connector on the housing and are not touching the lamp itself. Prior to turning the TV back on please ensure the housing is situated properly and all TV panels (lamp door) are closed and secured properly. Many TV have a sensor that will keep the TV from turning on if the panels are not replaced.

TV and projection lamps contain a small amount of mercury which is known to be hazardous to the environment. Proper disposal is essential, so please do not throw any lamps away with your regular trash.

We stock the hard to find Toshiba Lamps made by Phoenix.
