Hi Louie,
My husband has been a technician for over 50 years! We also own our own business.
This set has a November 2006 manufacture date! The customer had replaced the lamp before we got the set!
We replaced the lamp and it played about 8 hrs.We turned it off and the next morning it would not come back on. Lamp #
B96-0147A Note:The same thing happened with the customer and we assumed he had a bad bulb!

Hi, its possible the lamp was defective, but I would suspect the lamp driver(ballast).

That part supplies the high voltage needed to power the lamp and it sometimes will fail after a lamp replacement.

It is easy to replace and I will help, there is no soldering needed just a couple of plug in connectors is all.

You can get a replacement lamp ballast from this link: https://www.partstore.com

I would call to place the order: 1-***-***-****

I will stick with you until this is complete.

Please rate kindly thus far, it won't cost you anything to rate my service to you kindly,

Then you can reach me by simply replying to this message anytime.

Thank you and have a nice day!

Tech Michael
