Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Hi , I`m Jack Perhaps I can help you with this problem but first a few questions , let me know when you`re ready ?
O.k then first ;
How do you know the lamp ass`y gets power or not ?
Did you try a new lamp ?
lOL for one thing that cannot be measured like that , this is not a light bulb and if you like your meter ,don`t stick it in there again , when the lamp strikes it comes up to 2KVolts and beside the lamp wont strike with the door open anyway
The old lamp , can you see it burnt or shattered glass inside the housing ?
Melted wires ??
You mean inside the housing ?
Or where the lamp connect ?
Where did you get the new lamp and how much did you pay for it ?
A fair lamp for this tv , not talking about the real thing at $120 but some middle of the road quality would go for around $70 , you got a bad lamp , return it if you can .
both of them doing the same thing i guess ?
Well , for one thing not the same quality and even if they fired up they usually last less than 3 months and there is the question of amperage while running and striking , you could damage the ballast and /or power supply and i`m hoping its not already done although you would get something else than simply a red lamp light at the front .
Right now i can only suggest you to try a good lamp not one of those things
was there any warranty on those lamps ?
how old was the original anyway , the original ?
if the lamp that blew was the original then it went of old age
Thats is what happens when you over extend their life
give me a minute and i`ll find you a good sub
Here is one , the cost won`t kill you and it has 6 months warranty ;
Or this one with 3 months ;
I can guarrantee you that i will be around and i give this a 90% chance of success .
As far as the recycle goes you will have to check with your city bylaws , some city you can simply chuck it on the side of the road and others you have to take it to your favorite recycling center.

I gave you the numbers that normally fit with your tv model , and yes tehn its possible that you don`t have the correct lamp numbers ??
The model number you gave me is correct isn`t it ?
Thats not what you gave me at the opening
