Customer Question

I've just replaced the lamp. Now the tv blinks a couple of times when turned on and powers off, leaving the red lamp light on the panel glowing. I thought it might be the lamp so I bought another one. Same thing. Is it time to take this TV to the dump?

Expert:  Anthony_Infotech replied 7 months ago.
Its not a good idea to buy poor quality lamps from ebay and this is likely to be the issue we have endless trouble with these issues you need to get the lamp from a truted source like www.dlplampsource.com <<click

There is a black market in poor quality lamps made cheaply and sold cheaply

I went on the site that you suggested. Their replacement lamp contains their "Titan" bulb at $79 or pay an additional $20 and get the OSRAM PVIP bulb. What's your recommendation?
Expert:  Anthony_Infotech replied 7 months ago.
Its only recently they have started doing this ordinarily they would only sell OEM lamps, I do not know much about the Titan BULB however I do trust the site ideally though the OEM would be better this is the genuine manuf lamp for the set Anthony
