Thanks!

 

Your Tv may just need something simple like a lamp ($140), or it could be a lot more complicated. Lamps run for about 4000-6000 hours so sooner or later you will need to replace the lamp. You can buy a lamp online (http://www.encompassparts.com/products/?BP96-01795A) and put it in yourself but I don't recommend you try anything more than that. Your user manual may give basic instructions for replacing the lamp. If not there are many videos on Youtube that show how to do it.

Thanks

Mike
