Facing TV Problems? Ask a TV Technician.
This was the second bulb replaced the first was about 2 years ago. This receent bulb. It was purchased from advanced lamps for $51.00. The correct model # XXXXX XXXXX 60A020. When nthe lamp failed the red light on the front of the tv came on. There was no picture and no sound. This is diffenent as there is no picture, but the sound remains.
Thank you for the reply. I can tell you based on the price of the lamp and the supplier alone, that the most likely suspect right now is the Lamp. These lamps can fail in multiple ways, either the lamp can pop and explode inside the TV, completely fail leaving you the red lamp light lit, with no sound or video, or lack of video but audio remaining. These lesser priced lamps use thinner glass and do not hold a gas charge like their OEM counterparts do, and will cause the exact problems you're having. You would at this stage want to replace the lamp with the correct OEM lamp for your set, as these lesser priced substitutes are simply not rated for reliable, longterm use in your TV.

Thanks for the advice. I will get a new bulb and pray for the best!
