I got it from Amazon paid $32 I just checked the ball the lamp again and its blown I'm going to have to get another one and put it in and see what happens
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 2 years ago
They are copy lamps they are no good we have endless trouble with copy lamps, you need to get an OEM lamp you can get one of those from www.dlplampsource.com they only sell genuine lamps the only thing is it may cost you a $100 more but thats the only way to go.
Let me know if you need more info

I will do that and let you know. If that take care of problem. I will be more then happy to rate my experience
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 2 years ago
That's fine just make sure you get the OEM lamp and you won't have a problem. the industry is plagued by this issue of copy lamps so its nothing new anything off amazon or ebay or un-reputable companies is bad for this concerning high pressure arc lamps
Let me know
