I get no power to the lamp assembly although a red lamp light comes on on the Mitsubishi WD60733. Is there a fuse or something? When the lamp went it made an audible pop.

Hi , I`m Jack

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Okay, I'm ready.
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 2 years ago

O.k then first ;

How do you know the lamp ass`y gets power or not ?

Did you try a new lamp ?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Yeah, we tried a new lamp and stuck a probe in the terminals and got no indication of current. It's a WD-65733 Mitsubishi by the way.
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 2 years ago

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

Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 2 years ago

The old lamp , can you see it burnt or shattered glass inside the housing ?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Well, it isn't a meter only a light with probes. Yes, shattered glass and melted wires.
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 2 years ago

Melted wires ??

You mean inside the housing ?

Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 2 years ago

Or where the lamp connect ?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Yeah, the filaments.
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 2 years ago

Where did you get the new lamp and how much did you pay for it ?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Electrified Discounters, Inc at $18.95.
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 2 years ago

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 .

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
All right. Seemed like a good deal so I got 2 of them with free shipping.
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 2 years ago

both of them doing the same thing i guess ?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
You got it. Why so expensive? Do they have to handle 2Kv? These look just the same as the original.
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 2 years ago

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

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Okay. What would cause the original to blow up? Some kind of short or something?
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 2 years ago

was there any warranty on those lamps ?

Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 2 years ago

how old was the original anyway , the original ?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Yeah, I can send them back I think. They're from Ebay of course.
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 2 years ago

if the lamp that blew was the original then it went of old age

Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 2 years ago

Thats is what happens when you over extend their life

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Presumably it was the original. The TV was a gift and used at the time and has since had the mirror replaced.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
It's a 2007 model. Don't know if it's worth adding another $120 to hope it works.
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 2 years ago

give me a minute and i`ll find you a good sub

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Cool. What if it turns out not to be the lamp? Any suggestions? If it doesn't I guess you'll still be available. Know of anyplace to recycle the tv if we decide to scrap it?
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 2 years ago

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.

The number on the bottom of the original lamp and both cheap replacements is 915P061010. Different than the ones you're suggesting. Possible problem?
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 2 years ago

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 ??

Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 2 years ago

The model number you gave me is correct isn`t it ?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Yeah, it's on the label on the back of the tv, WD-65733.
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 2 years ago

Thats not what you gave me at the opening
