I replaced it because tv was on but we were not able to see picture.

Where did you get the new lamp from please and for what price?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I got a compatible replacement bulb from Amazon for $20. This would be the 222nd time I replaced the bulb. I 1st replaced it back in 2010.

No you can't fit amazon or ebay lamps they are all copies you need to fit a genuine OEM lamp from mitsy themselves here

https://mitsuparts.3diamonds.com/

It will cost way more than $20 but this is the way it is I am afraid

Let me know you understand this please

I notice I am not getting a connection to mitsubishi site if you do not either you can use www.dlplampsource.com for a genuine lamp,by the way the lamp will last MUCH longer likely 4 years for normal use

The picture brightness will then be fine ,we have endless trouble with copy poorly made lamps

Let me know your thoughts please...
