the lamp only and replacing the bad lamp in your existing housing is a
very cost effective way that can save you up to hundreds of dollars.
The lamp installation is simple and takes only minutes to complete. The
plastic housing surrounding
the lamp is completely reusable. Picture quality and brightness will
not be affected by reusing the housing. We can safely say that because
we have thoroughly tested this
on every lamp we give advice on. If you do purchase the complete lamp
in housing you should have your old lamp housing recycled because it
contains mercury. It is also against many state laws to throw this
product in the trash. It is highly recommended when you purchase a
lamp replacement to buy a factory original OEM
(original equipment manufacturer) lamp. The two manufacturers of lamps
that TV companies use are Osram and Philips. Some
companies may debate
that Philips lamps are better than Osram or vice versa, but that is
only opinion (or sales tactics) as there are no statistics proving
one is better than the other. We have extensively tested (over 25,000
testing hours) each brand and neither
performs better or lasts longer than the other. Purchasing a lamp
any other brand is an "OEM compatible", generic, or aftermarket lamp
(DNGO, APO). This is not advised because these lamps have a fraction
of the lamp life and can possibly damage your TV.
Detailed written instructions and a video of the lamp installation are for provided below showing how to replace the lamp in the TY-LA2004 housing.
Please use the included latex-free glove when handling the
lamp.Failure to use the glove during
handling may reduce the life of the lamp.The TV must be unplugged from the outlet before removal of the
lamp.It must stay unplugged until you
are completely finished.
Reference your owner's manual to help you locate the lamp door on your TV. There are five
screws on the top of the housing that need to be removed to take off the top of
the metal case to expose the lamp.There
are two metal tabs on the sides of the lamp to remove by taking the four screws
leads connected to the lamp by unscrewing the nut and washer that hold the lead
at the top of the lamp and remove the screw to release the second lead on the
side of the lamp. Remove the old lamp
and put the new one in the same exact place.Use the two metal tabs and screws previously used to secure the lamp in
leads on the new lamp by screwing the nut and washer in place to secure the
first lead on the top of the lamp.The post on the top of the lamp is very fragile. DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN AND USE CARE OR DAMAGE MAY OCCUR. Companies will not warranty installation damage. The
second lead will screw in place on the metal tab on the side of the lamp.IMPORTANT:Please secure the metal tab on the lamp with
your fingers while installing the screw because excessive force may break the
lamp.Damage to the lamp through
installation will void your warranty.Put
the metal top back on the housing and secure it with the 5 previously used
inserting the lamp housing back into the TV, completely reassemble the TV
before plugging back into the wall outlet.To reset the lamp timer, turn the TV on first.Now hold VOL DOWN on the TV and MUTE on the remote until a message appears on
the screen about the lamp timer being reset.Make sure the remote is pointed toward the TV to receive the signal.
