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 of the lamp installation are for provided below showing how to replace the lamp in the 915P020010 housing.
Please use the included latex-free glove when handling the
lamp.Failure to use the glove during

surrounds the top of the bulb.Remove
the 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. There are four metal tabs with screws holding them in
place that need to be removed.The lamp

the same exact way.Install the four
metal tabs and screws to hold the lamp in place.
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.Reinstall the small plastic housing on the top of the
lamp with the screw.
reinstalling your lamp into the TV, completely reassemble the TV.All lamp doors or anything else removed to
remove the lamp from the TV must be replaced before plugging the TV back in and
turning on.Failure to do so will not
allow the TV to turn on properly.
