    Purchasing 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 of 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 915P049010 housing. 

***Important Please Read:  You must clean the dust and dirt from the vents and screens on your lamp housing before installing the new lamp.  The leads connecting to the lamp must be replaced with new ones when installing a new lamp.  Replace the old lamp leads on your housing with the leads provided with your new lamp.  When installing the new lamp, ensure the lamp wires/leads do not touch or lay on the lamp.  Failure to follow these steps will cause poor ventilation and premature failure of the lamp which will void your warranty.


1)         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. Use your TV’s user manual to help you find and access your lamp housing.  If you do not have the TV user manual, you can download and/or view it on the TV manufacturer’s website.


2)         There are two plastic tabs to push down on each side of the housing to allow you to pull the housing apart in two pieces. Remove the lamp by first removing the leads by unscrewing the two screws with metal washers that hold the lamp connector to the housing.  There are four metal tabs with screws holding the lamp in place that need to be removed.  The lamp will now be able to come free of the housing.  Note how the lamp is seated in the housing and put the replacement in the same exact way.


3)         Install the four metal tabs and screws to hold the lamp in place.  These metal tabs are flexible and will bend when screwing them down as this is normal.  Reinstall the lamp connector by seating it in the previous place and secure it with the two washers and screws.  Install the lamp leads to the new lamp with the nut and screw provided.  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.  IMPORTANT:  Arrange the lamp wires so that they do not touch the lamp.  Allowing the wires to sit on the lamp can cause premature lamp failure.  Remove any dust/dirt off of the metal mesh that surrounds the lamp housing.  Failure to do so can cause poor ventilation and premature lamp failure.  Damage to the lamp through installation will void your warranty.  Reinstall the plastic cover over the lamp locking two tabs in place.


4)         After 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.  Please reference your TV’s user manual to reset the lamp timer.
