    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 TBL4-LMP housing. 


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 is one screw on the metal back of the housing to remove to pull that metal cover off of the housing to reveal the lamp inside.  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.

 

3)         There are two metal brackets that hold the lamp in place.  Remove the corresponding three screws to remove the metal brackets and free the lamp.  Put the new lamp in the same place the old one was placed.  Reinstall the metal brackets in the same position they were before and secure them with the three previously used screws. 

 

4)         Install the 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. 

 

5)         Reinstall the metal cover back into the original position it was placed and secure it with the previously used screw.   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.
