How to replace Toshiba lamp enclosure for your DLP TV

How to replace Toshiba lamp enclosure for your DLP TV

Step 1.- First of all, unplug the TV from the wall outlet. You have a few thousand volts going through your ballast, be very careful! It’s also a good idea to let the TV cool down for a good 15-20 minutes as the bulb itself can get extremely hot.

Locate the lamp enclosure door; it’s usually at the side of your television (it’s on the right side if you’re looking at the back of the TV).

Step 2.-There is a hexagonal screw that secures the door to the lamp enclosure.

To remove it you need to use a Hex key (also known as Allen key).

    Hey just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of
    the pictures aren’t loading properly. I’m not sure why but I think
    its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different web browsers and both
    show the same results.

    Just wondering, I was watching our Toshiba 65HM167 rear projection tv and heard a loud pop. The picture went black, but the sound was still intact. I shut the tv off immediately and researched. All arrows pointed to the lamp enclosure, so we removed it and it was DEFINITELY blown. The bulb was hanging by a wire. We ordered a replacement, installed it (per your perfect instructions), but still have no picture. Any ideas? Thank you so much!!!

      Hi Robin,
      What model do you have? Some of them need to have the lamp timer reset before the TV will work again. Sometimes when the lamp blows it can trigger a reset of picture settings to zero. If you try doing a RESET option to reset to the default values. This may bring the picture back. I would suggest joining our forum at There are people who know more than me who can help out.

    What size is the hexagon screw for the cover?

    • avatar Shelagh McNally says:

      Hi Dmitri,
      It depends on your make and model but most projector hexagon screws are a standard 6/32″ x 3/8″.

    When you put the enclosure back in, the two prongs on the enclosure and the two prongs that are inside of the TV do you push that into the two prongs in the TV. Like do you push them all the way in or just set it in there. We’re having a hard time getting hours to go in and the screws don’t line up with the housing that are inside of their. And should you be able to see the light on once you put the cover back on but the light is lit up on the Bold.

      Hi Dede,
      The prongs should go all the way in without having to push them in. Is this an OEM lamp with a Philips seal on it. If you bought it over the Internet from one of the smaller dealers it could be a counterfeit lamp.There have been problems in the past with these lamps prongs not lining up properly with the TV prongs. Don’t force anything or you could damage the electronics or optics in the TV. If the screws are perfectly aligned, the TV will think the lamp is either at end of life or missing altogether. That will trigger the shut down effect. I would start off with going back to the store where you bought this lamp and finding out if its an OEM authentic lamp or a knock off. If it’s a knock off, ask for you money back and buy an authentic lamp that is calibrated to fit into your TV. Sorry for you hassles.
