How to replace Mistubishi lamp enclosure for your projection TV.

Step 1.- Before you start doing anything, unplug the TV from the wall outlet. There are a few thousand volts going through your ballast, be very careful! It’s also a good idea to let the TV cool down for at least 15-20 minutes as the bulb itself can get extremely hot and you can severely burn your hand.

Step 2.- On the front of your TV locate the lamp door below the TV screen.


Use a Philips screw driver to unlock it and remove it.


 Step 3.- Inside you’ll be able to find the lamp enclosure.

Uninstall the two screws holding the enclosure in place.


Step 4.- Pull it out from your TV using the metal handle.


The inside will look something like this.


Step 5.- Place the new enclosure inside & secure it in place using the screwdriver.


Step 6.- Place the lamp door before trying to turn the TV, that’s because there is a white switch that needs to be pressed in order to turn on.


Step 7.- Reinstall the screw on the lamp door and your finished.

      Hi Greg,
      Do you mean discount-merchant lamps? I would contact them directly at 1-800-281-8860 to discuss the problem. They have a very good return policy. It sounds like the lamp was either damaged or hasn’t been calibrate properly.
