How to replace Sharp / Vizio 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!

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.
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.
