Re: Mitsubishi WL-82913 lamp

Hello Kevin,



I am having a hard time finding the lamp, I know that the ~P23 is the size of the lamp inside the housing, the wattage seems to be in the range of most lamps.



The lamp listed as the correct replacement for your TV is the Lamp Model #915P016010.. hope this helps

If the lamp is ON then the problem is not the ballast, it's most probably the DMD board, if it's off then the ballast is the most probab...

Re: Lamp or Ballast question

Hi Jimmy.

Most probably it's just the bulb again, since you watch a lot of TV it's a normal thing (it also depends on the lamp brand). There a small probability it's the ballast, however I wouldn't be sure, since your lamp lasted 4 months.

Hope this helps.
