Re: Mitsubishi wd-60638 won't turn on

Hello,



It sounds like the ballast is not putting out the proper voltage to ignite your new lamp. If your TV is anywhere near 5 yrs or older this is common.

Re: Samsung turns off after a few minutes

Hello,



If your TV is 5 years or older I would definitely look into replacing the ballast. That is they're average life span. If not replaced they do begin to have issues the most common would be lamp not igniting or lamp suddenly shutting off.
