Default Replacing Lamp on LG DLP

Hi,

I have an LG DLP (RU-52SZ51D). Been a good TV and I'm happy with it. Coming up on the 2 year mark and the orange LED came on indicating that the lamp is nearing the end of it's life. I expected this...no big deal. The LG owners manual does not list any tech info on the lamp part # nor replacement instructions. I emailed LG and got this response today:

I don't mind spending the $250 or so on the lamp, but I'll be damned if I'm gonna pay someone a few hundred to "change a light bulb". LG obviously doesn't want us to have this super secret info and it pisses me off that they won't give me this info for a product I spent a lot of money on. From researching other model DLP's that actually include lamp replacement instructions, the procedure looks really simple. I've been unable to find much on LG models, though, except the lamp part # which seems to be Zenith 6912B22002C. Can anyone help me with:
  • An LG service manual or lamp replacement instructions
  • How to reset the lamp hours on the TV
  • Anything else I many need to know?

Thanks for reading and for any info you may be able to provide.

Brian.

Actually the LG service manuals donít show/describe lamp replacement. As far as I can see from the diagram, the lamp is behind the side door/cover on the right side. There is another shield on the light box and the bulb/reflector unit is in there. This is an basic bulb, not a module like many of the other RPTVs, probably why it is not considered a user replaceable bulb.

Default Replacement Bulb

I just replaced the bulb/lamp on my LG RU-52SZ51D TV. It was fairly simple. Basically you have 2 screws that hold on the cover panel on the right side of the TV. Once you take off the cover, you'll then see a metal tray with a handle. That has 3 screws, you can then pull out the tray and see the bulb/lamp. The lamp has 3 more screws that hold the little brackets that hold the lamp in place. Last you have the 2 power wires. One is connected by a screw on the left of the lamp, the other is attached by a nut and a washer on the back of the lamp, where you would usually screw in a normal light. The two wires are just connected to a single plug to the right of the lamp which you can remove, you get the new lamp with the wires already attached. All you have to do is plug it in after you mount it back up. Here is the info on purchasing a lamp, sorry but I am still in the process of learning how to reset the lamp indicator light...

Website:http://www.partstore.com/ProductDeta...ModelID=491016

Zenith Projection TV Lamp
Zenith Part Number: 6912B22002C
LG Electronics Model: RU52SZ51D

Don't miss your favorite programs, keep an extra Zenith TV lamp on hand. NOTE: THIS PART IS MANUFACTURED BY OSRAM. IF THE OLD LAMP WAS MADE BY OSRAM, USE THIS PART.

Price: $ 273.83

Hope this helps everyone!!!

Default Lamp Replacement & Lamp Indicator Reset

You have to purchase a remote to reset the lamp indicator. I purchased one online. The remote you need is:

LG
Adjust Remocon
105-201M

I purchased it from: NewRemoteControl.com

Default Lamps DLP RU-44SZ61D

I purchased 2 lamps for subject TV on ebay for considerably less than the $273 listed above. The replacement is very simple and is described above. Use cloth gloves when replacing the lamp to keep lamp free of body oil. BTW, LG will not sell you the lamps. They said they used to sell them to customers but they discontinued the practice. I purchased one from them a year ago for $200 plus tax and shipping.

Default dlp lightbulbs lg warranty

I was told not to buy two at a time because the warranty begins at the date of purchase. The other one will most likely be out of warranty when you put it in. I also read in another forum these two things (I have an LG DLP)

1. You can call LG when the warning light comes on and they will replace under warranty (the yellow light) if you wait for the red you are out of luck.

2. I believe it said to reset the replacement bulb light you have to hit enter on the tv and mute on the remote at the same time for 5 seconds, then a menu will appear to either see how many hours you have left on your bulb or reset the light.

hope it works!
