Do you have a Samsung DLP TV with a busted lamp? This is a Do-It-Yourself guide for replacing your Samsung DLP lamp, it shouldn’t take more than 5-10 minutes to replace!

All you need is a Philips screw driver and a pair of pliers.

Tools required for installation

Step 1: Remove the pull out handle on the lamp enclosure. Just squeeze one end of the handle in and it will come loose.

The back of the lamp enclosure

Here is it removed:

Pulling the handle off first

Step 2: Remove the two screws holding the metal lamp enclosure. One screw on either side (one side is
circled in the photo below).

Remove screws from the case

Now pull the metal enclosure straight up (or back in this case 🙂

Pull the metal case apart from the plastic case

Step 3: Remove the six screws show in the picture below:

Remove interior screws from the lamp brackets

Don’t forget the nut right in the middle (blue arrow)…you should be able to unscrew this with your fingers:

Remove ballast wires

Step 4: Pull out the lamp. Be careful not to loose the washer under the nut. Here is the lamp enclosure
dis-assembled..that’s was simple, right ?!?

Disassembled, it should look like this

Step 5: Now just swap out the lamp! Here is the original lamp…

Remove the original lamp

Original lamp again with the spacers separated

Pieces separated

The original lamp is on the left side…our new Samsung part is on the right. Both made by Philips.

Exchange Philips lamps. Philips is the OEM.

Here is another picture of the lamps side by side…you can’t tell which one is new and which one is defective.
Be careful not to accidentally replace your old lamp with your old lamp!

Another look at the front of the lamp

Step 6: Assemble in reverse order. First screw these two to hold the spacers in place…

Work backwords to install the lamp

Now screw in the rest. Don’t forget the most important one…put the washer on the bottom and the
nut on top…

The nut must be hand tight

The location of the lamp connectors, relative to the enclosure is not important…notice the first picture above
compared to the picture below. The first picture has the outer connector on the left side of the enclosure
whereas now the connector is on the right side of the enclosure.

Screw the terminal screw gently

Now place the metal cover back on after tighening all the screws, tighten the two screws on the metal enclosure, pop in the pull out tray…and you’re done! 🙂

Replace the cover and you're finished!

It took me about 5 minutes from enclosure removal to enclosure re-install… it might take an inexperienced user 10-15 mins.
IMPORTANT: The bulb should be handled with a clean cloth to avoid any dirt or oil. Our hands are naturally oily… this is a no-no for these lamps. It doesn’t hurt to do a final wipe with a clean, non-abrasive, lint-free cloth before reinstalling your lamp. Alternatively, you can wear a pair of latex gloves!
