SOURCE: Where is the lamp housing unit & how do I remove it?

The lamp is in the front of the TV. Pop off the gray cover, about the width of the screen, located just left of the power button. You will then see a bunch of warning labels on the left. Unscrew the one screw that is there and take that piece off. There's your lamp. Unscrew the screw on the right of the lamp and the lamp will slide out.

I just fixed my problem. I was getting the lamp needs to be replaced window so I proceeded to hold down the low volume key on the tv while holding the tv/video key on the remote. I waited a few seconds and let go when the green power button on the tv comes on. Once the tv is on you see all this weird data. Scroll down to the lamp hour section and hold down the low volume key on the front of the tv while using the down arrow on the remote to bring the lamp number to 0. Once this is zero then turn off then turn on again and you should see no more message.

Pull off the panel below the screen.
Remove the two screws hold the 2nd cover from the left.
Remove one screw from the lamp module and pull it out.
Buy the lamp module. It is not worth it to try replacing the lamp. You can damage the bulb easily.

TVs have a lamp inside which produces white light. The color wheel is responsible for giving color to that light. This color wheel lasts between two to five years depending on the daily use of the TV. Most of the time when the central barring of the wheel is loose, unstable, or out of place it will cause the edge of the wheel to make contact with the housing, producing that whining, whirling, screeching or hissing sound. These sounds can either produce just an annoying sound when watching TV or can cause the TV to shut off. When this happens you'll have to replace it.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

2002 4 ton Bryant air conditioner shuts off, fan still runs but not cooling is problem in the controls in the attic or in the AC unit or both?

With a non heat pump it is a simple 24 volt AC control circuit. In the attic there is a relay that is actuated via the fan control wire directly from the thermostat. On the thermostat there is an auto/man switch that controls the fan. Manual the fan runs all the time. Auto fan turns on and off with the outside compressor.

If the system is not calling for cool and the fan continues to run the fan relay is sticking. common problem. Sometimes after running for several days the relay will stop sticking if not, replace relay.

If the system is calling for cool and the compressor stops I would still expect the fan to run until thermostat tells the A/C to off. Some compressor units include a safety switch or high-pressure cut-out switch A blocked internal valve bad control board or external fan in outside unit defective no air flow in outside unit.
High pressure cut out not good,

Suggest turning temp max cool and observe. If acceptable cool and the compressor runs without interruption all is good, except for the blower in the attic. Safely check relay in attic blower circuit.

Hope this helps.

Condenser Fan Shuts off after 15-20min, Compressor continues to run but gets hot

Condenser fan motor or motor wiring is bad. That compressor should never run without the fan. Good luck.

Hey chandralebea,

Try first by replacing the cooling fan engine temp sensor switch, as this may be the cause.

I've a Bryant AC/Heat system. Model 661CJ030-A. It run cool okay but the fan kept to running even get to the point that has been set.The system seemed not auto stop. Any ideas,

Hi if the indoor fan continues to run after the unit is done cooling, you either have a fan relay located in the indoor unit that is bad or stuck, or a problem in the thermostat with the fan contacts not opening when its satisfied. Pull the cover from the thermostat to expose the wiring. Find the G/Green wire. This is the fan wire. Take a small screw driver and carefully loosen screw and take this wire off. Give it a couple of minutes to see if it shuts off. If it does shut off, the thermostat is faulty and you will need a new one. If it still runs, you will have to check the indoor unit and find the fan relay. If this system is gas fired for heat, it will have a combination fan/High limit control that is the problem, more then likely stuck. Look at the wiring diagram on the panel and it will show you the fan control. You can try tapping on it to see if you can un- stick it. If not, it will need to be replaced. If its just a fan relay, it will be black about the size of a wooded match box with around 5 wire terminals on it. If you have someone turn the stat on and you should be able to hear it click. Do the checks with the stat and let me no the out come and we can go from there.

2001 Jeep Grand cherokee cooling fan runs on

Likely your fan relay internal contacts have burned closed. Relay should be either in the power distribution center or in front of the battery.

RV air conditioner. Compressor running, fan stops before cool

The fan motor is getting hot and going off on the internal overload in the motor.
This is caused by either a low voltage, a bad capacitor, or tight or dry bearings in the motor.
To check the bearings turn the power off to the unit, then spin the fan blade if it spins freely then the bearings are ok.
To check the capacitor you will need some kind of tester or you can buy a capacitor and replace it, that's what a lot of people do. They usually don't cost very much.
To check the voltage you will need a voltmeter and measure the volts at the unit.

Fan runs, shuts down on cool

Sounds like a power supply problem. There is enough power to run the fan but when you turn it to cool the current draw by the compressor drops the voltage. The lower power light is telling you the answer to your problem.

Haier ESA 3185 AC won't cool; makes escalating loud vibrating noise near front panel/ filter

Have someone check the run capacitor of this unit. If the run capacitor is bad over shorted it can cause the unit to run and short cycle on a current overdraw. This makes for an electrical imbalance in the compressor motor. Next step is the compressor is faulty.
