6118 Hours

I had been thinking that over the Xmas holidays, and then on New Year's....that I would replace the bulb in my Samsung HLN4365W1. It had been getting darker and darker for some time, and was beginning to annoy me...especially which watching TV shows and movies that tend to be dark themselves.

But, I keep forgetting to do it before turning the TV on for the day. Being that I need to do it with the set cool.

Today I got an email from a person looking for a replacement bulb for her Samsung HLN4365W1....which made me think that I should try to remember replacing mine. She told me that looking at Sears Parts online, it would set her back like $250. And, wanted to know if I knew of somewhere cheaper. I went over to Samsungparts.com, where I had ordered my replacement bulb from...and found that they give a price of $149.99. Darn, I paid $199.99 for mine...of course, I bought it over 1.5 years ago....in preparation of a move for just in case. :**:

The bulb replacement was pretty straight forward, except that it was on the side that required contortions and later pulling the TV out to get at.

Once the set turned on...I went into the service menu to clear the lamp timer. Making note that the timer was at 6118 hours.

Interesting to note that the new bulb is a 120W, whereas the original bulb was only a 100W...where I had read somewhere that the 'Dynamic' picture mode ran the bulb at 120W. Guess the part change addresses this fact. Though I guess I've been fortunate to not experience total bulb failure.

Meanwhile, while checking out the new bulb...I noticed that Fox HD is now available on Cox.

Wonder how long before DNNA get's the lineup fixed so that I can record it using my ReplayTV? Maybe I'll have to dig out my fax machine and send them the full line up, so they can get it right.

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
