How to Install a Toshiba DLP Lamp


Give your Toshiba DLP projection TV or home theater projector more years of life with a replacement bulb. Whether you need to replace a lamp in your rear- or front-projecting Toshiba product, the process---when handled carefully and deliberately---won't interrupt your home theater viewing experience for more than a few minutes. Then you'll be back to enjoying your favorite movies and television programming.

Things You'll Need

  • Phillips-head screwdriver
  • Flat-head screwdriver
  • Microfiber cloth (optional)

Installation in Toshiba DLP Projectors

  • Turn off your projector. After the projector has cooled off, turn off its power switch, disconnect its power cable and sit it upside down on your work surface. Allot your Toshiba projector about one hour for the lamp to cool.

  • Loosen the embedded screw securing the lamp cover with a Phillips-head screwdriver, and then pry the right side of the lamp cover up with a flat-head screwdriver.

  • Use your Phillips-head screwdriver to remove the two screws securing the lamp into the lamp socket. Lift the lamp out of the socket by its handle.

  • Use a microfiber cloth to handle the new lamp. Holding the lamp by its handle, insert the replacement into the lamp socket with the same alignment as the previously installed lamp.

  • Press the replacement lamp firmly into the lamp socket and secure it with the screws removed from the previous lamp. Replace the lamp cover, and tighten its embedded screw.

Installation in Toshiba DLP Projection Televisions

  • Turn off your Toshiba projection TV, remove the TV's power plug from the wall outlet and then allot the lamp approximately one hour to cool before proceeding.

  • Locate the lamp cover---usually on the bottom left side of your Toshiba projection TV---and then remove the screw securing the lamp door. Remove the lamp cover to expose the blown lamp.

  • Remove the two screws at the bottom of the lamp, and then pull the lamp out of the television by its handle. Use a microfiber cloth to handle the removal of the old lamp.

  • Use the microfiber cloth to insert the replacement bulb. Slowly, but firmly, push the replacement into its slot, with the lamp's handle side of the bulb at the bottom.

  • Secure the new lamp into place with the screws taken from the old lamp. Replace the lamp cover and screw.

Tips & Warnings

  • Depending on your Toshiba projector model, you may need to reset your projector's lamp timer. Visit Toshiba's support website for specifics on your model.
