Your Zenith projector TV displays images onto its screen by use of a small, powerful and specially designed bulb that is installed inside the TV. Just like any other bulb, the bulb in your Zenith projector TV eventually will go out. When that time is close, the TV will warn you that it's time to replace the bulb to keep the TV in working order. Once you have bought a new bulb, replacing the bulb is a process that is designed to be user-friendly.
Things You'll Need
- Zenith projector TV
- Replacement bulb
- Clean cloth
- Philips head screwdriver
Turn off the TV and allow it to cool completely. Disconnect the TV from the power and remove the new bulb from its packaging, handling it with a clean cloth at all times.
Turn the TV around. The lamp door is located near the bottom of the TV's rear. Unscrew the screws holding the door and place them with the removed door.
Unscrew the metal cage and pull up to remove it, using the cage's handle. Remove the clips and screws holding the bulb in place. Disconnect all wires from the old bulb, making sure to keep hold of the nuts to affix them to the new bulb.
Affix the connector wires to the new bulb. Replace the clips and screw the bulb cage back into place. Insert the bulb cage back into the rear of the TV exactly as you found it and replace the lamp door.
Tips & Warnings
- Never handle the new bulb with your bare hands. If the oils from your skin come into contact with the bulb, they can cause it to blow or shatter. This applies no matter how clean your skin is.
- Perform the operation on a clean floor and make sure not to misplace any of the small screws or nuts holding the bulb in place.
