I’ve been getting a lot of questions about how DLP Televisions work. To answer this question, I’ve decided to draw a little diagram and perhaps this will enlighten some folks out there!
The three things that typically go out on a television are the lamp, the ballast, and the color wheel. You can see the parts above and hopefully by reading our website, you’ll be able to troubleshoot your own DLP television woes. If not, you should call a trained servicer or a service center that handles these kinds of delicate repairs. Changing lamps is one thing, but when you get into the ballast or color wheel, it gets a bit more complicated–I know first hand from working with my dad on DLP TVs.
Stay tuned, and I’ll be posting some YouTube vids of me working on some of the TVs you’ll probably encounter as a servicer/technicial, or maybe you’re just an ordinary person who’s feeling up to the challenge.
