Do I need another new bulb for HL-T6176 DLP TV?

by page1221 / January 19, 2013 1:35 AM PST

I have had my Samsung HL-T6176S TV for about 4 years. I replaced the bulb and tv worked for about 2 weeks. Then someone told me to replace the ballast and I did that and tv still doesn't come on. Do I need to replace the bulb again?

You'll want to test that bulb with your Ohm meter to see if it's blown.

Remember this test depends on bulb type.
