The one I asked said "try it and see." I bet that what he does!
Model SP50L7HX (on a stand) - The corner of the lamp blew off (a loud bang and sound of shattered glass) and in doing so cracked the small square piece of glass set in the chassis between the lamp and the colour wheel. Does anyone know if this crack will cause a fault on the picture if I replace the lamp? If so, can you get a replacement glass or could I put any piece of glass back in its place? Don't want to spend too much money as its an old tv.
