OK, I just lost my second bulb within 6 months. The kicker is after I lost the bulb the first time, I moved the set down to the playroom, so the new bulb can't have 100 hours on it.
With that said, my daughter noticed the TV would not come on yesterday, so last night I pulled the bulb and it was trashed. We had had some violent storms recently, but the TV was not on during the storms.
So is it possible for the bulb to get damaged by a surge when the TV is off? I know the TV is not actually off as there is still power going to it, but the bulb is off.
I have a surge protector on the TV and whole house surge protectors as well.
Any ideas. Thanks.
