As stated, I had a spare lamp. I'm not gonna miss the Super Bowl. You have only 33 posts, and you use one to try to provoke someone over their apparent misfortune? Classy.:rolleyes:

Well, how about that. The day before Super Bowl, and my lamp just went out. Good thing I kept an old lamp as a spare!


I just ordered a new one from Mitsubishi.

Class A, B, and A/B are linear amps. Class D are switching amps. I deliberately didn't mention Class D amps. This is not the proper forum, but it depends on what you're using them for. I think...

Even a "good" lamp may not work in your TV, or may damage it. You need the "right" lamp. If you trust some company on ebay, go ahead and have them replace it....
