Hi everyone


I have an Akai PT50DL14 DLP tv from Costco. Every research I have done suggests this is the exact same model as the Samsung HLR-5067W.


The lamp specified on the tv is BP96-01394A, however, the lamps specified for the SAmsung are BP96-00826A and BP96-01073A. The Akai lamp is $360, the samsung lamps are $199. (samsung has the akai and the samsung lamps both for sale)


I kinda suspect there is some markeking relabeling going on here. (just as how they relabled the samsung as an Akai). I strongly suspect that there is an equivalent samsung lamp that is compatible with my TV that is for less.


Does any one know how I can research the detailed specifications of these bulbs to see which if any of these samsung bulb (or any other) would be compatible with my tv??


On samsungparts.com, they show BP96-01073A with the following specs: L6, L8(L620, L680), ~ 61 inch.


For the BP96-01394A, the specs are as follows: L620, OSRAM 120W, E22, 50L4(Akai)


Even though they are similar, I am not sure what the L620 means


My lamp is still functional but if I can sort this out from now that would be great.


Any help is appreciated.


Thanks
