Long story short back in 2005 i bought a Toshiba DLP 52 inch T.V. After many years of service the bulb has blown. This T.V is at my Brooklyn residence it sees lots of use maybe 3 months out of the year. I thought rather then spend 5-7 hundred dollars to repair it. I would go out and buy a LCD flat screen for around the same money. Well i did and boy it was a mistake. I mean its an okay picture but nothing compared to the $4,000 Toshiba. My plan is to put the Toshiba in my bedroom sorta like retire it as i rarely watch T.V in Bed. My buddy says the bulb is easy to replace rather then spend so much money at the repair shop. I opened the door and removed it its burnt out alright. My question is does anybody familiar with electronics know of a reputable vendor to buy an original replacement bulb. I have read many tales of counterfeited fake bulbs that blow up inside the T.V and ruin it. Thanks in advance.
