In my case, to be more specific, the male socket fitting on the new lamp is held in a fixed place in the lamp housing by a small philips screw. When this screw is loosened the male socket fitting position can be adjusted. In my case I had to move the socket outward about 1/4" to come anywhere near matching up with the female socket in the TV. The only way you can know this is if you take the back off the TV and remove the outer housing part to see what's going on.

New lamp for mitsubishi mod. wd-62628 will not go in to match up as old did. new lamp #:915po26010


With the lamp removed (a common issue here) look to see the 2 pin socket the lamp engages did not get bent or moved to one side--if so it has to be got at from inside and the rear-----one tiny screw usually holds it in place----you should be able to see if socket with lamp out is in correct position or NOT.

How do i remove lamp to replace it? Thank you


Hello there,
Please follow the steps below to be able to replace the lamp,
  1. Park the vehicle on a level surface. Turn off the engine.
  2. Remove the four pushpins located on the underside of the protective shield on the front of the vehicle. Remove the protective shield from the vehicle.
  3. Reach behind the front bumper area from under the vehicle to access the lamp housing.
  4. Remove the largest bulb socket from the housing by rotating the socket counterclockwise. Disconnect the electrical connector from the bulb by lifting the two plastic clips at the base of the bulb.
  5. Pull the burned-out bulb out. Replace it with a new bulb by pushing the new bulb directly into the socket. Reconnect the electrical connector to the socket. Place the socket back into the housing. Rotate it clockwise to secure it in place.
  6. Reattach the protective shield to the front of the vehicle by reinstalling the pushpins.
Hope this helped. Goodluck Elect_Comp

How do you replace a brake light?


serjoijr: To replace the bulb, you must remove the tail lamp housing.
Open the tailgate. There are two screws which retain the lamp housing to the body. You can see them when you open the tail gate, One is near the top and one is near the bottom. They are a phillips head type screw.
Remove both screws and pull the lamp housing directly backwards. DO NOT TWIST IT TO THE SIDE! The housing has a pin on the opposite side which interlocks with the body, keeping it in place on that side.
Once you have pulled the housing away from the body, you will see the lamp sockets and wiring harness. These sockets usually rotate to one side or another to interlock with the housing. Once the socket is removed, you can replace the bulb and return the housing back to the original spot.

How do I replace the headlight assembly on a 2006 sebring?


  1. Remove the front bumper cover
  2. Remove the upper headlight housing mounting bolt and pushpin
  3. Remove the lower headlight housing mounting bolts
  4. Pull out the headlight housing assembly and disconnect the electrical connector.
Its pretty easy. Just raise the hood, see the two silver 8mm cap screws on top of the cross member that supports the radiator and fan assembly. Two screws on each side above the headlight housings. The outer screw is right next to the corner of the fender when the hood is raised. Remove the two screws, then the headlight assembly is loose. Just gently pull the headlight assembly forward enought to see the three lamp socket holders on the back side of the headlight assembly. From the outside corner to the inside are first, the parking turn signal, then the low beam lamp and finally the last, the high beam lamp. To remove the lamp socket, push the small plastic locking tab and turn the socket assemby counter clockwise about a half turn and remove the lamp. Now you can replace the lamp and install it back the same way you took it out. Don't touch the new lamp glass with your bare fingers. Oil from you skin will absorb into the glass causing the glass to turn dark and shorten the lamp life.

How do you replace the bulb on a Kodak Carousel 600?


This post is a few months old but in case this come sup again: Assuming you have a 4000 series projector, withdraw the lamp housing after unplugging the projector. THe kind of clasp will vary a bit but it's more or less in the centre of the lamp housing which is located at the rear, right of the projector. The housing will stop just before you pull it out entirely. If you must, pull it gently but firmly some more, but it's not theoretically required. If you pull it all the way out you'll need to be careful re-inserting it so check out how it slides in and out before removing the whole lamp module.

Over the top of the lamp you will see a metal , bent "spring" that pushes down on the rear of the bulb.The spring terminates over and beside the bulb, hooked into the lamp housing. Press down on it a bit and outward to unhook it. Now don't yank it up but gently and firmly pull it so that the back of the lamp rises with it. You may not see it at this point but there is a corresponding bit of metal spring under the bulb, pushing up on the back of the bulb (where the electrical contacts are). In theory this will bring the bulb up enough to clear the socket and you should see the two electrical contacts (prongs) of the bulb. In practice, sometimes the bulbs stick inside the socket. Replacements sockets are hard to get and can be expensive so if it sticks, easy off a bit on the upward pressure, gently press down a bit on the (cooled) bulb a the back, and try it again.

You may or may not need to put a small finger under the bulb to ease it out of the holder. These weren't the easiest to operate lamp holders!

When inserting a new bulb, just reverse the above, You may want to gently press (too hard may crack the socket!) on the back of the new bulb as it goes into the socket. You want that bulb in there firmly so it doesn't arc electricity, which will corrode the lamp sockets and the bulb's prongs. Be careful to keep the lamp as even (level) as possible when reinserting it so the bulb doesn't crack. On the off chance it does, most times it will still operate satisfactorily as long as the prongs are firlmy in the socket.
