Investigate the Un-Expected Curve Balls!
So… literally right after my most recent post… I found out the Lamp in my 52″ Samsung went out!
Or shall I say…
Now, my husband works 2 hours away Monday through Fridays… so I am left single parenting and even having to take care of the “man” stuff around the house!
Picture it… me trying to get behind a huge TV with a screwdriver… looking up instructions on the internet on how to get to the damn lamp! All the whilst my two daughters are getting in my way and I am praying that I don’t topple the TV over! (Phew)
So I text the picture to my husband and he calls back right away…
Him- “How did you get the lamp out!?”
Me- “I looked it up on the internet!”
Him- “Oh… well looks like you’ll have to get online and order a new one… should be around $100”
Me- “Yikes… ok.”
Him- “Well… at least if it comes while I’m not there, you know how to put it back in!”
Me- “Oh Yay!”
So I got online and googled the lamp code and saw this…
BP96-00224J Samsung TV Lamp Replacement with cage assembly included. Same Day Shipping. 3 Month unconditional no-risk warranty. Lamp Assembly with High Quality Original Bulb Inside.
BP9600224J Lamp Replacement
It’s $188 on SALE?!?!
So of course I spent the next 20 minutes surfing the internet price checking (and checking the s/h fees) and finally found THIS ONE!
Yippee! Gotta love eBay! And I got eBay bucks in return for the purchase!
That’s like over $100 less!
So until I get my lamp back for this…
I’ll be watching TV on this!
