    Forgive me, but you do know - it isn't a simple matter of unscrewing old bulbs, and screwing new ones in - don't you? The "bulbs" are actually Cathode Ray Tubes; there are three, and each has a coloured lens in front of it full of fluid. They need fairly precise alignment. Not a job for someone without experience. For what it's worth.

    I have a 46' philips rear pro and I was quoted £1300 to supply and fit these tubes. The set would need to be taken away for 3 days. Contact philips and see what they say. I didnt bother having the works carried out as I could buy a new set for that price. :)
