If the lamp is blown out, you will see shards of glass floating around in the bulb. The wires that connect to the glass element in the center will be "disconnected". If the set is less than a year old the bulb is under warranty. All you will have to do is contat the people that sold you the televison and tell them the bulb is blown and do a warranty claim. Good luck!
The part required is likely to be the optical assembly which will cost more than $100 easily. This part should be available from any Panasonic parts supplier, but the cost is more that I would recommend. Check around to see if yuo can replace the unit for around that cost. In the meantime, I'll try to locate the exact part number and cost.
I ordered the cable directly from Panasonic Parts Centre but had to go to a Service Centre to get them to order the connector as it is classified as an internal part. The reasoning in this is as it is an internal part and I maybe opening the system to use it they are not allowed to sell it to me as I might electrocute myself in the process and all my family would want to take Panasonic to court for compensation.
The job itself is simple but very very tedious and time consuming. It is best to do a little bit at a time as it is less stressfull this way.The ribbon cable about £4.50 and part number REX0967. The connector you will have to show them at the service centre and they will order for you and the cost is approx £7.00. If you send me your email address I will send you all the photos I took and parts address details
I did it. I decided to go ahead with the repair myself. I have never done something like this before but it was easier than I thought. I filed off the old parts and soldered on the new. It works like a charm. Thanks.
Got mine to turn on even without the color wheel. The trick is to place the new lamp in and screw down all screws. When replacing the cover besure that the protruding plastic enters on the correct side of the wire switch in side. Tighten the lamp cover screws and do CPR on the center of the cover to ensure the wire switch has moved to the on position below the cover. Plug in the power to see if it works. If not, do CPR with your thumbs on the center of the lamp cover again. Usually this will fix it.
I'd suspect your power supply capacitors are on their last leg. replace them. -

this problem is CURED simply by replacing 2 capacitors inside on the main board. They are easily identified by a bulge on the top end of the capacitors. The capacitors are located between the heat sinks. The size is 6800uf/16v. I am a RadioShack dealer and sold a few of these in 2000/2001. I bought one for myself. I have repaired only 2 that had the same problem as listed by HAGUC above. They both are working great and for the record. . .are NOT peices of JUNK,. . .hehe. . .they just need a little TLC. Parts available from larger electronics parts houses, not at RadioShack
