If you can clean it and it comes off I would do it. This haze is caused by the extra heat the bulb was putting out before it blew. Make sure you blow/clean out all the dust you can. These TV's have a air intake filter also I believe. The more you can keep the filter clean and the Light Engine the better. Blessings, A/V Media Tech Guy
Yes, you'll need to replace the bulb. Since no electronics stores stock rear projection bulbs, you'll need to look online for the actual lamp. You can get by for awhile by removing the lamp and blowing on it to remove any dust. I did this with mine, but the fix only lasted a few weeks. I was able to find a new lamp online for around $100 and my wife was able to replace it without issue.
Your owner's manual for the television will contain a troubleshooting section that will describe the blinking codes for the various lights, and what they mean.
However, in your case, it probably means the light is burned out.
The bulb on my TV tends to burn out about every 16 months (I watch TV for many hours per day, so your experience may be different). If your TV is still under warranty, I would suggest you contact the store where it was purchased, or contact the manufacturer.
