Pull off the front silver panel ... it is about 3' long and about 4" wide. It pulls off easily. below this panel on your left side you will see a small black panel held in when one Phillips screw. Remove this screw and the panel will slide to your left. This exposes the lamp unit which in turn is fastened with one brass coloured screw. Loosen this screw (screw stays attached to the lamp housing) and then simply pull the lamp unit forward to remove. Word of caution ... do not remove if the lamp is hot ... wait until it cools down. This procedure sound difficult but is really quite simple. I have replaced my lamp on twice already.

First of all, unplug the TV from the wall outlet. You have a few thousand volts going through your ballast, be very careful! It's also a good idea to let the TV cool down for a good 15-20 minutes as the bulb itself can get extremely hot.
Locate the lamp enclosure door; it's usually at the back of your television. There is a screws on the bottom of the lamp door, remove them using a Philips screw driver. Take the lamp door out by dismounting it from the bottom. inside you'll find the lamp enclosure, On the side of the plastic enclosure there is a screw that secures the enclosure, uninstall it with a Philips screwdriver. Pull it out the old enclosure from your TV and slide in the new one. Reinstall the screw on the lamp enclosure. Place the lamp door back in its place. Secure it tightly with the screws on the bottom of the door.
If your tv is around 2-4 yrs or used 6000-8000 hrs,never replaced the lamp before it could be time to replace it.The other most common failure is the board that powers the lamp,which is called the ballast.When its bad it will make a clicking sound or like wanting to turn on.The part # for your lamp is TYLA1000 you can find it here:http://www.discount-merchant.com/Panasonic-TY-LA1000-Lamp-DLP-TV-bare-lamp-p/panasonic-ty-la1000-lamp.htm Good luck and God bless you!
