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.

Take care and good luck

The lamp already need replacement.To replace your lamp you need:
  • OEM RCA DLP lamp
  • flat-head screwdriver
  • T-10 & T-15 torx driver
  • pliers.
Steps: Use a pair of latex gloves.
  1. Locate the lamp through the rectangular at the back of your TV.
  2. Loosen the screw with your flat-head screwdriver.
  3. Use the two "clips" to open the compartment door.
  4. Loosen the screw on each side of the lamp enclosure.
  5. Gently pull back the tray to remove the lamp.
  6. Visually inspect the area labeled “Clip.” They are on the top and bottom of the enclosure. Between them, there is about a 3′ gap where you need to push in with your thumb to be able to pull out the rear lamp cover.
  7. Unscrew the lamp connectors with your pliers and torx driver and remove the three screws.
  8. Replace the old lamp with the new one. Be sure to put the washer back and all other parts properly.
  9. Reinstall in reverse order.

If it has "Popped" then I would expect a rather catastrophic failure, and Lamps don't go "Pop.. they just fail more likely a Capacitor, Resistor, maybe even a semiconductor... so it's off to a reputable repairman get a "quote" and proceed from there.
