On the front, under the screen there is a large plastic cover. The far right side of the cover has the black decals "HDTV 1080i" and "VIVA bb3 sound" on it. There aren't any screws holding it on, just pressure snaps. Pull the sides of it off gently and the three or so foot long panel will come loose. You'll see a black plastic panel now with two doors, one in the middle and one on the left of the middle door. The one on the left has a white lamp warning label decal and a black screw holding it in place. Remove the screw and take off the door. Inside is the lamp housing. Some models have a a screw on the right side of the black plastic housing, holding it in place. Take out that screw and pull the housing directly out toward you. You now have the lamp housing. If you are replacing it with a new lamp and housing just push the new on into place and reassemble, you're all done. If you are replacing just the lamp, you have a little more disasembling to do. But its not hard. If you need further help, post a comment and I'll send pictures. Good Luck.

    Unfortunately, the screw holding the lamp housing is stripped, I guess, because after turning and turning, it doesn't come out. I'm not sure what to do. Do I get needle nose pliers and force it out? What other suggestions might be helpful in removing the screw.

Can't remove screw on lamp cover panel PT-43LC14

Using a phillips head screw driver, you need to grip the unit with your left hand and then push really hard against the screw head before starting to turn the screw. They are very tight from the factory. Once it breaks loose and starts to unscrew, the rest is easy.

lamp replacement on this set is through the front of the unit... the bottom front panel is removed to acess the lamp door. Place your fingertips under the front cover and pull it from the display. there will be a lamp cover door with a screw to remove. then you will have to loosen the screws in the lamp and pull the lamp out
