Remove lamp and look to see the socket the lamp plugs into did not get bent out of position---just check to see if it went in right and after that you put the door back(set will of course not operate if door or cover removed).
If we assume New lamp good and installed correctly the next possible issue is the Ballast which powers the lamp--Not easy on this set to check voltages---should have a plug with over 200-300 volts from power supply going to--the two wire plug from the lamp goes directly to it.
as a tip Get it done professionally It is not just a matter of popping onhe out and another in. tHThe lamp has to be set up correctly and the hours reset on screen and at the lamp site as well on many models. Many on here have done the DIY option and found they have halos around the objects on the screnn, the lamp blew in 10 mis after installation and many other problems of not being able to set the lamp hours despite it seemingly being easy from the menu.
Yes usually for a lamp to fail there is a drive problem, one must always fix the causative problem, behind the failure, or as you have seen it will simply reappear. The most common problem is "Dirty Power" to the lamp.
But I think it is a problem for the serviceman/center.
You can by the lamp online from various outlets. They usually run around $150 to $200 and are pretty easy to install at the back of the television. Make sure the TV is unplugged and use a screwdriver to remove the outer cover and loosen the lamp housing. Disconnect the connector and install the new lamp. Re-install the screws. take special care not to touch the lamp because your skin oils can cause the lamp to fail. Make sure you go into the menu for the televison when your done and rest the lamp timer.
Here is a link to a web-site that sells lamps. Definently shop around prices can very greatly.
I had the same problem took it in and it was the bulb had over heated and blew out. The bulb is $199.00(here in wisconsin).After teh repair i called hitachi they told me i could have done it myself without having to take the tv in...Hope this helps.....
The best instructions for replacing the lamp can be found in the

Your bulb may be blowing because of airflow issues or power cycling issues, first does your outlet get switched off at any point in time? if so you may be killing the bulb before it cools, if you turn the set on/off alot and or restart it after off quickly this could lead to permature bulb failure, if the original lamp was not replaced with a proper lamp to match the ballast it could blow the bulb. If your tv is too near a heat vent or the airflow thru the set is not adequate it could blow the bulb.
