You need to be sure you're purchasing the correct lamp. The AKAI's are tricking because some of the TVs used a 5kV lamp and some used a 15kV lamp...these are not interchangeable and it's probably what happened to you!
First thing I would do is be sure it's the lamp. You can use the lamp troubleshooting wizard here to diagnose it:
It may be a bad ballast or even a color wheel, but if it is the lamp, I would also suggest looking at how to replace the lamp on your own, as it's much cheaper than spending #300-$400 fom an AKAI distributor (which probably doesn't have it in stock).
For the replacement instructions, go here:
Hope that helps!
