Where does the spark come from? Can you see it from behind the set when the power button is pressed? It could be solder related or a cracked bad flyback. Try to notice wheeit sparks from then let me know.

KF42WE610 bad lamp... and ballast?

DLP Lamp has electrodes inside and ballast generates high voltage that makes spark on these electrodes thus got high bright light. New lamp wont die due to bad ballast so replace lamp and see tv works or not.
This tv has self diagnostic feature, turn On tv and let it shut down, now check standby light that would be blinking in specific order, for example 3 or 4 times blink then pause for 3 seconds and again blinks.
Let me know how many times standby light blinking in this tv to help you with more info.

My Panasonic PT-52LCX66 worked for about a week after changing the lamp. Now it won't turn on. 3 orange power blinks and 4 red temp blinks. Please help! My husband is to hard to babysit without a TV :)

Three orange power blinks indicates a 'Malfunction 5', and that your unit requires servicing. You can try pressing POWER on the unit for over 7 seconds, and then turning the set back on after 5 more seconds. If this doesn't help the set needs servicing.

If you didn't reset the lamp timer after replacing it, you might try that by following these steps.

If you think browsing the troubleshooting section of your operating manual may help, you can access it here.

I hope that helps.
