SOURCE: I replaced the lamp with the proper part #UX21513

There is no reset button for the lamp. My first resolution would be to unplug the TV, pull the lamp and try to reseat it. Sometimes the contacts are not perfect. Make sure that all panels and doors are closed as many units have a switch that must be activated with a pin on the panel and/or door. This would also keep the lamp from striking.
Also, some units have a default reset and that is done by pressing and holding the on/off button as you plug the power cord back in. Follow up with results.

You need to look for your thermal fuse and replace it, it is old and is failing after being heated for a while The glass exploding.. well that's a worry, however bad, or low quality or counterfeit units can do this.. Either that or the power supply is sensing some fault and is shutting down,you will have to troubleshoot, in that case using the manual. -

2008 73" rear proj wd-73735. Why doesn't it work after lamp replacement?

if the old lamp exploded you may have a bad ballast. I would try another lamp first to be safe. Be sure the lamp has an Osram brand bulb inside. If there is no name on the bulb, get your money back.

The bulb in my Toshiba 56hm195 exploded and over the last year about once a week when I turn the TV on the picture will show and then the TV will reboot itslef two or three times. Do I just need a new bulb...

You need to replace the Lamp. There shouldn't be a picture showing if the lamp exploded, however. You can do a simple check by pulling the lamp out and inspecting it.

I have a Toshiba model 65HM167. The bulb exploded about 6 months ago so I replaced it and everything worked fine until now. Now the TV will power on and I will get sound but no picture. The yellow light...

Unfortunately lamps go bad without the visible state of being bad. I don't know who or where you bought the lamp from but I order all my lamps through
The clicking sound you hear is the lamp inverter igniteing the lamp but the lamp is bad.

Exploding Bulb

remove the top of the projector (remove the 6 screws on the bottom and the top 2 screws on the back), use canned air, and blow every piece of dust out of every nook and cranny. also, don't get cheap lamps from "bob's house o' lamps". get the AN-XR10XLP/1 from a sharp dealer to get the full life out of a lamp. also, make sure the vents on the projector are not blocked when you use it.

check to make sure your lamp is completely in and connected properly, and the lamp door is closed completely, if still no light, pull the lamp out and make sure it is not broken from transporting it or handeling it.

Making sure you do not touch and glass portion of the lamp or surroundings. only touch plastic or "metal using clean dry paper towel for metal contact" as skin oil can destroy a lamp.
