SOURCE: TRYING TO CHANGE BULB
Here are the instructions and a link to your owners manual. Ref# page 76
On the back of the set, just below the screen, there will be two thumbscrews: one on the left, and one on the right. Loosen these.
Then pull the front panel below the screen off of the set. It may be stubborn, but if the thumb screws are loose, it will come off.
In the center, you will see a small metal bar with another thumbscrew. Loosen that, and swig the bar out of the way. That will allow you to remove the lamp compartment door.
Once you've done that, you'll see that the lamp cartridge is held in by an Allen head screw. An Allen wrench of the correct size is included with the new lamp. Loosen that screw, and you will then be able to pull out the lamp with the small handle on the cartridge.
Then just install the new cartridge, put all the screws back, make sure that tumbscrew on the metal bar is tight, or the set won't turn on at all, and you're done!

its in the front actually. on either side of the tv right behind the side there are 2 screws you may be able to undo with your hand (if not a screwdriver or a dime will work), then front cover will pull off. you'll see it right in the middle. Another hand screw and a cover will expose the bulb housing. There is a allen screw on the left that needs to be loosened and then the whole assembly should just slide out.
