I'm going to take a guess and say that the buzzing noise and burning smell was either a transformer or a blown capacitor (more likely). It's likely that your old lamp was still good and there is a problem at the circuit level.
If you or someone you know is comfortable with electronics, you may want to open it up and take a look. If there is a blown capacitor it will be obvious. Take a look at badcaps.net or Youtube for help on identifying them.
If you don't feel comfortable working on the inside of a TV it's probably time to get a new one. Repairs will not be cheap and they won't be worth it.
