What lamp do i need for a mitsubishi model vs-7087 projector big screen television

hello there. It's a bit of a strange question to ask. But I would first check the lamp umber printed on the lamp. I am sure there is a printed number on it. Secondly I would return the lamp to a TV retailer and purchase or order a new lamp. But if this is too much for you, you can get a lamp from the internet at possibly half the price, delivered, on Amazon and EBay. Here are a few links to try. Hope it's not too much for you but it's worth a try. Cheers.

there are bad capacitors on the power supply.
look for bulged caps
they look like this
replace the big ones on the power supply to fix the lamp issue
there are more bad ones inside typically on the dm and fmt boards
they are 1000uf - replace those ones with 680uf @ 16v caps

let me know if i can be of further assistance
