Im confused do I replace the bulb or the entire cartridge?.... Bulbs from what I can tell are a lot cheaper than cartridges. The only local place I found that carries the bulb will only sell it to me if they put it in the cartridge for $219(total).....is this a reasonable price or should I just hunt the bulb down and install it myself?
Pull the panel off where the speakers are the entire plastic lover comes off. Next, make sure the tv is unplugged and has been off for at least 15 min, preferably longer. See the box with 4 screws take those out... it should have a set of instructions or some sign saying it contains the bulb. Anyway.. after that door comes off, peer inside and you'll see the bulb about 6-8" back and has set screws which must be unscrewed completely before it can come out. Be careful, don't yank the bulb out. Then place the new bulb in, reverse the process I told you, plug the tv in and reset the bulb when it askes if you changed the bulb.
It is really easy on mitsubishi tv's to change them... post back if I can be of further assistance.

Lamp bulb is failing. You should get a message to that effect, but sometimes if it has been replaced before it will not show it needs to be replaced. All you can do is replace the bulb, note that some of the newer replacement housing's are not exact fits, so you will need to modify it with the old housing. Good luck
I have a 50V525E and I have the same problem....My bulb is suppose to be a LM500 and I received a P22 Phillips (And I did check their web site and that is the bulb they recommend), and like you said...The 4 little glass tabs will not allow the bulb to sit flat in the housing.....
I am waiting for the vendor to answer my inquiry...But I recommend to anyone ordering a bulb...Ask if it is Phillips, and if it is...stay away.
I have the same bulb and was told by Replacement Lamps the same thing. No you can not switch the housings. I tried. The bulb is too large and does not fit in the old housing. It is the wrong lamp all together.
Long screwdriver? maybe if you consider about 3" being long (explains why wifes upset). I have replaced the bulb only and the housing with bulb several times with this pos tv. The housing and bulb is one philips screw behind the front snap off panel (the big front piece that has the hdtv stamp in bottom right corner, just pull out it has push in plastic stubs) then remove the philips screw next to the big white warning label where there is a small half circle cutout around it in the label. then one screw on the big black piece of plastic with a fold down metal handle. Then just pull strait out, little snug but as long as you loosen the screw it should slide right out. to replace just slide in whole housing replacement and tighten the 2 screws back up. As for just replacing the bulb, I buy mine off ebay and they have all come with real ez instructions. I believe there is 2 screws holding the clip for the 2 wires coming off the housing, just take that out as the new one comes with wires. you just screw on the 2 wires to new bulb tighten down the wire clip and put it back together. The housing can be just pried open with a flat head screwdriver (think there was a couple tack welds) then after new bulbs in just bend back in as much as you can, it will clear in the tv and be fine so it doesnt need to be exact. Hope this helps and if anyone wants another one of these tv's you can have mine!
