Question about Sanyo PDP-42H2W 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television
There is no bulb in plasma tv's. LCD's have a backlight and projection tv's have bulbs.
Unfortunetly it sounds like your power supply has failed on you. It is repairable. At 3 years old I wouldn;t think you have any warrenty left (perhaps extended store type) so you want to get a repair estimate before spending any money. You may find it cheaper to get a new tv. Or not that much more. You should be able to get a estimate from Sanyo repair depots or tv repair shops or ask the local stores about repairs and they may tell you who to talk to. The repair cost can be reasonable but can get expensive if they find a lot of repairs are needed. The parts are cheap but the labor isn't (and shipping etc) so make sure you weigh out repair verse replacement to avoid a bit of a shock.
