To chage the bulb in a projection tV do the following

1. Turn off the television. Let it sit for 5 minutes.

2. Unplug the television from the power socket. Let it sit for 30 minutes to 1 hour.

3. Unscrew and open the door that covers the projection bulb. You will usually find this door near the outlet wire. It may have up to four screws holding it in place, usually Phillips-head screws.

4. Pull out the bulb. There should be a plastic handle that you can gently pull out to remove the bulb.

5. Remove the new lamp from its packaging without touching the glass of the bulb.

6. Line up the groove on the new bulb with the groove on the bulb housing in the television.

7. Gently push in the bulb until you hear a click.
8. Screw the projection door cover back into place, then plug in the television

I would check the CRT socket module for Cracked solder joints. If not you may be in the early stages of the CRT shorting, If so you will need a new CRT.
