Unplug the projector, then take the panel out of the bottom with the bulb in it (just a couple screws) and take a look at it. If it has blown you can see it. If there is glass from it, in the projector, then gently shake it out. Make sure you get it all out. There is a spinning color wheel which needs to be free from any debris. It may work with a new bulb which if you go to ebay or online, you can find many that are being sold. If you get one with a housing it is way easier to replace, but it will cost you more. Make sure it looks exactly as the one you pulled out. some are totally wrong such as the brown one I posted on here a few days ago.Figure a decent replacement might cost about $150.00, but check the sellers feedback and location before you buy one. If that is all that went wrong, you might be ok with just a new bulb, but no guarantees until you try it out. You could always buy one of the cheaper bulbs for around $65, to see if it would work first, most will come from China, again, check the feedback before buying. Never touch the new bulb itself with your fingers, it will shorten the life fast.. Good luck.
