    and the screen flickers when it pops (sounds like electricity zapping). does that mean my bulb is going to go soon?

    What brand?

    Has the bulb light turned on?

    Is it connected to a surge protector?

    rca. not sure of the model, i'm at school right now.

    yes the tv was running but the screen would flicker + zapping noise

    it's on a really good surge protector.

    If its the bulb there is a bulb light on the set itself that would go off.

    If its under warranty just tell rca that your bulb is out and they will send a tech to your house.

    If that isn't it I can tell you that some other part might need replacing.

    I'm not a tech by any means ( I only sell ) and dlps (depending on the brand) are prone to problems.

    Depending on your current dlp size you can get a 65" for a little over 2k.

    You need to find out if it's only the bulb that's your problem. If it isn't look into how much it would be to fix it (if it's not under warrantyt) and make a decision whether it's time for a new set.
