While it is possible to get a bare lamp it is not recommended as the additional cost to purchase the complete unit with the lamp housing is not much more. If you have to change the bare lamp yourself it is very easy to damage the lamp or housing in the process and potentially cost yourself a lot more in the long run in addition to ending up with a poor picture. If you need help with a source to purchase the lamp let me know. Thanks Nathan
