Hello my name is Anthony
Thanks for the Question
You need to replace that lamp.
You can't tell by its temp or by looking at it if its bad, the fact its been dim and losing emission is clear that it is bad, it probably now has reached a point where it can't work at all.
Most important for these sets is that you fit an OEM lamp you can get one of those from

Yes it will because lamp is now having trouble starting from a first start as its emission is too low.
This will for sure fix it
