Sorry to hear that you're having trouble, but I'll do my best to help you. Please give me a few moments to review your details here.

Are you saying the new lamp blew immediately too? Or just that it won't turn on (or cycles on/off)?
Can you tell me exactly what you see from the front panel indicators (color, solid/flashing/pattern)?
