Default Samsung 42" DLP Burning Smell and blurred picture

Not sure the model but if needed I can get it. I came home from vacation and turned the tv on and went to go take a shower. Came back into the room and a very heavy smell of something burning, further investigating found that it came from the back of the tv. The screen was blurred and looked as if it was out of focus. I turned off the tv and unplugged the unit overnight and tried it again the next morning. The unit powered on but the picture was still blurry and the smell was still there. Any ideas or is it fried???

1. Yes, the model is needed.
2. Can you post a screen shot?

Sounds as it might be Light Engine replacement time, but it could be something else.
