I'm having an issue with the power on. Please help.
Status of the bulb:
First bulb, ~1500 hrs on full mode.
The projector powers on normally without any questionable beeps or red lamps, fans work fine. BUT -> there is no picture. There is "no" light coming out the objective. I mean there is but it's so weak, I can look right into it with no problems. I can barely see the light on my palm 10 cm away from the objective. No picture is recognizable.
About a month ago it was very hot outside (and inside) like 33°C and I had used the projector for about 3-4 hours, which is not nearly the longest time it had ever been on. Then suddenly a red warning came up with something like "overheat, shutting down in 1 minute" (don't remember what exactly, didn't mind the warning). After the project had turned off I waited a couple of hours for it to cool down. After that, the project refuses to show the picture.
Approach to the problem:
In the first place I thought it was the bulb, so I ordered a cheap one from China (LMP-H201 if anybody knows) to be sure. The result was the same as with the original bulb.
Please, help me. Maybe the original bulb has really reached its life end and the one I bought is broken too (it looks creepy and almost doesn't fit in). I don't want to spend money on another bulb to find out that the project is broken.
I'll provide you with any information you need, just help me please
