This is more or less a cross post from a different forum, but after a few days they have not replied or anything, so I am giving this forum a chance.
For various reasons my x30b was never used as I first intended so it's been mainly been collecting dust since I bought it in 2012, I believe I have around 7-800 hours on my first lamp. I finally got myself a used high quality screen (Draper react 3 104") and I mount the screen on the wall, turn the projector on for the first time with new screen, and BAM no picture nothing, just Orange blinking LED lamp and warning + standby on constant red.
I've read around and from what I understand it is most likely either the bulb or the ballast. Funny thing is that by coincident or not but sometimes when I remove lamp and reattach it with power off it starts up like nothing happened.. but never turns on like normal second time without same procedure over and over. Does this point to ballast?
