That is a built in fail safe. Reset the lamp hours in the projector and it will go longer. The larger question is are you still satisfied with its brightness.

2050 hours on the original bulb. Sound about right?
I changed mine out somewhere over 2100 hours and it still had something like 10% life left.

Could be your settings though. I have mine in stage mode with high brightness. But maybe other settings can affect it too.

well, the new bulb is a little brighter. I'll save the old bulb as a back-up I guess. Thanks for the info!

Got the new one for $296 shipped from an AZ authorized dealer. Better than I could find on Amazon or eBay! (OEM Sharp lamp housing, not some overseas POC)

Now all I need is some smaller 3D glasses for the kids. They don't care of the PS3 glasses. Any recommendations?

The Sharp G30 glasses are perfect for kids or adults with smaller faces

if you look a few posts above, I posted a link to purchase the OEM lamps for around $85 US, you just have to swap the lamp in the original housing, I posted instructions in this thread about a year ago. They work perfect.
