I recently started having issues where the unit (or lamp) will not turn on. The unit won't fire up and just "clicks". Eventually the lamp/cover light stays light (solid) and per the manual it stated that the lamp was needing to be replaced. It was far from the 2000 hr lifespan but figured that it just perhaps went bad so dropped $700 bucks on a new one.

I just installed the new lamp and nothing has changed, it just clicks and never lights up.

My serial number is 2005000 + so per my research on AVSForum one would think I don't have the mod start issues, etc.

But it does seem like the lamp is not being ignited / turned on. I have taken the new lamp out and reinstalled it to make sure that everything was connected properly.

Any suggestions on what I can do??

Thanks for any help
