Yeah, it's ancient and completely outdated. OK, that's out of the way. :-)

The lamp safety feature is shutting off the projector. I'm guessing it's the lamp timer. Last time this happened about 5 years ago I sent it in and Runco gave me a 2nd new bulb in addition to replacing the original, which was cool of them. It was easy enough to swap that in but the projector is still shutting off so I'm thinking the timer needs to be reset. Anyone know how to do that with this guy? I found a list of service codes for Runco products but the lamp doesn't stay lit long enough to see if the code I have even works. I'm guessing there is another sequence for resetting the timer itself.

( and yes I'm starting to look at new projectors thank you wink.gif )

I would call them. The PJ is old enough I do not think they will keep the code from you. If they do not provide the reset information let me know in a PM.

I have a support email into them, let's hope they simply give me the button sequence. That's usually what it is right, since often one can't see the screen?

They are located within a 30 minute drive though if I need to drop it off. A relay may have been involved last time this happened if I remember right.
