Yeah, it's ancient and completely outdated.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 )
