There's no messages and nothing happening with the LEDs on the projector to indicate any kind of problem. The projector is over 2.5 years old now and I have over 3300 hours on the bulb. Anybody have any idea what could be wrong with it and if there's any way to fix it? It's out of warranty so I'm a bit concerned about what getting it repaired by Epson will involve.
My 5030 is also about 2.5 years old with only 1500 hours on the original bulb. I've never had any problems with it.
My first thought is maybe it's overheating, though I don't know how you would diagnose that.
Have you cleaned the filter lately?
