Hey, guys--could use some advice.
I just tried to replace the lamp in my 3020. The old lamp came out fine, but the new one (a $125 knockoff--yeah, I know, probably not a good idea) does not light up. The fan runs for a while and then the red temperature warning light comes on after a while. No image thrown.
But the real trouble is that I can't get the non-functioning bulb out now. It's stuck good, and it's definitely not because of the attachment screws. Something that appears to be on the left side of the bulb is keeping it in there and I'm leery of putting too much force on it. And I'm not too keen to disassemble the thing, since I don't know what I'm doing.
Anyone experience something like this? Is sending it to a repair center my only viable option?
