My projector keeps shutting down after 15-20mins with about 2790 hrs on the lamp with a replace lamp message.
ok my ae3000 just hit 2731 hours and now it is shutting off too after a few minutes. ugh! i thought maybe it was the filter and i just cleaned it but it still shut off again.
is this thing SUPPOSED to turn off like this? my old sanyo z2 i have in the family room has over 7000 hours on the original bulb and still runs every day just fine.
the wife is freaking out as we have a bunch of relatives flying in today and the theater is our entertainment showpiece.
anyone else have this problem? im also wondering if it could be the very old UPS i have it connected to, maybe not providing enough power?
the temp light is not on and the lamp light is RED when after it shuts off
