Yes, it's for safety reason. You can reset the timer and it will work normally. The bulb still have the chance to blow up though.

Hey anyone, everyone! I know I'm a little late to the party, but I'm a new owner of a panny ae3000 amd I'm excited. I sold my Sanyo Plv z60(only 720p) so I see this as a significant upgrade. I held out until I was able to find/afford a good 1080p projector that also had frame interpolation. I know a lot of purists out there hate the feature, but I think its looks great on certain types of video (heavy CGI movies, animation, sports) so I thought it was worth having. I got tired of my 50in plasma having a better picture than my projector! Now heres the $64 question... I was able to get the Panny for $950. Its a year old and and has less that 500 hrs on it. I thought that was a good deal... what do you all think? I know the ae4000 is out right now for about 2k, but that was out of price range ... and is the ae4000 really 1k better than the ae3000? By the way, I should be receiving it early next week...any calibration related things you suggest I do right away? Thanks.
