Hardest part about exchanging the HC3800 lamp (and housing) was getting the lamp cover back on. It just didn't want to snap back in all the way. I just gently slid it across the surface and it popped back in. Can't tell you why or how but it won't be easy to repeat. Just seems to be blind luck getting it back on.
Thought my issues were over. Fired back up the projector and no image at all. As soon as I powered it back up, I hit the power and 2 arrow buttons at the same time to reset the lamp settings to 0. Still no image after a few minutes.
Power indicator was red and status indicator was blinking red.
Used the remote to power on again and it seemed to be starting properly but no image and then the red lights as described above.
Tried to Power Off with the remote but since the fan had stopped I think the projector had turned itself off. Unplugged the power cord and decided to wait till today.
Turned power on - Power indicator was green. I thought I was in OK shape but again no image came from the projector.
Power indicator was red and status indicator began blinking green.
Waited a few minutes.
Power indicator went red and status indicator wasn't iluminated at all.
No light has come out of the projector since the lamp was replaced.
Confused??? Help appreciated.
