I am sorry for quoting all the previous messages again but I would like to keep these posts in quotes so the message doesn't get lost.

Its annoying especially when you have people over and this starts.

Anyone else had this issue?

I can't quite replicate it 100% of the time either.
In most cases, the projector powers on, flashes the DILA logo and all is well.
But in a few cases now, I have had the same exact problem as the two comments above. The DILA logo doesn't pop up and there's no image. It appears that there is a blank image with the odd very faint white horizontal line (like there is no sync), but nothing works... not the the menu, not the lens shift, nada.
I found that I can press "Standby" button on the remote twice and the projector will shut down. But powering it up again (after the fan had powered down) still yields the same problem. Only way, as others mentioned, was to yank the plug out, wait a couple of minutes and try again.
I was concerned that the problems might have been due to the smaller confined space on my shelf (the same one that worked on the DLA-HD250/HD1 among others), so I took the projector off the shelf and set it up on the dining table with ample of space on all the sides.
I plugged everything in and powered up and the DILA image flashed and the unit operated as per normal.
I set it up to play some 3D titles from the PS3 and also some 1080p24 from a media player which is a mix of the stuff I normally play over the course of an evening.
I put the machine on for about 2-3 hours, non stop and there was not a single glitch.
I then powered off the projector for an hour or so while I was working on some conference calls.
Once the call was done, I went off to power the projector on again.
This time, the DILA logo didn't flash on, and the then projector shut itself off, then the warning lights starting flashing.
The red standby button was flashing (cooling down process) and the lamp/warning logos were blinking simultaneously in a series of 3. The manual states the following:
Abnormal Electrical circuit
- Check that nothing is blocking the air inlets
- Check that the external temperature is normal
Leave the unit until it cools down
After that, turn on the power again
If the warning indication is displayed again, please wait for the cooling fan stopped, then pull out the power plug from the power outlet. Then call your authorized dealer for repair.
OK, time to call the distributor.
