So I've been seeing a lot of RS40 lamp issues lately and I was getting a little worried about my purchase... and then it happened to me. I've owned my projector for less than three months and I've probably only used it for 20-30 hours. I'm not sure what happened or how it happened, but my projector is no longer functioning. All I get when I turn it on is the red warning LED light and the blinking Lamp light. What's worse is that the lens cover is stuck in the open position and the unit won't properly turn off unless I unplug it, which again, won't close the lens door. To me it sounds like the lamp has burnt out, but that just seems absolutely ridiculous after only 30 hours of use. JVC's warranty covers this kind of thing, right? What happens in this case - will they send me a new lamp and I have to replace it, or does this sound like a bigger problem?
