So tonight my brother and I were ready to fire it up and watch some Game of Thrones, and alas, the projector powered up, fan turned on, but no light was emitted from thens. It wasn't a matter of the connection, as I checked that. I also reset the power and tried resetting it as well. None of the LED indicators lit up, indicating an issue with the lamp or the internal electronics. I just didn't have any light.
I opened the projector up and instpected the lamp, and from what I can see it looks OK.
So, should I assume that it's a matter of a bad bulb, or what else should I do to have it addressed? Without my projector, I have no backup viewing source (other than my computer or tablet).
If it comes to needing a new lamp, where's the best place to buy one? I've seen a few on Amazon for as low as $54, but they get pretty terrible reviews. There is one for $150, but who knows on that, and the OEM one of Epson's website is $300....
