I just replaced my bulb and had a heck of a time resetting the timer. I thought I had done everything right but no joy. Finally, I turned on the projector and nothing else....just had the blue screen and then did the reset left arrow right arrow enter....and it worked.
Alan, thank you for your efforts in supporting this initiative. Kraig, as has been said already, you are the man!!!!!! This forum continues to offer value waaaay beyond expectations. This site should be designated a world heritage site.
Kraig, as noted above I have just replaced my bulb so I think I will buy a couple of spares to have on hand. I am NOT known for my adeptness in getting complex mechanical things to work well. Now that I have the housing for the old bulb out of the projector how difficult is it to figure out how to open it up? I know its a subjective answer but for some of us this stuff is not intuitive..........and there are no instructions. Also the grease that you referred to....if the supplier of the bulb doesn't have it, does it seem like it would be a common substance that would be carried by, say, a big box Home Depot ?????
Finally if my narrative is not too annoying, is there any hint of going up in power to say a six hundred watt bulb???? or is that too risky?
