Thinking about getting it serviced.

I have experienced this problem recently as well.
I recently purchased an Epson 2040 projector and have been having some issues with it. A week ago I was using it and the bulb randomly turned off, followed by a few seconds delay and the projector stopping, showing a flashing blue light on the power LED, and a flashing orange light on the lamp LED (same symptoms you mentioned above). According to the website, this means the bulb needs to be replaced, and do not use the projector unless the lamp/bulb is replaced. I called Epson and they confirmed this, mailing me a new bulb for free as my bulb is still under warranty (bought the projector on July 11, and my bulk life was 25 hours).
So, I went to install it last night, watched a few TV shows and set up my Steam link with the projector....and the exact same issue happened with the new bulb. I plan to call them when they open to see if its the projector itself, but am pretty confused what could be causing it. I am running the projector from a night table with ample room around it, it does run a bit hot but I have read all projectors do. The temperature light has not been on at all. I am currently watching shows via my laptop with an HDMI cord to my sound system receiver, with another one from the receiver to the projector. With the steam link, its directly plugged into the projector, with no other connections.
Anyways, I will update once I call them. If anyone else has experienced this, let me know if you found a solution!
