Hey everyone. Been reading this thread forever! Awesome and helpful tips, I thank you. I've had my new 5040 for about a year to date, and I have a tick under 1,000 hours on the first lamp. I notice sporadically now when I power on the PJ that the fan kicks on (higher and louder than normal, like im in high settings), and the lamp itself doesn't turn on at least for 45sec - 1min (this is when the Epson logo finally shows). Am I victim to the dreaded power supply issue? It happens sporadically, like I said. Sometimes it just powers up like normal, but ever so often (and more often than I'd like), this happens. Appreciate the insight!
