Just wondering if anyone has had the same experience. About 6 months ago i got a flashing message to change my bulb because the life time was expiring. The bulb was working fine at that point, so i figured why replace it. I reset the timer and have not had a problem for the last 6 months My timer after being reset is about 1/2-3/4 of the way again and i am still not having any issues with the bulb. Is it normal for the bulbs to last well beyond the life timer? I have it running on the standard setting, not the low level also.
