    it turns on ok but the replace lamp light is lit but the lamp still works . it boots up till it counts down to 22 and then turns off again . I dont want to buy a new bulb until i know the problem.So does projectors not boot up without the bulb being in a 100% serviceable state ?

    any advice is welcomed , thanks

    It sounds like, because the bulb needs replacing it is shutting down to protect itself from any damage.

    What stripe said.

    Some lamps explode when they reach the end of their life, so the projector is protecting itself from that. A few pjs seem to have similar ways of shutting off when the lamp reaches the end of it's life so that you have time to buy a new one before the lamp finaly goes.

    but now it only flicks on for a second and goes off and both lamp replace and temp lamps flash when its cold., i guess i have to look for a new lamp , but the decision now is it worth it as i bought it a junk sale.

    thanks
