    I have had the projector for a few years on low power in continuous use.
    It went tonight.
    When I switch on it works for a minute then shuts down with a red flashing light. The bulb life was over 4000 so I was expecting to have to have a new bulb soon,
    BUT
    I have recived no low lamp life warning.
    Before I depart with £296.10 to Panasonic or £230 at TSI Europe.
    Can I be sure it is the bulb.
    Do I have the PSU problem, mentioned here in the forums?
    Someone mentioned not maintaining arc as similar to my problem
    and hence a new bulb beingh the answer.
    A new projector is £400 and a XGA one £1000, I make you wonder.

    No one is speaking to me:-(
    The bulb from TSI Europe arrived swifly and works. :)
    So do not be put off by the manual not exactly matching the symptons of a new bulb.
    Try it.
