Default Lamp Fail

i have an optoma hd80 and love it....till fairly recently its began randomly turning off and having the lamp fail light go on. and it will sit like that for several hours if left alone ( i don't know how long i got bored after like 3 hours) but if i unplug it re plug it and turn it on it works again. thats how it started then it would randomly do that then stay on for a bit and fail again. and after a couple times unplugging and replugging and turning it back on it works fine for...well tell im done using it. and its just gotten progressively worse so half the time it works fine the other half of the time its saying lamp fail.

its fairly knew, the lamps not dead or at least the lamp dying message majigger aint going off, not over heating just failing.

my conclusion.

i = boned x 2.

anyone familiar with this dookie? or perhaps someone would mail me a cookie.
p.s. I hate my signature.

I'm just curious. By that you mean the lamp or the light engine?

itd be nice if i knew. all i know is it shuts off mid use and the handy lamp light goes on so i looked up in the manual and it means lamp fail.

doesnt offer a solution or what i should do or what that means to me. just
oh that means the lamp failed.


i checked the lamp hours and its at like 1279 or so and its rated for 2000 hours in full power.

and when i unplug it replug it and turn it back on it runs like normal till it fails again.
p.s. I hate my signature.

yep sounds like your bulb failed to me, just because it is rated for that many hours does not mean it will get that many and that amount is getting close enough i would say its the bulb
