Lamp replaced, sequence from Manual (p.49) for 2010+ hrs fails
Apparently, the above posted steps do work, but they are finicky. The manual suggests that you do the aforementioned steps with the remote - I had tried with the remote and when that did not work I tried directly on the controls on the unit itself. Neither had worked - after multiple attempts, hence the posting above. The solution was that the various steps need to be done speedily - when I previously did it I apparently did not press the sequence rapidly enough. Nothing in the manual suggests that this is the case (and in fact I thought I had previously followed the steps in rapid succession on at least one of the many times I had tried, but apparently not quickly enough). I never could get this rapid succession of steps to work with the remote (as the manual said I needed to), but I did ultimately get the rapid succession of steps to work when done directly to the unit itself. The first three steps need to be completed within approximately 1-1.5 seconds, the final push of the volume+ button did require 2 or more seconds before the process was recognized (and complete). Never did have a single FixYa party try to address my issue - perhaps you only really get responses from them when you pay for their monthly service.
