SOURCE: Projector does not turn ON
try removing the lamp, usually quite easy, you need to find the door for the lamp. lamps are customer replaceable, usually. If the lamp is bad you can usually see it damaged in the lamp. kind of like you might be able to see the broken filament in your normale house hold light bulb. good luck.

Hey zrscott388, did you end up replacing the bulb and did that fix it? My Z1 is doing the same thing. I hate to spend 300-400 on a bulb and it doesn't work. The Z5 is going for 1100 new on Ebay. I rather do that than waste money. Please let me know.

Thats the projector telling you that you need to replace the lamp. Lamps usually lasts for about 2000 hours so if you had it for a while you may need to replace it.
www.froogle.com and enter your make and model or go to www.projectorcentral.com and find a few retailers in the US that sells lamps.

Look on p.40 of the manual. It discusses this problem with the possibility that the lamp is not properly fitted into the unit. If adjusting the placement of the lamp doesn't work (I would actually take the lamp out and put it back in,) it could have an issue with a dirty air filter or overheating due to debris caught in the air cooling fan.
Here's the manual online:
