The NEC VT47 Projector Specifications say that the lamp is good for 2000 hours and it is good for 3000 hours in eco-mode. Lamp hours are typically a counter and not a count down. If your hours are 2000 then you have already used 2000 hours. If a lamp says it is good for 2000 hours it doesn't mean it will not work once you go over 2000 hours, it could last much longer than that, and like headlights on your car, immediately go out at anytime or just dim over time.

If the bulb has 2000 hours that means it is supposed to last 2000 hours of continual use. It is hard to keep track of the lamp hours though unless the projector has a timer built in. It depends on the manufacturer as to if it is telling you 2000 hours left or used. There should be a way to switch this. But a lamp rated for 2000 hours has 2000 hours of being on is expected lifetime

IMedia 2050 projector does not show picture

This can mean the lamp has come to the end of its service life. They are usually expensive so it may be time for a new machine. A technician should be able to tell you if it is a lamp failure pretty easily.

Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll through all of your devices or for Windows 7 click start right click on computer select properties in the left pane device manager scroll through all of your devices. If you see a yellow question / exclamation mark ? ! or a Red X you will need to update the drivers for this device right click select update driver/reinstall driver software.

Windows XP/Vista/7/8 This might take some time being a freeware driver solution Note: The Driver program will find all of your outdated drivers This will automatically search for and find the correct driver you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you want to restart or make a system restore point. Click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated. also at cnet on the home page you should see a search tab just type in what you are looking for IE: Motherboard name sound drivers.

Lcd blacked out

Sorry, didn't realize it was a laptop. Most likely explanation is a faulty backlight lamp or inverter; can you see anything at all? If there's a very faint image it's probably the lamp.
