Okay, so my projector screen said "Replace Lamp" which I did..but it is still saying "Replace Lamp" and then after about 10 minutes, the green light turns orange and starts flashing....after a few minutes it will let me turn it back on and to solid green after it flashes green after I push the button.
Also, when I first replaced the lamp I couldnt get the projector to turn on at all at first..I dont know if it is related? Anyway, any help you could offer woul dbe fantastic! Thanks.

was this bought new or second hand?
There is a "Lamp Time" setting that can be accessd using your remote control, check this setting.
Look on page 40 and after that of your manual about ambient temperature bulb failure.
By powering off or hittign the reset button the bulb should stay on IF the projector is gettign a signal from a device to show an image. If the projector is not hooked up to a device, laptop, TV, etc. the bulb may turn off to save hours of operation.
the lamp is good for about 2000 hours. after this, the lamp may still work, but not as well or for very much longer. after you replace the lamp, you have to reset the lamp timer (in the menu settings).
lamp hours can only be displayed by connecting two test points in side the projector. in normal operation, a message will be displayed on the screen when the lamp hours = 1090. when the lamp reaches 1100 hours, the projector will shut itself off. when you do replace the lamp, be sure to reset the lamp time in the setup menu (this is covered in your manual).
