You can visibly inspect the lamp to make sure the bulb behind the glass is intact & the round part of the bulb is clear & round. Otherwise if possible return the lamp for exchange. If the same thing happens then the lamp ballast is likely bad. I have many in stock I can diagnose it.
it's not the lamp, it's the ballast. when it's fully discharged, it needs too much power to start. once it has the caps charged (when it's been running and warm), it'll start right away. it sounds as if the capacitors on the ballast are drying up. best to replace the ballast. after you do, make sure the projector is free of dust and dirt. excessive dust will cause premature power and lamp failure due to lack of cool down.
The blinking lamp light indicates that there is a problem with the bulb. Mine did this when I had used the bulb past it's life and the bulb was burned out. Use the owner's manual instructions to remove the bulb and visually inspect it. Mine looked burned out - it was black with clouds on the glass. If this is the case with yours, replace the bulb, or replace the whole unit. (Bulbs can be costly.)
I'm not an expert, just a fellow XR-30X owner. I have two suggestions: 1) unplug the unit for 30 seconds or so and then plug it back in. I guess this "reboots" it or something, but has fixed several weird problems for me. 2) If that doesn't work, a blinking green Lamp light usually means that the bulb is burned out. Visually inspect it to see if it looks bad. (Mine had black marks and clouds on the lens.) Replacing it is fairly easy, but the bulbs are costly.
I generally fix this by re-seating the bulb housing. Take it out and put it back in. Look for cracking at the base of the bulb on the mirrored surface. It could be a barely functioning bulb that isn't busted, but can't initialize. I would take it to a shop that has the same bub type in a housing and make a quick switch.
