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.
Have you tried cleaning the fliters on the back of the unit? It's easy to do. Pull them out, and blow them clean. Also, is the projector well ventilated - mine overheats sometimes and shuts off. Otherwise, sounds like he bulb to me.
The ambient temperature in the room is to high. Try lowering the room temperature. If that doesn't work get a small fan and place it near the projector ro provide extra cooling. The projector is running border line on high temperature and just needs a little extra cooling.
I think it's a lamp driver issue from what I've seen others have gone through. I also read that if you go through the sequence of unplugging, plug back in, wait 20 seconds and try to turn on, multiple times, it will finally kick on and work. I just got mine to turn back on by doing this and waiting through the fan cycling without the light turning on. After the 4th sequence the light flickered. After the 7th sequence it finally turned on and is working. Now I can watch the Super Bowl and will look into replacing soon.
It's not a short, the blub is near the end of it's life ~ the optoma is designed to detect when the blub is about to blow and shuts itself down. Turning the projector upside down or right side up usually only gives you a brief reprieve (some have reported a modest amount of extra time gained) on the blub ~ but in the end it's on it's way out and the projector will shut down again.
