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.

Just had the same problem. Based on other suggestions on here I tried resetting the overheat switch, and IT WORKED!
So, you have to pull the 6 screws (one of them is shorter than the rest, remember where it goes) that hold the top on the projector. 3 are on the back, 3 on the bottom - look for the arrows next to the screws.
Put the projector on it's feet, and pull off the top. The button wires will still be connected, so just hold onto the top and find the black circle/shaft above where the lamp is. The shaft has white paint on the top/tip of it. Push it down with a light amount of force. You should hear/feel it click.
Put top back on, put screws in, and you should be good to go.
Don't forget to reset the lamp replacement counter in the menus.

Also, to see lamp hours used, press and hold the UP ARROW (on the unit, not on the remote) for 30 seconds while projector is on.
