Generally, a DLP bulb lasts about 8,000 hours (if a TV is on 10 hours a day, every day, the bulb will last about two years). A bulb can last longer if it's used less frequently. Typically, a bulb in a DLP TV for household use should last at least three to four years before it starts to flicker and needs to be replaced.

Stop lights not working, how do i fix now?

Could be wiring or bulbs, but you probably already checked bulbs. I would check the brake light switch (mounted behind the brake pedal). Maybe a $15 part for that car, way less than a ticket. I have only ever replaced one (lots of vehicles, lots of miles), but they don't last forever. Generally very easy, except for the part where you have to lay in the floor under the dash and twist like a pretzel.

My projector's power light is red, but when I click power it won't turn to green (on)

The likeliest problem here may be a burned out or failed projector bulb. Most projectors will fail to power up at all when if the bulb is out. The HD20 user manual does not specify a red light as an error indication option however, generally amber.
User manual .pdf is located here (takes a bit to download for it's size), Projector Status Indicator instructions are located on page 40.
Here on the product page itself, an email to Optima support may be warranted given the red instead of amber error light.
If you had any messages recently indicating your bulb life was nearing it's end, again, this would be my first guess. Certain models of projectors do have a tendency of blowing through bulbs even before any warning message comes up. I had an experience with a certain brand/model that for the last 3 replacements has given only about 1/4 of the stated bulb life, so unfortunately it does happen.

Dash shows bulb replacement necessary, however no bulb appears burned out. Can the dash light be removed?

Generally on high end cars, if the dash says there is something wrong,normally it is. I would not advise trying to remove the bulb from the car. This light will come on even if one small bulb on the outside of the car is out. Make sure you look at all the bulbs, there is generally one bulb out if that light is coming on.

My mitsubishi hd1080 screen is blue with lines and it keeps flashing...i was told i may need to change some sort of bulb in it?

Yup, they generally only last 2-3k hours.

Google up your model and buy the best warranteed one you can find. Buy a "caged assembly" and not just a bare bulb.

Then unplug your tv and get a screwdriver. Follow your model's instructions and just snug down the electrical screws. Do not overtighten them.

Then consult your manual on how to reset the lamp timer so it knows you put a new bulb in and fires up from the first try.

Treat yourself because you've just saved yourself a trip from a repairman!!

How do you replace the license plate light on a 2007 hyundai sonata

I can't see what you have but lets check a couple of things. If there is any screws visable on the outside of the lens then remove them. Once the cover is off then you should be able to see the bulb. Take the bulb between your thimb and four finger and push in gently and turn to the right and pull out. You would know the rest from there. If no screws outside then lets look in the trunk. You may have to remove some covering in the general area to see the bulb. Follow above directions. If nothing is there then the last place is under the bumper. Have a look and go from there. Let me know I we fixed it. The Raz
