I have a mittsubishi hc 3000. It worked great but when I turned it on today it started as usual but the fan sounded funny and made a clicking noise, The status light and the power lites were both green. The fan slowed down and then speeded up again several times. then the power lite turned red and the status lite flashed on and off and then stopped and unit shut down. The bulb never lit. I have less than 1000 hrs on this unit and bulb. Whats the problem? Thanks Gary

my lamp problems usually start with red shades in bottom corners - red, black - same issue I think. check your hours of filter (and clean) - clean inside your housing as helps and check lamp hours - you usually get 1500 to 3000 hours (check your user guide for lamp hours) try and live with problem until you need new bulb as not cheap
Some projectors will not start if you have seriously exceeded the normal life hours of the lamp. If you do not replace your lamp when notified by your projector, the lamp will continue to get so weak that the starting amperage of the ballast will eventually make the lamp explode in the projector. manufacturers don't want you to have to vacuum out bits of glass and mercury from the projector, so they just stop the projector from working until a new lamp is installed.Do you hear a ticking sound of the ballast trying to start the lamp?
Your lamp is rated for 3000 hours. Is the fan working to cool the lamp? When you turn off the projector do you allow the fan to continue to run? If not the lamp is not cooling evenly and the lamp will fail. Th filters should be cleaned regularly and the vents be unobstructed.
If this is a DLP, which I believe it is, your bulb is blown. Look for an indicator light on the front of the tv. After you hear the bulb try to warm up two or three times the indicator light should come on and stay on steady.
I own a 57" Mitsubishi DLP and have replaced the bulb three times now. It was the latest and greatest technology when I bought it, but knowing what I know, I dont think I would buy another DLP.
By the way, get the bulb number then check ebay, by far the best prices.
To solve this problem, simultaneously press the "Input", "Enter", and "Undo" buttons. While holding these buttons, press "On". When the project turns on, you should see "LAMP 100%". This indicates that you have successfully reset the lamp life timer.
