Question about Optoma HD72 Multimedia Projector
I had this exact same problem. I have changed bulbs gotten 1000 or so hours from new bulb, changed the lamp driver and gotten about 600 more hours from new lamp driver. New lamp cost me $350, lamp driver cost me $120. Then I read on a page to try and flip it right side up, because I had it ceiling mounted upside down. I flipped it right side up and it works perfectly and has been working perfectly for 2 months now. I know it sounds stupid, but it actually worked for me, and it costs you nothing to try it. For some reason, gravity effects this unit. Good luck.

I had the same problem with very few hours on the lamp. Sent it back to the factory and they said the fan was overheating causing the bulb to shut down. They replaced the fan and the bulb for free under warranty. I noticed before I sent it the projector was putting out an incredible amount of heat. MUCH better after fan replacement.
