Hi Guys,
I live in Kenya on the South Coast of Mombasa.
We have very little in the way of television down here but I do have over 4000 movies on DVD and hard drive.
I bought an Hitachi projector 3 years back and sent it for service and it got lost in the post.
I had a friend in the States who bought me another over just a few months back and I am having troubles with it already and am reluctant to send it for servicing anywhere.
Thought you guys might be able to steer me in the right direction before I have to make other choices.
The projector is an Hitachi CP-WX3030WN
Just in the last week the lamp started cutting out after about 1 hours operation.
I had the temp light on and could not turn it off normally so I turned it off at the mains.
I let it cool down for half an hour and it was ok again for 10 minutes. Same procedure.
I then started getting Air flow messages. Hence cleaned the filter which did not look dirty.
Turned it back on and this time lasted 2 seconds.
I then removed the lamp cover and removed the lamp.
Put it all back in place and turned it on again.
This time it lasted over an hour.
Checked a few places and was given the information that I could increase the fan speed.
Could not find that option.
Any ideas?
Warning! Our normal temperature around here is 30C.
Regards from Kenya

Welcome to Home Theater Shack, Aussiemike. We are happy you chose to join us! :clap:

How many hours do you have on the lamp? First guess would be a bad lamp, but with the difference in time running maybe a bad connection from the ballast to the lamp?

Also, tell us about Mombassa. Most of us know little to nothing about the place.
