-How old is the unit?

Have you pulled the lamp to check it?
No I havn't. I will do that tonight. This email went to my spam box and i almost missed it. Am I just looking for a blown bulb, like my last one 3 months ago or is there something else to be on the lookout for? Thanks.
Well if it is blown that will answer our questions quickly, but it may just be deformed or might have some white spots at the base...let me know what you see.
Ok put it in and listen/look through the vents in the back while you turn it on, what do you see/hear?
The red light blinking, that is the lamp light?
