Yeah, I am worried about the lamp you got...I have had tons of problems with the company you bought your lamp from and I have seen so many customers get junk lamps from them.
That company sells generic lamps, they are not OEM. They say they are equivalent to OEM but I can guarantee you they are not.
They normally sell your lamp for around $35, is that right? I can tell you my cost at my shop is around $50-55 for just the bulb when I buy in bulk...so i can guarantee you they are not selling you a good lamp.
A good lamp will normally cost $100 or more.
I would recommend ordering one from someone like www.dlplampsource.com, they sell a good quality product and I have never had a problem with their lamps.
Www.shopjimmy.com also sells a lamp that is not OEM but has had a good reputation as of late...if you do not want to spend the money on a OEM from someone like dlplampsource.com then I would recommend shopjimmy.com You may get one for around $50-60...its not going to last as long as an OEM but it will be 100 times better than the lamp that electrified discounters sold you.
I am sorry to bring bad news Brenda, I know you were hoping for an easier fix here, unfortunately I have seen people have problems with lamps one too many times from that company...sometimes they last a week, sometimes a month but rarely more than 3 months.
