have you ever changed a lamp?
How long have you had it?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
No lamp never changed, about 4 years
Expert:  Anthony F. replied 7 years ago.
you are 2 years too late
the lamp will start to put out less light and more heat
the heat will damage polarizer filters in the light engine
do you have any blue or red spots or blobs on the screen?
If you go to a "No Input" screen is the screen solid dark black?
if it is then you are still good
if not you have done damage to the light engine
replacing the lamp will brighten it up
but may not get rid of these spots and even make them look worse because now things wail be bright and any discoloration easily noticeable
Do you see any discolorations?
