So, my problem is this: blue power ring is on, no picture. Lamp LED keeps blinking. But the bulb is shining bright, color wheel is spinning. I can't turn it off unless I unplug it. When I plug it back in, I sometimes hear a whining noise (not grinding). I'm not sure which is the ballast or capacitor. If the bulb is shining, does that mean that works? Also, something does glow when I plug the power cord in, seems like that's making the whining noise. Dont' know what part that is.
It's only 14 months old, of course, out of warranty.
