Default Projector Noob, need a little help

I recently acquired a a projector from an auction, state of lamp was unknown so i got it really dirt cheap (30 bucks), i got it home and plugged it in and it started up and showed a screen, all blue with the canon logo and started counting down. it got to about 5 secs and goes black. and the replace bulb light comes on.

now this is where the noob question comes in, if the projectors bulb was out would i even get that startup screen and think something else is wrong besides the bulb and save myself some money on a new bulb? or do all projectors show this startup screen even with a bulb that needs replacing.

the model is a Canon LV-5210u , i got the manual online but never saw anything pertaining to my particular problem.
