Something went terribly wrong - never any fun to start a thread with those words.
I've been having continuous problems with the my 8110 since I converted to digital input through a Moome HDMI card. First, the projector worked fine initially. Then, I started getting a drop of the green tube - which is an issue tha others have seen. Suggestions were given in this forum that it might be a green pot corrosion issue - checked, and that wasn't the problem. So, I got a hold of Moome and he graciously agreed to look at the card.
Here's where the terribly wrong part comes in. So, instead of being a good corporate citizen, I knew the Ohio State/Michigan game was only 2 weeks away, and I had to send the card to Hong Kong to be tested. So, I figured I stretch it out a bit. This past weekend, I was able to jiggle the card to get the projector working on all 3 tubes. Watched the game - Go Bucks. Then, decided to play a movie for the kids. Dropped the green tube, jiggled the card - then I heard a "fwip" type of sound (my apologies to Mad Magazine for stealing a Fone Bone sound). Then the tubes shut off, all three of them.
The power module revs up, but there is no light in the tubes. I dare to dream that there's a fuse link somewhere that blew in the projector - but I'm certain that something is terribly wrong. Before I begin the long, arduous process of taking the projector down from the ceiling, packing it up and waiting several weeks for transport and repair - anyone have any ideas?
Many thanks as always.
