My PT-AE4000 got zapped by lightning. Not a direct hit on the A/C side, but probably an induced voltage on the HDMI line that killed the HDMI inputs. The projector lights up, the menus show up fine, and I think that the VGA input is still working (doesn't sync properly to the one device I tried it with, but you could see it was close). But all three HDMI inputs are dead.
So does anyone want to buy a 4 year old AE4000 with no HDMI? It has a brand new bulb (less than 200 hours usage) that should be worth $300. Comes with original box, remote, manuals, etc. I'm not guaranteeing anything, but if someone wants to make it worth my while, they can pick it up (south of Ottawa, Ontario), or I'll ship it if you pay the shipping.
Otherwise, it's off to the recyclers.
