Well all. I ran every option possible and to date have struck out on all of them. As mentioned I have an Anthem LTX500 projector which is a re-badged JVC RS20U, I can tell you there is no Lemon Law at work at JVC Japan or Anthem. Get a bad unit.......your tough luck. I contacted my Anthem dealer, & Northwest sales representative for the USA who contacted Anthem's Product manager, Customer Service Supervisor and also forwarded my issue on to the CEO & founder of the company. The back pedaling began immediately with the first email response from the Product Manager. He said they did not purchase the units from JVC America but JVC Japan. He said he forwarded my email to JVCJapan describing the issue but did not know what their response might be. JVC Japan's response........yes they have these failures but they are at an acceptable level (number). Since my unit is out of warranty they will not help. ( from what I have been reading this magenta strip seems to show up around 1,000 to 1,200 hours so try and get that many hours on your projector before it goes out of warranty).
I went back to Anthem to see if they would replace the projector. After all it has their name on it. The Anthem product manager gave me the excuse it was out of production and did not offer a comparable model as a replacement. I have made multiple purchases through my local Anthem/Paradigm dealer. This latest purchase that included the LTX500 projector was in the neighborhood of $45,000. I say that only to emphasize that Anthem/Paradigm sticks to the hardcore "Party Line" no matter how much you spend on their products. In the Product Manager's last email he said if there was anything he could do he would but was out of options. I asked him to forward the complete email thread to the CEO. The Product manager said he would but warned me against any false hope. That was the last contact, June 28th. Since then silence.
