Happy with ours

We have a JVC RS50 & we don't even have a dedicated theater. It is in our family room which we can darken for viewing. We had this professionally calibrated & we are extremely happy with its performance

Latest Gen Bulbs

Latest Gen Bulbs?
I've been replacing with the $100 Amazon bulbs.
I wouldn't mind paying more if I got more life out of the bulbs, but on high power I'm lucky to see close to 2000 hours.

What other options are there?

I inherited a jvc x7 with a new house. It has the solid red lights with flashing orange. I took the ballast out and there is no visible damage and the resistor was good. Put it back in and upgraded the firmware. Bought a new bulb but still no luck, just ordered a new ballast so we'll see if that works. If not, hoping to be able to return it. There was power coming from the power supply to the ballast. I'll report back when the new ballast is in. Does anyone know if anything would cause the blinking orange light?

Replacing lamp ballast in JVC RS50U

Hi,
I leave in Israel and own a JVC RS50U for a few years.
The projector stopped recently working (two red leds and one blinking orange led)
It's probably the lamp ballast (QAL1305-001)
I have read that a few members replaced it (DIY) like JTOLIVE, neilc71
When I tried to open the Fixya site, I have noticed that there are probably additional pictures which cannot be viewed (I tried in Safari and Chrome) Have any member who has gone thru the agony, kept, by chance, a few pictures from the repair process you have gone through? These might be very helpful for me.
Question: I don't know how many hours my lamp was in operation, prior to this event (shame...). Is it important that I'll replace the lamp as part of the ballast replacement?
Also: I see that a few replaced the Tantalum capacitor of the IR control. Can members refer me please to a definition and a good supplier of these capacitors.
Many thanks to whoever is willing to help.
