Replacing lamp ballast in JVC RS50U
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.
