I should note that I had already replaced my v1 lamp with an official v3 lamp bought from JVC previously.
I no longer have to point my remote control directly at the front of the unit for the signal to be picked up either. I can point the remote control at the screen and the bounced signal is picked up perfectly. The remote control signal reception is significantly improved.
I've only used the unit for a few hours since the board has been replaced, but am optimistic. Thank you for sharing your experience that replacing the capacitor solved your lamp flicker and unit lockups. I'm not sure JVC appreciate yet that the capacitor appears to affect more than just the front remote control signal receptor.
Did JVC pay for the shipping too, or did you have to pay that on your own?
If JVC would pay, I'd definitely consider having mine repaired.
They SHOULD be offering to repair ALL projectors that have the boards assembled incorrectly,
but I won't throw any false hope at it since when my lamp burned out very early on hours,
I tried to communicate with them about it and never even got a response.
Trying to ask AVS sales about it since that is where I bought it from,
they told me I was SOL since the pj was out of warranty.
I don't think that should matter though since the product is actually defective,
and the failure was not due to usage, but due to manufacturing/engineering defects.
