So, last night my RS45 stopped outputting an image. The lamp light was blinking two blink sets (blink-blink, pause, blink-blink, pause, etc.). If I unplugged it, and plugged it back in, it would work for 5 mintues or so. Now it won't work at all. The lamp has 800 hours on it. Would y'all suspect the lamp? ballast? If not, does anybody know a reputable shop in Seattle/Redmond, WA?

I want to buy one, but have a question

The replacement was a newer version actual JVC bulb (from JVC when I complained about bulb dimming back in 2012), and WOW... The new bulb is so much brighter, and thus better contrast too in low lamp mode than the old bulb was in high lamp mode (which I had to resort to in order to really enjoy the image at all), so this Phillips "bare bulb" replacement probably isn't any better than the original because it was REALLY impressive again, but if it is even the same or close, it is still a great option.

One question, with the bare bulb, is there just the bulb and the "reflective housing" or is there a piece of glass in front of the bulb too? I'm guessing not based off of the pictures, but wanted to ask... The reason that I ask is that when my original bulb blew a couple of weeks ago, it actually cracked the glass and there were really fine bits of glass inside the projector. Thus, if it is the bulb and reflector (without the glass piece) then it won't work for everyone if their glass cracks....
Hello,
my X30 also has a problem. I hadn't used it in a week or so and now when I power it on nothing happens except mode and warning LED red and lamp LED blinking orange. The first time I also heard some sounds coming from it, like scraping, but in hindsight it could have been the noise of an electric arc trying to fire. I believe my lamp has around 1500 hours on it since I bought it in early 2012 (can't check now since there is no image), so not bad at all. I am therefore hoping it is the lamp and not worse.
So, I would like to try this philips bulb form the ebay site. Strangely enough this bulb is not to be found anywhere else on the web, I have tried to find it for a good while also on spanish and german sites. However, on the eBay site the vendor posts:
NOTE: This listing is for a Philips UltraBright bare lamp for your JVC projector. We highly recommend purchasing the Philips UltraBright replacement lamp with housing by clicking the upgrade button below


And it's only a $9 dollars more! But it does not have the flappy metal thing in the air intake. Maybe the philips lamp does not need it, since it is marked as 150W in stead of 220W of the original bulb and has a different build, as some also have noticed here?

Also, there is another vendor 'lamptycoons' on eBay from the US that sells exactly the same... (eBay 301998511149) but slightly more expensive.

But my main question is whether I should purchase it with or without the housing. Any experiences to share?

Thanks a lot to everyone!

BTW, two notable differences between the two ebay vendors:
- lamptycoons vendor gives 150 days warranty, while the discount-merchant gives 180 days
- discount-merchant also offers worldwide shipping with the Global Shipping Program (import taxes included in final price) with cheaper shipping

cheers

I would pursue whether or not the electronics can match up with 150W instead of 220W. Any electrical engineers like to comment?

If the difference in price is only $9, I would get it with the housing. The metal flap is actually very easy to transfer from one housing to another.

Interestingly, the items are also available on Walmart.com, from the same seller.

You need a service shop that can replace the board. Simply ordering a new board and replacing it won't suffice because the eerom (factory) settings need to be copied from the board
and restored on the new board with special service software.


Partnumber for the scaler board is PC0210303U9


To add: both leds flashing:
1x DDM (digital drive module) reset or start error.
2x no communication with DDM.
3x scaler board error.


The power led blinks to indicate the cooldown cycle. It stops blinking after a minute or so.
Quick update. Got the processing board replaced at a repair shop in NL, EUR 1050 repair bill. Works fine now, now I need to adjust all the settings.
