+ a billion to that one. Why it didn't come with locking options and something more robust is beyond me.

This is more or less a cross post from a different forum, but after a few days they have not replied or anything, so I am giving this forum a chance.


For various reasons my x30b was never used as I first intended so it's been mainly been collecting dust since I bought it in 2012, I believe I have around 7-800 hours on my first lamp. I finally got myself a used high quality screen (Draper react 3 104") and I mount the screen on the wall, turn the projector on for the first time with new screen, and BAM no picture nothing, just Orange blinking LED lamp and warning + standby on constant red.

I've read around and from what I understand it is most likely either the bulb or the ballast. Funny thing is that by coincident or not but sometimes when I remove lamp and reattach it with power off it starts up like nothing happened.. but never turns on like normal second time without same procedure over and over. Does this point to ballast?

My x30 was doing that frequently but not all the time. It was only with one particular lamp. And the lamp seemed to work in another projector.
If I remember correctly, I didn't have to remove the lamp. Unplug the power cord would work.

Slight chance chance, if not a good chance, it could be the MB.

So if I understand you correctly you believe this problem and also my problem could be related to the motherboard, and not ballast/lamp?

It could be any of the three.

There was also a firmware update in early 2011 that supposedly addressed issues related to not firing up but not sure if yours has that firmware update. I believe the new one was version 28 something. The old one would have started with a 25.

My X30's PSU has developed an annoying high-pitched whine. Like PSU's sometimes do. I'm fairly certain it wasn't there before. The sound depends on the angle my ears have towards the projector, and I have been playing around with the angle of it lately, but where it's at now should be about where it's always been

It's only when displaying 60Hz material, but that's "only" all the streaming I do, which is at least half my time with the projector. Games, too, but the low PS4 Pro hum seems to drown out the whine.

Is it possible to fairly easily replace the PSU? Aside from the annoyance, I am, of course, also afeared that it'll stop working soon. I have no other screen and few financial means with which to just go and buy another projector.

Hey guys, any idea what a fair asking price would be for a used 45 with a brand new bulb (plus the installed old bulb with around 1700 hours) 3d emitter and two pairs of glasses? Getting ready to sell...

Take a gander at the classifieds. At one extreme, you'll see people asking in the $800-900 ballpark and selling them immediately, and at the other extreme there are people asking mid-teens and getting zero action. So, if you actually want to get it sold and not have to keep lowering the price $100/week for a month, I'd probably shoot for asking around a grand plus shipping and expect to negotiate a bit less. Or, ask $850 and sell it in a couple of days.

Cheers,
SC
