I just bought a new lamp for $120, figured it is time since I am at about 7,500 hours on the original lamp (crazy huh). Actually with my HP screen it's still bright enough for 2D and computer use, but it's starting to get a bit DIM. I have a feeling I could have made it to 10,000 hours if I wanted to.

Here is the one I bought, I hope it's the real Philips lamp as the poster claimed, if not I'll return it. Yah I know, no returns, but if they misrepresent a product you can return it. I am pretty sure it's going to be the same exact lamp as the original.

I will have to find a post on how to change it in the housing without replacing the housing, probably can find that in this thread or in the w6000, or I'll figure it out myself.

I found a PDF written up by a guy that shows how to replace the lamp from the housing (buying the lamp only).

Here is a download link:

http://www.mediafire.com/?juh9szob3q6gfnh

The ZIP contains the service manual, a custom guide how to change the LAMP from the housing, and a bunch of general LAMP PDF's. Don't worry, no viruses or anything, just some PDF's mostly.

So I am almost set on picking up one of these to replace my almost 4 year old w1000. How much of an increase in blacks should I expect with the 7000? The 1000 was entry level blacks 4 years ago, and the 7000 seems to be entry lefel blacks now, I just cant find anywhere that compares these though I am assuming that entry level now is much improved from 4 years ago? My room is blacked out except for a white ceiling, throw will be about 15.5 feet sitting about 12 feet from the screen which is a 119" HP. Thanks!

I'd look at W7500 instead if I were you. Considerably better blacks.

I was able to replace the lamp in the housing and now it is as good as new. The lamp I bought from the above link was the REAL Phillips lamp. It is a bit tricky to replace the lamp, but not that bad. Pretty good deal for $120, got 7000+ hours out of $120 lamp :P

Hey guys, I am new to the projector scene with a somewhat recent W7000 purchase. I have been reading this thread to find out all I can about the projector (about 1/2 way through. I apologize if my questions have been answered). One of my big reasons for this projector was for the 3D. It was very disappointing to find out that it does not handle HSBS 3D at 24 FPS. It looks like complete crap. HOU is better but to me still unwatchable. Full 3D looks amazing. I have seen posts where people have been using a Mede8er to over come the 24 FPS as it does frame sequential. These are older posts so I just was looking to see if anyone can comment on the functionality of the Mede8er, does streaming a HSBS or HOU with it actually look decent? Is this the only way to stream the HSBS movies or is there something else out there that will do the job with the W7000?

changed recently my mainboard because the hdmi board not functioning . (no signal at all)

After change mainboard i tried some movies and saw randomly hdmi lose signal again, just for one sec. About one-two times in 2 hours.
I tried with htpc and another player with out success. I dind not try the other hdmi input yet. Also i will try another hdmi cable shorter in length. (this i use now is 7 meters length,and never had a handshake problem before)

But i am afraid maybe mainboard malfunctioning, If send iback for service the w7000, how the technician will detect this problem if this occurs randomly for only a sec. ?

I will post again when i try another cable. Anyone guess what happens.?

Is there a way of changing the remote frequency so that I can adjust a dual setup separately?

Has anyone seen a post or video on how to take the W 7000 apart. I need to replace the fan, and I'm not sure how to proceed. Thanks.

I bought an iTach for my Roomie Remote, and now I can control each projector separately. This is great, I really like the versatility of using the iTach.
