2 & 3. If you are lucky simply opening the pj and removing and then immediately replacing the lamp connection both scrapes clean the contact points and makes sure they are firmly seated and as fully connected as you can make them. Using a proper contact cleaner at this electrical junction may also be considered although be careful as spraying anything in or around a pj can cause particles which can be deposited on optical surfaces forming dust blobs in the image. I would try avoiding this step unless absolutely necessary, say with an old pj that was filthy inside, and I would attempt to apply the compound via a lint free electrical cleaning swab, not a spray can. Proceed at your own risk.
okay - Normal it is - I'll just crank the volume a little more (wife will love that ) - thanks guys!!
