My x500r just starting having an issue yesterday in which after being turned on for about 2 mins it shuts down and i'm left with a solid warning light, flashing lamp, and solid standby. When I purchased from Eastporters I was sent a spare lamp.

The current lamp only has about 200 hours on it but by swapping it the problem has stopped. Eastporters suggested contact JVC support as the original bulb may be under warranty. Has anybody had a similar experience and does anybody have the JVC number handy?

thanks!

Did you try putting the original lamp back? Maybe it wasn't properly seated, and it's not defective. If it's still not working I would contact JVC (or your dealer) as it should be under warranty if it's under a year/1000 hours use.

I just ordered a benq 1070 refurb to mount directly above my 4910. Now i can put lots of hours on the benq for surfing the net and watching tv and keep the jvc for serious viewing. That way when i upgrade the jvc there will be lots less hours on it. I will also use the benq for outdoor movies, It almost seems like a no brainer for $642.

Never stop upgrading!

It's not a bad idea to have 2 projectors with different strengths. Plus, if you are a projector addict ( and what AVS forum member isn't ? ), you will always have a backup projector if one breaks and needs repair. Thank goodness I have 2 projectors myself now! I can sleep more soundly........

Agree! I just added a refurb Mitsubishi HC7900DW to complement my JVC RS4910, for gaming and casual use. I see now how it also has these nice side effects. Plus it makes it the thought of a sell/upgrade process less disruptive... Uh oh.

I have been considering this as well, specially for surfing on my PC and gaming.

Dual projectors are a must for me. No way I would be satisfied with just one. There is always some type of benefit that you can't get with one projector. Also, the cost of a second DLP projector makes it a no brainer

I had what sounds to be the same issue, sent to JVC and it was the bulb.

It seems like you guys are leaning toward a wholesale recommendation, but please step back and get a grip. I'd have to think for the VAST majority of projector owners, owning multiple projectors simply isn't feasible (and I'm not talking about the additional expense, but rather the hassle, logistics, etc). Or sane.

Well then. Anyone interested in an Epson 8500ub with 350 hours on it when my Jvc comes in?
