I am having a lamp issue with my HC6000 similar to the ones in this thread. I have had this pj since 2008 and have sent it back to Mits twice. The issue is most of the time (there is no rhyme or reason) the lamp will not fire up fully when I start it. I usually have to turn the pj off and on several times to get it fired up. The first time I sent it to Mits service they was to change out a circuit board, but the problem came back again about 6 months later. The second time they changed the lamp, but the problem started up again a few months later. Instead of sending it back to Mits I just setup a routine to get it started.
Now that I have bought a new Mits lamp (same as the box that is shown in this thread) the startup is different. Now when the pj will not start up I turn it off and (after a minute or two) turn it back on. When I turn it back on it tries to start, but turns itself off instead after trying. No light at all comes out at all when I try the second time. What I do then is to unplug the pj and wait a few minutes and then try again. Most of the time it will start up full then.
Any ideas? I was hoping to keep this pj until the end of the year.
