My RS2's original lamp is well over 2,000 hours. It has been flickering for a few months now. It stops doing this on high lamp mode but the projector noise is way too annoying.

I called Mike at AVScience but they only have the latest model 5012. It costs $450 shipped which is around half of the projectors current value.

Is there another source for JVC lamps that is reliable? I'm trying to get the original JVC lamp. I think it's model # is 5009-S? I'm not looking for a knockoff but a legit JVC.

Thanks,
Tom

I've bought two genuine JVC lamps from Focused Technology. since November 2011. They still charge the same price: $329.

I still use my FPJ1 as I have since I installed it in April of 2009: 5-6 hours per night with a new lamp every 18-20 months (whether it needs it or not ).

The picture is still totally satisfying to me. I wouldn't upgrade just to get 3D, but might consider an upgrade if 4K ever gains sufficient traction.

I can't vouch for reliability.. but there are some sellers selling used OEM bulbs on ebay with say 500 hours for like 30 bucks.. might be worth it.. No real guarantee on it i guess.. but its cheap

Thanks guys.

Is this lamp a knockoff? It says in the title that it is an original for what that's worth.
