Hi, everyone, I'm one of the original woot purchasers and got a 7150. I got a mack warranty when I purchased my unit, and called them, as I am finally noticing a dimming of the picture, although it isn't too bad.
I sent in all of the info and they emailed me back asking me to ship the projector in to them and they would replace the bulb.
That is great, but I didn't really want to ship the whole unit in when I'm just replacing the bulb. The lady I spoke with at Mack was nice and she said they wanted the unit shipped in because they bought the bulb only, not in the cage. She said most people didn't want to try to put the bare bulb into the unit so they did it there. She told me if I wanted to get just the bulb they would ship it out to me.
My question is, how hard is it to remove the old bulb and put the new bulb in the cage, then replace the whole thing? It looks like others here have already done it.
Thanks for any help!
