When I purchased my projector (Epson HC Cinema 400) from PP in June 2007, I also purchased a 3 year warrantech/repairmaster warranty.
I now have about 1790 hours on my bulb, and each time I turn the projector on, I get a message on my projector telling me to replace the bulb. The bulb is still functioning, but does seem to be dimmer than it once was. Can I get a replacement bulb, or does the bulb have to actually blow before I can contact the company? Also, if the bulb reaches the expected bulb life (1700 ish hours) will/should the company still replace it, or is it only a safety measure against bulbs that blow early?
AVS searches have pulled up a bunch of threads, but I can't find the specific information I'm looking for. I would look up the documentation from my little pamphlet, but I do not have access to it currently (college student who won't be going back home for a few weeks), and as I recall, it wasn't too informational.
I appreciate anyone who can offer their past experience with warrentech/repairmaster, or anyone who has some insight into the warranty business. Thanks in advance.
