How did you find this projector new a year ago, it came out in 2009? I've had mine for over 4 years.
I feel like such an idiot. It was the lens after all. It wasn't dust though it was some kind of film on it maybe from using the fireplace else I don't know what or how it got there. I had to take it off the ceiling mount to see it. I used a microfiber cloth to clean it and the glow was gone. Thanks to all for your help.
Right now, I'm looking to get either a gently used Mitsubishi Hc3800 with 700 hours of viewing time at around $350
a new BenQ W770ST at $500.
I know that the Hc3800 was a much higher end product at the time of its release, but considering all the advances in technologies in the past 5 years, which would be a better deal? Also, lack of 3D is not an issue for me at all. I'll be viewing art house movies on Blu Ray.
Thanks in advance for the replies!
At one point there was a promo which provided a new bulb for free. You might ask if the previous owner took advantage of it, which might explain the low hours.
Make sure the firmware in the 3800 is up to date. The initial release had a tendency to shut down the projector when it received a signal it didn't like.
I have no experience with the BenQ, so can't comment there.

Where can I buy a factory replacement bulb, or bulb with housing, that is a reputable source and offers a fair price?
They also have good info on how to spot fake lamps http://www.projectorlampexperts.com/...tYourself.aspx
