Hi, I hope someone has seen this one before,
The other night my PT-AX100E crossed the 1800h mark and told me it was time to replace the lamp. Fair enough, but today I noticed something I've never seen before, the top of the screen has a brown streak to it that is visible when the PT-AX100E is projecting bright light. Could this be due to the lamp getting old and failing? I really don't want to buy a new lamp if the projector itself is dying since I have no warranty left.
A friend of mine, with another brand, had a similar issue (but blue, and to the right of the screen) that he thought was due to the lamp getting old, but after he bought and installed a new lamp things just kept on getting worse and to the point that it's almost unwatchable now. I really want to avoid that, a new PT-AX100E lamp is almost half the price of what a brand new PT-AX200E would cost me here! :/
