What your experiencing isn't all that Common, and if that is a new PJ then you should get a New one in exchange. Or opt for a 8350 instead.

Personally, I don't much care for VA Refurbs. They have a bad track record for shipping out returns labeled as Refurbs, which are not fixed. Projector People seems far more trustworthy and considerate when any return is needed.
Right it is a refurb. It looked new and showed 10 hour operational lifetime, so it seemed like a steal at first. It was advertised as manufacture refurbished, having the full 2 year manufacturer warranty I understood this to mean that my 8345 was covered by the same rapid replacement policy that new projectors have. I hope I wasn't mistaken.

I will contact Epson.

Strange background distortion after replacing lamp

I just replaced my 8350's lamp after 1575 hours. I replaced it with a lamp with an Osram bulb from Amazon (product id B00M4MSW5M) and immediately noticed an odd distortion on the image. It almost looks like a uniformly dirty LCD, but with a horizontal hairline through the picture almost perfectly in the center of the image. Text is clear and sharp and bright, but everything else looks like it's being projected on a concrete wall. (I project onto a projector screen.)

What could cause this? Is it possible that the lamp is contributing this effect? I inspected the lamp to make sure there was no plastic film on the glass; it was perfectly clean looking. Could the old bulb's burnout have spewed matter perfectly across the LCD panel? What about the horizontal line?

I am currently looking for a second replacement lamp to compare against, and hopefully determine if it's the lamp or the LCD or something else.
