Hi all:

I'm just trying to figure out how many total hours I have on my bulb- I reset the counter without replacing the bulb months back but I'm trying to remember when I started getting the flashing indicator upon start up-- I think it was around 2500 but I don't recall, precisely. Does it vary?

I grabbed (3) different 70-80 LCD TV's and wasn't happy with ANY of them so the panny will be going back into the living room- I was just using it outside.

James

Actual phone call (see pic to left):

 

Tech (responding to laughter): "I'm sorry sir, did I miss something?"

Me: "Yeah, a case of Diet Mountain Dew walking across my living room."

James,

The AR100U keeps track of your current - and the total - hours used.

Here are the instructions for accessing the service menu to figure your total hours so far.

You'll be pleasantly surprised by the brightness and color pop that return to the AR100U with a new lamp. I was.
