I just bought a benq w2050 that I need to install. I haven't had the time to do it because I will have to move my mount and power/av connections.

I will have a nice working H9500bd to sell shortly...

Yeah. Fortunately I have the old one as backup (both were mounted and used alternately). It's Sanyo PLV-Z2000.
I guess and home it will survive till I switch to possibly (Faux) 4K some time this year.
My eyes are set on Epson 5040

My 9500BD is back to life.
As it went dark all of a sudden I suspected something really very simple (or a total disaster).
I brought it down and even opened it and then noticed the tab on lamp door was broken and that was making it sit improperly.
Behind that door is a safety switch that gets pushed when door is in place. Due to the tab that switch was not getting pushed causing the PJ to be dark.
For the lack of any appropriate solution I just put a tape on the door to make it sit properly and now all is well.

Interesting to hear the review of the Benq compared to the Acer.

I am replacing the lamp,and had to go to the local hardware store to get a few parts that I feel needed replacing. But now I can't figure out how to seat the bulb properly and there aren't any youtube videos or anything to get me back on track. I feel like an idiot but does anyone have any links or anything to help me get my baby up and running again?

Thanks (and feel free to laugh, I would be if I weren't feeling so stupid).

Question Lamp or ballast problem on H9500bd

hello,
i'm new on this forum and i've a problem with my h9500bd.
Is there a service manual for this projector ? I search, search and search but nothing !

the problem :

it has a new lamp (80 hours) and now i when i switch it on, after a little time (not even the same) it power down, with lamp led red on and power led red on.
the first 80 hours was ok.
and if i replace the lamp with an old on, i've the same problem.

So i think it's the lamp's ballast problem !

if someone has had the same problem ???

Thanks in advance.
Cordialy.
