Qumi Q5 melted plastic lens
Has anyone who owns a Qumi Q5 had any problems with the outer lens melting? Am i the only one? It happened after cleaning it with distilled water while the projector was on. At first, it looked like the lens was loosing its coating in an oval shape and was in its upper portion. I then i tried to remove the rest of the coating using alcohol, i realized that the lens was being etched or melting on the inside where the light was going through it. It just does not make sens that this would happen with regular normal use. Since it was a factory refurbished unit the warranty was only for 90 days and is now expired. Vivitek wants over $200 to replace the lens (that i have already taken out). It really does not make sense to throw away such perfectly good little projector because of that plastic lens, and buying a new one or sending it in for repairs is not in the budget. I started a new thread but there was no response.
Anyone knows who their lens supplier is?
