I've heard of burning odors on some new version of this PJ. However, mine is 3 years old and I have never noticed a problem in the past. The odor is strong at the exhaust port. After about an hour of use, the theater is filled with a fairly pungent, bitter smell. One friend described it as a skunk beer odor (odd, I know, but it is a good description). It is more of a bitter, pungent odor more than a burning odor. Could this be somehow related to the bulb? Burning electronics/plastic? Not sure how to remedy.

Any suggestions or guesses welcome. Thanks!
