I have a year old Optoma GT750 mounted on the ceiling. This projecter still had its original lamp with about 1800 hours on it. Yesterday the lamp exploded. And I do mean explode, glass was everywhere inside the projecter. Smoke and the smell of burning poured out of it. I had to disassemble the whole thing to get all the fragments out.
The cooling fan still works and the projecter is in a room with air conditioning so how could the lamp have heated up to the point of exploding? Did anyone here have this happen to them before with any projecter?
I ordered a new lamp which should arrive next week, I'm praying the thing still works fine.
