I have a Mitsubishi HC4000 that I bought about 16 months ago. It currently has 2200 hours on it, but just yesterday it started periodically producing this subtle strobing or flickering effect, and not 100% of the screen, but maybe 80% of it.
It is really noticeable if I am looking a solid color background, particularly white, as in a blank Word doc.
My understanding was the lamp is supposed to be good for 4000 hours or so, but I also understand that this varies.
I use it practically everyday as both my entertainment hub and my work monitor (though I have a separate proper monitor, so it mostly does entertainment duties).
So I am wondering if this is an indication of it needing lamp replacement or if this might be something more serious.
This is my first projector, so I have really no idea about these things.
Thanks for any help any of you may provide.
