I just returned from a two week overseas trip yesterday. My house was
basically locked down, with heating system set at 60 degrees and all the
water/gas and non-essential electrics turned off at the fuse box.
Unfortunately, I may have overlooked one item....
A few minutes ago, I went to my basement and discovered that my AE2000
was still on. It wasn't getting any signals because the HD-DVR and A/V
receiver were not turned on. The projector was basically just projecting
a black image on the screen, with the small blue input guide blinking....This means my AE2000 was on continuosly for 350+ hours!
What kind of damage, if any, has I done to my AE2000? It is currently
showing a little over 1000 hours on this lamp. (a couple of weeks ago, I
believe it was somewhere between 600 to 700 hours)
The basement was only 53 degrees... not sure if the cold is good or bad....
The only good thing, AFAIK
, is that the two dust bunnies on the lower half of the
screen have disappeared.... (the fan running 350 hours probably kicked them out)
I have just turned on my HD DVR and AV receiver.... the picture look alright.... but....
