If anyone ever decides to part out their dead 4900, I'd be interested in a lens assy.
Been checking eBay, but they're so old now it's hard to find anything.
HC5000, 6000, 6500 would also be likely donors.

Have enjoyed the HC4900 for several years - lately the picture seems washed out and very dark. Tried another bulb and it didn't make a huge difference. Every now and then the image is bright and crisp like when it was new. Most of the time dissapointing and dark.

I've tried:
1 - new bulb
2 - direct connection from PS3 to projector with new hdmi cable.

I'm going to try:
1 - resetting to factory defaults.
2 - anything else you all recommend.

What would you do to revitalize an HC4900?

Hi all I seem to be having the same problem many have had with a replacement lamp for the HC4900. The aftermarket one I got on Amazon had the WRONG connector that is supposed to mate with the projector. it looks similar but its slightly different. the slot on top is the original. Does ANYBODY know which after market lamp will actually fit into the unit?? Many Thanks in advance!! Bohanna
