Thanks for the reply. I have had the my 720 since 2008 and this is the original bulb, so i guess i will replace it now. I just thought that I would see a more drastic decline.

I am raising this thread from the dead - I know.

I have an Epson 720 and while I've owned it for years, it hasn't always been heavily used. I've purchased two new homes in the time since purchasing it, and it's been in the box during home theatre construction twice.

I've been up and running for about a year at my new place and it's a great projector. Recently though, it's looked dark to me. I bought a Disney WOW home theatre calibration BluRay recently and in some of the tests my projectors min and max settings don't seem to change anything on the screen. I assume it isn't capable of displaying what it is they're trying to configure.

Anyway, I popped in an old THX disk today to try and at least get the contrast/brightness calibrated. My wife and I watched Sicario last night and there were a lot of scenes lacking contrast and everything looks so dim.

My bulb is at 983 hours right now and I'm wondering what else I can do to up the brightness without washing the colours out. Also, when I bought this projector it came with a spare bulb. I know there's only 983 hrs on my current bulb, but would a swap to the new one be a benefit at all? Lets be honest, if I can get a few hundred hours out of the bulb that's likely all I'd need, as the time to replace this projector is fast approaching, don't you think?

Any advice is welcome.
