I don't believe lamp hours are available, only total tv hours of operation. If it's original lamp, then they should be equal. The code that worked for my 65735 was pressing on the remote MENU, 2,...

To answer my own question, I bought and received a 52mm generic lens cap on EBay. Works like a champ, fitting the case opening just fine. The actual lens is smaller, but this cover should do a good...

I did a quick setup and found the offset to be about 5.5%, so Projector Central is probably correct. My pj was 10' from the wall, fwiw. I will definitely mount my pj first, at a height that should...

These are all just guesses on my part.

1. Enough to move all of the hot air coming out of the pj, and then some. It may be hard to figure how much that is though.
2.Hopefully, the hush box fans...

Nah, I didn't take it that way at all. Just made me look closer at that manual. I am surprised that this question hasn't been asked before. I thought I was interpreting the manual correctly, so...

Hard to tell if these are slim all the way, but it's what I could find. But you may have problems running them as a 'bunch', or even getting the connectors themselves around the corners. You might...

The question is what is the acceptable distance(s) required for the pj to the screen for the screen size you want? Do those distance place the pj in the path of the fans blades? If the distance...

Do you have the owner's manual? I am looking at page 15, which has a pic and table relating to pic dimensions and position. My calculations were based on my assumption that the pj is sitting on the...

No, unfortunately not. You'd have to tilt the pj up which will mess up the image. Then you'd have to use electronic keystone adjustment to correct it, and most folks agree to only do that as a very...

Something like this is what you need. I like the regulated one, cuz I am not sure how the cheaper ones would drive a fan (usually the level of the voltage is related to how much current it's...

Must be a different model than his, I'm guessing. For example, mine has a different scale for setting the collar on the bit. I've never looked at the markings on it though, but I believe it was...

Keep in mind that the pj needs circulation all around, above it being crucial as well. Ceiling-hugging mounts are nice, but be kind to your pj. :)

It's just speculation that heat is the root cause of this problem. My tv developed the same problem, but it didn't go ballistic after the first stuck mirror. It got up to about 16 bright and 5 dark...

Hard to tell without a closeup of the left side corners, but it does look like the pj is a tiny bit too far to the right.

So what's missing from the cheap option (third listing)? Just the custom/universal plate that mounts to the actual pj?
