So I have spoken with customer service (Epson Canada) about the mysterious "noise". They have told me to try and turn on the pj (on a different power outlet) without any cables connected to it and see if the "noise" is still there. They said that this could be "power" or "bad cable" related. Well, I have tried that the the noise is still there.
So, they will replace the unit, no problem, if I wish so.
My only problem is the fact that I don't know if they will send me a new unit back or a refurb. I have heard stories that they will send you a unit back with 1200h on the bulb, when you have sent them a unit with 150h (or vice versa).
Anyhow, here is the link to a movie that I have made trying to capture the "noise". The picture is out of focus because I wanted to capture the sound - so the camera is right there next to the fan outlet. If you crank up your computer speakers, you will be able to hear:
1. the fan
2 the pitch-y sound which changes pitch (sometimes higher, sometimes lower)http://picasaweb.google.com/10652155...7hr9mgnpOk3QE#
* pay attention to 23 seconds and up
You guys tell me if this is something you hear with your units or am I just picky. Thanks.
