My fingers are still crossed.
Well the finger crossing doesn't seem to be working,
At less than 200 hrs my 2nd lamp has dramatically dimmed just as the first one did at 400 hours, before it died at 450. This is very discouraging! I wish I had my HD1 back. It is probably still on the same bulb.
I have written to JVC to tell of this current lamp issue. Not sure what they will do, but it is obvious that the have a problem with this PJ model.
HAs anyone mentioned "class action" on this thread before. This is not at all acceptable. We have paid good money for a defective product.
Jvc did send me a new lamp after the first failed. But thats a band-aid. It does not fix the problem. How long will the 3rd lamp last? If ther is a pattern here, I would say 100 hours or so. Sucks
