I have the same problem, it started after I sent the projector back for unrelated repairs in long beach (they wanted to inspect the unit before replacing the second burst bulb). Now they want me to pay another $70+ to ship it back, I'm frankly sort of tired dealing with these issues.
JVC screwed up on the bulb, we all know that, and in general they have tried to make up for that issue. But, I think they were trying to save face when the asked me to send the unit in for the second burst bulb (I also noticed that there was some sautering mentioned on the repair sheet when they sent it back). I'm kind of upset that it came back from Long Beach having this remote problem from day one, I assume they screwed something up when they opened it up (unnecessarily I might add). Also, I can no longer autocalibrate the projector using the serial port on the back, seems something they did screwed that up too, since it worked perfectly before.
In short, this projector kind of sucks to own, until you turn it on and watch a good movie. When this is calibrated (I use a lumagen) it looks simply stunning. I think we all just wish that the lamps and electronics were up to the task of day to day viewing. Hopefully I will get JVC to fix mine up, but it is still going to cost me at least $70 more, a small price to pay, but money is tight now and I already paid ~$3500 for the projector, I thought that would be enough for a nice mid level projector but apparently I was wrong.
Also, anyone else having trouble telephoning the repair center? I'm kind of playing phone tag with them (admittedly I called about 6 or 7 times, they called me once).
