Just curious. Are most of those hours with the bulb in low power mode or high power? Or do you view a lot of 3D which automatically puts it in high power?
I watch quite a bit of 3D on mine? I would guess 100 of the 350 on mine is from 3D viewing. For 2D I run low power, but I always run the fan in high. I would rather have a little extra backround noise vs. extra cooking of the equipement.
Sorry to hear about your issue. Please let us know what the resolution was to fix it if Sony is forth coming.
Never thought of it but it could be an issue with the bulb instead of a polarizer. We haven't heard of many polarizer failures on the SXRD units in the last few years especially on one with low hours.
Also I am assuming from your posts that you were operating the unit in an upright mode (table top) instead of upside down in a ceiling mount setup.
I'm located in the TC also. Where did you buy yours from? I went with AVS since none of the local businesses were willing to deal.Edited by Toknowshita - 1/10/13 at 1:22pm
