Epson suggests I ship it across the country for repair but not really interested in that at all.
I have this exact same problem, same model. Projector was working fine, bulb went out, ordered new bulb and there's a discolored horizontal line down the middle of the screen. Is there some kind of reset or dip or setting causing this so people "Don't swap bulbs at home"? or what. Love this projector but just "swapping the bulb" shouldnt' cause any issues like this.
If anyone finds the answer post here,..if I do I'll do the same.
