I just received the email that I never wanted, my AE 4000 at exactly 3 years is DEAD. A "doctor" informed me that the main board is dead and the lamp housing cracked. Total repair bill approx. $1800. I am contemplating just selling the remains back to the repair doctor to cover the cost of the $65 analysis. I do not want to pay another $50 for shipping a dead box back. The death occurred after a 5 second power drop. The Lamp shut off and the fan continued to run. In fact the fan ran all night long would never shut off. I had to unplug it to shut the fan off. Looking for a new replacement PJ an at the moment and stuck watching a 40" Aquos. I would appreciate any thoughts and condolences on how to proceed with the DEAD projector. Is there more than $120 left in its dead case???
