mitsubishi hc3800 lamp life and brightness

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
i got to about 400h mark and it seems as though the lamp is dimmering, i now have to use BSPLAYER because it has higher brightness compared to other softwares could it be that at the 400h mark the projector dimmers so much?, i would say i'd lost around 30% of brightness, i cant see hair in the dark anymore if use VLC player or total media theater.
i tried different settings but it seems like it has to do with the hardware itself.
any thoughts? did this happen to any of you?

It's common for a bulb to noticeably dim after 100 - 200 hours. That's why you have to re-calibrate contrast and brightness. You need to do this.
