Can you help me identify if this kit has already been installed or not? How can I tell? Remember, my unit was repaired under warranty in 2008 for failure to start. At the time I was told the lamp power supply, lap igniter, and lamp were replaced.
I am afraid the only solution would involve opening the Ruby and have a very close look at the currently installed parts.
Then you could compare the parts involved in the Hard Start Mod Kit to the pictures and parts references given in the Hard Start Mod Kit Installation Manual
, especially the insulating sheet assy (A-1206-461-A) and the Sleeve ferrite clamp (1-500-082-11) which did not exist in the original Ruby.
Note that any part installed 5 years ago can obviously have died since...
PS: I know I will not convince anybody, but the main reason I kept my Ruby for the last 7 years is that whenever I compared a Ruby with its Xenon lamp to any other video-projector with a more classical UHP one, I always preferred by far the colors and tones balance offered by the Xenon lamp.
But I may finally change my mind for the successor of the VPL-VW95, rumored for mid-2013... Edited by geeji - 1/21/13 at 12:01am
