I have had my C3X for about 8 months (500 hrs) and tonight I heard a pop and the light went out in the middle of a movie. I have not opened the projector but I smelled smoke. I shut the projector off and let the fan run till it stopped before turning off the power completely. My question is, should I replace the bulb myself or take it to the Sim2 office in Miramar Florida (which is about 1 hour away). I'm sure it can't be as easy as replacing a regular bulb but is it a fairly simple task? Does the process require re-calibration? Where can I get the bulb? Lastly, warranty? (I bought this projector from a dealer that does not provide reliable service so will Sim2 help) Does anyone know the answer to these questions.
