Has anyone on this thread experienced uneven illumination on the screen? I replaced my OEM bulb with one from ShopJimmy after the OEM bulb blew.
At first there were issues with light flickering which caused this strange effect where parts of the screen would get lighter, parts would get darker and it would oscillate like that for some time. It wasn't really noticeable unless viewing a very solid picture. I was able to get around this issue by setting the bulb intensity to high.
Now at a high bulb intensity, there isn't any flickering but now some parts of the screen are 'hot' and on a white background, it's easy to tell that the screen is being lit unevenly.
What do you guys think? Could this be the bulb? After all, the bulb should be emitting light in all directions evenly. Could it be the ballast improperly interacting with the bulb? I haven't had any issues light start failures with this bulb.
I also recently replaced the DLP chip, but that was before getting the replacement bulb and the there were no issues in the interim.
