I just returned from a two week overseas trip yesterday. My house was
basically locked down, with heating system set at 60 degrees and all the
water/gas and non-essential electrics turned off at the fuse box.
Unfortunately, I may have overlooked one item....
A few minutes ago, I went to my basement and discovered that my AE2000
was still on. It wasn't getting any signals because the HD-DVR and A/V
receiver were not turned on. The projector was basically just projecting
a black image on the screen, with the small blue input guide blinking....This means my AE2000 was on continuosly for 350+ hours!
What kind of damage, if any, has I done to my AE2000? It is currently
showing a little over 1000 hours on this lamp. (a couple of weeks ago, I
believe it was somewhere between 600 to 700 hours)
The basement was only 53 degrees... not sure if the cold is good or bad....
The only good thing, AFAIK, is that the two dust bunnies on the lower half of the
screen have disappeared.... (the fan running 350 hours probably kicked them out)
I have just turned on my HD DVR and AV receiver.... the picture look alright.... but....
