THIS ISN"T A POWER/ELECTRICAL PROBLEM!!! It's a Mitsubishi problem.
So now, is anyone willing and able to help me with this? I refuse to believe that I'm the only one out there that has had 2 of these turds act this way.
Is there an update for the 4900?
Thanks in advance...
There can be other problems besides voltage (floating ground for example). But first, have you taken the projector to another location and plugged it in and tested it with the same results?
Do you have anything else connected to the circuit you use for the projector? Does it have a surge protector perhaps, another appliance (some motor driven devices can be very dirty for example).
Since you've had the same problem with two units, you need to issolate the problem and see if the units work at another location.
It seems strange you'd have the same problem with two different units, but then I've been thourgh four A210 Bluetooth adapters and they've all been bad but I suspect the batteries died on the shelf and they were all old stock even though they came from different sources.
You might also get your power company to check the power with a recorder that would keep track of voltage, ground, amperage, etc on a time recorder to see if the problem is different during different times of the day. Also how many houses are on your step down transformer? You could have a problem that is actually related to a neighbor's house.
