Ushio NSHA250JK Bare Bulbs for JVC PK-L2615U Projector Lamp
Note: I previously posted in the Classified section but apparently the Dealer Specials is more appropriate, according to the forum rules.
FS: Ushio NSHA250JK Bulb for JVC PK-L2615U (RS400/RS500/RS600 etc)
I'm selling brand new Ushio NSHA250JK 265W bare bulbs. These can be installed in the JVC PL-L2615U/L2615UP lamp housing which is used in all recent JVC projectors (DLA-RS-400, RS-420, RS-440, RS-500, RS-520, RS-540, RS-600, RS-620, RS-640, X550, X750, X950 etc). Apparently even the new native 4K models use the same bulb, in a different housing (PK-L2618U).
Note that some of the PK-L2615U lamps on the auction site claimed to be OEM, are actually 220W or 230W versions for older models and do may have the JK-suffix for JVC projectors.
I have tested three of these so far in JVC X550R and X750R projectors. I'm getting up to 400 lux (130 nits) in Low Power mode when zoomed to a screen size of 92" diag from 13'.
Asking $120 plus $15 tracked shipping to US or Canada.
Installation instructions: It's relative easy to install the bulb into an existing housing. The only tools required are a Philips screwdriver and a pair of tweezers.
It's best to work with the lamp in the orientation shown in the picture, as otherwise some parts may fall out.
To remove the old bulb:
- Remove screw 1 and the metal bracket that it holds. This is not strictly necessary but gives more ready access to the following steps.
- Remove the two screws 2 that hold the wires to the bulb terminals. Remember which wire goes where.
- Remove the four screws 3 (two shown in picture, two more at the back) that hold the brackets clamping the lamp to the housing. Lift up the four brackets, remembering the order. Lift up the bulb. There are more brackets underneath; do not remove those.
To install the new bulb, reverse these steps. Make sure when inserting the brackets, the little alignment pin poke through the hole. Also make sure the screws are snug but do not over-tighten them.
