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 this is the 265W version of the Ushio lamp; older JVC projectors use 220W or 230W versions.
The cost is $120 USD plus $15 tracked shipping to US or Canada. Item will be shipped from 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 once the 4 retaining screws are removed, 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.
EDIT (Courtesy of forum member Dreamliner): There is a small spring that is held in place by the power connector, see the last attachment Power_Connector_Spring.jpg. If it falls out, please make sure you re-insert it before putting the power connector in place.
- 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 all brackets are resting flush against the plastic housing, before tightening the screws. If necessary, reseat the lamp so that the brackets rest flush. Make sure the screws are snug but do not over-tighten them.
