You say that this happened just because you replaced the bulb and cleaned the space where the bulb is put on? Did the bulb burst when it failed?
THANK YOU for a reply. I was afraid that due to the age of my projector, no one would care or just reply... "Buy a new one" LOL.
To answer your questions. No, the bulb was not blown. It had 4000 hrs on it and I could tell it was getting a bit dim. This is the second bulb I've replaced since buying the projector brand new and have been replacing them around 4000 hrs each time. I guess this has been an awesome projector with 12,000 hrs on the unit and only replacing the bulbs.
I noticed that RGB separation on the last bulb, so the new bulb is not the issue, I just REALLY notice it now with the new, bright bulb.
I have the service manual for the unit, but it talks about contrast adjustment on the R the G and the B polarized glass/optical filter. But I'm not sure it that is a solution solver or a problem creator for me.
I have attached the pages in the manual
It's an issue I can "live with" but if it can be fixed relatively easily, I would love to do it.
Thanks again for your response!
