Really, Maybe you could increase the WOW factor of your viewing pleasure with a high end screen like the ST130G4 or similar and that would only be a fraction of the cost that you paid for your big Sony, lol.

Here is a shot of the optical block during my repair. The panel at the top is the one I replaced.

Luckily you can operate the PJ whilst it is in pieces if you know what to do (carefully) and have someone else up next to the screen whilst you line up the panel with the others.

Tiny tiny movements can be the difference between spot on and WAAAAY out of alignment.

Ha, well, that is as maybe, but I wouldn't get it past the Mrs (or myself for that matter) as we both see no reason to change it. The pictures on it are superb.

The screen is worth a few 000, but I didn't pay anything like that. I got really lucky with it and have used it for my 50/90/550 and 760.

We certainly don't need any more brightness either.

LOL, yes the wife factor. Hey if you're happy with it then that's what counts and your pics look great anyway.

cool, hopefully I won't ever have to replace a panel. But didn't you say you had something like 60K hours on that proj. Where did you manage to get a panel from, Sony? How much was the panel.

So I ended up getting a Sony lamp from Mike here at the AVS store, yes a little more money but I know it's a real Sony part. And that comes with a free filter too.

In this world you have 2 types of people singers and dancers. There is nothing more I love when either a man or woman gets in there and does it with their hands! With the lamp base Sony projectors green primaries were always dominant compared to other commercial and high in projectors. Maybe this quality was one of the reason's of a more film like appearance. But because of this you really had to know what you were doing when it came to dailing in the picture. Reference movie like Apocalypto would really excel with all the earth colors.

It is always the blue panel (I say 'blue', but all are identical and it is the filters etc that determine the colour) that suffers, due to UV light slowly destroying the panel.

Not 60k hours () just over 12k in total. Got the panel from eBay and it was surprisingly good value at around $80.
The projector I got for absolute peanuts and the panel was cheap enough that if it all went wrong I would put it down to the cost of the education.

Image went from extremely green, to back to normal.

Cool.

If you are prepared to pay the cost, it is the best way to get the proper item.

Those dark shots are hard to capture.

Lol, yeah after I sent that I said no way it was 60K, still 12k is huge and if that was the only problem then you did good, lol.

Yeah I didn't want take a chance on the lamp and have it fail an early death because it was some 2nd knock off of a Philips lamp, but who knows, yours works fine, for now.

I bought the PJ as a scrapper essentially and then I saw the panels for sale and thought, sod it, I will give it a go as the internal layout is very similar to even the new machines. I could swallow the cost of the panel if it all went Pete Tong.

As for my lamp, it is a genuine Philips (the build and appearance of the reflector etc is identical and all the print on it is as clear and crisp as the original bulb) and once in the housing is performing excellently.

I completely understand you thoughts on buying your lamp, I wouldn't have compromised in any way if I had been buying for a 'from new' full price unit.

In my case I was patient and got a good deal that didn't cost many times what the PJ cost.

Sounds like you did real good on that projector purchase. For $80 was the panel new?
I'm curious about the bulb you bought, what is the Philips part# on it and does it say "Made In China" on it, the ones I see on Ebay from the guy you linked to say China on them. I suppose it's possible these days that Philips has a plant in China but I don't trust that to be the truth. And we all know what Chinese knock-offs are like, lol.

Yup a brand new panel.

I will be willing to wager that the bulb you receive from AVS will be 'made in China' too.

I have seen many Sony original lamps (Sony branded housings and packaging) and I personally haven't seen one that says 'made in Belgium' since about 2010.

All the latest Sony PJs are currently made in China too.

Yeah you may well be correct there, I'll let you know when I receive it and I'll check the one I pull out(when I pull it).

Apologises for not great images, there isn’t much action and the outside scenes were tricky to get right.

After 'Moon' you need something a bit low brow and actiony. Good choice.

I love those exo-suits and their redhead colleague is quite 'nice' too.

Never seen it before so didn’t know what to expect or the plot, for a movie with little action it actually gripped my attention.

Surprisingly good quality, definitely loads of action and explosions, oh and sexy female co-stars.

Wow imagine waking up and finding out you just a mechanical human part. I believe this movie was produced by Blum studios? They produced 3 or 4 more movies with controversial plots.

I just switched it to high and it's running fine on high, but it was a B stock and I don't recall if it had any hours showing when I got, well maybe 1hour check time. But then Sony could have reset the timer after they serviced it for the B stock pile.
