I've made sure all the settings are up so that I'm running in standard mode n everything but it just doesn't look bright at all. Its cloudy out today and the blinds are all down and closed and the wife n daughter both agree it doesn't look right.
Is there something I'm missing on doing after the timer hits 5k hrs and shuts down??
Where did you get the replacement lamp. Is it a genuine Mitsubishi lamp assembly? The new lamp may be defective or even a counterfeit. Some suppliers claim the 230 watt lamp for the 7800 is the same but the 7900 is supposed to be a 240 watt lamp. OSRAM P-VIP 240/0.8 E20.8 240 0.8 E20.8 is the correct bare bulb.
