Hey folks, I've run into an issue with my 5040ub and I'm looking for suggestions on the source of the problem.
I few weeks ago I decided to update the firmware in my projector. At the time I also had a few small dust spots, so I figured while I was working on things I would try blowing some compressed air into the system and see what happens.
I must have tilted the compressed air or something, because while I was blowing into the projector, I heard a loud pop, and then a very strong suphur smell. I let the projector cool off a bit, thinking I probably killed it, but when I turned it on it powered up no problem. The issue is that things seem to be dimmer now, It's not the bright picture I remember.
At first I thought I maybe killed the bulb, so I replaced that today, but the picture is no better. It actually seems not bad when I'm on the HOME screen that lists the inputs and settings button, but when displaying from any source it looks dim.
Any suggestions? I'm thinking of opening it up to see if I can determine where the source of the pop/sulphur smell came from, and repair that. Not sure where to find replacement internal parts though (I'm in Canada).
