DLP Chip Numbers
I have an NEC NP200 DLP projector, whose DLP chip is pretty much dead (white dots all over the screen, hard to see image anymore). I got it taken partially taken apart, and safely got the old DLP chip out of the lens assembly. I looked up the model number on the chip (1076-6319W), but I couldn't find a new one at a reasonable price with that same model number. I'm usually OK with used parts, but used parts for electronics like this make me nervous, especially when its harder to tell when a used chip will go kaput. My question is this: does the model number matter as long as the DLP chip is the right size? And if it doesn't matter, how would one tell the size based on internet pictures and descriptions?
I included a picture of the dead chip from my projector below.
