I've never heard of a place where someone can "trade in" a projector. Your best bet is to try and sell it. Lately I've seen a lot of RS-2's sell for around $1000. If you were happy with the JVC and want something brighter you could look into getting a refurb or B-Stock JVC DLA-RS40 or RS45. I'd give AVScience a call. They always have great prices and usually have the JVCs I've mentioned in stock.
