Does anybody know of a place to send blown projector bulbs to get fixed instead of having to replace the whole housing?

Is it just burned out, or did it pop? Also, what lamp is it? Some you can change the actual bulb element within the housing, some you cannot.

There is a company called joppru or something like that. I used them once a long time ago. If you search the archives, you might find it.

I did this last year, and replaced a burned out Sony VPL-VW10HT bulb (best new price $441) with a re-built bulb for which I paid $269, not including shipping. It lasted a whole 457 hours before exploding. 60% of the cost of a new bulb, but less than 25% of the expected lifetime. Luckily, my new VW60 arrived shortly after the burn-out...so I'm a happy camper again! :)
