So I accidentally left my Epson 8500UB (LCD) projector on overnight, and the next day I tried to use it and now all of the black areas are a weird black and white static. Pics are attached. This area is supposed to be completely black, and the amount of distortion depends very much on the brightness level. It'll go from completely black like it should be, to almost completely white! It's not the signal, since it does the same thing even when attached to different sources. It's even a little distorted on the "pattern" mode.

Is it broken beyond repair? I have no idea what could be causing this!

It looks like something fried. I've left many projectors on for 12+ hours, it should have been fine.

Rocked a Mitsubishi hc3000 for 10-12 hours on a garage ceiling that was 90 degrees ambient temp.
