I'm selling my beloved but non-functional X500R. I purchased four years ago from another AVSer here. I believe I am the third owner. It has functioned wonderfully, but recently stopped working due to the common ballast issue. Of course I don't know for sure if it is the ballast, but seems very likely. Before the unit stopped working, it was fully functional, zoom, shift, focus no problem, as I used it in a CIH setup.

I'd estimate about 3000 hours on the unit, based on my usage and what the previous owner told me. The current lamp has about 2000 hours on it. I have had it on a shelf, not sure what previous owners did.

Here's a link to where I describe the problem, and the few posts after mine describe the same problem. One user is looking into a fix.

Here's a video of the status lights after the unit shuts down:

Not sure of a fair price so feel free to make an offer, but I'm asking $300 plus shipping from Albuquerque, NM
I'm happy to ship Fedex, UPS, or USPS. Please use their calculators to estimate your shipping cost with these dimensions:

I have the original box and packing materials.

Hey, @markhyams - Do you still have this machine? If so, I'm interested. Thanks!
Sorry that I didn't update this earlier! The unit has been sold.
