My nec ht1000 needs a new ballast for its bulb, and I found a nec lt260 that takes the same bulb as mine, and has the same shape outer casing, so would this ballast work in mine??

Did you try PMing Sheridan1952? He might know. I have no idea. In theory you would think it'd work fine since both units take the same lamp, but I don't want to give you any misinformation.

The Power Supplies in both models have the same part numbers.


So...GO FOR IT and good luck!!


PS. You're lucky my service call was canceled and I got back in time to answer your query.

Not a problem. The Power Supplies and the Lamp Ballast Power Supplies are the same in both models. That's what I meant. I should have been more specific, sorry.


There are internal differences between the two projectors, the HT1000 is the Home Theater version of the LT260. The most obvious one being the Color Wheel. The firmware is also different.

well thanks, i hope the ballast is good on this projector, its an as-is item because they didn't have any cords to test it. Its a surplus ebay seller, its only 30 bucks though, so not to much money.

I looked at the listing. You're right, it's as-is and they give no information as to the condition, so it is a gamble. Still, for the price, I'd take a chance and go for it. Let us know how it goes for you. I know you've been trying to get your projector back up, I hope this does it for you.

Probably, I just don't know off the top of my head. I'll have to go through the manuals and let you know.


EDIT...Just a quick check shows the LT220/240/260 all have the same ballast.
