What you get at 3400 hours is preset “gentle reminder”. The lamp is rated for 4500 hours; YMMV, but there shouldn’t be any problems using it for another week or two.Question for you guys: I picked up a JVC RS600 back in early 2017 (B-stock from a dealer), and have used it in mostly THX mode and the "moderately bright" mode that was defined on Projector Central's review back when. I just hit 3400 hours and got the lamp replacement activated. Isn't that a tad early for a lower power use? I have power set to low in both modes and have a 100" screen.
It's probably time to get a replacement lamp online, but how much life will I still have, in general terms, before dimming to unwatchable levels?
I know this is a general question, but with 2-3 hours a day viewing lately, I'm hoping I can get another week or so out of this before I replace the lamp.
Also, I bought a Vertex (never installed) about a year ago, but this might be a good time to get it set up and look at the SDR BT2020 macro.
