Can someone share with me what happened before thier G-11 bulb died. This is what is happening to me. Let me know if you think it is a bulb issue. The picture just does't seem stable. I set phase and traking for perfect pixal but now I have to change the settings to get it to look ok never perfect just ok. The picture is much dimmer. Blacks look good though. I have never had trouble getting the bulb to light and I had expected that to be my first clue,maybe not though eh? I only have 850hours on the thing and I thought these things lasted 1500-1600 hrs. Is it just bad luck. And no I turn it on and off a lot. If this is the bulb looks like I will be seeing what a 500w bulb will look like in the old G-11. Any ideas?
