Hi, It's one of the later ones (Oct 02) which I thought wasn't supposed to have the PSU probs of the older ones. Anyway, my girlfriend said it went 'pop' when she turned it on, but it worked fine all night. Next time I turned it on it was totally dead. no red light, no nothing. The regulator board is giving out the expected 230v, but I didn't dare probe any further. The bulb looks OK, 'cept I don't know how a bulb of that ilk is supposed to look, so I'm not sure. No blackening or anything. There is no resisitance when I put an ohmeter on it. Any ideas? If I have to buy a new bulb, any hot tips on cheap suppliers? I'd send it back to Panny, but I've heard terrible things about their customer service. Cheers Ian.
