    Have notuced recently that the picture contrast goes up and down, almost like a very slow flicker, is this a bulb problem or a problem with the iris. I have 1000 hours of use on economy bulb setting . Any ideas fellas ??

    Turned the iris off.....and it still does it. You're probably right. Could this be dangerous for the PJ if I don't change it soon or should it be ok for a while..Bit skint at the moment so can't really afford a new bulb....:(

    Mine was like this for a couple of months until I bought a new bulb from PriceJapan.

    One thing I found was that when on high lamp and high fan power it happened less - then in the service menu I turned the fan to full mode and that pretty much stopped it - but it sounded like a jet taking off so you have to crank the volume up ;)
