    Hey fellas,

    I have a Panny AE200 with a usage of about 500 hours on it. Lately I noticed that the overall picture is just too dim. I wonder can the lamp be bad? I only know that the lamp can either be blown or working, not sure if it can go weak half way?

    The only thing that happened recently was I accidently knocked over some cables and yanked my AE200 to topple on one of its leg. I dont think it was a hard knock at all. It worked but Im not sure if this has anything to do with it. I just feel theres something wrong with it now being too dim.

    Anyone can help me or can suggest anything? All my settings are at default

    Thanks all

    I just now bought an AE300 in the classifieds with a similar issue. It seems that some of these were supplied with bulbs that just weren't any good, and they drop off very quickly. At least I hope that's the case, and I haven't totally wasted my money.

    I haven't got the PJ yet, so I can't confirm anything.
