    I'm stuck in South Africa without any Sony help:
    My Sony VPL CS6 has been a great home theatre projector for 350 hours now. Suddenly, is has lost contrast or something - bright images too bright and picture seems burned out.
    - It can't be the lamp - 350hrs on it
    - It's not the input signal, I've tried various sources
    - It's not the screen nor room, they're perfect for home theatre
    - I've fiddles all the available settings to no avail

    I'm desperate for guidance.

    normal everyday 'lightbulbs' often glow extremely bright for a while before they expire completely.
    Just a thought. not a very cheery one though :rolleyes:

    To determine whether or not it IS the lamp

    Is the colour of maximum white brighter than it used to be?

    If yes, it pretty much has to be the lamp (unless you had some very odd contrast or brightness settings)

    If no, then the lamp is an unlikely culprit, and something must presumably have gone awry with the video processing and/or LCD drivers.
