    Hello

    I bought a second hand Hitachi PJ-TX10 projector off ebay last week, it had around 360 hours on the clock. It was probably at around 400 hours and all of a sudden it went "PLINK" and now the lamp replace light is flashing, i wasnt actually there when it happened and havent seen it since as it is at work.

    I assume that the lamp is now dead and buried, is there any chance of a revival of it?

    Can anybody recommend and good suppliers to buy a spare from?

    Thanks in advance, going away for a day or two so will reply on my return.

    Cheers

    Chris

    Hi thudspud,
    The model/Part number of the lamp is: DT00611.
    A quick search in Google showed me several results.
    Hope this helps

    It may be worth seeing if the 'trip switch' has gone inside it similar to the Sanyo Z4 ~ :rotfl: Turns out you solved it before (was going to post the link!), so perhaps you might be able to do it with the Hitachi if the bulb is intact?

    Yes, there is actually.

    I recently got my lamp's burner replaced (which is the bit that fails). The cost was a mere £125. You have to send your lamp module to them, and they will clean the reflector and replace the burner with a high quality one. The brightness and colours really are fantastic; much better than my original.

    Here's the link

    Good luck,

    A saving of £25.00 to have your old lamp re-gassed or re-bulbed/lamped instead of a Genuine new lamp is great but, do remember, APO or Re-manufactured lamps will Void any warranty you may have on the projector.

    There is basically no way they would know. After recieving the lamp module back there is absoloutely no sign of anything being done to it.

    It's up to the OP if they want to save £25, but in my case I saved £125.

    Humble apologies... I thought you said it cost you £125, which is £25 less than you can buy a genuine one for.

    Sorry!

    thanks for the eplies. I will look into it.

    Delh68, Maybe there is a thermal trip inside, Still haven't seen the unit since it went and the warranty has already expired so will take it to bits and see :)

    Cheers
