    to have a projector lamp refurbished or rebuilt? I bought a Mitsubishi X300U projector, excellent display IMHO, on Ebay and the lamp has about 500 hours left. (I knew that when I bought it) I also knew the lamps are expensive but I see there is a guy in the States who reckons he can rebuild projector lamps and return them to nearly as good as new. Has anyone had this done or is it a scam?
    Thanks

    PS My projector has a few dusts blobs. Anyone any experience of cleaning an X300U?
    TIA
    John

    I found it hard to believe but being no expert in projector lamp technology I supposed there was a chance.

    Yes it can be done dependent on the type of lamp, however the results arent always great, so your better off just stumping up the cash for a new 1

    Yes, I have done quite a lot of searching and here is the best price I've found. Anyone know of a better source?
    Thanks

    Follow up.

    This is the message I got when I asked the Ebay company about rebuilding my lamp. I copy it here as it may be of interest.
