New bulb goes boom....


Standard Member
Not having much luck with bulbs. Ordered a replacement which arrived doa. 2nd one promptly sent out and fired up but 15 minutes later....



Luckily it didn't damage the projector and I still have life left in the original bulb but it seems I've hit a small snag when dealing with a product that's no longer manufactured and the 'original' bulbs are not made by the manufacturer.

It'll be interesting to see what the company providing them says.

Might be best forgoing the bulb upgrade and go for a projector upgrade?

If you do daft maths of the bulb cost and the proj sold on ebay does it come anywhere near close to a new proj you would like?
