    I have the TH-AE200 from PriceJapan

    It has only 60 hrs of use

    The PJ standby led was on. I pressed the on button and turned around to grab the keyboard.

    Then I hear a short circuit kind of sound and there was no power going to the unit.

    Close up there was a slight smell also.

    Someone please tell me that there is a fuse in this thing ???

    Its going to cost big $$$ to send it back.

    Any ideas ?

    Sounds like the PSU has blown, its quite common failure with small projectors.

    Is it something that can be fixed easily or do I need to send it back ?

    All up it was going to cost $490 AUS to send it back to pricejapan and get a replacement.
    Definitely a lesson learnt for me.


    I will let you know how I go... (fingers crossed)
