    Well after just getting the sim2 set up again and getting the pic just right it seems to have got a bit poorly.

    When i switch the unit on it makes one heck of a racket, like a whirring noise which sound like its coming from the lense area but cant be sure.
    If i give the PJ case a gentle tap this stops the noise.
    Now it does not always do this in fact it hasn't done it for a couple of days and then yesterday it didn't want to stop and again today the same.

    Problem is its an intermittent fault and you can bet if i send it away it wont make the noise.

    Still any idears?

    should i cease using right away and get it looked at?

    Oh and whats the latest S/W version for the 300xtra-H (i have installed 2.36.09 f )

    Dustin, trust me on this, your Sim2 will not die. :)

    It is most likely one of the fans vibrating against the bottom casework. You may want to slacken and tighten the allen bolts that secure the fans but don't overtighten them. The worst case scenario would be having a new fan fitted if the problem persists.

    Oh, and don't go tapping that case too much as the lamp won't appreciate it and you won't get your 8000 hrs.

    If it is an H it should take the same s/w as the curreent 30H which is 2.46.12 but I will check with Eddie at Sim2 as Alan is taking a well earned break.

    Checked with Eddie at Sim2 and 2.46.12 is fine for your 300 Xtra H

    Email me if you want me to send it
