    Hi,

    My JVC X30 PJ is getting quite old now and worried a breakdown could happen anytime... can anyone recommend any companies they've used to get extended warranty/insurance due to break down?

    I realise this wouldn't include the bulb and you never know how good they are until you have to make a claim!

    I did find KAPUT but some bad reviews around saying they wouldn't pay out which you could probably find about any company I suppose...

    Thanks

    I don't think there is anything useful. I found one but the amount they'd pay out had a maximum of something like £300, and the premiums weren't cheap.

    Seems a bit pointless given a 2nd hand X30 is now only worth about £500, and the most typical repair you might have to do (balast board) is around £600.

    Put some pennies in a jar and with any luck you'll be most of the way to at least a used replacement by the time it dies. I managed to get £150 for an X3 I'd launched accidentally off the ceiling mount and wrecked, so even broken it is worth something.

    Ah I see. Thanks for your reply. Did you sell your wrecked X3 on here or ebay?
