    Only you can say
    First off this projector will stink of smoke and the tar that gets inside will eating at the electronics as we speak.
    The 150 really never was much of a machine for home cinema.
    You can still get replacement parts including the tubes, but you would probably be able to pick a better unit than spending the money retubing.

    I used to own a 190 which is similar. Assuming the tubes are burnt out you'll be able to achieve an OK picture, but if they are burnt then give it a miss. Re-tubing would be far too expensive.

    I had mine for around three years and it went wrong quite a bit. I ended up selling it as scrap as I coulndn't justify more expense to fix it. Now I have an SVP400 which is far superior, but has already gone wrong once!

    My advice would be to save up more cash (£1K - £2K) and do it with a second hand projector more up to the job.
