@eddyc you have a broken cog? if so can you send it to me?
Did anybody have any joy with this?
I've tried Hitachi several times this week with a unit which is 3 1/2 years old - so out of warranty - They will not budget and refuse to replace the unit.
We were a BSF rebuild so have around 60 Hitachi UDST projectors - I'm not looking forward to this happening across the whole site!
Ok cool can't gurauntee anything but would be interesting to see if I can model it and 3d print a replacement.
Had that on a few of those, one was repaired as still under warranty, one repaired at quite a cost and one which was written off due to cost and age of that projector. Still like them though although tending to get the LED ones now.
We've stripped this one down now and there are three cogs, all which are missing half of their teeth. Does anybody know a good place to order cogs?! :-/
If anyone can send me one broken or intact or draw around one and provide some dimensions I can do it.
Called Hitachi and they are still honouring the out of warranty repair.

Same problem over here, I managed to 3d print one of the cogs (35 teeth one) but still isnt working, I think the small one on the mirror was also broken, opening it up again now
We've had nine of these projectors with the same issue over the last year or so all out of warranty. Last time an engineer came out, he said Hitachi had increased the warranty to 5 years on this model and should of emailed us with the details but had never hear anything from them. Worth a call to support. They have started swapping the projectors so you get a new projector and new lamp
Yep got an stl file, pm me your mail and i will send it to you!
