    Projector bulb is dim (Sanyo PLC SE20)

    I have a Sanyo PLC SE20A lcd projector that's got considerably dimmer of late. I'm thinking it's the bulb, but I was expecting it to go pop like a light bulb.

    Anyone else seen this?

    Pete -- who's loathe to spend ~£275 on the wrong part.

    Needs a new bulb. If the bulb in it is new then get that returned under warrenty. If a new bulb doesn't fix it then get the projector returned under warrenty.

    almost certainly the bulb is on its way out.
    I recommend Blanka Bimi at forward vision 01189320890
    She really knows her Sanyo's and does good prices on SE20 bulbs (£240 IIRC)

    I recomment Universal AV here in Bradford, email Matthew Anderson on matthew.anderson@uniav.com

    I get most of my things from there, most recently two replacement Promethean pens at £25 instead of the £45 charged everywhere else!

    lol oops.

    Oh well, not our department, hopefully it'll make them be more careful in the future, I mean we've had a dozen boards for years and never had any break, they have 1 board for a few months and break 2 pens!

    Should have charged £45.

    @all
    cool, thanks.

    We'll probably be using the guys who provided the kit (I know they keep them in stock and I have a single source).
