Hi 425hunt

When did you purchase the lamp and how long has it been since it was replaced ?

A lamp normally comes with a warranty of it's own.

I've had a couple cases like yours before.

    This is simly a factory fault with your lamp. Take it back to the retailer you bought it from , they must replace it with another.

It sounds like it is not getting enough cooling. Clean the cooling paths. I am just taking a guess as I am not familiar with this unit.

It is just very dim. The bulb has 500 hours - is it just a bulb?


Hi,
This projector had a lamp rated at 2000 hours (normal) / 3000 hours (eco mode). It last shipped in August 2008. It is a 3000 lumen projector. It's a reasonable business class projector.
As a first step, it's certainly worth checking your warranty status. Your projector will certainly be approaching the end of its warranty now, however this model was shipped with a 3 year warranty so it may still be covered if the fault is not the lamp. Check now, and log the (possible) fault with your local Hitachi service dept. eg http://hitachiserviceeu.com/support/contacts/contacts.htm
Essentially it is hard to say. You might find that replacing the lamp makes the projector considerably brighter. A new lamp in an old projector does not return the image to a showroom state though due to degradation in the LCD panels, and dirt etc.

If the projector is not displaying any sign of other fault (ie. it will run happily for a decent length of time, and there are no warning LEDs) it might be worth considering replacing the lamp. A new lamp will cost cost around £250 or $250. If you are going to replace the lamp before sending it for "repair" make sure you fit a genuine Hitachi lamp as non genuine lamps can lead to warranty problems.

I hate to echo this problem, but did either of you ever find the solution to beep code? Our church has had the projector for just two years and the lamp must have only about 400 hours on it.

Are you referring to the bulb? If so it depends on total hours used...a common bulb use is 3000 hrs. That is if it has not had rough usage....which was the case with our projector at The Salvation Army Citadel / church. If the projector is turned off before properly cooling is allowed...the life span of the bulb diminishes quickly......God bless, Capt. Hannu
