I was just starting a new print on my Vivitek when a loud POP! happened. Sure enough, the bulb decided to give up the ghost before the first exposure.
I've cleaned out the bulb housing, making sure to get rid of all the small pieces of glass and verifying nothing else broke inside. I'll place an order for a new bulb assembly on Monday and hope I am not out of service for too long. :-P
Anyone else hit end of life on their projector bulb yet?
