Topic:   Help Color Wheel shattered!

New guy here that needs some help. I am glad I ran across this forum as I had no clue as to why my projector failed the other night. I think this is the failure and may try to repair this myself. I have not opened up the projector yet to verify, but all my symptoms sound like a color wheel failure. Can anyone help me to open up a Sharp XV-Z2000? So, I am watching the other night and I hear a little pop and the fan hum noise gets a little louder. I could also smell a slight burnt smell. Picture was fine for about 5 mins. and I decided to shut down. The next day, I fired it up and the colors are all washed out and orangy. Watched it for a while to see what would happen and it became more washed out and the fan noise got louder. Fired it up again last night to see what it looked like and it took forever for a picture to come up and the fan noise was now more pronouned and ocsillating. I'll try opening it up tonight, but it sure sounds like a color wheel failure, no? Sheridan, what do you think? Thanks for the offer to help all of the folks here - can you price up a color wheel replacement for me? I think I would like to repair this as it was a pretty good projector just a few years ago and I am not too keen on spending $2,000+ for a new one. Thank you!

Topic:   New projector lamp Vs. a projector purchase

My question is the cost of a lamp vs. a new projector. The lamp for my Sharp XV-Z2000 is close to $500.00 w/ S&H plus tax. I'm looking at the DT-510 which has better specs in some accounts and auditioning recentlly for a little over $700.00. I also wanna know if I can mount it in the same position, I'm about 15 feet from my screen (92" diag) I'm thinking I'm gonna go with the new unit. Looking for feedback, thanks. This is a great foerum and I ran across it by accident. I will post some pics as soon as I can. I've installed my system in my living room.

Topic:   Sanyo Z4 or Sharp xv-z2000?

Almost ready to buy, I've read a 1000 pages of info...but I haven't seen the Sanyo Z4. I've seen the sharp xv z-2000, and seems pretty good for the money. I am a stickler for resolution, color and black levels. Saw the sony hp s51 and thought it was ok, but liked the sharp 2000 better. 1. Does anyone know where I can view the z4 in the Wash D.C. area? 2. Has anyone seen the sharp vs the sanyo and which delivers better color, contrast and black levels? 3. IS the DT 400 the same as the z2000? Thanks, Steve-o

Topic:   Projector Setup / Placement

I'm looking for information about setup or configuration for a front projection system. This is my first system so i don't have any previous experience to draw on. i'm finishing my basement so i'm trying to determine where in the ceiling to run my outlet/cables for the projector. Information: Space for the screen can accomdate up to a 100" or so. The height of the ceiling where the screen is - 7'3". Seating distance from the screen is about 9'. The ceiling height of where the projector would be mounted is 6'3". I was thinking of the Sharp XV-Z2000 for a projector. Does anyone know of any guides for how to setup everything up? How do i position the screen vertically? Center of the screen at eye level? What distance should the projector be from the screen? and at what height? Are any of these setup parameters dependent on the projector it self?
