Topic:   50' Projector Cables?

Hello, My church has finally decided to mount our projector on the ceiling rather than running it off a rolling unit on the floor. We're using an Epson PowerLiteS4 and I was curious how exactly do you usually wire them when they're mounted upside down on the ceiling? We decided to run the wires in a racetrack along the ceiling and down the wall to a laptop, however, I am having difficulty finding a USB A-B wire long enough. We estimated about 40' total to stretch from the projector to the laptop, so we figured 50' to be safe. I've found a 50ft VGA cable, but no luck on the USB or power cable. Does anyone have any suggestions or know where I can find wires long enough? Do they make them this long or do you need to go wireless or something? If anyone had any ideas, it would be appreciated! Thanks.

Topic:   Help with Powerlite S4

I have two Powerlite S4's, both with the same problem. They are roughly 1 year old, and the problem occured a short time after replacing the lamps. It wasn't caused by the process of replacing the lamps. I have a large area in the middle of the projected image that has no blue. The shape is roughly the shape of the lens and takes up most of the image area, about one-half to two-thirds. Outside this area the picture is good, inside it is missing the color blue and has a blue outline around the perimeter of this area. It's not out of focus or distorted within the affected area. I have tried to find some info on this condition, and the only thing I come across is that on these models, the blue filter can become damaged by the lamp. This sounds like a possibility but now I need to fix it, or whatever the problem is. I am an electronics technician so this is within my capabilities, only I have no info on this fault. Any information, part numbers, or links to applicable information would be appreciated.
