Just got this in February. Barely 400 hours.
Tonight, the picture just shut off off, no warning. The red lights on top started to blink, 3 at a time (which indicates bulb is used up or high heat)
I let the unit cool off, but it won't display any picture, still just flashing the light 3 times.
How does a bulb go bad after 400 hours? This has gotta be under warranty still.

Hey gang, finally got my new projector (thanks to suggestions from this board) and am worried it might be faulty. Here's what's going on...
The top line of my picture is completely level and straight.
The bottom line goes up slightly to the right (so it looks like it's tilted slightly). Upon close inspection, it appears as if the height of the picture is actually narrower on the right side than it is on the left. Is there any fix for this or do I have a faulty projector?
Thanks for your help!

Hello Friends, I have the opportunity to purchase the highly recommended Sony VPL-HW40ES projector. However I'm concerned considering the throw distance available in my finished basement.
I have drywalled duct work that limits the throw distance to 9-1/2 feet (lens to screen). Checking the projector calculator, I could project a 90" image. My seating distance is 10-1/2 feet.
I could mount the projector under the drywall duct work, which would be increase the throw distance to 11 feet. But the projector would then hang quite low. I'd prefer to mount the projector in front of the drywall ductwork to the ceiling which keeps the throw distance at 9-1/2 feet.
Is this too short a distance for the Sony? Or should I consider the BenQ W1070 as a better option. The BenQ would allow for a larger screen, but I would really prefer the Sony based on the reviews and the fact I can purchase it at a significant discount. Thanks in advance.
