I replaced my 3-1/2 year old Hitachi Home-1 projector with a new Sony. Wow...what a difference.

Now the big question....what to do with the old one. I have a co-worker that told me he might be interested in buying it. Does anyone know how much I should ask for it. Lamp life is 2000 hours, and have about 500 on it now.

Anyone have any ideas?

I also noticed I have a horizontal line on my screen that is very slight, but I noticed it. It travels from the bottom to the top, then comes back around and starts over. Does anyone know what the problem might be? Should I ground the DVD, the projector and surround sound or could it be something else?

Thanks,
Tim

It sounds like a grounding problem. I would say the projector is worth maybe $200 as that bulb could go any time.

Thanks for your input. That's what I was thinking....2 or 300 bucks. Anyone know of a place where I can list it for sale?

I sold it on Craigslist for 325 dollars! The guy that bought it was thoroughly impressed with the unit. So was I, for that matter.
