    I have the Sharp XV-Z9000, but the Japaneese version. It is only 1 year and 4 months old. I have used it less than 60 hours, and now I have a problem with it. No picture, took it in for service, and they think it is the ballast, about a $300 part. Of course, it is out of warranty, which may not have been honored in this country anyway. Has anyone else experienced a problem with this projector? Does anyone know where I might be able to purchase an extended warranty on it? The dealer I purchased from is apparently out of business.

    FYI - credit card I purchased this on has doubled the warranty, and has so far covered costs of repair, currently they have paid $3404, and I am requesting they replace the input board( it is now working from the svideo, composite, and 15pin computer display connectors, but not component or DVI connectors), that is estimated to be a $700+ part.

    So in other words the projector is still under warranty and all repairs will be covered?

    I currently own a Sharp XV-Z9000----the bulb has 1100 hours on it (I view, on average, a dvd a day) and ,thus far, have had no problems with the projector.
    Question: How does the Japanese version differ from American?
    FACTOID: It recently came to my attention that the filter vent of the projector should be cleaned using a vacuum sweeper hose every 100 hours of use. OOPS!!! (Perhaps one resolution for 2004 will be to read user manuals in their entirity.)
