Hi folks! I'm a new comer here. This is my first question. I got a Sanyo PLC-700M LCD Projector whose lamp is on its last leg (Lamp Part # 610-259-5291) A new lamp cost over $600. There is no way I'm going to pay that. Is there any way a modification can be made to install a different lamp? The lamp assembly looks quite simple to me. A lamp in a ceramic socket placed inside a concave mirror housed in a metal box. I gather when you buy a new unit you get the whole assembly rathere than just the bulb alone. Rather a waste I would say. Has anybody ever tried a mod. on this? I would like to hear from some techies. I'm a techie myself. (I have the service manual for this unit) Thanks in advance. Herb N.
