We finally got around to putting the new DLP light in our TV the other night and I’m please to let you know that that horrible chain saw buzzing noise is gone!
The new light does make some sound but it’s not grating or so loud that you have to keep turning the TV up louder and louder to drown out the sound of the fans jarring motor.
I’m so happy it’s fixed!
Since the old light was still working, although noisily, we’ve decided to keep it. Remember I said in my last post about our TV that when the first light went out it went out without any notice … well if it happens again (in two years or more please) with this new light at least we’ll have a back up until we can replace the burned out light.
What really kills me about these DLP’s other than having to replace a part every two years or so is that you can only get them at a few places. I really think that the stores that sell DLP TV’s should keep some replacement lights in stock. The first time we needed to replace the light for the TV we had to wait a week and this time I ordered the light on a Friday- I was told it was their last one in stock – and since the place of business is way over on the other side of the city (an hours drive) we didn’t pick it up until Tuesday.
