Sadly in my attempt to help fellow owners and maybe other projector owners when proven an alternative to this elusive lamp for the elmo, but to do this I needed at least a spent
24v 200w ESC Lamp to experiment with, after posting on all the current forums NOT ONE PERSON contacted me, I even offered to pay the postage to them to send the lamp. Now looking at Paul's web page he sold double figures of these, so I beg the question, why have all these people bought a lamp if they didn't need it ?, and if they did what happened to
the spent lamp ?, it must have been thrown. My idea, was to reuse the reflector, and re lamp this with a lamp currently available for less than half the price of this lamp, but much brighter. If this worked and it would not take much R/D to find out, the idea could be used on any projector with this kind of lamp reflector with little tweaking. I think some people
are quick to distrust a fellow members, thinking he's out to make a fast buck, it gets a bit of a "clique". It's odd how fate works, but now like you I have only the lamp in my standard
GS when that goes, I'm stuffed, with Paul doing a stretch for 16 months ( could be out by august ) his source must be out there somewhere, perhaps an ex Derran employee could help.
