Hi Tim. When you have some time, Could you please show us a sketch how to change the projector UV protector of the machines 1.1. My machine is requiring some time.
Ok no problem. But be careful. This method is not tested for long time. I really expect DLP chip to die much much faster. Anywhere between 100-2000 hours! Maybe less or more.
You need to replace first glass (UV filter) on the lamp assembly with regular glass. This replacement glass should have size of 23.5-24.2 mm square with 2 mm thickness. Likely it should be temperature resistant due to extreme level of heat coming from lamp. Running without glass on lamp will likely break second protective glass on projector housing very soon!
You need to replace this UV filter on front of lamp housing:
In case you will not cover the lamp with glass this piece on projector will crack in few weeks or even days.
Also I noticed that this is unlikely UV filter as I thought earlier. It's likely just a barrier glass to prevent extra heat from going into housing
