My new Elmo HPL3600 is blowing out lamps immediately.
Problem: You purchased an Elmo HPL3600 and within a few
months it started to blow out lamps the minute it is turned on.
Solution: Contact Elmo at 800-947-3566. This is a known
defect with the rectifier in this model. Elmo should replace the
projector or repair it at no charge and supply at least one new
lamp. The rectifier is being replaced with a time tested part
that was used in all previous Elmo models.
