David has a Sanyo Z3 projector and a blue spot is appearing on the screen. Scott says that's a 9 year old projector and if he goes into the settings, he will see a timer setting that will tell him how many hours are on the bulb. It may just be time to replace it. Dave says that another issue may be that an LCD panel may be going out, and Scott thinks it may be the green panel. If that's the case, it's time to get a new projector.
Which one would be good? Scott says he could spend less than $3,000, but he hasn't found one that looks very good. Dave says that the Epson 5020 is less than $3,000 and they're pretty good. Scott does agree that Epson's mid-range models like the 3020 or the 5020 are fabulous.
