Looking for used lens for Sony VPL-EX100 projector

Postby ulupoi » Thu Sep 17, 2015 1:31 pm

Hello,

We have a Sony VPL-EX100 projector in one of our buildings with a damaged projection lens. I assume that tons of buildings have this same projector. Before I buy a new lens, does anyone have a lens from a broken projector that they would like to donate to us?

Thank you!

Have you informed your Facilities Group of this? I would imagine that they would be most efficient at getting the problem resolved (including finding a used lens).

Yes, we have. I would have imagined the same thing. :-)

Assuming this was issued by FM, I"d think they would be responsible for repair/replacement. Have they dumped that back in your lap?

Did you find your lens?
Was the outer lens element burned?
I found some sources for new but not used.

Thank you very much for your reply. I found a source for new lenses, and I even found a couple used ones on eBay, but our FM Group decided to replace the projector, instead. I'm sorry for not posting an update, earlier.
