Default DIY Projector in India - Under Rs.10k

This is made in India.Few of the parts have been got from USA.

LCD Panel : Sharp VGA Panel ( from USA) - Cost Rs. 7k
Metalhalide : Osram 400w with Pesolite ballast - Cost Rs.2k
Fresnel and Focussing lamp ( from USA)

Screen : made from Flexy - Cost Rs.200
Exhaust fans : 5` - 2 in number - Rs 400

Screen size : 3 ft by 4ft. Diagonal - 5 ft.

Looking for upgradation : Will replace the LCD panel with 15 in LCD monitor costing around Rs. 3-4 k.That would increase the resolution ,contrast and bring down the cost.

You could try using a manual voltage stabaliser to raise the voltage to the desired rating which is around 250v.Donot overdo who knows if it blasts off.But his does work. Secondly MHs lamps has the tendency to impart this tint for around 200 hrs.Afterwards it would be just fine. Enjoy onnnnnnnnnnnn.

PLease suggest what type of stepdown converter would be best to work it out in indian voltage. Please provide the name and location where it would be available. I have tried with 110 V -1000 W converter and it won't work.
