hi,
i powered the PJ, disconnect from ballast side, and tried to measure the voltage (coming from main board) the purple (1) has 12V DC next (2) is ground.... what you suggested that is (2,3)
if i trace the opto legs it shows me wire number ( 2,3) if i short both
it might allow me to remove ballast complete from PJ...

i will update tomorrow everything .....

thanks a lot for help

halogen bulb temperature is too high,you have to insert a 55W xenon 6000k color temperature instead of halogen lamp. Link:Porta photo album

thanks for help, currently i have 30W high power LED
which claim 2700 lumen, but it works in dark room...but not satisfied
i need 100w high power LED...but it is expensive.

just wanted to know...as you suggested 55w XENON HID is as good as original lamp ?? or i need 100W HID xenon ???

is XENON works cooler ??

thanks in advance...help appriciated

You will achieve the best results if you use your original ballast and put xenon 120 Wat. Your original ballast is compatible with the xenon-120 watt. Remark: your ballast must have the original ignition voltage between 15kV - 25kV. You can try it. If you have any problems with xenon launch you have to wind some coils as on the photo below: http://e-fotek.pl/images/22978284528942978079.jpg

Xenon is a little bit cooler than UHP

thanks
but i chk on e-bay most xenon HID is 100w for car head light
if i use insted of 120w , is it gonna work or blow ??
bcoz it's cheap lamp ..so worth to try ??

for knowledge purpose asking !! why need to wind coil around outside lamp ?

thanks
