Here is the response i got from Dave about the brown stuff.


The brown stuff is a color dye that is used in the arc tube. It helps for me to know how long the bulb was burned for warranty purposes.. After about 100 hrs it burns off.

They have been burned for longer than 100 hours but I will be happy to let them burn longer and see what happens, My only problem is that if it doesnt clear away my time frame for my warranty will be over,

Shoot dave an E-mail letting him know your concern. He is not that much of a sticler where he would say they are 31 days old go away. He is a pretty good guy. Plus i am pretty tight with him and a little more pull then other retailers. We won't leave you with bad bulbs
