Replacements for Panasonic PT LB-60NU Projectors?

Our church has three Panasonic PT LB-60NU 3000 lumens projectors ceiling mounted. They were purchased/installed in 2003, and two have died completely after fading blue, while the third is fading blue. They are used for about 3 hours each Sunday.

They are mounted about 10-12 feet from the white walls they are projecting on, and they are used with all the lights (fluorescent) in the sanctuary on. The images are about 6-7 feet wide and 4-5 feet tall. They are mounted about 1 1/2 feet from the ceiling by a three-armed swivel mounting kit hanging below a 1" or 1 1/2" diameter PVC tube.

We are looking to buy three reasonably priced replacements around $400-$500 each if possible (and presumably mounts if our current ones won't work for the new projectors).

What would you recommend? Do such projectors exist? Thanks in advance.
