I believe there IS one option that may work, it would still be wasteful but not as much as buying teh entire projector, and that would be to find a repair shop (I know there aren't many left these days) that support (@$h-yo projectors and ask them if it's possible to just order the diode block, it would still cost a few $100 but I bet it be at least $300-500 rather then the entire projector.
There are two authorized KasEO parts distributors in the USA. One of those two provides extensive enough on-line functionality to allow you to narrow down individual part numbers for practically everything inside the projector, including the laser diode array (which they have some funky three-letter acronym for).
Anyway, fast forward to actually pricing the part, and it was above $750 for the array from an A130 on its own. In other words, no big savings.
