I would LOVE that, Dotun. I *think* my problems all started when I saved an RGB signal into an Svideo signal. That seems to have hosed up important values somewhere. But I can't figure out what values are wrong. If I could just put the projector into a "known reasonably good" state, so it would quit overloading and shuttind down, that would be a huge improvement. But I think I've adjusted all the important settings: all the ref white balance settings, etc. If I knew what values were likely to cause these problems, I could go normalize them. But there must be more than 100 values lurking around in various menus, and I have no idea which ones are critical.
I'm not 100% certain the erroneous save caused all my problems. When I first got the box, the G2's seemed way off. The G and B were intensely bright (maybe not inappropriately so, not sure) and the R was much dimmer. I was using RGBHV from a laptop to test it, and I started doing Guy's G2 procedure. I don't remember it shutting itself down much (if at all) then. But then Doug said I should use VIDEO instead of RGB, and I got an Svideo cable, and I figured I should reuse the work I'd done on the RGB settings in the new Svideo signal, and... poof. And a month later I'm still trying to get it working.
What in God's name could have gotten messed up in that save operation that would be causing me all this grief!?!???
Doug, Dotun says he can send me the eprom file from his XG. Would that work to get me back in a working state, assuming Dotun's XG is working?
Doug: I did check the reference G2's once long ago, when I had no clue what I was doing. I'm 99% sure it was OK. However it's possible I did that with the RGB. Maybe I'd better go back and check that.
Let's see, that procedure is on 10-24, right? All-white, or gray-scale, or cross-hatch on the screen, S7701 to TEST, all the rest (WB, bright, etc) set as specified on 10-24, then check the RGB G2's for 2.5?
I have a 6051 remote that came with my old PG9 Xtra. Curt said it was basically identical except it didn't have one multi-PJ button. Dotun has the only XG remote that came with our set of 5.
"If it goes to PAL" ... What do you mean I don't have the video signal entered? NTSC3.53 is signal #1. Not 100% sure I've set it as the DEFAULT for the video block -- is that what you mean I should do? Where are you referring to input 1/2/3 for RGB/Video/Svideo? I don't see any mention of that in the signal entry section.
Umm, switch level one. What's that?
