I am having 3d connectivity issues with my viewsonic pjd6543w projector
I'm not sure what's going on. I've successfully watched 3d movies before on it. I'm using a sony bluray 3d player with a high speed hdmi cable. As mentioned it worked before on this very projector. However after I connected a pc via composite video awhile back I haven't been able to get the 3d working again with the bluray player (separate physical player - I mention the pc because that was used ok and then i tried to go back to the bluray 3d player and nothing - it may be a coincedence).
What is unusual is that in the menu bar on the bottom of the menu screen it says "dvi-d" while the hdmi signal is output from the bluray player. Though I've confirmed multiple times that the menu status clearly shows "hdmi" is the active source. What's stranger still is that the screen goes black after the startup splash screen starts.
I have confirmed that the bluray player and the hdmi cable are in good working order. I have a sony playstation 3d monitor that works perfectly with the bluray player and hdmi cable and my official copy of captain america civil war 3d that im currently using as my test disc.
The stranger thing is that i can use the projector in 2d but only when i connect to it via a 4 way hdmi switch. It claims to be 3d compatible (the switch) but I get a "the display is not 3d compatible" message even though my input and ouptut cables to and from the switch are 1.4 hdmi cables. When I switch back to straight from bluray player to projector with the confirmed configuration that worked on the pstv it does the same thing of going black after the startup screen is shown.
I do have a ps3 but i can't get it to display directly. I have to go through the 4 port switch but that leads to 2d only display.
I'm really not sure what to do. Clearly the sony (non ps3) bluray player works in 3d as shown by my successful test on the pstv monitor. It should just work again when plugged in with that cable directly to the projector.
Am I missing something terribly obvious? I think my methodology is ok here as far as eliminating weak links. And clearly the projector works since I can watch in 2d via work arounds or via analog.
Thank you for your assistance. (fyi the projector is viewsonic pdj6543w and was bought second hand but only has 650 hours on the lamp - rated for 4000 max i think).
