After the case is opened and then reassembled, there is a good chance the gasket comes off of its normal seated position. I also experienced this same situation after receiving my projector back from repair. The rubber gasket simply snaps back in position when pushed away from the lens.

Thanks for the response. My situation must also be connected to a recent repair. Did you push it back your self? I
gently touched it, but not knowing what exactly the purpose of the gasket or how fragile it is, I did not want to tear it. How forceful does it need to be pushed, and where to?

I know it seems rather delicate, but if you move it away from the center of the lens in the direction towards the outside perimeter of the lens you'll feel it just snap back into position.

Worked like a charm. Many thanks!

Well it seems to be my time with PJ issues. Just discovered, after I thought the new lamp I put in had no real brightening effect, that it is a PK-L2210UP instead of a PK-L2210U. The sight I bought it from stated it was the replacement for the RS55, and although I checked the manual to confirm, I thought the 'P' was of not consequence. However, the PK-L2210UP is 275W, and the other 285W. I'm sure they will not take it back after 7hrs of use. If anyone is interested in the 'P' lamp, will sell for 50% of what I just payed. PM me.

As reported, the optical engine in my RS55 had to be replaced, but there is a pink hue push particularly show on white materials. (i.e.: shirts...). I had the unit professionally calibrated, but was told there is a problem with the optical engine. I was out of warranty, and JVC repaired on good faith so I can't go back to them. I have since ordered a Sony 300ES, but was wondering if anyone knows if the pink push can be corrected?

That's unfortunate it. I can only think of two options:

1) Something like a Lumagen 3D mini might help as it will offer a lot more leeway and options into calibrating but it is no guarantee and they are not cheap. Is the pink showing up as a greyscale issue?

2) For the hell of it, I would ask JVC once more as the worst they can say is no. You never know, they might look into it.

Not sure about the grey scale question other than to say the guy who did the calibrating stated he did the best possible

As for JVC, the contact who originally assisted me, seems to have set my e-mail address to 'not accept'. All attempts are deemed not deliverable.

Guess I'm out of luck

After 2 years with the RS55 I have 1395 hours on the original lamp. Viewing has been mostly in Normal (low-lamp) with the occasional 3D viewing in high.

106" Da-Lite 1.1 gain
13' throw
Dark-brown walls, carpet, and couch

3D was getting pretty dim, even at iris 0, and 2D seemed OK at iris 6 (instead of 12 when the RS55 was new).

I just installed a new lamp (PK-L2210U) from AV Science and wow! Everything about the image is much more "full." It really does seem like getting a new projector. Transformers: Age of Extinction in 2D looks dynamite. It looked good a few days ago on the old lamp, but now it's even more dynamic in bright or dark scenes. The outdoor scenes in the sun at Marky Mark's farm were a revelation. The sunlight on them is so much more realistic, and it shows just how dim the old lamp had become.

Over the last few months, I was on a User 1 setting by eye, with a gamma of 2.0 to bring out shadow detail that THX was crushing. With the new lamp, THX looks like a better combo of blacker blacks with "enough" detail. I know, a calibration would do wonders, and I'm finally looking into it.

Because I am another upgrade-insane AVS'er, I'm also testing the friends and family network to see if anyone wants to buy an RS55 with a new lamp so I can get the RS4910

In any case, the moral of the story is that a new lamp can do wonders.

QUESTION: I'm almost out of the 2-year warranty on this refurbished RS55, and there is a fair amount of dust visible inside the back-right vent. Has anyone ever sent their unit voluntarily (!) to Mendtronix for a cleaning? I know it's not covered, but it would be nice to get a clean unit after 2 years of dust intake. I clean the removable screen every 2 months.

Thanks to everyone else on this forum who contributed their experiences and observations!

I found the brightness on new lamp actually made the picture just a bit washed out looking. However it did not take much time after breaking in the new lamp that the picture looked better than ever. Regarding shipping the projector to get it cleaned...Hell No. Between the abuse in shipping and the chance you take that some uncaring tech abuses your baby, it's not worth it. Don't fix what's not broken...just my two cents. By the way, I use a vacuum on all the vents to clean from the outside, and it only required attention after one year of use. I also no not touch the lens at all.

I would wait until the fall, there is not some day/night difference between the RS55 and the 4910, i've had both projectors. e-shift 1 is better imo.

I wouldn't send it to Mendtronix if you can avoid it, some members recently had issues with damage during shipping, imo, it's not worth it unless you absolutely have to send it in.

Thanks Zombie. I've greatly appreciated your projector shootouts and opinions over the years.

Winter Soldier 3D arrives in the mail today, so I'm going to sit back and enjoy the RS55, which looks better than ever with the new lamp.

that is a great movie! I liked it much better than the first Captain America.

when you are done watching it, look up on youtube 'Winter Soldier - how it should have ended' for a good laugh.

I hope your unit is still under warranty. I had a vertical lines problem viewing 2D material, and it ended up being a faulty optical engine. Although I was past the warrant period, JVC was convinced to give me a replacement against 'good will', and I paid for the install. The problem was the unit they gave me had an issue with pink push which I could not get rid of. On a positive note, it gave me the excuse to buy a Sony 300ES 4K pj.

HDMI 1 and 2 No Input

Hello,

Wonder if someone might know what is going on with my DLA x70r. I have 400+ hours on the projector with no issues.....as of yesterday it it not identifying any HDMI inputs (1 or 2). Just shows 'No Input'.
I have tried different sources (bluray\apple tv) with different length HDMI cables with no success...........yet they work fine if plugged into my Sony LCD.

Should I try a factory reset? Could it be a blown HDMI circuit?

thanks in advance!

I guess you've tried a complete power down with unplugging the unit for several minutes. If so, I think a factory receipt may be in order. Best of luck.
