First of all, I'm glad to see a post in this thread. We are still enjoying our Z30K. We just redid our HT wiring and added a 4k compatible HDMI run. Hoping that the new 4k DLP chip gets implemented in a FP (at a reasonable cost). In the mean time, how many others out there are still Sharp?

If I recall, there was an earlier post about trying to find a replacement battery for the glasses...
Any progress on that front?

Hi,

The glasses Sharp AN-3DG35 has 1 CR2 battery not rechargable and I think they are compatible with the Z30k (as G20 and G30).

Anyone have tested this glasses with the Sharp Z30K?

Best regards.

I've had the Z30k for a couple years now. I have about 1,500 hours on it, according to the counter. Still bright enough for my needs (mostly TV watching). However, the other day I developed a weird problem from out of the blue.

I was watching TV and didn't notice anything unusual during the first show. Then, during the second show, I noticed a couple of strange spots in the lower left corner of the screen, visible during dark scenes. At first, I assumed it might be something in the source signal, but no, it's the projector. The spots are now visible anytime the screen is dark, no matter what source I watch. Here's a photo of it during the splash screen on my Blu-ray player. (I've boosted the brightness so the problem is visible here.)



Content is still visible through the spots. It looks like some kind of glare.

When the screen is bright, I see a single dark spot:





Thinking this might be an obstruction in the light path, like dust or something, I checked the lens and blasted it with compressed air. No change. I also pulled out the lamp and took a look inside. Didn't see anything in there, and I didn't want to disassemble the projector beyond that.

Has anyone experienced this before? Any thoughts or suggestions?

Dust on the DMD, prism or possible back side of the lens.
The reason you see it in the dark is because the mirrors are off (sending the light to the dark side of the chamber) but the dust is being lit by the light. For you to see this it must be on the DMD or the prism in front of the DMD. Nothing between the lamp and the prism would show up as a light spot in the dark.

Thanks. Any idea how to get to that through this projector?

You could try and blow some compressed air in from around the lens. Other that that, you'd have to take it apart to get it off which ever surface it's on.

I have a copy of the service manual if you want it. It shows exactly how to get into the unit. Once the lid is off, you should have relatively straight forward access to some of the the areas where the dust can go.

send me your email address and I'll send you a copy.

Jason,
Do you still use your Z30K?
I thought the new JVC had pretty much taken center stage...

I took a look last night and the front of the projector around the lens seems pretty sealed up. Nowhere to shoot air inside. (Yes, I removed the glass panel in front of the lens.)

This projector has been truly wonderful. Sadly, as of this weekend, I got my first "stuck mirror" and it stuck white. What an absolute bummer. I've had the PJ for over 3 years now, bought it on the Woot deal way back when, so I'm SOL on warranty. I'm assume there is nothing I can do about this issue outside of replacing the DLP chip, which honestly, sounds like a headache, unless someone has some experience with it on this model and can point me in the right direction.

Any advice out there on what I should do? I realize it's just a single dot on a big screen, but it is rather distracting.
