I still don't understand how dust gets into the optical block if Pana say its sealed.

Might take some photo's and post them up later.


Any others with this issue?

I had the same problem. Put it in the car to take it to the panasonic repairer and when I got there it was gone. The repairer reckons the movement in the car probably shook the dust spot of. he still gave it a clean though.

Dynamic Iris? It is set to off. Turning it on doesn't seem to make a difference.

True, i was going to take my projector down and just flip it over and see if i can get it to fall off. Its currently on a ceiling mount so will see how that goes. If not then off to the repair center.

I had a look into the lens and can see many dust spots in the optical block so this concerns me and may just have it serviced just in case.

Setting it to Normal mode seems to have stopped the flickering. Strange because I tried that earlier today and it still flickered on Normal mode. Guess I'll keep it on here for a week then change it back to Eco to see if it fixes the problem.

Better late than never I guess...

Update 2:

The check date is 11/20/2013..hmmm void after 6 months so better get a move on and deposit it...

Yes, when I had mine turned ON, it created a flicker that was noticeable on bright backgrounds like whites, blues, etc. Turning it OFF got rid of that flicker. I actually like it more with it off.

I have mine in Normal all the time since I don't use the projector more than once or twice a week. Glad to see that it stopped the flicker. Would be interested to see if it stops after you go back to Eco mode in a week or so.

I have read about this before what happened the arc on the filament burnt a spike or dent into it. If you put it on dynamic with fan on normal for a movie than you will burn it off. 3D time

I have not used 3D at all, and as I said in an earlier post Dynamic Iris is off. Do you have any links as to where you found this information? I'd love to read more about it!

I've skimmed that past couple pages of this thread and while some are having issues, are you guys generally happy with this projector? Would you buy it again if you could do it all over?

I'm looking to upgrade from an Epson 8350 which has been great and I've had no problems with. I really like the idea of this projector for its price (with the current rebate), lens memory (also going to 2.35:1 screen), and looking forward to giving 3D a try. Thanks in advance!

It was in this thread somewhere around the first 1/3 of it I think people were talking about the issue with the AE-4000 and were asking owners if it happened with the 8000. Then someone said what was causing it and the solution. If you continuously use the same setting then your lamp will develop this from what I remember. Just Google projector lamp flicker. Sorry I did not mark what thread I read it in but I think all the projectors suffer from it at some degree.

I guess I am one of the luckily ones I have not had any problems. Of course I did a lot of research and also I am not looking for so called problems i.e. projecting a white image to see it the entire 125" wide screen has uniformity issues. Why would you do that? Also remember that happy folks usually do not post just folks with issues. Thousands of units have been sold so if it were a piece of crap you would see a lot more complaining. My friend has an Epson 8350 and he is jealous of my projector. (his wife told my wife he would not admit to me cool.gif )

I would buy the 8000 again in a heartbeat. However, I would buy it from an authorized dealer instead of Amazon. Since Amazon isn't an authorized dealer for this pj, you can't get the rebate (I found this out the hard way). There are 5 authorized dealers according to Panasonic. Projector People, Projector Point, Visual Apex, AGI and B&H. So pick your favorite out of those 5 and you can't go wrong.

Thanks for the feedback cw5billwade and GWCR. I just pulled the trigger from an authorized dealer wink.gif

Looks like Panasonic brand 3D glasses (TY-ER3D4MU) are best priced at Amazon currently for $53. Are there other compatible glasses that are cheaper and/or a better purchase?

We were very impressed with the PJ last night.
While watching TMNT (2007 animated) on blu ray (seen it a half dozen times already) there were countless moments where something in the image looked amazing. Sometimes only seconds apart.
I remember thinking what would I say, would you believe me if I said you could see the pile fuzz on Aprils wool shirt or the reptilian/frog like skin on the top of the Turtles hands, the realistic layering in their shells and chest pates, the strikingly horse hair like structure of Splinters wrist hair, the depth of the chain mail, etc.etc.
The detail was so nice I caught two different parts of the film where they had missed the final render inside a turtles mouth.

So nice to finally have it this good.


And...NFS on the PS4 is looking good at the same setting, bonus!

Too bad a guy didn't have more money laying around...

So which 3D glasses is everyone using? Any noticeable difference with the newest Panny glasses and the Ps3 glasses? Which model Panny glasses did people get with their rebate?

I just received mine and they were the TY-EW3D3M...much nicer/lighter than the original TY-EW3D2MA from our HDTV. Haven't had a chance to try them out yet, though

4MU is not the right glasses they are RF for 2012 or newer TVs you need 3MU which is IR for this projector and 2011 and prior TVs. 2MU and 1 MU will also work.

My question, is will the Panny do good at this size (or as this entirely too large)? Will it be bright enough to look good, and will it support 3D at this size?

If not, is there another projector under $4k that would work?

I'm willing to pair something w/ the Lumagen Mini 3d if needed.

The 8000 has proven itself in our home.
A lot will depend on how far you mount it from the screen.

I'm looking to place it 16' 5" - 16' 10" from the screen. It should be 14fL at that point.

Do you have a screen that large? Also, in your opinion, will that be bright enough for my application?

Hello,

 

in post #3027 I placed some pics about the poor picture sharpness of PTAT 6000 compare to my very old PTAE-2000. I send it to panasonic service and got it back now.

 

The definition and convergence is now proved and nothing is relaced or changed. The letters from panasonic service says my beamer is state of art for this model. Wow.:(

 

Ok, the PTAT 6000 projects the pictures better like SD. But in my case this is now not a really Full-HD picture. May be 720p or something else. My old PTAE 2000 or my 4000 has a real Full-HD picture. What a bad joke - yeah my 6000 is state of art.:eek:

 

I will use the beamer now only for 3D. But for good 2D picture quality I take my 10 year old 2000er or the 4000 (but first I have to need a lamp replacement).

 

I am at first time heavy frustrated, about panasonic service and the product.

 

In future, I will never buy a new Flat-Screen, Blu-ray Player and in special no beamer from Panasonic.:(

 

If somebody is interested I can post some pics about the absolutly bad picture definition of PTAT 6000 compare to PTAE2000/4000.

 

I hope in future the competitors will do it better for the next generation beamers.

 

1. JVC needs much more light power

2. Epson needs a complete motorized optic.

3. Sony needs a lower price

I got this projector back in mid November. Absolutely no issues/regrets so far and would buy again. I had the 8350 for about a week before I returned it and ordered this projector instead. The upgrade in picture quality is easily noticeable. The pixel density is better; I felt that the 8350 looked somewhat Screen Door'ish to me. The only thing I sorta liked better on the 8350 was the lens shift control. The PT-8000 uses a weird joy stick. I use the 8000 in a room with the lights on at night usually and the picture quality is great even with the lights on. Using the Disney WoW blu ray made a big difference though. Game Mode is good if you are into that as well. I play sports games without any input lag issues. (although I think the 8350 is still better in the category of input lag).

So does Disney Wow make that much of a difference and easy enough for an idiot like me? I really am pleased with D-cinema out of all the settings for my taste.

Disney WoW made a big difference for me, and it couldn't be easier to use. I owned the projector for about 2-3 months before I even bought the WoW DVD. I mostly just changed the Brightness and Contrast settings on the projector (The color seemed good enough out of the box for me - and it's tough to notice a difference between +/-1 in either direction with color unlike brightness/contrast.It also comes with a really good A/V sync calibrator.

 

I'm assuming you watch in a light controlled environment because I have always though D-Cinema was too dark for me. Before calibrating, I just used Normal for low light and Dynamic for lights on and Rec 709 for when the lights were off.

Total light control I watch 2D in D-cinema with fan on eco and 3D in Normal fan on normal.

I've got a question...

Based on the projector central screen calculator, I can use this pj w/ a 158" screen at 2.35:1 from 16'5" back at max zoom (2x). Doing so will yield 14-15fL.

My question, is would I actually be able to put this projector closer to the screen in 2.35:1 at max zoom being that the top & bottom black bars (that show up on all 2.35:1 movies) would be projected off the top & the bottom of the screen?

Or does the projector central calculator actually account for that?

My thinking, is that I might get a couple more fL if I can in fact move it closer.

I don't know if this was asked before but here it is. I am currently using an AE2000 and from day one i am very happy with it. I have a 135" 16:9 motorized screen and I also have a 120" width motorized roller shade with black masking material that I installed on top of my main screen. I use the motorized roller shade for masking the top portion only when watching cinemascope and shift the lens vertically. I do not need to mask the bottom part because my wall is painted with non-reflective black paint. When I watch 4:3 movies I draw the black non-reflective drapes on both sides. By doing this, i do not have to adjust the focus when changing screen sizes. If I upgrade to the AE8000, is it capable of setting up the vertical only lens shift memory?
