I have a 5030ube that's been going strong for a little over a year. Recently, it's been shutting off randomly. It seems to be after a couple hours of use. The lights go through the normal flashing, blue cycle they do if I were to turn it off. It feels like an auto off power down as it cycles off and closes the lens cap. It will immediately power back on and works fine. I've turned off the auto-off in the menu but it still persists. Any ideas for what is going on?

Only thing I can think of (other than it being broken) is to check/clean the filter. Maybe over heating? Otherwise if it's still under warranty (which it should be from what you said), I'd call Epson. Warranty service is fantastic. I wouldn't hesitate to call them.

Looks like it should give you some indication of over heating though,

Thanks, but I was looking for rechargeable 3D glasses that are comfortable.
I found rechargeable Samsung 3D glasses on amazon ... is there a better option?: http://www.amazon.ca/Samsung-Electro...d+rechargeable

Is this still a good purchase for a 2.5 year old 1080p projector? Or are you better looking at something newer like the Sony VPL HW65ES?

These are excellent and very comfortable:

I bought the same glasses from Consignia: http://www.consignia.ca/vip-3d-recha...020ube-6030ub/

but the Curt Palme price is cheaper and offers deals for multiple pairs. I have two pairs and they work great.

Hey all,
I was digging through the threat back on pages 119 to about 126-130 or so and found out this projector has a firmware update. I got excited at first because I thought maybe it would fix/enhance the softening when in fast mode. However, after going through several more pages and replies, it appears it only deals with super resolution and it doesn't do anything with fast mode.

So, my question is firmware v111 still the latest? Or has something happened since? I'll probably still do the update, but I was really hoping for something to address the fast mode softness. Still looks pretty good in fast mode, but I could tell a difference when looking at white text and also when I hooked me ps4 up to a lcd tv. PS4 games looked a bit better on the LCD tv than in fast mode on my projector.

Thanks,
Doug

Thanks for the update! I'll go ahead an update even though it wasn't what I was hoping for. I can at least check out the super resolution stuff for movies and such. Its not like the image in fast mode is that bad anyway... just noticeable with certain things.

Thanks,
Doug

I think 5030UB at $1999 is a fantastic buy. The HW65 is awesome, but it's twice the price at $3999.

I bought mine less than 6 months ago for a good price in Australia and I am extremely happy with it. I use it in a white living room with a pull down screen, mostly at night, but I have good blinds for the occasional daytime viewing. I also play some PS3 and PC games on it occasionally.

To be completely honest I did have some uniformity issues with focus, I get some pixel "blurring" on the outer parts of the screen but really only when I'm looking at individual bright pixels on HD test patterns, I do not notice it on any kind of image, including movies and games, so while it did disturb me for a while after discovering the "issue", (about a month after I got the projector when I actually tried to do some "calibration" on my own), I managed to get over it mainly by convincing myself that I bought the projector to watch movies and play games, not look at how sharp pixels are on HD test screens, it doesn't bother me anymore.

I've also read since then that imperfect screen wide uniformity of focus and/or color is not uncommon on most if not all but the most expensive LCD projectors.

Looks like I've got a minor dust blob on my 5030. It's only visible on a completely black screen. And only really easily visible with the iris off. So I have no intent to exchange it under warranty right now. Interestingly this was a warranty exchange unit and I only have 100-200 hrs on it right now.

I have to think it was there when I got it (and I just hadn't noticed since it's very hard to see with the iris engaged) or something was in the projector already that got on the panel. The room it's in is very low dust.

For those that have had dust blob problems, do they generally stay the same or get worse??

Just wondering if I'll have a problem eventually or maybe it'll just stay like it is and not be an issue.

^ I have the same. Just try not to look at it .

Individual dust blobs don't usually get worse. It might even clear itself eventually, but then again you might get more over time.

If it were much worse I'd open up the PJ and try cleaning, but I was hoping someone else would do that first and post details.

New owner getting ready for the install.

I've been following this thread for a few weeks but have seen no mention of the current recommended settings. Coming from a 6500UB in a dark room, 120" 1.1 gain, with the PJ at 13 ft. Where/what are the recommended settings?

THX mode. Unless you're measuring, there's no point in straying away from that since you won't know if you're getting more or less accuracy.

In addition there's Super Resolution which is personal preference

Thanks for the reply. Yea that's my plan, ignore it. I swapped to this one because the original had convergence issues (red was gradually drifting further and further out). This one is great though.

Yes I found a write up somewhere on this board that showed someone taking an older Epson apart and cleaning it. This is it I think,

I'm pretty sure 11' is the minimum projector lens to screen distance for 110" diagonal. At 10' you're limited to something closer to 100" -- maybe 106" or so.

I had bought an Epson 2045 from Best Buy. 1st projector, but that lasted 2 weeks until I wanted to upgrade lol.
Bought a 5030b and installed it today. You guys were right, didn't have enough throw distance @ 10ft for a 110" screen.
Moved it behind my ceiling fan and now it looks beautiful.
What a difference from the 2045. The colors look better and way more defined.

Does anyone have calibrated settings, or a link, for dark viewing and daylight viewing?

It's close out of the box in TXH mode. Try that first in a dark room, and I think you'll really like it. Get a basic calibration disk, like Disney's WOW, and do it yourself.

I will buying this PJ this weekend. I don't have a 3d blu-ray player, I have a media streamer that will do Blu-ray 3D SBS. Can someone please tell me if I can send "Full" SBS video files, or if the 5030ub will only do "Half " SBS? I have been scouring the net and haven't found a definitive answer to this. Thanks for your help. Also, how does the 2d-3d conversion look?

I am a brand new owner of this Epson projector, as of last night. I was wondering if anyone had noticed a problem I have noticed, in that the projector is in tolerant of drops in voltage, even from using a connector to join cables. My projector gives a great picture as long as I use a single HDMI cable from my AVR to the back of my projector. However if I place a 90? connector, to better place the cable, the screen says "no signal detected" This tells me that the Epson projector cannot tolerate the slightest reduction in voltage, even from a single connector. Has anyone else noticed this? I suppose I will have to buy an amplifier now

Conventional wisdom is that you want to avoid as many connections as you can. I don't know if it's voltage, per se,

Personally, I have a 35' redmere going from my AVR, through a scoop, up the wall, through the ceiling, to a hdmi plate. With a 18" cable (maybe 12") from there to the PJ

How long is your cable? Are you pushing the HDMI limit already? Maybe an active cable like my redmere would help?

I guess you could use that as a reason to buy a new amp, or you could get something like this, a 25' HDMI cable with one end a 90:

Thanks so much. It is only the HDMI cable that needs to be amplified. My 50 foot cable would be very difficult to replace, so I will have to live with it. I have ordered an HDMI amplifier to see if that will help, if not, then I will live with it.
