You could return it and get the 5040 that comes out in a couple weeks. With that one it has another mode between ECO and Normal that is every bit as bright as high lamp mode on the 5030 but apparently is much quieter. I also have the 5030 and when I hung it on the ceiling it definitely added noise. It's not really bothersome when I'm watching an action movie but fan noise will be a bigger priority with my next projector and the new Epson's in Medium mode supposedly check that box. I'd highly consider that vs. spending the next three years watching a darker picture or noticing the fan noise in high lamp mode during quieter scenes.

If you go down that thread rabbit hole you willbfind some instructions on opening the projector and reseating lenses. I tried it, it was hard and didn't fix it, but maybe you will have better luck.

Worked for me. had to redo it every 6 months or so due to thermal cycling. Today opened it up again to reseat and ended up damaging an LCD ribbon due to over cycling / bending. also some of the clips on the board that clamps the ribbon cables from the LCD to the main board loosened and fell off.

Long story short now looking at a used 5030 to replace the 3010. No regrets though. The lens reseat worked for years.

Hello, I am hoping someone can help me. I have had the 5030UB for awhile now, and it has served me well.

Right in the middle of a movie today, suddenly these little squares showed up all over the screen in a grid pattern. Each square is made of red, green, blue dots. See photo.

It does it even without the receiver on, and I checked the cables. I think it is the projector.

What can I do about this? I'm going to go dig up my paperwork before I contact Epson, but was hoping there was something I could do on my end?

Thanks for any advice.

Unfortunately, it's a bad omen. You can try to power the unit down completely by removing the power cable and reseting all options to default. Them try the test screens for panel alignment to see if the problems exist there. If they do, your LCDS or LCD controller are bad.

Actually removing the power cable and plugging back in fixed it! I called Epson, and that was also their advice. He says a 'false error' occurs occasionally, and it has something to do with the screen door effect in the lens. I pushed for a more technical explanation but didn't get one. He made it sound like this is somewhat common, and might happen once or twice over the lifetime of the projector.

I'll post back if I see it again.

Overall I found the customer support helpful and polite.

That's awesome news. Glad you're out of the woods on that one. They do have great customer service.

Has anyone found any easy home fixes for a loud iris? I got a new unit recently due to lamp flicker in my old one. The iris on this one is quieter than my old one. I'm not sure if it's the fact that it's a different unit or that I did something different/better when installing it. That made me think maybe there is a way to make it even quieter. Like maybe by putting rubber somewhere to avoid vibration or something. Just thought I'd see. Any ideas? Thanks?

My 5030 has developed a semi-bright red blob all of the sudden. It's by the left edge of the picture, about halfway up, about the size of 3 quarters (coins) on my 100" screen, and only visible on darker content. I see it when that area is maybe IRE 40 and down to black. It's fairly distracting. Since it only shows on dark content I can't get a good picture of it though.

Does anybody know what it might be?

Dust blob on one of the LCD panels. Mine has one too although it's not as visible as yours. Only shows up when the image is mostly black.

Well, while I'd prefer to get a flawless unit, Epson's great customer service strikes again. I'm getting a warranty replacement sent to me early next week. I opted for the credit card hold so that I can keep my current unit until then.

The rep had me perform a few trouble-shooting steps; clean the lens, unplug all cables, turn on with no HDMI cable plugged in. As expected nothing worked. He didn't tell me what the issue might be but I also didn't ask.

The replacement will be my 3rd unit. My first one developed flickering after about 500 hours.

Adjusting settings according to personal preference is not calibration.

Mine is so minor that I can't decide if I want to try to get a replacement or not. I've got until next April anyway.

If it doesn't bother you and you're otherwise happy with the unit, I would also consider doing nothing. My current unit that I'll be returning next week is quieter than my first one. In addition it's almost 100% accurate out of the box in THX mode whereas my first unit required quite a bit of adjustment. It does pain me to send it back but the red blob is just too visible.

Just picked up a 5030UB for $1100. The salesman said it was much better than 2400 and was only $100 more on sale.

This is my first projector and I have quite a bit to say about it.

First, my old tv: LCD (not LED) from 2006. I am moving and this was a really old set with terrible quality so I finally decided to upgrade.

I am currently projecting 5030ub on a yellow wall with small room so only ~50" display.

I calibrated the unit with THX mode, low interpolation, detail enhancement at 3. Did some panel adjustments as my blue was a bit high, everything else is fine.

The quality is out of this world. Better than my local cinema. I can't imagine how it will look on a proper screen and at 100".

The unit is SUPER quiet. I can't even hear the fan running, I don't know how people can hear it at all. I even put my ear all the way to the projector and it's whisper quiet.


SUPER happy with the projector. Glad I spent an extra $100 instead of 2400.

Definetly a dust blob on the red lcd panel. I had 2 on the green Lcd panel and since my projector was out of warranty I went ahead and opened the projector and
blew the dust out with compressed air. If you ever want to try this and are handy with tools all you will need is a Phillips screwdriver and some patience. This guy has
a cool teardown of the 6030ub Projector (which is basically a 5030ub in black).
