I will take a closer look tonight during football. I would assume a 30 minute warmup would be more than enough. I have 11 months left on the warranty so, I have a bit of time.

I don't see what you see and neither does anyone else. We see the output of your camera - compressed - on displays that for all you know could be upside down and have a neon green tint.

My point is that screenshots are 100% useless for anything but showing very obvious defects. The feet are a nice touch though.

Adjusting settings according to personal preference is not calibration.

What feet? I don't see any feet.

Exactly.

Raise the black level on the display that you're viewing the pictures on and you'll be able to count all ten toes.

Can I make the picture smaller?

Does the 5030 have a setting to make the picture smaller?

I tried a 140in projection size last night, and with 1.85:1 or 2.39:1 content like "The martian" it looks incredible, but pop in something that uses the full 16:9 screen and it looks gigantic, almost unbearable. I am projecting on the wall for now while I determine my comfortable screen size and would like to say 140, but be able to make it smaller for 16:19 content. Something like 120 or 110 is more pleasant at my viewing distance of 12ft or so.

Can this be done outside the projector? by a processor or receiver?

I don't understand what you mean.. There is a zoom on the top of the projector. If you mean a way to do it with a remote control - then no.

For anyone that has done a warranty service/swap-out with Epson and received a refurbished projector (6030UB in my case); Is the bulb that comes with it brand new?

I am still awaiting the refurbished projector to arrive and the defective unit (after nearly 3 years of heavy usage) finally gave up on me I'm afraid. I had just changed the bulb less than 500hrs ago though, and that is what makes me curious as to what I can expect from the bulb in the refurbs...

Many thanks for any info!

My understanding is it can be a lamp with up to 500 hours. When I did the swap, they sent one with a brand new lamp though.

Does anyone have any advice on where to sell my used 5030? Despite the hasstle of running new HDMI cables and replacing my Lumagen, etc, I'm really tempted by the 5040 Thanks in advance!

Epson 5030ub Audio not in Sync?

Anyone else here experience the audio not being in sync? I tried a few movies and I can notice that the audio is not in sync , my last projector was Epson 8100 and had no issues with audio not being in sync, but this projector bought new last week and I notice that the sound is not in sync with the lips movement, is there a fix to this? any advice would be great thanks. its slightly off not extreme but its there and I notice it, so it does bug me.

There's about 130ms of lag if you have FI enabled. Either turn FI and maybe super resolution off or correct it with your AVR.

This is pretty common. Most audio receivers and many source components (e.g. BD players) have an option for adding a small delay to fix it. For example, on my Onkyo receiver it's called A/V Sync.

Adjusting settings according to personal preference is not calibration.

So I should turn frame interpolation off to see if that solves the problem?

On my Harmon kardon receiver I tried the a/v sync from 0-80 and still nothing improved

Tried both looks a bit better but still not perfect
Is there other projectors with equivalent picture quality with no audio sync delay?

Almost all digital displays have some lag. There is a lot of consternation about it on these forums, particularly with gamers. Read the last section on this page,

http://www.projectorcentral.com/epso...ge=Performance

The only way to fix it 100% is to use an audio delay setting either in the AVR or maybe your player/streamer/etc... Some projectors are a bit better than the 5030.

I missed this post a bit ago. That's odd that you can't get there with the AVR. It should have changed one way or the other (gotten better or worse depending on which way it's off). For the lag I'm talking about the video will always be behind the sound. If the video is ahead of the sound, then something else is wrong.

After 3.5 days, I’m just over half way through this thread. I’ve read several times now about the SDE issue with closer viewing on the 5030. So I thought I’d go straight to my Q and ask the actual users here: Is it safe to assume that at 1:1 (screen size : main viewing distance - ie. 106”:106”, 120”:120”, etc.), SDE will be visible? At what ratio does it become visibly undetectable, 1:1.05, 1.1, etc.? TIA, -J

I sit about 11 feet from a 92" screen and never see any SDE.

When I stand 3-6 feet from the screen I don't see any SDE effect as much as I see the subtle grain of the glass fiber matte white material of the screen.

Hey guys got a question. I've had my Epson 5030UB since November of 2014. I have it in my dedicated basement room fully light controlled. I watch everything on eco, Movies at cinema and sports in living room modes. I just checked my lamp hours and I'm sitting at 970. I don't know if it's my imagination or if I'm starting to notice my image dimming. Bright scenes seem fine but less bright scenes are seeming to look a bit dim. So when I purchased the PJ I did receive a replacement bulb from Epson for free. Now I'm wondering if you can swap between bulbs or once a bulb is out should it stay out? What I mean is can I pop in my new bulb to see how big of a difference there is? Then if it's not huge put the old one back in and the new one back In it's box? I figure with the amount of watching I can get hopefully close to another 2 years out of the new bulb and run that till it dies. Then if I'm in a pinch go back to my current bulb until I can purchase a new one? Does that sound reasonable or should I just stick with my current bulb till I'm sure that it's dying?


Thanks in advance!

When I had FI on whether low, normal or high I would experience audio sync issues. Once I turned it off the problem went away. If I go into to my Marantz audio/video processor, I have a audio sync setting that can fix this problem, but it is a pain changing it every time I use FI. I rather just not use the FI setting. I usually only use it for sports anyway and shut if off for everything else.

Regarding Super Resolution, I have it set to either 1 or 3 depending on the input source and have not encountered any audio sync issues with my setup.

At any reasonable seating distance you won't see SDE on the 5030. If you get very close to the screen you'll start to see it, but that distance would be a ridiculously close distance. Those exact distance will depend very much on your sensitivity to it, and your vision. If you have 20/10 vision, you'll notice it far sooner than I would, with my 20/20 corrected vision.

There's no reason I can think of to prevent you from swapping bulbs to check your current one against a new bulb. Be sure to use clean cotton gloves, or soft cotton cloth like a wash towel. Any oil on the bulb will significantly reduce its life.

Thanks for the info. I will make sure I'm careful when swapping them! Not sure I'll do it quite yet but I may sooner then later. I'll keep my current bulb on the shelf that I can go back to. I figure I've gotten almost 2 years so far on this current bulb and it's not terrible yet. If I can get another 2 years or more hopefully out of the new bulb and squeeze out more time out of this current bulb if I put it back I may be good for quite some time.


Thanks!

Hi guys. I'm planing to buy myself 5030ube cos I think I won't get much of improvement on 5040 on 1080p content only. there are just a few stores selling 5030 and I think I should hurry before they are sold out like 5030ub. but i'm suspicious whether I'm going to get new or refubrised ones. I'm asking these cos I won't be here in the states much and wouldn't like to take home refurbished pj. thanks for any help provided.
