Really. Why is this please?

I have always been told to leave the DI off when calibrating.

Hi All, I'm really loving the 500, but had this fault just appear. Vertical red lines in a couple of bands run across the width of the screen. The lines appear with no source equipment connected, so it is a fault with the projector itself. Has anyone seen this before?

i had a unit that developed these lines and it needed to be replaced. In particular if you see the lines with no source?

In search of video bliss...

On my VW1100ES, with the DI disabled (DI Off and Gamma Off), I have to lower the contrast to 89 to avoid clipping the whites. With the DI enabled on Full Auto (Gamma Off), even with the contrast at Max, the whites would not be clipped. So, this suggests that the DI has other effects (on contrast, gamma) than just lowering the output level in dark scenes. Therefore, you should calibrate the contrast with the DI on, if you plan to leave it on when watching video programmes.

It appears that the unit is faulty. Contact your dealer or Sony to have the PJ replaced or repaired.

Thanks Michael, I'll let you know how it goes.


Also, on another subject, was it reported what Firmware 1.20a does? Google comes up with the following on the latest batch:
Now shipping latest batch VW500ES! Comes with firmware 1.20A!
Latest batch has significantly reduced thermal blue convergence (less color fringing as the panels warm up)
I'd be interested to know what has been changed to achieve this!


Thanks again all and cheers
