No, apart from the cooling fans, these things are solid state, and require no burn-in period.  In fact, the longer you use the projector, the weaker the lamp (although, the Sony's lamp is of very long life).

Optoma 39 Grams - you hardly know they're there.

The Samsung SSG-5100 RF glasses are 21.5 grams. http://www.samsung.com/ca/consumer/tv-video/tv/tv-accessories/SSG-5100GB/ZA-spec?subsubtype=3d-glasses. Crazy light, and I see them online for 20 bucks.

Mine did not come with the cable. I don't believe the US version comes with it. I don't know why.
wildbluesea's Avatar wildbluesea 12:20 AM 03-26-2014

Yes, when I purchased the 55ES a few weeks ago it came with the cable to connect the RF transmitter to the proj.  Apparently, the European and Australian versions come with one, but not the US version.

What a bizarre omission for our stateside chums. :eek:

Glad to hear they include the cable, wildbluesea.  'Bout time we got something since  manufacturers screw us on the spare bulbs and ceiling mounts they get in the US with their projectors.

Does anyone have a part# for the cable or know of a 3rd party version for those of us in the US smile.gif

My manual refers to it as a "LAN(M)-MD03(J) Sony"

 

Make of that what you will.

Thanks maybe we can find what kind of cable it is based on that.
abarratt's Avatar abarratt 08:47 AM 03-26-2014

I did a cursory google, and couldn't find anything, but I'm guessing you'll do something more in-depth.


grendelrt's Avatar grendelrt 08:49 AM 03-26-2014
Not really I tried googling and mainly got manuals as a result, does anyone have a picture of the cable?

If I understand the translation correctly, this is the Sony emitter:

... and the third picture down on the page shows the short jumper cable (RJ45 to PS2/DIN?) and the emitter. Click to enlarge.

There's a few of the emitters listed for sale in the EU - they're not cheap. I looked in the UK manual, and didn't see a pinout for the jumper cable. If someone with one in the EU or AUS were to check it with a meter and list the pinout for it, it looks like it would be pretty simple to make one.
abarratt's Avatar abarratt 10:57 AM 03-26-2014

Yes, that looks like the lead required. I found a link to a picture the non-ethernet end...

It's essentially a Vesa 3D din connection. (ignore the jack end)

Looks like a large shipment is coming into Tech Data (Sony distribution) in the next week. Should be able to take care of all back orders once we receive. smile.gif

I have yet to decide on a screen for my HW55ES, but I did mount it from the ceiling around 15ft back and now the 3D glasses will not work. Does the IR not bounce off a wall the same as it would a screen? Or is there something in the settings I need to change?
Bboy_jonno's Avatar Bboy_jonno 10:17 PM 03-26-2014
Hey guys,

Pretty new to these forums, been a long time lurker. Finally got my first home theater all set up yesterday. It has been 2 years in the works and I am super excited for it to finally be here. I would like to thank you all for the valuable information and knowledge I gathered from the Sony HW threads. In the end, I ended up with this projector and can't wait to start using it.
wildbluesea's Avatar wildbluesea 02:55 AM 03-27-2014

Hey, Walshcm, I have my 55es about 4.5m from the screen, or should I say wall, as I don't use a screen.  I have one, but found the slightly off white wall gave just as good a picture, but allowed me to make it any size I like. I compared it to the screen and could not see any difference in picture quality.  The IR bounces off the wall just fine!

You've got the HW55ES as your first projector? You're going to be very impressed, I can tell you. :)


BartClassic's Avatar BartClassic 01:05 PM 03-27-2014

The HW55ES is my first projector as well. I set it up temporarily on a pile of stuff in the basement and then projected it onto a newly built wall covered with a coat of primer. It looked amazing, even without all of the lights off. I can't wait to properly mount it in the ceiling, paint the walls dark, and install a fixed screen. I am very happy with my purchase so far.

Yeah I am sure I will love it. Amazing reviews plus it is a great projector for gaming, lag wise, which I am planing on doing about 50/50 with movies. I always wanted my own theater, now that it is here, it is a bit surreal
Thundersnow's Avatar Thundersnow 08:15 PM 03-27-2014

 I just got a demo of the HW55ES this past weekend and decided it's the one for me. I'm just having a hard time parting with so much money for a projector, but I don't think anything else will make me as happy as the Sony. The biggest selling point to me was how quite it was as I'm going to have it mounted directly above our heads.


Bboy_jonno's Avatar Bboy_jonno 07:37 PM 03-28-2014
Hey guys. For gaming, to reduce lag as much as possible. What would you recommend. I have bypassed my amp with hdmi and have optical from ps3 to the amp. In game mode obviously. Should I disable reality creation? Motion enhancer? Anything else?
Thanks in advance

Sorry this has probably already been answered but a quick search didn't turn anything up - I just got my HW55ES yesterday and it's great -- however, I don't find any warranty card information nor bulb voucher. Is this an outdated thing? Do I need to register online? I can't seem to find anything in the box anywhere.

If you are in the US it should be there. Did you get yours new, from an authorized dealer? If so, I'd give them a call or call Sony.

I've been watching a lot of basketball and movies over the last couple of weeks and I absolutely love this projector. One of the best HT purchases I've ever made.

My bulb voucher was in the box, but it did have a short use by date on it, so you can't wait until the old one dies before using it, so I'll probably give it a miss and just pay full price when the time comes.  In Australia, you don't have to register a product, (in fact I couldn't as the 55ES is not listed on the Sony Aust. site!) but  the original receipt is all you need if the unit needs repair, but the US is probably different.

Is there any chance you could investigate the pin connections on that cable? ... I'm trying to make a cable so I can use my Optoma RF adapter with a HW30ES I just bought.

The adapter cable you show looks like just a passive cable that re-assigns pins and there are only 3 Pins...

With a multi meter you could see which 3 pins on the DIN side go to what pins on the ethernet jack side.
