whoa, that sucks rboster. Sorry to hear of your trouble. I hope my "green line" problem isn't on the road to the same thing. Though it's still a rare problem for me.

Best of luck and keep us informed.

Thanks Rich for the kind thoughts...

It was strange (to some degree). About a month ago, one day I stopped getting a signal from either HDMI input. After a long day downloading firmware etc, the picture came back...so new firmware "seemed" to solve the problem.

Fast forward to this week, I watched a movie Tuesday night and no issues at all. Last night I went to fire the projector up to watch the KU game and ....nothing....no indicator lights on in front. A complete DOA. So, I'm not sure if the previous issue was the first indicator of this current DOA? Or, are the two issues unrelated? I had to chuckle, since I pulled my receipt I realize I bought the projector 363 days ago from when it died....so happy anniversary JVC!!

All that being said, it puts out the best picture I've ever experienced in my set up. So even paying a $100 to ship it in for repairs, if I never have another issue, I still be pleased with the purchase.

PS: Sorry to hear about the issues you are having with your projector. I'll make sure to post the results of the repairs (when needed to be fixed etc). I'll also post my experience with Mendtronix repair facility.

I thought I'd post my question here too, since the X500 and X700 are so similar.

How do you guys adjust the sharpness on your projector?

On every guide I've read, it is suggested that you increase the sharpness to the max setting, then decrease it until the white double edge completely disappears.

There is a setting, one of the MPC sliders, that seems to have something to do with sharpness, but there is no way cranking it up to the max produces any visible artifact (it does something, but the effect remains subtle, even at 100...)

So, is there another setting on the X700 to adjust sharpness?

There is no "sharpness" setting like there used to be on older JVCs. The non-adjustable sharpness setting is great out of the box so there's no need to worry about adjusting sharpness. To increase "sharpness" you have the option to enable MPC (the enhance slider) and/or enable Clear Black.

Personally I have enhance set to 15 for most content, eshift off, and clear black off. This is enough "sharpness" enhancement for me. YMMV and you may want to have other features enabled but know that having them on at a certain point will do more harm than good. Use common sense. Use it in modest amounts.

Thanks for your wisdom. I just like to have the option, even though I might not use it. I like my picture to look digital, if that means anything.

My beloved 700 comes home tomorrow...can't wait to fire it up and catch up on the movies that I have backlogged over the last three weeks.

For those eyeing the B-stocks Mike mentioned.....I have no regrets with this projector and would buy it again in a heartbeat. My only regret is not jumping on the JVC bandwagon earlier (though my Planar severed me well).

Yes, the planar is serving a hard 20 for his crimes.
