Ha Ha, I used my VW60 for 5 years and only put 20,000 hours on it before it started to have issues, damn consumer junk never lasts

Has anyone experienced a partial remote failure in that it would accept the signal to turn on but not accept the signal to turn off?

I solved it by unplugging the projector for a few minutes but in my experience such solutions are a stop-gap and I'm expecting it to come back again.

Not complaining, that's the only issue I've had and I've owned the PJ since 2007.

Thanks,
Chuck

Has anyone tried the SONY VPL-HW40ES or 55 as a replacement and if so were you satisfied?

I've been very satisfied with the RS-1 and have gone through about 5 lamps. I use it like a TV and no longer in a bat cave.

I Saw good reviews on these Sonys and would like the benefit of their brightness and improved motion blur for watching hockey in a slightly lit room on a 135" diagonal 1.0 gain screen. At $2000 for the VPL-HW40ES, the current national sale price, this seems like it could be an affordable short term solution.

Any thoughts? Thx

Parts for RS1

I bought a JVC DLA-RS1 from someone on Craigslist this weekend. Unfortunately it is broken and the guy won't give me my money back.

I was wondering if anyone has one of these laying around that is broken that I could buy for cheap to fix mine up? What's wrong with it is that only the composite input is working on the video board... no HDMI or component. I'm assuming that I just need to replace the video processing board, but who know?

Please help if you can... otherwise I'm out $550.

now that the price has been falling on the JVC DLA-RS48U it would definitely be good alternative to the sony.
but the sony would be a bit brighter but to my eyes the RS48 looks more crisp and vibrant.
for the money i would go for the jvc.
i guess it depends on how much light you are going to have and whether your going to use it for home theater two.
