Is there anyway you can RS232 control the vertical stretch directly on the JVC?

Also, any suggestions on the bulb? I thought 2,000 hours was the recommended max.

Thanks again.
Luckily the RS1 and RS2 use the same lamp, since not sure what you have. I would use an OEM JVC lamp. Two model numbers are listed for that projector.

Not sure, I thought the bulb life was less... I know I am on my third lamp....


On a side note, I noticed the colors on my RS1 seems to be a bit faded now... I wonder if the colors on the panels fade from long term use... I should have it recalibrated to confirm....

If it's not a BIG screen, it's not a theater...

Do the bulbs really explode? Amazon is selling replacement bulbs that state 2000 hours.

I just searched this entire thread for the word "explode" and the only 4 references come from people saying it "could" explode. I don't see anyone claiming to have actually experienced this.

I caved!

Many people have experienced this. I have had a lamp explode in one of my projectors before. If you are in the room watching the projector, you will know exactly what happened. The loud pop will clearly tell you the lamp exploded.

Hmm. Well bulbs are cheap maybe I'll think about replacing mine. I think I'm at 1500. Are they easy to put it? My PJ is ceiling mounted can I do it without taking it down?

I work at a utility company and we have a lot of projectors in conference rooms... A lot of them had their bulbs explode because they are used way past their lifetime. Users tend to ignore the warning and poof...


Older projectors had bare bulbs, newer ones may have housings for the bulbs which helps...

Also what bulb are you guys buying for these and where do you get them? I see a number of them on Amazon but I don't know if they are original or re-productions.

They are very easy to replace. Clean the contacts in the projector... They tend to oxidize. It also causes the bulb to flicker if contact is poor. Found that out from my dealer. After 800 hours the bulb flickered. I removed the lamp and cleaned the contacts and voila... no flicker!


You might want to see if the optical block needs cleaning as well. It tends to haze after a while....
