The G15 is a 440 watt light canon. Is the RS1 going to look dim by comparison? There is total light control in the room. The ceiling is Kodak gray. The walls are all dark non-reflective cloth.

He is asking $500. Should I hold out for a brighter unit? I am sold on JVC DILA .. so I would only move up in that product line.

Thanks
I bought the projector. He brought it over and we ran it in my theater and it looks fantastic. Got it all mounted last night in the same position as the G15. It might be a little dark on some movies in regular power mode but there are no issues in high power mode. I have not done any real setup or calibration yet ... just blown away by the difference in resolution and black level from the G15. Had to run an HDMI cable to the computer .. but now I can also connect DirecTV. Best $500 I have spent in a long time.

How does the RS1 compare to my current Benq w1070?
Local seller has one for $500, not sure how many hours on it yet.
Is this worth dealing with or should I just save for a Sony 40es or the like?

Since the hours can be reset the usage time may not be accurate. I would ask the seller if he ran it on high or low power mode. High power mode reduces the D-ILA panels life span due to higher heat levels. When exposed to higher heat, the image may have a strong green cast to it...

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

Sounds like I'll just skip it. Not worth hassling with such an old projector

I was just wondering if anyone could help out with a quick question I have on my RS2. I bought it without the lens shift mechanism then I bought the part straight from JVC, it appears to be the correct part but doesn't connect with anything. I will attach pictures of what JVC sent me, mine and tag.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you

After replacing my RS1's bulb twice through AV Science, I bought my next bulb from Lamp Source. That one started flickering just before it hit 1000 hours, which is disappointing.

Now it looks like AV Science doesn't carry the BHL5009-S anymore - they recommend its "upgrade," the BHL-5012S. Their price for that is almost a 50% markup from the BHL5009-S.

Does anyone know anything about the BHL-5012S? In what way is it upgraded?

How long did the BHL5009-S bulb from AV Science last?

These are the only places i have found that older bulb at:

I replaced the AV science ones (as well as the original) when they hit the recommended 2000 hours, just to be safe - they all worked fine when retired.

Weird Image Issue

So my RS1 is having a new issue. This is my first projector and I bought it almost 2 years ago and it has been absolutely rock solid. My bulb died a few months ago and I replaced it with a new OEM bulb and as of about a month ago I started noticing it looks like the picture is now getting some kind of weird "digit noise" issue. The best way I could describe it is it almost looks like a flicker in the bulb or like kind of like water where someone is running their hand through it.

This only happens when the projector heats up and it doesnt matter where i have anything plugged into it or not.....So i ended up replacing the bulb thinking maybe I just got a dud but got another OEM bulb and i'm having a similar issue (granted there are now 2 hours on this bulb).

Any ideas? I cleaned the lens with a camera cleaning kit and cleaned the prism between switching bulbs. Besides that the picture looks great.....also this only is really visible with bright colors and obviously white.

Thanks in advance!

Clean the contacts of the bulb assembly... That got rid of flicker on my RS-1.... Use Caig's DeOxit. Apply it to the lamp contacts and insert/remove the lamp a few times..

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

Jon S is my belated man crush Monday. That fixed the problem and the picture is noticeably brighter. Thank you!!

You are very welcome... I am amazed how many people do not know of this trick. Anyone with a projector should be aware of this issue with oxidized contacts on the lamps... It fixes flicker and sometimes lamp brightness...

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

Should I replace my bulb?

I bought my RS1 used in 2009 and it came with a new bulb. Since then I've put almost 3000 hours on the bulb, and it's still going strong. At the rate this is going, I was thinking of just riding this bulb out as long as possible. When it finally dies, I'll interpret it as a sign from the HT gods that it's time to upgrade to a 4K projector.

On the other hand, I was thinking that my PQ may have been degrading little by little over the years, and it was just so gradual I didn't realize it. Do you think I would notice an improvement in PQ by putting in a new bulb? I noticed the comment by Jon S saying that I should clean the contacts. I suppose I should do that first? Just to be clear, as far as I can tell, the PQ is still as good as the day I bought it. I'm just wondering if it actually isn't, and I just haven't noticed the change.

Not overall PQ... just brightness which can make it look sharper and give it more contrast range.

That sounds like improved PQ!

Yes, but just one aspect... there are many others... gamma, contrast, grayscale, sharpness, color... I just didn't want you to think it would be a panacea.

3000 hours is pushing it, you are 1,000 hours over the recommended life... I would definitely replace the lamp right away. If the lamp explodes, you can have a big mess inside the projector with shards of glass all over with the additional possibility of damage to the optical block which means the projector will be toast as it will not be worth the time and money to repair it. Note that the lamp is composed of quartz glass. This means the shattered shards will be very sharp and dangerous to clean.

Be aware that the OEM lamp apparently is no longer available. You will have to contact JVC or a dealer for the new SKU for the replacement lamp. I would not recommend shopping around with non-OEM lamps as many are not up to par as the OEM lamp, with dimmer output and shorter lamp life.

Looks like JVC still has the original bulbs in stock: http://store.jvc.com/catalog.php?id=2606

I just ordered one and will see if it is truly a 5009S or the new replacement bulb number.
