Hi guys. I'm pretty new to the world of projectors... I just received my Epson 8500Ub the other week after finding a great deal online. Since I received it, I've quickly put 107ish hours on it. Tonight, while watching Weeds (Time Warner, using Scientific Atlanta 8300HD), the picture turned black all of a sudden. About two seconds later, the picture flashed up again, but everything was a weird shade of red. That lasted for about a second, and the picture turned black again. Again, that lasted for about a second, and the picture returned to normal.
Thinking that it was the content, I rewound the DVR recording... Unfortunately, the recording was perfectly fine.
My question is, why did this happen? And do I need to be worried? Since the projector is so new, I'm concerned that this will turn into a problem... Anyone else have experience with this?
By the way, I'm running everything through a brand new Pioneer VSX-1020-K receiver, which has been flawless thus far, even with comparable cable content from my box. I really believe it was the projector which freaked out for a moment, not any of my other components.
