Hey guys, sorry for posting this question, the search option isn't very specific, either that or I don't know how to search properly but my question is as followed...
Almost forgot to add this in earlier but my room is completely light controlled with dark carpet and walls along with a black ceiling. Now, are you happy with the black levels of your 4000? I know this is still considered an "entry level" projector, but I still thought it would have better than average blacks, mine currently doesn't (I don't feel anyway). Would a good calibration improve the black level dramatically? I have done the contrast and brightness adjustments to avail no noticeable difference, I was hoping some of you could offer some tips or tricks to improve the blacks, if possible.
Side note, I'm not asking this because I feel that I can pull a rabbit out of my hat, but I still feel like it could/should be able to improve. My blacks right now are a bit on the blue side and in dark scenes, objects with a lot of black in them seem to lack detail.
On a good note, I am very happy with the picture overall and with the colors, just not the blacks. This IS my first PJ so I guess I expected a bit more in that department and it didn't help that almost EVERYONE loves their 4000 so I figured it must be extremely acceptable in all categories
A couple more quickies while I'm writing...
My only two options for switching between aspect ratios are by hitting a bunch of buttons on the remote or use auto-switching, correct? I'm ONLY asking because when ppl mention the memory feature, they make it sound like it was a 1-2 button press to switch ratios, when in my case I have to press "menu" --> scroll down to "lens" --> "memory load" --> whatever ratio I choose --> "enter" --> wait for it to adjust --> then return return return... Again, I'm not complaing because it's a hassle, just want to make sure I'm not missing something.. I THOUGHT that the "memory load" button on the remote accessed the saved ratios, but I was wrong apparently?
Why does the lamp change focus as it warms up? I've seen ppl mention to wait half hour before making focus adjustments, is this about right? I also need to test it a bit more but my focus always seems out of place, not where it was set for the previous movie. I will post an update if I find anything factly unusual.
I think that's about it, sorry this is so lengthy
