The tech report came back,is as follows:"Sorry ,late reply about the reason the defective unit ,I list the answers from our chief engineer as below:
When at stand-by screen ,it is Blue background ,you may see "Water drop" at the left of screen .
Reason: The terminal wire of CPU drive board (NOT CPU ,it is CPU drive board) was bad connection
Problem 2: there is a flash every 400 seconds .
Reason: a gold-plate part is oxidized during long distant .We have maken the anti-oxidizing solution about the part.
Problem 3: there is a Yellow spot on screen center .
Reason:it is optical parts problem .(the optical parts is from 3M company) ,we have replace a new parts."
Its pretty good they did other tests to it i never noticed a flash, or a water drip (whatever that is)
I know a bunch of the skeptics will scoff at the problems, but you have to hand it to them, they are the underdog pioneers in this field, pushing huge boundaries in the face of major brands being the only
3 LED & 3LCD projector on the market.
Whilst they should have intercepted the problem before the projector was sent, i am satisfied with their customer service for keeping it real.
I`ll take the opportunity to advise them their dust filters sux though, they are easy maintainable, the dust filter enclosures slot out of the bottom of the projector. The material looks too thin to work as an effective dust catcher, however there is enough space to replace/add to thier filter material with your own custom filter.
Only DLP has sealed enclosure as far as i know all LCD projectors have dust issues.
Whilst now GREAT my projector is working fine now, i still feel pretty happy about how things turned out as in many ways the price of this projector is sorely undervalued "ITS 3 LED + 3 LCD come on people!, one lens or six lens, repeats one lens or six lens , ", even with the cost of returning it for repair, this projector under epson brand would cost much more thousands of dollars!, but wait its got epson as partner already using their parts inside it already, + oh look an Mstar Semiconductor how nice
, did they mention 3M? never heard of them oh well...
