I just bought a benq w2050 that I need to install. I haven't had the time to do it because I will have to move my mount and power/av connections.

I will have a nice working H9500bd to sell shortly...

Yeah. Fortunately I have the old one as backup (both were mounted and used alternately). It's Sanyo PLV-Z2000.
I guess and home it will survive till I switch to possibly (Faux) 4K some time this year.
My eyes are set on Epson 5040

My 9500BD is back to life.
As it went dark all of a sudden I suspected something really very simple (or a total disaster).
I brought it down and even opened it and then noticed the tab on lamp door was broken and that was making it sit improperly.
Behind that door is a safety switch that gets pushed when door is in place. Due to the tab that switch was not getting pushed causing the PJ to be dark.
For the lack of any appropriate solution I just put a tape on the door to make it sit properly and now all is well.

Interesting to hear the review of the Benq compared to the Acer.

I am replacing the lamp,and had to go to the local hardware store to get a few parts that I feel needed replacing. But now I can't figure out how to seat the bulb properly and there aren't any youtube videos or anything to get me back on track. I feel like an idiot but does anyone have any links or anything to help me get my baby up and running again?

Thanks (and feel free to laugh, I would be if I weren't feeling so stupid).

Question Lamp or ballast problem on H9500bd

hello,
i'm new on this forum and i've a problem with my h9500bd.
Is there a service manual for this projector ? I search, search and search but nothing !

the problem :

it has a new lamp (80 hours) and now i when i switch it on, after a little time (not even the same) it power down, with lamp led red on and power led red on.
the first 80 hours was ok.
and if i replace the lamp with an old on, i've the same problem.

So i think it's the lamp's ballast problem !

if someone has had the same problem ???

Thanks in advance.
Cordialy.

Purple blinking problem

My projector almost dead. First, it started switch off unexpectedly. And it was not possible to turn it on. Power led blinked red/blue and it seems like purple. If disconnect power cord projector start working again. Problem could repeat after 10 minutes or 2-3 hours of work. Then it stops lighting at all. I try to turn it on but lamp is not started, coolers are not working. Power led switches from blue to red/blue blinking. In the service guys said it is motherboard problem. Has someone heard about similar case? Is it really mainboard or lamp driver or power supplier or something else?

BTW, I got B3 firmware and instruction how to install it. If somebody still need it write me your request.

If it ends up dying and you want to stay with a h9500bd I have one to sell.

I just bought an epson 5300ub and my h9500bd with ~500hrs on an OEM bulb is sitting around waiting for me to be motivated enough to sell it.

I also have 4 or 5 pairs of the original acer glasses if anyone needs those...

How would you compare the 5030 to the h9500bd? How is the motion on it?

The 5030 has a good variety of motion settings. I am not a big fan of SOE so I tend to keep it on a low setting. The 5030 is more adjustable than the h9500bd.

The 5030 has better brightness especially in 3d but also doesn't allow eco mode 3d so it has a lot of fan noise when it automatically turns on high output mode when you watch 3d movies.

The 5030ub is quite clean as long as you don't turn super resolution on. With super resolution on all diagonal lines appear jagged.

I am somewhat tempted to buy and evaluate a 5040ub because of the high fan noise which really bugs me on the 5030ub.
