I'm finished with reading the whole topic YES.
I have a TW9000W (6010) White and Wireless.
I bought it in November 2011 and have Fiwmware 100
I'm on the 325 Hours on the Lamp.
Like always's my projector worked very good till I started reading this forum haha.
* About Airblowing:
Twice I had the projector Blowing air , and after a minute or so it turned on in silence.
I thought it was because the projector needed fresh air.
I have the projector standing in a closed closet, 1 meter (3Ft.) behind us in the livingroom.
When we go watch a movie, we open the closet door and lower the electrical screen.
I have two screens, 1 White 120screen (which wont work well in my livingroom, because of the white ceiling and floor, and light blue walls) and 1 HC lightgrey 106screen. (which works icredible well, and gives the picture a Plasmalook)
~ I'll keep my eye on the projectors air blowing issue now, after reading this here.
*About focusing the projector:
I do that with a Binoculars, so I can zoom in to the pixels and focus.
You have to focus your projector at 1/3 of the picture's wide and NOT in the middle, otherwise the middle will be sharp and the will be sides fussy.
That's the normal way to go on every projector.
I do have an issue with calibrating this projector, and I'm hoping some of you can help me out.
I use Calman 4 and a Eye One Pro.
With a new lamp I calibrated the Natural mode, and it was pretty good.
Now, after 325 hours on the lamp, I cannot get the Primary's in place.
The Grey scale is perfect and Gamma is straight.
Watching the picture, the colors are not good for me.
Now I calibrated the Cinema mode.
The colors were death-on the triangle of Primary colors and secondary colors.
The dots right in the middle even zooming in on the triangle with Auto Zoom anabled.
The Grayscale is perfectly straight.
The colors look amazing.
(You'll never NEVER get this so good with a Calibration DVD alone.
I did use the DVE Blu-Ray in the first few hours of the lamp, and watched a few movies with that calibration in natural mode of course.
Yes, it is far better using a disk than leave it without tuning at all.
But the difference is incredible after a real calibration.
If you spend so much after for a projector, I would definitely let it calibrate by a pro, if you cannot do it yourself)
Now my problem:
Looking at the Gamma, it looks like this: \\
It only hits the target of 2.4 at the 35 IRE
I think the problem is, that we cannot choose the Gamma Color in any other mode except for Naturalmode.
Now, I tried to play with the custom Gammasetting but I have to place the slides/pointers so incredible stupid to see some good changes, but never right.
Can someone tell me how to get good Gamma on a Non Natural mode, please?
Here's a picture of my Gamma, which is the best I could get.
