I'm just setting up my Epson 6500UB Refurb and of course looking to get the most out of it, but want to make sure that it's issue-free. This is replacing an Epson Powerlite 1080 so hopefully a step up at least in regards to black levels.
A couple questions for the owners in the hopes they might know...
- When the projector powers up, the image has a very green look to it for the initial 30-60 seconds or so. This clears up once it gets to full brightness, but I never saw my old 1080p do that. Normal?
- When I look closely at the screen on projected white text, I can see definite green and red convergence bloom around the letters. It's not terrible, maybe a pixel or two off the white, but it's there. Of course when I back up off the screen the eye can't notice. I remember my old Epson LCD did this as well so I assume this is just a fairly common trend of LCDs.
- I'm going to wait to closer to 100 lamp hours to calibrate, but I'm noticing a lot of recommended calibration settings use the projector in high lamp mode instead of low. I've always run in low to preserve bulb. Anyone else here using low? I noticed the fan noise was a lot greater with high on, and given I sit with the projector shelf-mounted above the seating area, fan noise can be a bit distracting.
Overall, happy with the condition and the (I assume) new lamp that came with it. Just want to make sure there are no warning signs that would indicate swapping for another one through Epson, before they're all gone! 6500UB's can't last forever especially at the price I paid.
Thanks for any advice!
