Hi, I just upgraded from my Epson 2030 to a used 3020 this weekend. I was happy with the 2030 for the most part but found it just a little lacking in contrast and excessive in fan noise. Found a decent deal on the 3020 but am wondering about a couple things. For one, I thought the performance with ambient light would be better than with the 2030, but it's actually quite comparable. The other issue is a faint beeping sound that's really only noticeable when the projector is muted... which I do a lot, like whenever a commercial comes on.. and the sound can be annoying. I talked with the PO who said the bulb was aftermarket with 50 to 100 hours on it. So, I'm wondering if this projector would look better than my 2030 with ambient light were I to install a new OEM bulb. Also, I've done a lot of searches on this beeping problem and not much turns up, just enough to suspect it is caused by the aftermarket bulb. Could Epson actually be so sinister to sabotage aftermarket bulbs with this annoying beeping sound, and could this somehow be fixed.. like maybe locating a tiny speaker somewhere and disconnecting it.

Is it possible you talk about the iris? If yes, you can disable it in the options.

No, disabling the iris has no effect on the beeping. It's a faint beeping much like the beeper on heavy equipment when it's put in reverse... but very faint. Just loud enough to be annoying. I ordered an OEM bulb today. I'll report back on whether that fixed the problem. I'm thinking this is the same type of sinister mentality that Epson used by putting chips in their ink cartridges that would make them still read empty if you refilled them yourself. It's called corporate greed.

To address the issue of faint beeping in the Epson 3020, I agree, this is something that doesn't turn up much info on google. I can tell you this: A 3020 I bought used had this issue. When I checked, it had an aftermarket bulb. After changing to an OEM Epson bulb the beeping went away. Yes, I agree with you on your accusations of corporate greed. It certainly looks like Epson intentionally engineered something into this projector that would force you to pay for their outrageously priced bulbs, similar to their underhanded practice of chipping their ink cartridges so they will continue to tell your printer it's low on ink if you refill a cartridge instead of paying for their overpriced OEM cartridge. Sad that they would do both of these things.
