I need to spend some more time with the panel alignment adjustments. I think I mostly got rid of the green edge to the text but things still aren't great. I'll also let it warm up more before tinkering with the focus too. Some before/after pics would be great.

I have realised that with the focus you need to let the pj get up to full operating temperature, about half hour and then set the focus.
After that don't touch it again as it will change slightly when cold, but goes back to normal when up to temp.
I will try and post some before and after photos.

Quick question.

I recently changed my original lamp in my 5020 after 1600hrs. Replacing the lamp was no sweat. I've since put about 150hrs on the new lamp.

When I ran my calibration for Black levels and contrast (in THX mode), I found I had to crank the contrast down to -16!

After all was said and done, Brightness is set to +2 and Contrast to -16 and the picture looks great. The numbers shocked me, though.

I have a COMPLETELY dark room and an SI 115" ZeroEdge screen -2.4 gain. Oppo 103D-BD player into a Marantz AV7702 to the Epson. No processor modifications.

Anyone else have a similar experience?
Should I put a few more hours on the lamp?
Should I not worry and just enjoy the nice picture?

-Dave

Anyone have any recommendations on where to get replacement lamps? I see alot of places making cheaper replacements, on amazon its hard to tell which is oem and which is not

So far I went through 3 5020's. My original started flickering and after contacting their support they sent me a replacement, this was only after a few months. Then the replacement had a completely distorted signal and output after a few days. Ive been using the final replacement for a little over a year now and it was just fine up until today when I started to see the flickering again. The bulb has ~1500 hrs on it so before I contact their support again (that is even if they let me since I think Im past the original warranty on my first one) I wanted to try a new bulb

Has anyone seen flickering caused by a bulb going out? Should I try anything else?

You might try turning off the auto Iris. I have sometimes seen what I call flickering depending on what I am watching. When I turn off the iris it stops. Only certain scenes seem to trigger this. After awhile I will turn the iris back on and it is fine until the next time. Good luck.

After reading up it appears its a common issue with all home theater projectors basically. Its because when you run in ECO modes the arcs in the bulbs can wear unevenly. I noticed that I do not see the flicker when running in normal mode. From all the threads on the issue I could find is that generally running in the non-eco mode on your projector for ~20hrs will re-wear the arc paths back to normal and the flicker should hopefully go away. So Ill try that for now

Not sure why epson never suggested that the first time i had the problem though

Do people still feel like this unit performs great in 3d? I watched some 3d when I first bought it and don't recall any issues.


However, I recently watched Godzilla, How to Train Your Dragon 2 and Guardians of the Galaxy all in 3d. In all 3 films I noticed a lot of crosstalk. Anyone else experiencing this with newer 3d movies?

I think it just really depends on the movie. Last ones I watched were Lego and despicable me 2 and they looked perfect. However a while ago I noticed a bit of crosstalk in Jurassic park and avengers. It was never constant but noticeable at times. I'll have to try guardians and see if I see it here

Absolutely zero crosstalk in guardians of the galaxy on my 5010.

forgot about the "3D Brightness" setting. Set that from Hi to Medium and it fixed crosstalk in HTTD2. I'll have to try it on GOTG and Godzilla. I think it should take care of it.
