I'm moving my setup to a slightly more dedicated space sometime soon hopefully.

Currently I am using a rear shelf mount. For the new setup I am probably going with a ceiling mount. Can anyone recommend a good generic that fits well? The official one seems way over priced.

I am using a cheap Mustang Mount from Amazon. I think it was $25 maybe. Supports mine fine.

Well after 2 1/2 years and 1052 hours my 5020 got the double blinking redlights. I bought it refurb from visual apex. I tried switching out the bulb with a new one but still no go. Anybody got any ideas what it might be? Is it worth taking to a authorized service center for repair? Any help would be appreciated.

God damnit, mine just died with two red blinking lights.

And it was just 2 months ago that I had it serviced for dead power supply fan, and new bulb.. $750

And now this. What a piece of junk.

Im so upset

Hi,

I have a new-to-me refurbished Epson 5020UB I got about a month ago. Today, while my daughter was watching a show, the projector stopped displaying anything. You could see some very dim light from the bulb, but it wouldn't display its source, and it would also not respond to me hitting MENU on the remote.

Is that something that is known/has been seen? Should I call Epson and see if they have another unit under their warranty? If they don't, what do they do warranty-wise?

After some more troubleshooting, it looks like it might be the HDMI 2 input on my receiver that is failing. Good thing I have many inputs.

RE: the warranty, yes, though while everybody says how good Epson "we'll ship you a projector" warranty is, the warranty actually says exchange or repair at their option, and repairs puts shipping costs to a repair center on you both ways (easily $60-$80). And given that I have a refurb of a unit made four years ago, there may not be any exchange possibility, really... We'll see if I need to use it.

They do fail. My first one failed just a bit after 3 years and only 1500 hours. The 5020UB refurb was $1100 which was cheaper than repairing the 3020 (for basically what I had paid originally). I bought this one with a card that adds two years of warranty. I am willing to pay $275/year for a 100 inches screen and not having a TV in my living room.
