We've already determined there's something weird going on with the ps3 and this projector. Every other video source (pc, cable tv, bluray, xbox 360) is fine, but for some reason the ps3 produces a weird flicker effect. Maybe you could use a hdmi to dvi adapter and then a dvi to vga adapter into the projector. Don't know if this will fix it, but at least it will change the 1080p signal from digital to analog which might help. Analog signals are always on, but digital signals are not. There are either on or off; any variance below a certain threshold will be read as an off, and this projector seems to be sensitive.

I'm using a 50' cable without any issue, I had to carry on my blu ray and projector to the shop to get one that works, had similar issues as you had, at the end I got one that works.

I bought one of these projectors 2 weeks ago and I cant deny I am very happy with it, for the price its somthing else. Bar one issue! :(

 

I have it hooked up to both a gaming PC and a PS3, the PS3 is what I would like to use it for 3D films and gaming but im having a mare setting it up.

 

Firstly when you set up the display on the PS3 using automatic it scans the display and determines it can output in 1080p so chooses this as the default output. Problem is, as I have noticed on here, it doesn't like 1080p from some devices thus it cant lock onto the signal and it flicks between the PS3 output, white noise and the blue screen.

 

At first I figured the projector was faulty as I tried 2 ps3's and 3 HDMI cables, all of which gave the same result. I took the projector back and they gave me a new one (I forgot to put the 3D glasses in the box, oppps :-) ha ha, so now have two pair! result) Anyho turns out the projector wasnt faulty, it just doesnt like the 1080p signal from the PS3.

 

Prob is running it in 720p it doesnt detect it as a 3D device so I cant play or watch 3D stuff on it..

 

Is this somthing anyone else has had a problem with? Any idea on solutions?

 

Thanks...

Don't know if it works for you, but with my blu-ray I had issues running 3Ds files from USB and I changed the blu ray resolution to 720p as someone suggested on this same forum, and it worked for me, give it a try, don't know if you can change the PS3 from full HD to 720p, but if you can, do it and see if it helps you out.

Hi Chaps... I hope someone out there can help me....

 

I bought the 7820 and I've been desperately trying to get the 3D to work.... Can someone please put together a definitive guide on what I need to do to playback 3D from my PC?

 

I have the projector set up as an extended screen... and the option to enable stereoscopic 3d settings for all supported displays is ticked... yet no 3D source I play on the projector screen is detected by the glasses or the projector.... I did have some joy disconnecting my PC monitor and setting the stereoscopic player (I just found on the internet) to use AMD HD3D but the glasses just seemed to flash erratically and the image shown didn't really look 3D at all...just a blurred mess....

 

Complete Noob when it comes to all this so a setup guide would be useful....

 

fingers crossed...

Well, I have used it several times through the PC and there is no specific 3D detection going on inside the projector that I can tell. It's just a switch. You turn 3D mode on the projector on and the screen will look like a weird jumbled mess. The glasses do all the work, which is why they are called active 3D glasses. You don't need any software on the computer. You need a video file that is already in 3D format and the projector just automatically decodes it to work in conjunction with the glasses. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the help guys,

 

What happens with the PS3 is it detects if it plugged into a 3D display and if so it will ask you some extra details when you set up your displays, this wasn't happening but as of yesterday it started detecting it as a 3D compatible device and allowed me to input the screen size as a setting.

 

I thought I had cracked it but when I go into the 3D ready games they do not detect the display as 3D and thus I cannot select the option to start the game in 3D.

 

I am a touch confused as to how the 3D menu works in the projector thou and the manual doesn't really shed any light.
