Quickly, I have heard there is new firmware for the IN72 already on the InFocus site.
I have the D1 from NewEgg. Did the cap replacement but am having issues with DVD loading and playing correctly. Maybe I can describe the issues and someone can tell me if they are related to the loader?
I watched part of Fabulous Baker Boys the other night, played perfectly w/o incident with all settings correct. Last night, I watched In the Bedroom, both without a hitch. After In the Bedroom, I decided to watch the rest of Fabulous Baker Boys.
The audio would come up but no video.
Opened and shut the door, still no video.
Put in Ghost World and it started up no problem.
Put back in FBB, audio no video still.
Turned the D1 off/on with the button on the front panel.
FBB started up but in 4:3 mode. Went into the menu and 16:9 WAS selected.
Unplugged unit and tried again, still in 4:3 mode even though 16:9 was selected. I even turned the DVD over (4:3 on the other side) and absolutely no difference. Set the D1 to 4:3 and it would play 16:9.
Switched back to 16:9 and tried Ghost World again and it played in 16:9 mode.
Put back in FBB and switched the D1 to 4:3 mode and FBB displayed in 16:9.
Switched the D1 back to 16:9 and put in Gross Anatomy and it displayed in 16:9, watched it and went to bed.
Are these symtoms of a loader problem? Why would FBB display in 4:3 when the D1 shows 16:9 was selected?
I'm prepared to put in a new loader if that is what is needed. What is the latest word on the preferred loader? Also, what issues should I be aware of before, during and after the mod?
Thank you for the help,
My 1st IN72 arrived about 2 weeks ago. It was so loud, InFocus replaced it. The replacement arrived but had lamp flicker. I was using it while waiting for the 2nd replacement and the flicker got so bad, I considered if it would explode or something (my very first projector so am a complete novice and know next to nothing, everything I know I learned on these boards). The 3rd replacement got here yesterday. No lamp flicker that I can see but this thing is the loudest of the 3 I think. I can't understand how anybody could describe the IN72 as quiet by any stretch of the imagination.
I feel very sorry for 4805 owners if it is indeed true that the IN72 on high power is quieter than the 4805 on low power. I can hear my IN72 on low power from 2 rooms away. And, I have 3 of them sitting here and they ALL sound very close to the same. There is no way I have 3 'odd' units that are noisy and everybody else's are quiet.
When I turn mine on, it is very quiet while sitting on the counter with nothing attached to any input. Once the lamp gets hot, it does get a bit noisier but acceptable. When I mount it to the ceiling and put an image to it, it ramps up to almost the exact noise level of high lamp mode. If there is a difference, it is almost imperceptable to my ears. If I cycle between high lamp mode and back to low lamp mode, the IN72 cycles down to the very quiet state. BUT, it only stays there for about 5 seconds then begins ramping up again to the normal noise level, which is to say loud.
I love the image but am very disappointed in the level of noise coming from my IN72. I have plenty of space around my IN72 so it isn't my setup causing undue heat buildup. One night, our living room was only 65 degrees and my IN72 was still loud enough to be heard over every part of the movie we were watching. Sorry for venting...
I really would appreciate any advice on the D1 issue I am having.
