All right, thanks to Curt Palme I found how many fans a D50 has. 3 big on the rear, a small video fan (UC fan) and another small in the power supply: http://www.curtpalme.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=325384
Hi guys, Happy New Year to you all! Yesterday I had some free time so I grabbed the chance to wipe and clean the outside cover of my CRT projector, a SONY VPH-D50 HTM. Then I thought it would be a good chance to check the cooling fans for dust. So I opened the cover and saw quite some dust on the fan feathers. What a great opportunity to have a look in the inside world as I had never opened the projector before. In the beginning I tried to clean the rear middle fan from...
Hi there, I own a SONY VPH-D50HTM that I have connected with a Toshiba HD-XE1 HD-DVD player through a HDFury2 (HDMI connection). My projector is very similar with your's, both are probably the best 7-inch CRT ever. Picture quality is way better through the HDFury2 than the analog component. I highly recommend it. As soon as you can learn a bit how to set-up your projector and can get the HDFury2 you will be surprised with the picture quality at HD 1080i. However on...
It has no phosphor wear at all. Right now the counters meter show 760 hours. I bought it from new and have taken well care of it. I kept brightness at 45 and contrast at 55 out of 100. It definitelly shows no wear on tube faceplates and they still light as new. Not a problem at all!
Well, looks like this kind of istall I think of is rare and practically avoided. Think that I will opt for low ceiling mount to have as less as possible keystone and free all floor space. Thank you guys all for your help.
Indeed, the D50 has a 12,5 degree tube angle according to page 7 of the installation manual, so moving the projector to the center of the screen it has to tilt the back 12.5 degrees for either ceiling or floor installation. I already know this as I intend to do it in order to completelly remove any keystone. On both pages 15 and 17 the projector is tilted as shown on following scanned images. Guys, I don't find difficulty about tilting, I want to know in such an...
I found 2 pictures. Looks like it's possible and the second one has the "sweet spot" intact!
Thank you guys. Yes, the D50 has enough optical range according to the manual: On floor installationYou can install the projector within an angle of optical axis –13.5° to +2° On ceiling installationYou can install the projector within an angle of optical axis +3° to +13.5°. However, on floor installation it refers on a rear projection set-up which is impossible for me. The manual says nothing on same installation but for front projection. So finally is it possible...
Hi guys. After enjoying my SONY D50 for 7 years in the house's living room mounted on the ceiling and having the wife complaining all the time about the space this and the speakers took, now I finally have the opportunity to built my dream home theater room as I will move my job to another small house I own and repair and in a couple of months it will be ready. As I will move all equipment in a dedicated room I can do practically whatever I want as far as installation...
I have for some years a like new little Sony D50HTM that I love! Right now on 690 hours, cause I have a really hard on business life. Yeah, it is noisy, heavy (don't mind) and bulky (don't mind either) and just reaches 1080i from my Toshiba HD-DVD XE1 through HD-Fury2 but everytime I sit and watch a movie (DVD or HD-DVD) I'm in love! If it fails; (knock on wood...) If LED projectors drop prices maybe. If not I will look after a good G90 or Cine9 and ask my wife to mount...
