Got it! Thanks!

Tell me, does it erase settings or maintains my ISF settings, input names, etc?

Thanks again!

Loading firmware does not change any settings. Seems to act like a reset otherwise if the projector seems to be acting funky.

I finally got my lumis this days. I'm very happy with the quality so far but would like to calibrate it - can anyone send (pm) me the code to enter the service menu?
thx a lot

I have a different code for mine.
post #1777 of 1953
thx a lot, worked for me ;-)

do anybody know, if firmware update changes the behaviour of dynamic black - when I use it, I sometimes can see some artefacts and changes in brightness (too easily). firmware is 4.01.30F

have a nice day!

M(c) it looks like you may want to revert to an older FW version and see if that is the cause or not... unless someone rec's something better I think that is a good first step to troubleshoot.

Reason: Moving and don't have the space anymore.
Price: Send PM - You won't be disappointed.

Best,

Carlos

Did you sell it already?

I have 851 hrs on my C3X 1080P . The picture is still bright and beautiful. I am planning to get it ISF calibrated soon. When should I change the bulb,Where do I buy the lamp ?

Lamp life is more a function of the number of times it is turned on and off than on the hours it shows on the meter. Good ventilation a cooling is another determining factor. Some people may get a thousand hours or less out of a lamp, while others can get 3K or more. If it is bright enough for you, keep using it. When it comes time to replace the lamp, the dealer that sold you the projector can order the replacement from SIM2.

Hi everyone. Has anyone had any trouble installing new firmware? I was having some problem with 3D movies: the 3D image would not project, just a white screen. I called Sim2 and Fausto sent me the latest firmware for my Solo 3D: 5.00.41. (I was using 5.00.28).

When I tried to install it, the first part, the downloader, installed in a few seconds. Then the appcode.hex file tried to install. It would only do 6%, then stopped. Nothing happened for 30 minutes. I finally cancelled out. Now I am not able to start the projector. The power turns on inside, but the light does not come on or the cooling fans. I just hear a faint fan inside, probably on the circuit board. I've tried it multiple times with the same outcome. Sometimes less than 6% installs.

I have to wait until Monday to call Sim2. Hopefully, they can tell me what to do so I don't have to send them the projector. There are a couple of other functions the installer screen: "Verify" and "erase," but I didn't want to try them. Any suggestions?

Thanks, Jeff

I got the FW to download. The problem was with the Serial-to-USB converter. I tried two without any luck. Finally, I hooked up my old PC with a serial port, and it downloaded just fine.

Help with my Lumis. What might cause my screen to be VERy dark? I was watching Harry Potter last night and the screen was so dark that we could no longer watch it. When I change aspect ratios, it would go back to normal , but only for a second and then it would return to being very dark. Any toughts on what might cause this would be appreciated. It does this on DVD'd and normal TV.

How many hours are on your bulb? I had an issue with one of the bulbs. As it aged it started to droop and most of the light was missing the lens.

Maybe the dynamic iris has gone bad?

Perhaps the aspect ratio that is dark saved a picture setting that is too dark

Does anyone have a sense of what a used C3X 1080 is worth? I know someone that has one and is looking to upgrade to a SOLO.
post #1793 of 1953
Id be interested in this also, what appears to be the guide price for a used c3x1080?
post #1794 of 1953
Depending on what advice you get, I might be interested
post #1795 of 1953
Its only worth a grand. If you're interested call me!

(What type of advise do you expect to get here. Seriously, I've had my C3X 1080 for almost 4 years now and it ain't goin' nowhere!)

Check Videogon to see what used C3X 1080s are going for!
post #1796 of 1953
If I were looking at a used one its price would depend first of all on age (lamp hours), and how well it is converged. Values plummet on big ticket items like these due to lack of warranty and other causes. Price will depend on buyer of course but I'd expect below 50% of original price (not necessarily MSRP) typical, depending on details, and history. Because these are sold regularly heavily discounted new, you have to compare street prices of a new unit and work down from there. If I were buying Steve's (and not his imposter LOL), or Rivercitylad's where I know the person and the history, it would bring a much better price than from a stranger on Audio/Videogon where I know nothing about the unit, how it may have been cared for, etc. Or if I were buying one perfectly converged and freshly serviced at Sim2, that would be a very good one for example.

Short answer, it depends . And Steve, I'll give $2k for yours if it helps .

That said, I'd take a used C3X over some alternatives. But I love 3 chip DLP .
