Sim2 Lumis Owners Thread - Page 63

post #1861 of 1953
So Lumis's best / brightest new projector, which I assume is the current 3d-solo on their site, only give around 1100 lumens best case scenario with a new bulb, when calibrated? I need to verify that before moving forward looking into it or writing it off as too dim for my needs.

There is the new Super Lumis with a 350 watt lamp -
Quote:
Available in High Brightness (5,000 ANSI Lumens) and Extended Contrast (3,800 ANSI
Lumens) versions. Please specify HB or EC at time of order.

I'm not sure what the calibrated lumens are though.

Craig sold me a new bulb and I just changed my bulb.

Thanks Craig, 5x brighter than my old bulb!!

How do I reset the lamp timer??

Thx!!
post #1864 of 1953
It's in the service menu.... 66206?? Can't remember the code.
post #1865 of 1953
Thank you, it was an option in the Service Menu, "Lamp Reset" it is now reset to "0"...

Just curious if any Sim2 owners have tried the Darbee Darblet with their projector and if so, how were the results?

Sim2 C3X 1080 with Lumagen Radiance XE. I have the Darby installed at the projector end and it is amazing!!@@@ Highly recommended.

Conversely I just removed mine (I have the Sim2 C3X 1080 as well) and marvelled at how much better it is without the Darby. I previously had it set at 50%.

I'm in the minority, but I didn't care for it.

I agree with the two posts above this one, lasted an hour in my system. Not saying it doesn't help some displays, but I preferred the image without the DD.

Seems like about 30% was the consensus "max" to go on the Darbee... I liked the one I tried out in my system with the Sony 1000. It was a friends, though, so it didn't stay.
post #1872 of 1953
I found that when I turned down the C3X 1080 sharpness to 0 that the Darbee improves the picture, but if you leave the sharpness at the prior calibrated setting the Darbee degrades the picture.
post #1873 of 1953
I have an HT5000E and use my Darbee for DirecTV and Netflix streaming only. I never use it for Bluray movies. Even for DTV or Netflix, I keep it below 40%.

Interesting. I still have the Darby in the chain so I'll try that, thanks.

I've not seen any time with BD and the 5000 when the Darby doesn't degrade the image.

I think it improves the picture on my Lumis, but I keep it at 35 - 38%.

That's why I never use it for BD. It does help the lower quality images from DirecTV and Netflix, IMO.

thanks for all of the feedback!

Mike, if you order one from us, and you don't like it, you can send it back for a refund ( minus postage of course ). Give one a try - you have nothing to lose.

Hello everyone, been so busy, and I've had so few problems with the Erskine rebuild of my HT, that I haven't been on in awhile...

Anyway, I'm having an issue with my Lumis. I turn it on and it stays on for around a minute or two and then the screen just goes black. If I turn it off and restart it the same things just keeps happening. The projector is on and functional for those few minutes before it goes black. Any quick fix for this, before I put in a call to Sim2 next week?

Thanks!

What's your firmware version (on front display) or OSD (I think)?
How many hours on the bulb?
And if you look at the rear blue LED display on the projector, there should be an error code number flashing when it does so.
post #1885 of 1953
I will check those and post them when I get back from lunch. Thanks!
post #1886 of 1953
Mine did that a couple times and it ended up being the bulb. I had the original bulb in, it was 4 years old and had 600 hours. A new bulb fixed it (and a brighter picture to boot). Installed myself with a bulb from AVS (Craig Peer)>

When you say the projector goes black, you mean the bulb shuts off but the cooling fans continue to work? Or do you mean the projector shuts down completely - no light, no fans?

When my bulb was going, that screen would go black but the projector kept running as if nothing was going on and the HOST would lact notmally. Fans running, etc.

Bland, my question was for QueueCumber - just trying to get clarification on his problem.

I was aware. Just adding my own previous Lumis issue.
Thanks
