PT-AX200 - How is your PJ Mounted and do you have flicker?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I know this topic has been beaten to death but one thing I have never seen asked or mentioned is how is the projector mounted?

I have owned a PT-AX200U for over a year and 1200 hours with out a glitch. In September 08 I moved and my Projector setup changed. I went from a ceiling mount (with about 900 hours) to a shelf mount (aka desk mount).

Just last night my flawless (to me) projector started to flicker and hasn't stopped. So tonight I cleaned the filter to make sure it was still getting good air flow but it was relatively clean. Then I remembered that since I have moved here the projector has overheated 3 times yet it is in a larger room that is cooler. The only difference is how it is mounted.

I am trying to find the time to move the projector closer to the screen which will change the mounting back to ceiling. Just wondering if this will change the flicker issue? Was not moving it due to the flicker but to increase the brightness, from 22' throw to 15' throw.

Just last week I was on here saying how I never had the dreaded flicker problem and one day later...I was getting flickers.

I've seen just about every remedy and tried one of them.

Set your projector to Dynamic mode and let it run 5-7 hours. I did mine from midnight to 7 am and the flicker went away.

Been 6 days and no return of the flicker at all.

Good luck. Another of the remedy's was to reseat the lamp. But since I'm ceiling mounted. I tried the dynamic burn instead.
