In short, does it happen with no hdmi connected to projector? If so, I'm betting it's a hardware problem. frown.gif


It does happen with nothing connected to the projector.It is now on the way to Sony Prime Support in England,expected back in three weeks.
I want to say thank you for all the help i have got here,I am amazed how much time and effort you
guys are putting in to help out. I will come back and tell you what the problem was:)

Just got this projector a couple of weeks ago and noticed that when I have a look in the info menu it always say 1080/60p/60i/50p even though 24p material is on. Tried both my blu-ray and htpc diectly connected and through the receiver and it changes nothing. Any ideas?

Can someone offer some advice? I have the MonsterVision 3D Max kit for the 3d glasses and transmitter. Last weekend, my first time using it, everything worked fine. However, tonight I can't seem to get the glasses to sync up properly. The emitter is showing full green lights, and it looks like the glasses are powering on (I can see them get darker and flicker intermittently), but they never display the 3D properly.

Has anyone else seen something like this before?
post #2944 of 3210
I had 3 pairs of the MonsterVision 3D glasses, all worked perfectly unless someone is standing right in front of the MV's transmitter then I won't get a signal.

My Sony emitter is place on top of my screen and the MV's receiver is by the left hand side of where all my AV equipment are. Distance from Sony emitter to the MV receiver is about 11'.

We just bought a home that has the VPL-HW30ES projector.

Does anyone know if our TDG-BR100 glasses will work with it?
post #2946 of 3210
I think the BR100 will need an extra filter for it to work with the HW30.
However, the PS3 3D glasses do work with the HW30 and it's only $19.90 at best buy now or $23 at Amazon.
post #2947 of 3210
Would you know where I can find info on that filter?

Also, do you have a link to the PS3 glasses?

Thanks,

William

Why is the seller including it?
post #2949 of 3210
I've been reading this forum quite much in past years but never written anything until now.

I bought HW30ES last year but due to many reasons I was able to install it yesterday. However, there is a problem with the projector: it shutdowns after 5-10s or the latest after few minutes and then starts up again. The unit is placed on the shelf roughly 15cm from the wall and ceiling. There are two air ventilation valves within ~1m range (both sides) from the unit feeding fresh air.

I thought the HDMI cable was the issue (I had to cut the cable and solder new connector to the other end) but it turned out to be fine (verified with other cable). Device producing video was tested (PC and BR player).

Finally I took the unit down and started to think about shipping it service for repair (under warranty) but tested once more running it on a floor. No problems. For more convenient usage I used box under the unit and no problems. Then I installed it back to the shelf and same problems. Tried also lifting up the rear end of the unit to free up air flow a bit and it helped but not much. Keystone was bad so I had to lift the front up and then the problem came back to original level. This morning I tried adding PC fan on the shelf nearby to force air flow but no help - which was strange.

Now I'm going to ship it back to service unless someone has an idea what is wrong here. Very strange problem in my opinion.

I'm thinking of using wall mount solution and flip the unit upside down but don't know if that would give any help. If I need to do that anyway then can someone recommend wall mount rack with adjustable distance up to something like 60cm and that fits nicely to HW30ES. Grey or black would be nice - with reasonable price tag of course smile.gif

TIA

Sounds like it is getting too hot. That's less than 6 inches from the wall. Why not hang it from the ceiling with a ceiling mount and keep it away from the wall ?

Emitter ?

Thinking of buying this projector from BB for 2300.00 but it doesnt come with emitter for 3D . Will any infrared emitter for Sony Bravias work or do I need a specific one ?

I'm not positive but I'd be surprised if any emitter would work except the one specific to this projector since the glasses are not the same ones (by model number anyways) that work with any other Sony 3D.
post #2953 of 3210
The emitter also uses a unique Ethernet / RJ45 cable, which I don't believe is used by other emitters.

Thanks for the info guys . Doesnt matter much though as BB doesnt have any of the projectors available - thought it was too good of deal at that price !

Sony was sent to service and couple of boards got changed (QA and C or V - a bit conflicting info in papers). Now it works fine on shelf without overheating issues on the exact same place where is overheated previously.

hi everybody...
i have an issue with the 3d function of the hw30es:
since the 3d transmitter and the glasses aren't included i bought a tmr-pj1 and a tdg-pj1 separately. now, when i try using my ps3 as 3d player (games or movies) it doesn't work. the picture is shown in 3d (undecodable for our eyes) but is not converted in 3d in the glasses. the led of the glasses blinks every 2 seconds, which is correct, but still nothing happens. everything's connected as shown and told in the installation/description guide. I've already tried 2 different hdmi cables, which are v1.4, several rj-45 cables up to 10m. i guess there is some connection problem between the ir transmitter and the glasses.

plz help me

What 3D mode did you choose and what is your source? Also, check to make sure you have High Speed HDMI cables as the earlier cables didn't have enough bandwidth for 3D.

Try this:

Use any digital camera (in your cell phone or a standalone camera) and look at the emitter through the camera's display. The camera will allow you to see the IR signal from the emitter. If you don't see some bright circles, your emitter isn't working.

Also, keep in mind that the emitter will not work unless it is connected when ac power is supplied to the projector. I don't believe a simple use of the power button is good enough.
post #2959 of 3210
thanks folks for you responses...
the camera trick didn't succeed, i don't see anything while looking through a camera at the transmitter. i guess it's broken.
i just ordered a new one, called TMR-PJ2. will this one work with TDG-PJ1 and hw30?
what about PS3 3D glasses? are they capable with my projector?

thank you all...
post #2960 of 3210
guys, i still can't get my 3d function to work... my source is the ps3, the xmb or fifa 13... as posted before i'm using a tmr-pj1 and tdg-pj1... the picture on the screen is in 3d but as soon as i put on the glasses it's not converted in 3d...

i've tried several rj-45 cables, cat5 mostly...

the trick with the cam doesn't work and seems to be unreliable because i bought a brand-new tmr-pj2, which doesn't show any signs of ir as well (tried 2 different cams)...

my hdmi-cable is high speed... i set the transmitter up right at the screen and right at the projector, both doesn't work...

i've tried all 3d modes... none works

what am i doing wrong?

in the xmb of the ps3 (2d) i activate the 3d function (remote of the projector), which enables the 3d picture, but it is not in 3d through the glasses...

plz help... i really want to try the 3d out...

The xmb is 2D only, so there is no 3D being sent to the PJ. Leave it in Auto mode and play the movie. When the movie starts, it should trigger the PJ to switch into 3D mode and activate the emitter. What movie are you trying to play? Also, what FW is your PS3 at?

If you're trying to play a 3D game, sometimes you have to go into the game settings and turn on Frame Packed mode. Not sure what the fifa settings are, but 99% of the games will not display 3D automatically.

i just tried super stardust hd, it supports 3d... but it is not in 3d...same story, picture in 3d, through glasses it's not 3d... i'm desperate frown.gif

So here is the scenario:

1. Glasses are working, LED blinks on glasses
2. Projector senses the emitter because other wise it wouldn't display the content.
3. No camera senses the IR light coming out of the emitter.

According to the manual the network cable should be a straight type (not a cross-over cable).

So my guess is that the projector may have a broken pin that sends the LeftRight signal to the IR emitter.

Now I am assuming you are not tying the LAN cable for the emitter into a LAN. Someone else tried that recently and the projector would output the 3D image but the emitter wouldnt work. The LAN cable should go directly from the projector to emitter (do not tie it into a network). Just because it has an RJ45 connector does not mean it's a network device.
post #2964 of 3210
all 3 points are correct, that/s the scenario.

i have 2 emitters: tmr-pj1 (second hand), tmr-pj2 (brand-new, delivered today) -> same result.

i tried 4 rj45 cables... the one, which comes with the emitter tmr-pj2, 3 other, most of which are cat5/e... i'm gonna try with a cat7.

the projector is new and was brand-new when i bought it, that means the port should be fine? i didn't try tying the emitter into the network nor the projector.

i guess i'm going to need to call the sony service.

is there any possibility to check every component for functionality? the port on the projector, the emitter (the cam trick), the glasses.

Is this ONLY for PS3 games that the 3D is not viewable through the glasses but fine via 3D BD player or other device?
post #2966 of 3210
What's confusing to me is that you said you thought you saw 3D when on the XMB. Do you have any 3D Blu-rays that you can test?
post #2967 of 3210
hobbit 3d with vlc doesn't work either... the projector is able to convert half-under mode but it is still not in 3d in the glasses...
i give up... the rj45 port is possibly broken...
it's a pity having bad experience with this amazing projector... and sony

That answer shows a basic misunderstanding of the projector design.

First, the PJ would not overheat within 5-10 seconds.
Second, the air intakes are on the back end by the wall with the exhausts at the front. With the curved rear chassis you would be hard pressed to block the intake air flow. I have my unit within a couple inches of the rear wall

Hello,

I'm a happy new owner of this projector, but I have one question for experts :
How can I reset the lens-shift please?
The projector is mounted on ceiling and for my comfort I nearly maxed vertical lens-shift.
I've been told that the lens-shift could alterate global picture quality. I would like to test it and maybe to inclinate the projector instead of playing with the lens-shift.
Could you help me please?

I thank you in advance.
Have a nice day.

Tilting the projector rather than using lens shift would be far worse for your picture quality. If it's properly aligned I recommend leaving it alone.
