No idea. All I can say is that switching to HDMI 2 and then back to HDMI 1 was the best way of overcoming it momentarilly. I thought it was just my 3010 being faulty.

Mine did it on 2D BD as well, however.

I've heard of other people saying they have the same issue. I'm not sure if they've all had PS3 slims (as you and I both do). I didn't contact Epson about it- I'm not sure if anyone has.

I had contacted Epson about this issue and the advice they have me was to turn off the "Super White" on the PS3. I am not sure if this will resolve your issue but I believe that it did for me. I had the picture blank out and then come back in or it would flash to a white screen. I called Epson, was transferred to a high level tech and that was the advice that was given.

Cool. Hopefully that works. It was pretty annoying.

Thanks. I've actually tried that and it didnt work but i will try it one more time. Switching hdmi ports didnt work for me either.

Super-White - should be OFF

I got my Epson 5010 a few weeks ago and when my calibrator showed up the other day he said there was one dead pixel - just off to the right of the center of the screen. I never noticed it until he pointed it out.

Even though I can't see it unless I really really look for it, it just drives me crazy that there is a dead pixel - but I don't know if I'm just being ridiculous.

Is one dead pixel worth contacting Epson about - and would they even do anything about it?

From an online dealer.

Please know that our suppliers only provide us with their highest quality units available. On occasion a projector may have 1 (one) or more "Off" or "Out" pixels, also referred to as "Bad" pixels. It is industry standard to allow for a few "Bad" pixels on an LCD panel or DMD chip. The actual placement and number of "Bad" pixels allowed varies by manufacturer. The issue of "Bad" pixels does not qualify a projector for replacement as a "Defective" or "D.O.A." unit, but may be returned to the manufacturer for their evaluation; their decision is final in each of these cases. We apologize for any inconvenience the manufacturer's policies may cause.

Texas Instruments have a special 5 year dead pixel warranty. There was a press release about it.

This was a pretty hot topic several years ago, but I haven't heard much about it recently. I'll be interested to hear what others say...

Epson will replace your projector for a thousand reasons. Tell them it makes funny smells or gets unreasonably hot...

I had a dozen swaps for convergence - a dead pixel would frustrate me just as bad. Once you see it...

Bummer.

To be clear, when I said switching to HDMI 2 and then back to HDMI 1, I just meant on the remote. At first I would turn the PJ off anytime it happened. But then I found I could switch to another input, and then back and it would resync the picture. It was sort of like re-rolling the dice to see if the picture would do that glitch again.

It sucks during previews that you'll do the hokey-pokey to get the picture stable... and then the very next preview starts going out... But it's better than turning everything off and then back on.

I've always heard Epson's customer service was awesome but I've never had to use it. My 1st generation 1080ub was solid as a rock the 3 years I owned it.

Are you really serious all I have to tell them is that it makes a funny noise, gets too hot, or whatever and they'll just replace it no questions asked? They won't want to check it out first before they send me a replacement?

My other issue with this is the projector was just calibrated at a cost of $300. Is there a way to transfer the settings over to the new projector?

I also have a dead pixel Only notice it if I stand about a foot from the screen and look for it. Noisy iris bothers me a lot more. I am not sure if mine is extra loud or they all sound the same. I would hate to return it and have other problems.

Is everyone with PS3 Slims having trouble with the 5010?
post #2025 of 2311
That's where I'm at...what if I return this and the new one also had a dead pixel or some other issue. If I wouldn't have had this thing calibrated I might have rolled the dice on returning it but I think I'll just live with it.

Well, you have two years to ponder exchanging it.

Did anyone do their own install and ceiling mount?
I put my projector up right away but never concealed the wires. I'm getting ready to put them into the ceiling now, just wanted to hear from others what they did for power?
I have a power cleaner I'd like to run it through but not sure if I want to simply run an extension cord through the wall, or actually wire a plugin on the ceiling by the projector.
Any advise or examples of what you did would be helpful.
Thanks!

I would not run an extension cord through the wall. It's a fire hazard, and if you ever do have a fire your insurance company won't pay.

I have a utility closet. I use a UPS to power the in wall power I ran to the PJ. I used a UPS so that if I have a power outage, the fan will keep running on the PJ, giving me a chance to shut off the PJ. Plus Electronics can be damaged by sharp voltage dips.

I can confirm that the flashing issue shown in the YouTube video above is exactly the same as my friend experiences on his TW8000 (aka 5010) with a brand new slim ps3. He only experiences this with 3d however, everytime without exception, but 2d is fine.

Will let him know about the ps3 super white setting to try.

As mentioned on the 5010/6010 thread, it does work for him to switch hdmi ports on the projector remote.

Same with me. 3d only and not everytime but 90% and 2d blu ray or tv is perfect. Disabling super white didnt work for me because I tried it more than once nor did switching hdmi on remote or the ports on back of projector. The crazier thing is my ps3 fat works like a champ 100% of the time and never an issue what so ever.
post #2033 of 2311
I wonder what components in the ps3 fat that are so different than in the ps3 slim to make such a difference with the 5010. In a general it would seem the ps3 slim would be a better player because its 4 years newer and probably better hdmi components.

Are you sending PCM or HD bitstream out your slim?
The fat PS3 can only do PCM for HD audio.

May be force your slim to PCM audio out.

Thank you! I've decided to run my own circuit off the conditioner, like the package recommended by the other person. I also talked with my electrician friend who's been helpful making sure it's up to code and not going to overload the current circuit.

They make kits for this basically it is a mail outlet box with a special cord and then a female outlet box that gets connected together with Romax. Snapav sells some there may be some up on Amazon if you have trouble PM me I have some of these we use them all the time. Or I may be able to dig you out a link to one.

I think this is the one you speak of :

Thank you all for the advise.
I was able to get it hooked up last night. I used standard plugins on both ends and Romex in the wall and ceiling. This allows me to have an input on one end and output at the projector. Works just like those kits only cheaper!
I know some people say they can't tell the difference with a power conditioner, but I definitely do! Especially with audio.

I just got my 3010 a few days ago and I had a hard time getting 3d to work with my windows 7 pc. I can only get it to work when setting it manually to side by side. Leaving it on auto does nothing. So then I went out and purchased a 1.4a video card. Then connected it. Now the pc recognizes the 3d settings and adjusts the video accordingly, but the projector still doesnt recognize it. I still have to select side by side or 2d to get it to work. I'm not sure

Why isnt the projector able to recognize it? I've even disabled the main monitor and made the projector my main monitor and still nothing. Is this a firmware issue within the projector? Does anyone else have this issue when running from a pc?

Since I have to do it all manually the 2d to 3d button doesnt work which is annoying that I have to do it manually every time...

Depending on what your market is like, your local retailer may be able to come close. For example, there's a Best Buy (I know, I know) that will match Amazon in my area. I pay sales tax on Amazon unfortunately. Best buy has a promotion running till the end of this month where you spend $1,000+ and get a $130 gift card. That's what sold me, so now I got to wait for the wife to go to sleep to open the 3010 box. Wonder if she would get suspicious if I offered her an alcoholic drink with some Ambien mixed in
