Anyone else have to do this?


This sounds to me like it is definitely not working right.    (My previous RJVC RS20 also worked this way:   when zooming  and lens-shifting for 2.35, and back, the focus never needed re-adjusting.)

I definitely don't have to refocus. Its spot on every aspect shift.

I got Sherlock Holmes from redbox for tonight so I'll check out that scene. Someone gets thrown from a window? Give me some details so I don't miss it.

This is Post #500 for me. Just sayin!

When Watson's wife is thrown from the train.

Thanks!

Sorry. Everyone voted Wanderlust for tonight! eek.gif

Mike is putting in exchange request as refocusing should not be needed as well. My guess is more than a single problem but who knows.

Now im gonna wait on the monsters for a bit longer since i still don't really know what to order other than children's model with filters for the Sony but don't know with monsters. Im betting the IR emitter will work with the replacement unit.

Watched with my wife last night. Has its moments for sure but overall wasn't impressed.

Monsters don't need filters. Very easy to set up and yes the emitter will work with either or 1000.

Watched this scene 3 times. Nothing strange or out of the ordinary.

I dont know what kids glasses to order other than the sonys with filters. Dont know the monster children model

My emitter isnt working at all with my current unit for some reason so bet it has something to do with what all is wrong with my pj.

Yeah something is wrong for sure.

Thanks all!

Oh no. Monster does not have kids glasses. Sonys BR50s seem to be the only option for kids. Not sure how your Monster emitter is not working?

PlayMemories 4K Edition on a PS3: I've written a one-page "manual" in a new thread: How to set up & use PlayMemories 4K Edition on a PS3 with a Sony VPL-vw1000ES for photos.

I did this write-up after struggling with not only a dearth of information from Sony, but information that was downright wrong. If you already have started using PlayMemories 4K Edition, and you're not getting pictures that are absolutely stunning, that don't keep revealing more and more detail until you're within two to three feet of the screen, you may want to look at it. If you're starting out, this should reduce the three days it took me to achieve good results to a few hours at most, with much of that spent fixing up your photos for transfer.

Thanks for the guide. I rang Sony (premier support) Europe about Playmemories 4K around a month ago and they hadn't even heard of it biggrin.gif
Sounds like hopefully they may have been updated on it now though - will try contacting them again for a code!...

I have the sony emitter that isnt working so will wait to see if it works when get the replacement unit before switching to monsters since I know sony has kids glasses.

Sorry for the confusion.

Check out the xpand UNIversal. Supposed to work with the Sony and come in 3 sizes (sm, M. large). Small are children sized.

Anyone else gotten the 3 red flashing lights for bulb overheating? Just got it tonight for the first time when I was fighting with my HTPC and AVR I decided to switch the PJ off and then on after it had been on for about 30 minutes. It turned green (LED) and opened the lens cover but instead of switching on it blinked off and started flashing the 3 red lights for me. Strange but I guess to be expected I didn't think it would be hot enough after only 30 minutes but know I know. I also thought it would close the lens cover but it's still open. Book says to wait an hour and then try to turn on the machine again. I'm going to see if the lights stop flashing in 60 minutes if not I may have to unplug it and plug it back in to reset it and then try to turn it on... hopefully didn't damage the bulb?! Been a strange couple of days for me in the HT nothing going right since I tried getting the HTPC and testing 4k on the 1000 (which I still havent' been able to do I was hoping tonight I'd get a chance but it's been a no go!)

Cheers

I'd unplug it and try again now. Especially since the lens cover is still open.

Could someone please explain how the panels are aligned in software to correct mechanical/physical convergence errors? Could you also explain how this could be detrimental to the picture?

If the panel alignment goes up to 30, then are you guys sure that going to the upper teens on one of the vertical alignment adjustment settings to converge...will have detrimental results? What if the projector looks sharp with no motion anomolies after convergence? Should it still be exchanged despite no banding and no uniformity issues? Thanks

I don' think anyone is sure.. It was a theory.

Since our convergence problem is exactly the same try the focus issue i was having. Who knows if its related since mine has focus, motion, 3D emitter, and convergence issues. No telling which is related to which tho

On certain test patterns, such as single vertical pixel patterns, you can see odd color shifts with panel convergence (especially zone convergence), but I've not seen it on real world material at all.

I would imagine resolution and motion handling might be affected throug the use of panel convergence, since it must perform all corrections in software. Again, I can't claim I've seen these issues in any real material, but I would think that the convergence controls be best used sparingly. If you're trying to correct full pixel or multiple pixel alignment issues, I suspect the native alignment is sufficiently poor to warrant an exchange.

If that's not your scenario, and you have no other issues, there would be no reason to exchange...

I let it sit for an hour as it said in the manual then unplugged it (as the 3 red LED's wouldn't stop flashing even after 70 minutes) and then plugged it back in and it's back up and running with no issues (I'm typing this post on it in fact - nothing like a 12 foot reply page!)

I've started to notice a strange phenomenon, and I'm wondering if anyone else has seen this or knows what it is. It appears as a small, but bright shiny spot on the screen. It has a mirror like "sheen" to it, like light reflecting off glass. I think it may be a reflection from inside the projector? It can only be seen when seated dead in-line with the projector, and moving ones head a few inches to either side makes it disappear. I also noticed a similar effect at the end of a movie when white credits were rolling against a black background. There was a very faint ghost image of the text just below it, and it also had a sheen to it like what I described earlier. I seem to remember reading something about this in the forum, but can't seem to find it. Is this phenomenon a result of this technology? Anyone seen this or know what it is? I'm assuming there is nothing "wrong" (defect) with my projector.

Looks like a dust blob?

Doesn't the Sony have a sealed light path? Where would the dust blob be? Is this something I can see or diagnose?
Thanks

I'd be curious to know everyone's opinion about the dust blobs. Considering the sealed light path, do you guys think the contaminants are from the factory and just get stirred up during normal use? Or, do you think dust is managing to get into the sealed light path somehow?

Perhaps this is me being naive, but wouldn't it be ridiculous forSony to forego a filter assembly if getting dust in the light path was a good possibility? I have a feeling Sony wouldn't make that kind of mistake. It's a little concerning though...

I've got a blob like spec in the middle of the screen. Can only see it when the screen sends no light at that part of the screen.

The manual on page 76 says that seeing bright points (red, blue, or green) is a normal result of the manufacturing process and does not indicate a malfunction.

I need to play around with some compressed air....

I installed a 1000 locally and they purchased the X104's from XPand in the kid sizes. They work aok, and considering the client for those I doubt super pickiness is an issue.

They are also red which the kids dug, and it makes it easier to find them quickly amongst a multitude of pairs.

Another option.

Sorry for the confusion.

Your unit is likely defective. The way the lens works the zoom and focus mechanisms are fairly close to each other. What it sounds like is somehow when you change the preset mode and it goes to rezoom, the focus is moving with it...almost like they are bound together.

I am curious if you rezoom manually...does your focus change then as well?
