My Epson 3010 projector just arrived! - Page 66

post #1951 of 1982
Anyone found a good way to have OTA ATSC tuner to connect with epson 3010? I was looking at channel master, boxee, tivo etc, and they are either very expensive or most of the unit seems to be unreliable or burn out in 2-4 years. Thanks in advance..

and how well does vudu 3d works on the epson 3010?

I guess you get what you pay for? Maybe adding a cooling fan might help for those that run hot? Did you check out? http://www.avsforum.com/t/179095/the-official-avs-hdtv-stb-synopsis

Where on Best Buy's site do you find those deals by the way?
post #1955 of 1982
each store has clearance online, I found mine there in Durham area. When I actually got to the store they did not have it physically in their hands. they ended up selling floor model to me at huge discount.
post #1956 of 1982
Ok, very good.

I'll tell you - Epson can't sell the 3020s fast enough! Right now most online stores are out of stock (even though they say "in stock). Apparently Epson didn't sell as many 3010s . But the word has spread!

Makes me hard to find a good price, though.

I think I may go for a used 3010e - maybe the improved 3D isn't worth it as these prices .

I am new to improved projectors but this is a beutiful projector. I have to say 3d is impressive, and there is limited improvement with incremental value for the projector. I just saw my friend HW50 on stewart screen, it was not that improved from my 3010 on elite screen. I find the shutter/iris noise annoying so I may have to call their support but otherwise this sure is a winner

I sampled 4 different projectors before I settled for 3010: Optoma HD66, Optoma HD33, Epson 3010, Acer 3D. I have to agree with you that 3010 is physically a beautiful projector among all and overall best value.

Also offlate I completely switch back to the Epson glasses (got tried of dead battery on the monster glasses) and am glad to observe that the ghosting I used to see a year ago is not there anymore and these glasses definitely give a much better picture quality in terms of color and brightness (as Epson would have calibrated their 3d for these glasses).

Falafala, have you tried the ps3 glasses? Their on sale at Best Buy for around $13, usb rechargeable. Not as comfortable to me, but a nice price, to have an extra pair or two for guests. Also, there is a little bit of background glare, but I've used 'em several times and for that price, their pretty good image wise.

Yes I have those and hate them due to huge discomfort on the forehead and also are noticeably dimmer than epson's and also they add a green tint. But they are a great bargain for guests. I probably will get a pair. Thabks

I bought 3D RF VIP glasses from Ebay. And i must say they improved 3D quality and works little more bether than my old MonsterVision Max 3D glasses. They cost about 70 $ with free international shipping.

I just bought a EH-TW5900, which i think is the european model name for 3010.

It's great and beautiful! Thinking about one thing..

When I used my previous old projectors with 1024xsomething resolution, I've been used to that long cool-time period when turning off the projector.

But this projector goes off instantly when I press the powerbutton from remote? I found some info about Epson's "Insant Off"-feature, but not a mention for this projector about it even in the user manual. User manual only says "when you turn off the power, wait until cool-down is ready and unplug the device".

But there is no cooldown? I wouldnt even mind if the projector did cooldown for 30mins, its not even loud!
post #1965 of 1982
Hi,
i think there is some seting on this.
post #1966 of 1982
in response to the one with the image issue(Blot/Blob) on the screen. One of the 3LCD panels of the projector might be broken,. if I were you try to call Epson support regarding that one. check your warranty also. its not an issue with the lamp, the lamp is only a light source. so check with Epson Tech Support.
hope this helps

Hi there, did you check the menu settings?
Press the Menu button on the remote control.
Select Settings and press the OK button.
Select Lock Setting and press the OK button.
hoose from these options:
■ Child Lock to disable the Ppower button on the
projector’s control panel unless it is pressed for
about 3 seconds. Since you can still use the remote control to turn on the projector,
you may want to keep it away from children’s reach.

If you turned on the Child Lock, turn off the projector and let it cool down. The Child
Lock takes effect after the cool-down period.

With a half more year to go before my 2year epson warranty expires, I would like to know what issues other long time 3010 users are noticing.

I for one am seeing the intensity fluctuating in some bring scenes in some movies. I don't see it all the time in all movies. I turned off the IRIS and still see this once Ina while.

Anyone noticed this or other issues?
post #1969 of 1982
I'm not a long time Epson owner, but my 3010 has 1700 hrs. on it. It's still plenty bright on my 120" screen for 2D and 3D. I am noticing lots of crosstalk in 3D, and bright pixels have a light blue haze around them (noticeable only if I am close to the screen). I tried LCD panel alignment, but this didn't help. I'll have a new 3010 on Monday so I can see if these issues are isolated to my aged unit only.
post #1970 of 1982
Hey guys,

Yesterday I visited a friend who ownes the TW6100, the new model (in USA: Epson 3020). I have the TW6000 / 3010 for almost two years now.
I was blown away with the difference in 3D. In highest 3D Brightness-setting, I saw zero crosstalk. At my place I have to set it on the lowest brightness to minimalize ever-present crosstalk.
This thing was sharp!
Now that I know (almost) the same hardware is capable of a picture like that, I'm bringing my 3010 in for repairs. The difference between mine and his was ridiculous.

Also, I heard no iris at high speed; with my unit I can't enable the function because of the well-known loud grinding noise.

I'll miss him while he's gone.. but I hope Epson is gonna help me out here..

Yes, I noticed this with my first 3010 also. I don't want to start a stampede of 3010 owners asking Epson for repairs or replacements, but if only everyone knew how good a right 3010 can look.

I believe thats not what I asked. Got no children to mess with the buttons.

I was wondering why my projector goes power-off instantly when I press the power button. There is no cooldown period at all. When the power button is pressed, after 1 second the lamp is off and so are the fan.

I found only little info about "Epson's Instant off-feature". But there is no mention about it in the user manual, it only says things like "unplug the projector AFTER the cooldown period is over." - suggesting like there should be a cool-down time in this projector. But there is not. It's very strange that there is no mention about this, even by googling I didnt find any info about my EH-TW5900 having an "instant off" feature.

I dont see how "child lock to disable power button on the projector's control panel" would enable the cooldown feature, what i was asking.

I've had two 3010s and both powered down instantly without a cooldown/fan. However, if you try to turn the unit right back on after powering off it will run a cooldown before the lamp turns on.

lots of crosstalk means that your lamp has dropped lumens and if lumens are dropped the crosstalk becomes visible. What happens with the replacement?
post #1975 of 1982
Hi. There was a significant difference (improvement) in Crosstalk between my old and new units. The new unit Epson sent me had 0 hours and had only been turned on and off twice according to the service menu. My old unit had 1700 lamp and 2300 real hours. The new unit's iris is dead silent, but the picture isn't quite as clear (there is more haze around bright pixels). Surprisingly, the new unit is hardly brighter than old one.
The 3D is amazing. I thought that the flying fish scene from Life of Pi would be a challenge but the new 3010 got it right.

I also did my 3010's alignment and great results came out as my Red was out and i did it and found that my picture has become more sharp and clear. So how come, Epson just send these projectors out in the market without having quality check, but anyways thanks to these forums as great people are sitting here to share their findings.


I want to know the other DIPs in the hidden menu which are off at the moment. Can someone wants to take risk or I should be the one?


Also about monster, i taped my sensor exactly same position as i understand from yours, between the lense and the body and taped there but i get out of sync issue for one second every 5 minutes or so, why is that. Do you face such issue, or is there anything i can do in monster's setup?

Does this procedure work on 8350? Thanks
post #1979 of 1982
I have the Epson 3010 that I have had since January of 2012 with 1900hrs of lamp life. A few weeks ago it developed a yellowish spot in the bottom middle of the screen.. Just called Epson and they are sending a replacement. They said it would be a refurbished one, but with a new lamp. What I am now wondering, does the manufacture warranty start over with this new projector or does my warranty end this January? I really don't like to get refurbished products as a lot of times they aren't fully fixed. I once had an iPod Touch, it broke within the warranty got it replaced, but it was refurbished. That one broke a little later after the warranty ended so I was out of luck. Would like to know if this can happen to me with the projector.

Err... you're not suggesting that a 3010 can be tweaked to work as well as a 3020... right?
