What "version" of the bulb is JVC using as warranty replacement these days?

The supply of version 2 lamps ended (for us) last year. New version 3 lamps started shipping in January. They have been out long enough that if there were issues with them, we would be hearing about them.

So how can one be sure he is getting a version 3 bulb? Physical hint or difference in model number?

On my RS40 the bulb blew a few months ago and JVC did send the latest 003 bulb. You can physically tell as it has the metal flapper coming out of the vent hole.

is the 003 much better then the 001 and 002? And is there a picture on the net somewhere to compare which lamp I have?

sander, did you not see the posts RIGHT ABOVE yours? (and 2 posts after the post that you quoted)

The v3, 003, whatever you want to call them, is supposed to be improved over the others and the amount of issues/complaints have gone down with v3 (003).

There is a link in both of the posts right above yours with a picture, but I will make it easier for you by adding the image here. Notice the "fin" in the middle part under the lamp glass itself. That is v3 (003)



Now, maybe you were wondering about 001 and 002 images, but basic concensus is that if it isn't 003, then it should be. Or at least you want it to be, so no fin, then you have one of the "less desireable" lamps.

ARE THE MONSTERVISION MAX 3D GLASSES STILL THE ONES TO GET?

 

When I bought my first 2 pair a while back, the consensus seemed to get these MV3D re: performance/price/reliability. So I bought 2 of them for about $50/ea when Monster had their sales. Now I would like to get another 2 pair of 3D glasses for my setup. The MV3D seems to be discontinued, but pop sometimes up for sale, but usually at higher prices. I was wondering if I should try to get 2 other MV3D or if there are better choices available in the meantime. Key for me is that they are compatible with my existing setup and glasses. Any suggestions/comments?

Can someone tell me if 2D picture quality is the same on the RS40 and RS45 when both have the PK-L2210U 003 version lamp?

To my eyes, but without ever doing a direct A/B, both my 40 and the 45 I own now look identical as far as 2d.

Is the flapper suppose to move around when shaken slightly?



AVS. PLEASE HURRY AND LAUNCH THE NEW WEB APP!!!!

Guys, I can t seem to decide on something:

I have the opportunity to sell my RS45 for a good price. I m thinking about doing this and go for the Sony HW50 that s just around the corner. I m just too afraid of loosing too much black level frown.gif
post #3917 of 4435
When playing your bulbs, evidently a new fad among JVC owners, YOU MUST FOLLOW THE JAMES BOND RULE: shaken, never stirred.

Second, when asking a question about projectors especially one that is just barely out yet and which most people won't have in their possession until it becomes available from other than the manufacturer's store, never use the word "afraid" to describe your state nor ask for a subjective comparison with a conclusion of "too much" or not "too much".

The simple answer and the answer to quell your fears is a "IT DEPENDS." And mostly it depends on you and your set up. And if you are afraid, and clearly you are afraid because you say you are, it will be "too much" for you.

For many it won't be and for some it will be. But its a personal choice.



Asuume one has a very large gray screen, the blacks wouln't be an issue but it might be too dim but then again for an owner of CRT projectors in the past it might still look too bright. Too many variables.

what would you guys think I should set as a rock bottom price on my RS45 with 100 hours on it? Im looking at buying the Sony this year.
post #3919 of 4435
I was thinking of starting at 1900.00 and I have about 300 hours on mine.With
100 hours I would think 2000.00 would be reasonable.
post #3920 of 4435
I forgot to mention Im selling my RS45 with a little over 100 hours and 2 JVC Glasses with emitter. What do you guys think my rock bottom price should be? Im seling to get a Sony 50 here from AVS as im on the pre order list. Thanks in advance.
post #3921 of 4435
$1900 sounds about right.
post #3922 of 4435
How do you find out the total number of hours on your projector? My lamp hours say about 80 but when i was setting up iRule to control my RS45 I believe I reset the lamp counter at some point. not sure what i have but i think it's somewhere from the upper 100 hours up to the upper 200s is a guess. I've used mine solely for movies and I'll be selling mine at some point as well depending on if I choose the HW50 or the RS46 for better 3D.

Thank you for selling it to me smile.gif It is a pleasure to do business with you. Our negotiations were a lot of fun for sure smile.gif
I can't wait to enjoy the JVC. After Epson 8700 it will be a nice upgrade.

Question:

When you put a lamp from a ISF calibrated RS45 in a RS40, can you take over the settings from the RS45 and clock these into the RS40 so there s no need to do a new ISF calibration?

The projector will most likely need to be calibrated again. There's a chance that these units will calibrate differently because of sample to sample variations.
I tried the same settings between a RS45 and a RS40 with similar hours. The RS40 looked like poop.eek.gif

It's definitely the fan making the noise. Normal and high lamp modes are both louder now compared to when I first got the projector.

Regarding my increased fan noise - I emailed JVC support asking how loud (db) fan should be running in high lamp mode. They weren't much help and did not give a answer in the response.

At 185 hrs on the lamp, I'm now having to run in high lamp mode 100% of the time to give good brightness on my 150" 2.37:1 screen. Fan noise is driving me crazy on quieter scenes.

Measured fan noise in high mode with everything else off and Radioshack SPL meter positioned near fan exhaust port - averaging 63 decibels.

Anyone else taken a db measurement of their RS45 fan noise running in high lamp mode? I want to make sure mine is indeed running louder than normal before going through the effort of packing in up and sending it in for warranty work.
post #3927 of 4435
How close to the fan port are you measuring? I can check it with an RS45 here.

Thanks! I had the meter about 2 inches from the front left side port.

Does anyone know the answer to this question?
post #3930 of 4435
I measured 2" from the exhaust port and got 67db with a calibrated mic. I doubt this is how they measure projectors for a db rating. There is no approved method I am aware of. I would guess they measure it more like 1-2 meters away from the projector. I think an average of the 4 sides and top at 1 meter away would be a fair way to do it. Ideally in an anechoic chamber but that's asking a bit much. I did this at 1 meter and got 36db average in high mode. The rooms is 29db ambient noise (not a dedicated space).
