Any Mitsubishi HD1000U owners out there? - Page 80

post #2371 of 2606
Thanks for your help. I'll try to close it a bit and see if that takes some of them away.

Crutch,
I had dust blobs a few months back on my HD1000U.

Here is a guide I put together on how to clean it. Good luck!!

I was in the exact same boat as you struggling to find help with it, so that's why I put the guide together. I hope it helps.

Do any HD1000 owners have it hooked up to a Pan. BD60? If so, what do you have the "HDMI Resolution" set to? Auto, 720p, or 1080p? I just bought the BD60 yesterday, and I'm trying to get all the settings correct. Thanks.

Jim,
I don't have that blu ray player, but I have tested just about every possible resolution setting on my PS3.

I've tried 1080i, 1080p, and even 1080p/24fps. The manual on the HD1000u has no indication that it can handle 1080p, yet it does. The 1080p/24fps on the PS3 actually displays 1080p/50.

My conclusion, at least personally, was that 1080i is the "sharpest" resolution and 1080p/50 had a bit less judder, but just didn't seem as sharp and the color didn't pop as much. Maybe I should have set it to that and re-calibrated.
Anyway, I go with 1080i.

Thanks. I'm hoping someone here uses the HD1000/BD60 combo to get some advice. I just bought the BD60 2 days ago. I don't know whether to choose Auto, 720p or 1080p. Last night with my first Blu-ray, the player was set to Auto, and the projector was showing 1080i as the the incoming signal. I would have thought the player would choose 720p, since the HD1000 is native 720p. But it must have chosen 1080p.

The problem is vision......

Yours and someone else that owns the same setup may see things quite differently.

So what you need to do is to set the player for AUTO or 1080i output and watch a couple of movies typical to what you prefer to watch... sports, action, drama, etc...

Then set your player to 720p and re-watch the same movies...

What you are trying to determine is the scalar better in the projector or in your player... and your eyes are the only ones that can answer that question.
post #2379 of 2606
Thanks HiHoStevo. Unless I can do a side by side comparison(which I can't) it's damn near impossible to tell.
post #2380 of 2606
Then both scalars are fairly equal in there abilities.

Just set it up however it is easiest for you in that case.

I recently developed a dust blob with my HD1000. Is there anything I can do, other than opening up the projector? I vacuumed the vents tonight, but that didn't remove it. My 3 year "Warrantech" warranty is good until January, and I don't want to open up projector. Thanks.
post #2382 of 2606
Anyone ?
post #2383 of 2606
Jim, I was in the same situation. I ended up opening my unit, but before I did, I did a ton of research.

If you're not comfortable opening the pj, check out the direction of the vents intake and exhaust for the fans. My mistake was vacuuming the vent that was taking air in and I think this is what caused my dust blob.

You may luck out with compressed air or I was even considering covering on side of vents and vacuuming the other - thinking this would help the suction.

Aside from that, I know your unit is 3 years old and you're very close to pulling the pin on a budget 1080p pj, so maybe opening it up isn't all that bad. Believe me, I was scared myself, but as long as you take time and label everything, it's quite easy.
post #2384 of 2606
Thanks Billbofet. Is your PM disabled, by the way? I sent you one about a week ago.
post #2385 of 2606
My bad. I am terrible with checking my pm's. Sorry about that.

I wish you luck getting rid of the dust blob. I know how it can drive you crazy once you know it's there. I even read doing my research that sometimes shaking the unit will loosen the blob. I don't think I'd do that myself.

If worse comes to worse and you do decide to open it up, let me know. I'd be willing to help you out.
post #2386 of 2606
Thanks Bill, but my balls are not big enough to open it up.
post #2387 of 2606
Call Mits Tech Support ... maybe they will warranty the BLOB...

it's worth a shot!

Here's a good plan for you. Wait until the Mits HC3800 is available, then open the HD1000U up and try to fix the dust blob. 99% chance of success, and let's say you do harm the machine, the 3800 will be available to help ease your pain.

Or send it in to Mits and maybe they will send you a 3800 back for your inconvenience!!

Personally I am strongly considering replacing my HD1000U with the HC3800 when it comes out... just waiting to see what Art and others have to say about it.
post #2390 of 2606
Art posted on the 16th that his review of the HC3800 would be up in the next two weeks, so we should have a review next week. http://www.projectorreviews.com/blog...arp-sony-more/

I don't want to chance harming the machine. I want to sell it after I upgrade. Has anyone had any luck getting a dust blob repaired under the "Warrantech" warranty? I'm curious before I call them. I bought their 3 year warranty thru Projector People. Thanks.

Well, I feel very foolish, but I'm also very happy. Tonight I discovered that what I thought was dust/lint inside projector, wasn't. There was a cobweb on my ceiling tile(right in front of screen) with a spider hanging from it. UNBELIEVABLE!!
post #2393 of 2606
Could have happen to anyone, I'm happy it was a easy fix for you.

That's awesome Jim. Good for you. I'm glad it was such a simple fix.
post #2395 of 2606
So am I. If I tell my wife, she'll want me to dust the room regularly.
post #2396 of 2606
My HD1000 has the high pitch color wheel whine. I've searched but couldn't find any answers on how to fix it yourself. It's about 2 years old and out of warranty but only has 1000 hours on the lamp. I sent an email to Mitsu tech support but doubt they'll do anything for a 2+ year old projector. So...I want to see if there's anything else I can do myself. Thanks in advance.

MGS,

I have no idea how to fix your color wheel, but I noticed you said you emailed Mits service. Having dealt with them numerous times, I find they almost never respond. Best to give them a call.

I know it's not much help, but it may speed things up for you.
post #2398 of 2606
I thought there was a Tweek thread on here for the Mitsubishi HD1000U . Can anyone post the link for me? I can find it.
Thanks

I just had to replace my bulb on my HD1000U. The "replace bulb light" was on for quite a while until the projector just shut off. I figure the bulb was dead, get a new one and move on. I ordered the bulb and had someone come in to change it (I know, I know, but I didn't want to screw it up).

He replaced the bulb and nothing, red status lights. So he switched the bulb back to the old one, and it had the same status lights. He said that even if the bulb is dead, it should cycle through. He is going to call Mitsubishi tomorrow, but I wondered if anyone here had any ideas.
post #2400 of 2606
You need to reset the projectors lamp operation time, that is why it won't come on after the bulb swap. To reset the lamp make sure it is plugged up, hold down < > & the power buttons on the pj's control panel at the same time for 3 secs. The status light will stay green with no more blinking red light.
