This truly seems to be the case.

I finally got to installing the OSRAM bulb a couple of weeks ago.

First impression: Not as bright as other replacements, but more color and a smoother overall appearance. For the first couple of days I saw color shades that were new, and so far haven't seen any of the putrid green and blue over-saturated color as with the old bulbs.

Other replacement bulbs reminded you daily how bright they were, but this one doesn't do that, except on really bright scenes, which don't happen all that much. It's just a nicer overall presentation. I had to back down the color level a notch or two to keep things in perspective... though I'm not sure why that would be. Also an oddity, the blacks seem to have better low level resolve than before. I haven't changed brightness or contrast levels, however.

It doesn't 'shout' bright at you even though it really is brighter. It's a smoother overall presentation with no part of the spectrum sticking out in intensity.

I have a RS1 HD front projector. It has developed a problem.The projector is turning off by itself after 2 hours of continous operation, It only turns back on after the surge protector is turned off and then on again. I changed the surge protector but is still does the same. There is nothing obstructing the air flow and the filters are clean. The bulb is relatively new(350 hours).

Please advise regarding how to resolve the problem. Does the projector need repair. It has not had any software updates since I bought it in 2007.
Thanks in advance

Although you say that nothing is obstructing air flow, depending on how many hours are on the projector (not the bulb), it may be shutting down from heat because of a buildup of dust and dirt over time.
post #8674 of 8724
probably a long shot, but using too long of screws if ceiling mounted caused this problem. it's somewhere in this thread. you'll have to search.
post #8675 of 8724
To cause that problem the screws would have to be REALLY LONG.-lol eek.gif I think it would also cause permanent damage.

Mine has just done the same and it is table mounted. I am using a knock off bulb (1250 hours) so I think it might be running a little hotter than the JVC bulb. Just put it in high mode a few weeks ago and it seem OK until last week it shut down twice in the same day after 1 - 2 hours. So I put in back in normal mode and it ran for 5 hours with no problem. Try putting the projector in High Altitude mode and Normal power to see if it runs longer.

Just a post to let everyone know that I am currently running/evaluating Glen's Osram bulb described above.
I have an RS1 that has seen 2 JVC bulbs - neither of these bulbs have blown.
The original has 1600 hours (and is now my spare).
My other JVC bulb had ~2000 hours, and started to flicker until I switched it to high mode. I sent this to Glen and it was "converted" to a new Osram bulb.
Last night I did some before benchmark viewings, shut the PJ down, and after it cooled off I installed the new Osram bulb. While the two were out on my counter I looked them over for differences: The Osram is a slightly longer bulb (but still fits well with plenty of clearance in the cartridge). The Osram also appears to be of sturdier construction (sorry - I should have taken some comparison photos). I then buttoned up the PJ for some after comparisons. My early observations:
Dark scenes seemed to have a bit more contrast than the old bulb (placebo affect?)
However this I can say for sure >>> the bright scenes look fabulous. I have never seen the bright Hawaii 5-0 scenes look this bright, vivid and colorful !!
If the lifetime is even close to the JVC bulbs; I will be VERY happy (most of the various OSRAM specs I have found; seem to suggest 2000~2500 hours can be expected?)
Glen was a pleasure to work with, and my early experiences are very encouraging. I'll check back in and post updates every several hundred hours smile.gif

Osram bulb update:

I am now approaching 200 Hrs. on Glen's Osram replacement. So far:
No hiccups at all
and we are very pleased with the image!

I am about to change out my bulb. I'd like to try this Osram bulb. A quick gander at a few past posts seem to indicate that AVS might sell these with housing, and that otherwise we can . . . send our current housing to Glen, where he performs an operation, and sends it back?

If anyone has the pricing for either, or is aware of any other vendor, I'd appreciate the info. Whether here, or by PM. Thanks guys.


On the other topic of cleaning the prism, no smoking environment, in fact a very clean environment in general, I do this once per maybe 800 or so hours, and it always makes a difference. I use rubber end of pencil, microfiber, 99% isopropyl.

Osram Bulbs.

I haven't sent and email to AVS store, nor a PM to Glen, but did see a few shopping results with prices that seem too good to be true? What's the catch?
JVC RS1 Osram Bulbs

At the AVS website, the OEM bulb housing is $329, and it's not Osram either. That's considerably more than what I paid last time for an OEM. Hm. What to do.
post #8680 of 8724
Glad I found you guys!

I just picked up a third-generation AppleTV and I can't seem to get the 1080p input to display. The projector is giving me a "frequency of input signal is out of range" error when I select 1080p to display on the Apple TV settings.

Is this a firmware issue?


Also I have been running this RS1 for more than a year at 720 with a 2d gen ATV without any issues, and the picture quality is still pretty stunning, even with a 1900 hour bulb in it. Likely I will be purchasing the below bulb to replace the current one. Just haven't had the need to do so yet.

I have found these JVC bulbs on eBay for $299:

Brand New Factoy Sealed GENUINE JVC BHL-5009-S Replacement Projector Lamp
Compatible with the following Projectors:
JVC DLA-HD100
JVC DLA-RS1X
JVC DLA-RS2

http://www.ebay.com/itm/260806650733?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

I'll also clean the mirror while I'm in there.

Sorry I cannot comment on the Apple TV compatibility
However; the last time I bought a new JVC BHL-5009 replacement bulb for my RS-1:
I paid less than that, thru AVS sales - you might want to check with AVS first?
post #8682 of 8724
Cool will do, Should I ask for anyone specifically?
post #8683 of 8724
Last I guy I talked to was Jason Turk.
However; I believe anyone can help you out.

(IMO - Unless the Ebay offering was a significant savings; I personally would feel better dealing with an established business)
post #8684 of 8724
How do I reach Jason?
I've never bought anything off the forum nor AVS itself. Thanks in advance for your help.

Ouch!

that's gone up in price considerably since I last bought one. I seem to recall paying around $270.00 ?
post #8686 of 8724
Where did you get it?
post #8687 of 8724
I bought it from AVS about 18mos ago. Seems like the pricing as gone up since then. Makes your eBay find look better?

I am having some issues with the lamp warning light on my projector. I inherited a JVC DLA-RS1 when I moved into a new home with a theater. It was working perfectly until the bulb literally blew out while the kids were watching a movie. They assured me that no one had touched or shaken the projector. When I took out the lamp, there were small pieces of glass in there, and the bulb was obviously blown. I vacuumed out the projector, cleaned the filter, and put in a new bulb (got on amazon from Media Monster 22). The bulb worked great for about a month and now I am getting a warning light while watching. It will run for about an hour, then the warning light comes on and lamp light starts to blink and projector goes into standby mode. I checked the exhaust vents, cleaned off any dust, resecured the lamp door, and still same problem. The company said they will send me a replacement bulb, but I am not sure if the blow out caused damage to temperature sensor or if there may be another issue. I have attached a picture of the inside of the projector. There is a haze on the mirrors and what I assume to be a fuse or temp sensor as well. I will send back the bulb and try a replacement, but if anyone thinks this needs to go for repairs, please let me know. Thanks for any help out there.

I am suspect of the aftermarket bulb.
post #8690 of 8724
You migh want to try turning High Altitude mode on.
post #8691 of 8724
Does that just increase the fan speed? Does it result in a lot more noise? I have cleaned the prism and sensor per instructions by JVC and the new bulb should be here soon.

Thanks for the recommendations.
post #8692 of 8724
Yes the fan will run faster so it will cool the bulb better. I am having the same issue on mine right now and I have a knock off bulb but I am at 1500 hours so got my money worth.

What would an RS2 go for?

I've seen them sell anywhere between $1,000 and $1,400 depending on lamp hours etc. One sold on Videogon a few days ago for $1,400.

post #8695 of 8724
They are still commanding this much money for a 6 or 7 yr old projector ?
post #8696 of 8724
I wouldn't think about paying no more than $800

Yep. I was really shocked to see that last one go for 1,400 on Videogon. I would sell mine but my convergence leaves something to be desired. Depending on hours, I think around 1k would be a fair purchase price.

How about the RS-35U?

post #8699 of 8724
So I've been reading through the thread on bulbs. I have a rs1 that I bought back in 2007. My original bulb worked perfectly for nearly 2800 hours before needing replaced. Since then, I've had only one OEM bulb that was decent, and when I went back to the company to buy one, they switched components. I've ordered several from amazon that cost around $80, and I've had to replace them anywhere from 2 months to 1 month, all less than 200 hours..

What is the cost of the osram bulb replacement via Glenn? I guess the beauty of buying them on amazon is that I can just keep returning them under warranty, but it s a pain in the ass.

post #8700 of 8724
FWIW; I checked last night - I have about 450 hours on Glen 's Osram bulb. Looking good and zero issues. Hopefully he will see this string and comment on current pricing
