Not sure if you know this but to engage smart eco, you select smart eco then press the blank button on the remote pictures goes blank then you press blank again the picture returns noticeably dimmer. Took me a while to figure that out.
A shelf is a great idea. It was tough to mount it by myself. Next time I am going to have to have a spotter. Guess I am weaker than I used to be.
I may have to try the fury linker in the future, but I dont have many 4k discs. Since my old projector was a 3D JVC DLA-X55R, I had been going out of my way to buy 3D movies. Now I need to build a 4K collection. Before reading your post that it was light engine problem, I had been changing my settings to see if it was some compatibility issue. It was actually turning on without that checker screen earlier today. But after being off for the last 8 hours, this time the LED engine didnt turn on at all. Reboot fixes it, but it sounds like its on its last legs.
Just curious, do you like the Smart Eco mode over the normal mode? I get that Smart Eco adds dynamic contrast, but the normal mode just seems punchier at least on paused images.
Here are a couple more pics of this projector, while I have it. These are in smart Eco.
