Hi, i have problem force my media player (zidoo Z9S) to send a 10bit signal to Sony, when i chose [email protected] YUV444 10bit or YUV420 10bit in setup, the player says this TV does not support this format, it let me chose it, but still sends only YUV444 8bit. What i am doing wrong? Could a old HDMI cabel cause this, i was able to run 12bit 1080p 60Hz without problems on it.

Looks like a HDMI cable limitation. I'm able to send to my 295ES, [email protected] YUV444 12bit HDR without any issues. Get an HDMI cable that is labeled "Premium Certified" as only those HDMI cables are certified to pass 18Gbps. Most likely your old HDMI cable is capable of 10.5Gbps max.

Also, make sure on your 295ES you have HDMI Signal Format for HDMI 1 and HDMI 2 inputs set to "Enhanced Format" and not Standard Format as Standard, which is set by default, limits the bandwidth to 10.5Gbps.

Thanks! Premium HDMI 2.0 18Gbps cables (1m+10m) ordered.

What is your screen size? How much did you shift the lens?

94" and I have it at the exact same mount as my previous HW50 so almost no shift.
Only thing different now is that the VW270 (295) is larger so it hangs a bit lower than the HW50, about 8 cm or so, so negligable IMO.
Just curious if there are some other owners that could post a screenshot, if there the menu text is razorsharp I am going for a replacement.

You should push for a full swap, that is a long time especially if they are saying it may be over 30 days. You could reach out to your dealer as well to see what they say.

Agreed, but Best Buy wouldn't exchange (even though I was just beyond the return time). Technically I wasn't a Platinum member when I purchased, although I am now. So, the part finally came in, but it didn't solve the problem so I'm now waiting for another part which pushes me back a couple more weeks. The estimate time now is sometime in early March...


UPDATE: Received my repaired projector back, so one month from start to finish. Both the light unit and power source were replaced.

I have a similar issue with my 285es in the upper left, although less than you. I always thought it was my lens shift because I use a moderate amount of horizontal lens shift. It is mostly toward the edge and almost unnoticeable in real life content.

I've gone through 1 285ES and 3 295ES projectors. All of them had a small quadrant (1 Sq.ft.) that would be less focused than the rest of the screen, and it is always near the edge of the screen. This is likely within margin or error for these lens. I'm curious how uniformly sharp the ARC-F lens is on the 995ES, but at $35k it's probably a law of diminishing return at that point.

My 285ES has the best lens, but I also noticed text looked more processed to make it look sharper when I compared it in the same living room with my 295ES running side by side. I think Sony became less aggressive with Reality Creation this time around.

If you're worried about 3d, future proofing, and good blacks, look elsewhere.
Hey markmon, I'm reading the Sony and the JVC threads investigating options for upgrading to a 4k projector. I read your entire response comparing the 295ES to the poster's Epson projector. I was curious what size screen you would consider "smaller" in a light controlled room where the 295ES would perform well.

Also curious what projector you'd recommend that that would meet future proofing and good contrast goals. It seems like the Sony and JVC projectors are having problems right now.

Thanks

I think all the native 4K projectors are on equal footing when it comes to future proofing right now. I think the 295ES is max 1500 lumens and about 1000 lumens low lamp so you're going to want it on a screen up to maybe 120" perhaps smaller. I think the N5 is a better deal as it adds the dynamic iris and with it the dynamic contrast as well as 300 lumens more light output.

Thank you for the recommendation. I'm currently using a 110" 16:9 AT screen so that fits within your recommendation. The room will be light controlled and while I don't game at 4k or run a computer I'd like to be at least a little future proof, if possible.

Hi, strangely even with the new cables (particulary the 10m cable with looks very solid) i am not able to get higher bit rate as 10bit, even if i set 12 bit as preference in the players EDID, it always shows 444 (both YUV or RGB work) 10bit as output (the player does not support YUV420 with 12bit, and when i choose YUV422 12bit, the output is YUV444 10bit). Can you see diference between 10 a 12 bit input on your projector( as in the actual picture)? So i know if its worth striving towards...What imput looks the best to you?

My 295ES reports YUV444 12bit HDR with Panasonic 820 and YUV422 12bit HDR with ATV 4K. Most likely your 10m HDMI cable is the culprit.

For what it's worth...

The features on the VW295 are nearly identical to its predecessor, though not entirely. Perhaps the most significant upgrade is full compatibility with 18Gbps material, enabling full-quality playback of 4K/60Hz/10-bit/4:2:0 HDR sources. (It can also accept a 12-bit source, but all internal processing is done at a maximum of 10-bits.)

They also added a color dithering feature with the "Smooth Gradation" setting. Another very minor change is the removal of the ES logo on the exterior shell for the 295ES... I liked that ES logo.

Pressure Best Buy to send an email to Sony, that is ridiculous. You would not be asking BB for a swap, just support. A dealer should not just be there just during the return policy Did you ask Sony for a swap?

They said if the repair went on too long Sony would swap, but they have ordered another part and will try that route first. Having heard of other people who have had the issue even after a swap, I figure I might as well see how the new part pans out. Just letting people know what they are in for if they have the issue and trying to gauge if this was a problem with the early models. Not sure if the new part is the fix, or if it was incorporated at some point.

UPDATE: They say it is fixed and both the power supply and optical unit were replaced.

I am in the process of selecting projector & screen for a basement finishing process. I have always liked Sony and am definitely leaning towards the 295. My only concern is that I'm planning a 135" 16:9 screen and will likely be throwing from about 17-18'. This will not be a dedicated theater environment. I will have some ambient light from about 35' away - nothing near the screen. But I will want to use it for sports and general TV viewing during the day. Will this PJ be bright enough at that distance? How much gain would I need to make it workable? Or do I need to look at another PJ entirely?

Thanks in advance for any thoughts.

My problem is that I couldn't even find a JVC DLA-RS1000/NX5 two months ago when I needed to pull the trigger and as it turned out I got the 295es for two-thirds of what the JVC costs now and while I have no doubt the JVC has a better picture it was wasn't a better deal for me, not even close. And this isn't a Sony vs. JVC thing; It's a pocketbook thing lol.

I had the same yellow bar in the corner as you. If the entire optical unit needed swapped to fix it, im glad I got a replacement unit instead of trying to fix it myself. I was thinking it was the blue dichroic mirror just needing realigned, and these mirrors are separate from the optical block. But now that yellow bar issue seems to be more difficult to fix than that.

Hi. I replaced my HW40ES for the 295ES using the same Peerless PRGS-UNV mount kit I was using with the 40ES. For some reason I can get the 295ES to align to the screen. I think it will need to be move a little back. My screen is a Silver Ticket 120 inches. How back do I need to mount the projector to be able to fill the screen without using lens shifting if possible? My room is like 17 feet from wall to wall where the screen is located. 2nd row (my main seats) seating is like 12-14 feet from screen.

Any help?

Why are you not using lens shift? It doesn’t affect picture quality.

I'm trying,. but for some reason I can get the projector aligned with the screen. It is not a trapezoid image but it is not properly aligned. However when using the 40ES it was properly set using the same location and same ceiling mount.. maybe the mount is not good anymore.. not sure on that. Is there a recommended ceiling mount for the 295ES? Or does the PRGS-UNV should work ok? Or maybe the Chief RPAU Universal Projector Ceiling Mount is a better option?

Can you take a picture? I'm sure your mount is fine. "It's not properly aligned" just isn't enough information for anyone to actively help.

Here is one picture.. For some reason I can get the outer box to aligned with the screen no matter what I do on the mount it will never get properly on the screen. I'm not an expert on this things.. so maybe I'm doing something wrong of course.

I believe you need to twist the projector to the right until the left and right vertical lines are equal length and straight up and down (the image will be off the screen of course) then lens shift the image back to the left onto the screen.

I agree, it appears your projector is not aimed straight at the wall but at a slight angle. Rotate it by tiny steps until horizontal green lines become completely parallel with top and bottom of the screen.

I think he may be also asking about the outer box and not being able to get them equidistant on all four sides. This is due to the new 4K Sony, being a true 4K resolution projector (not UHD) having a 17:9 wider aspect ratio and your screen being 16:9. Your old 1080p Sony Projector was true 16:9 so it filled the screen equally.
