If I kept it on limited the same scene would look blown out. But blacks would also be lighter if it was on enhanced. I’d have to drop my brightness slider down to get it back to normal.

Use "Limited" for home theater content, "Enhanced" if your projector is connected to a PC or game console. See this link for more info; your question is specifically answered about halfway down...

For video content 16-235 (Limited) should be used and for PC's or such like 0-255 (Full) should be used.

Auto will be okay most of the time but some sources may incorrectly report their range.

I have had no problems with Auto myself.

Make sure HDMI Format is set to 'Enhanced' too, for the full 18Gbps HDMI bandwidth to be realised.

Buy what is right for you, not someone else If there wasa 695ES waiting on my front porch, I would not be mad about it...lol

Hi everyone, just wanted a bit of advice please. I brought my 570es; about 3 months; ago, I had issues; with the lens which they replaced and that kept losing focus so they sent a replacement projector in the end and this is; what the panel alignment is like when I first turn the projector on, I can get it to look right with the alignment tool, which i did after a full hour of letting the projector warm up.

Then I have to wait 40 or so minutes after turning the projector on each day until it finally warms up enough and the panels to align again, is this normal? Sony are literally saying they can't see a problem?

Thanks in advance for your thoughts

No 3-panel display is going to be perfectly aligned, when first turned on. Usually takes around 45 minutes to get fully warmed up. In other words, don't even look at the convergence, until projector is warmed up and don't adjust the convergence, until projector is warmed up.

Hi Guys, I am currently contemplating going for a 570es but I was wondering what the likelihood of a newer version is come Cedia in September? I'm not in a rush so it may pay to wait just wondering what Sonys update schedule usually looks like.

Kind Regards

Scott

I would say pretty hi. I believe Sony has released a new line-up pretty much every fall for at least the last 5 years. Maybe not the entire line-up but at least some of the models get refreshed every year.

Thanks for that. I might wait to see what they announce.

As has already been said, don't even bother trying to adjust before everything has warmed up properly. 45mins to an hour is usually a good amount of time.

Once that is done, after switching on fresh again the next time, the settings you made when warmed up previously, should all come back into line after a similar time period.

This year, I think we will be looking at a 760 replacement/update and possibly maybe a 5000 replacement.

The 270 and 570 I think will be around for another year or more yet. They usually replace models every two years, occasionally quicker (like 520/550) if new standards appear or tech etc.

On a 1080p projector, the pixel adjustment is 4x greater for 1 pixel so warm up convergence is far less noticeable. On 4K, its more obvious in the convergence adjustment screen when it's off by 1 pixel. That'd still be only half a pixel on 1080p projector though. I think your options are:

1) Use fine adjustment and compromise. Adjust it first using regular adjustment after it warms up an hour. Then use fine convergence and go back the other way maybe 4 of 10 notches. This way when it powers back up, its 6/10 off not 10/10 off

2) Perhaps if your sony is as good as JVC when it comes to lens memories, you can set up a cold convergence preset and save it and then a warm convergence preset and save it. If you have good enough automation you can auto adjust between the two one at power on and one triggers automatically at 45 minutes.

This only shows how flawed ALL three panel projectors are to be honest. My VW675 never took a full hour to stablize, in fact 15-20 minutes was more than sufficient to normalize temperatures, after that period I really could not quantify, visually by eye , any further correction. My VW885 was also much more stable from the get go , in fact it was hard to realize improvement compared to the VW675. What I mean is , with the VW675, I could visibly see the improvement in sharpness after 15 minutes, with the VW885 I really didn't notice any warmup benefit. WIth the VW675 I would always prewarm the projector to bring the lamp up to full , allow panels to normalize for best convergence . With the VW885 the light source was ready immediately and convergence was stable enough that a warm-up never really necessary except for calibration purposes, then I would warm it for an hour.



At 4K ,especially whith 8K moving forward, three panels will be the Achilles heal for sharpness, and why in fact a single chip DLP will always be sharper and naturally have better motion.

Sony VPL-VW695ES Dynamic Iris Failure

I think I am the first report of a Dynamic Iris failure, though I was able to find similar experiences for the predecessor 385 and 675 models. I knew something was wrong when the DI started making audible clicking noises during movement, and shot a couple of videos to document. Sure enough, on the next power-up, the DI was stuck all the way shut. Very dim, unwatchable picture.

Fortunately my dealer had another unit in stock and was coming to the house for other work, so I'm back up and running. The Paladin DCR is no fun to get re-aligned with a 0.5" border screen!
