I didn’t realise it was 3D printed but did think the body felt a bit unusual when I opened mine. When I think about it though, I’d much rather they spent all the production costs on the optics, than spend half of it machining the body out of a block of aluminium.

That's an excellent point. I didn't pay all that money to have a lens that could take more physical abuse, lol...

It's all in Vegas.

Or maybe not. I guess there is a weight advantage. Plus arguably you're less at risk of serious harm offering up a piece of plastic than a block of machined aluminium.

Nahhhh... Vegas.

NX7 arrival

Hello. Total newbee to JVC projectors. Can someone tell me how to flip the image following a ceiling mount? Also, I have this cute little purple doughnut on my screen. Has anyone seen this before?

Call up the Menu then go to the installation icon. It should be in there. Third icon from the left at the top of the menu.

Got it. Thanks! Have you ever heard of the purple/pink Circle? Another issue.....I switched sources to a blueray disc. The image and control labels are inverted? I have the Panny 820.

Wink Issues with NX7 arrival

Ok. So here I am with my shiny new NX7. Thanks to Tom Bley, I was able to flip the image over for my ceiling mount. The image flipped, however, all the writing on the images are backwards. Like the mirrored image. Can anyone suggest a remedy? I was on the phone with JVC tech support and I described my issue with the Purple/Pink ring and the inversion of text. The tech person I spoke with assumed that I have a defective unit. Someone pleeeeez tell me she's wrong!


Ok. I'm a dummy stumbling through my new toy. I figured out the inversion issue. Now, I need to focus on the Purple/Pink ring.

It sounds like it's in rear projection mode. Find the setting for front projection.

Yeah, your not done yet. You flipped it now you have to reverse the image. Go back to the same area and try some things, you'll get it. Not sure about the purple donut as you call it, that doesn't look good. They will replace it.

That's what I did Tom. Thanks for the quick response. This little ring is freakin' me out. I hope I don't have to return this thing. I just removed my old BenQ mount and all.

Using polymer results in a housing that is just as strong ( how strong does it need to be ? ) but weighs a whole lot less. After all, my Glock 17 polymer frame has lasted 20 years and untold rounds. This case just needs to hold a lens.

A speck of dust blob perhaps? Try to focus and refocus to see it the purple “donut” gets any smaller or bigger. Put a white piece of paper in front of the lens for easier observation. Whatever cause it, that’s not normal. Get JVC to look at it or get it replaced.

Good luck.

I have thought about getting a new projector and upgrading from a previous JVC model. Reading these threads it seems it makes me wonder if it is worth waiting for things to settle down. I know people with problems often post more than those who are happy but something seems wrong this year.

1. Arrow received two review samples that were bad and is still waiting for replacements.

2. Only one full review by Chad B has been posted.

3. Where is Zombie? He said that he would receive his unit last week. He is not usually quiet. Wonder if he got a bad one.

4. Cine-4 Home usually gets units first, He posted a short review of pre-production models no tear downs or reviews of shipping units.

5. All kinds of other issues with some units while some seem fine.

6. Where is Kris Dearing with his review. Silence again.

7. Projector Reviews & Projector Central have posted or said noting. Very unusual.

I hope that I am wrong and overreacting but all these things have made me decide to wait a while before making a decision. It is a real pain to get a bad unit that weighs so much and have to send it back for a replacement.

These projectors are in short supply, so reviews will be slow in coming. That said, the early owners reports I've seen have all been very positive. There are a few defective units ( some due to shipping damage no doubt ), but folks with good projectors love the picture.

I realize that they have been in short supply and I know that many people love the picture. That being said I would have thought that JVC would want to get units into the hands of reviewers immediately. People need specific comparisons to make educated decisions. The fact that many love the projectors and that they are in short supply still does not answer some of the questions. I know that If I was in a position at JVC I would have made sure that Arrow and a few others got replacement units immediately. It seems that there was not enough Beta testing.

lol, that Glock isn't printed.. if you've ever seen a 3d printed gun, they are usually good for a few rounds before failure...

And the weight, lol, it comes with this thick steel plate that weighs more than everything else put together, haha, so I don't see weight as the issue.

BUT, as you say, how strong does it need to be? I just found it interesting as I have not yet seen a production item (let alone a very high dollar production item) that was 3d printed.

Plus it is fun to point out that a $9,000 product is made up of about a nickel's worth of plastic filament and some glass, lol.

On a serious note, it wouldn't have influenced my decision to purchase it because the community here has given it such stellar reviews and I trust my dealer.

Yellow would be sat in the blue light path. Magenta would be sat in the green light path.

Day 2 of checking out the RS2000 and I am still amazed. What a fantastic device

https://soundcloud.com/aniv-das/home-3m4a-1

Does anyone have this rattling sound when on high lamp mode (put your volume to the max as my phone think its ambient noise and tries to cancel it out) the rattling noise like something inside is shaking (the fan blowing in high RPM sound is normal).

Dealer is aware of the issue and working on a replacement when possible.

Screen recording of a youtube video (not proper settings but you get the idea):

For what it’s worth, I just received my second RS2000 this week. Just finished testing it. It’s just a perfect as the first unit last week.

Both have perfect convergence out of the box without any adjustment.

Neither units have any DI noise which had been reported in some of the first shipments.

JVC US seems to be doing the right thing by opening each unit and inspecting before shipping to customers.

Both projectors have the issue where using the iris in “auto” (dynamic mode), the dynamic gamma adjustments are causing white to turn yellow, but this should be an easy software fix. Manually closing the iris all the way has no effect on white, so it’s not a hardware issue with the iris itself.

Both units are extremely quiet and the picture is outstanding. The lens quality on both units is extremely good which makes me wonder if I will even keep the RS3000 I have on order.

Compared to my aging RS600, the image was more similar than not. The DI on the new models seem to be less aggressive than on the RS600, but I personally prefer it that way. The DI on the RS600 could be easily seen and distracting, resulting in me rarely using it. The DI on the RS2000 seems to be almost seamless (except for the slight color shift of white to yellow which hopefully will be fixed soon with a firmware update). The 4K image of the RS2000 is better than the previous eshift image of the RS600, but in a side by side setup, all this did was confirm how well the eshift handles 4K content.

All in all, I believe JVC USA by taking the steps to inspect every unit, has helped minimize the number of issues in the USA, that have been seen in other countries.

1. Arrow received two review samples that were bad and is still waiting for replacements.

2. Only one full review by Chad B has been posted.

3. Where is Zombie? He said that he would receive his unit last week. He is not usually quiet. Wonder if he got a bad one.

4. Cine-4 Home usually gets units first, He posted a short review of pre-production models no tear downs or reviews of shipping units.

5. All kinds of other issues with some units while some seem fine.

6. Where is Kris Dearing with his review. Silence again.

7. Projector Reviews & Projector Central have posted or said noting. Very unusual.

I hope that I am wrong and overreacting but all these things have made me decide to wait a while before making a decision. It is a real pain to get a bad unit that weighs so much and have to send it back for a replacement.
You are not alone in your "doubts", they apear to be valid.

Sadly, I fear that JVC may provide Arrow with "cherry picked" production units that JVC has gone over with a fine tooth comb because of the previous disasters of batting ZERO, for ZERO in two out of two different model production units.

JVC literally can't afford for Arrow to receive a third defective projector = "three strikes and you're out". Therefore, what ever Arrow reports, finds or concludes may be suspect because the projectors he receives probably won't reflect reality since guaranteed, most customers new projectors won't receive the same level of scrutiny and "quality control".

So far this roll out of JVC's highly anticipated 4K projection line has been a pr disaster. Just read through the owner posts; problem, defect free JVC 4K projectors have been the overwhelming exception to the rule. This doesn't bode well or inspire confidence in potential buyers.

Sure you have defenders and those downplaying the potential seriousness of the situation here on AVS: ("all new production units have problems, it is to be expected"...etc.) but their excuses are suspect because there's "big money" and profits at stake.

Anyway we shall see what we shall see, only time will tell. That said, a lot of potential JVC 4K buyers, like myself are going to sit this one out.

The purple ring looks like dust inside the optical assembly. You have to ask for an exchange as that is a defective unit, sorry.

I will just say I am glad I sat this round out after my perception of everything I've read. My original plan was to sell my 790 last summer and get a 2000, but that would have been a loooong wait and who knows what kind of unit I would have received. These units feel like they were rushed IMO and needed more time/testing. Im sure they will turn out great eventually, but I'd be really annoyed right about now if I had a DI that was unusable among other things and it seems like an unusual amount of defective units out of the gate needing a swap.

Also still very curious why Zombie hasnt reported back.
