And, as far as I know, JVC hasn't made any statement regarding them root causing or solving this problem. So how can you say this is simply solved on newer units? I don't think anything has changed. Regarding your video clip, has even one other member confirmed that it triggered the blue bars on his projector? It might have only caused them on your old projector and the trigger might be different on others.
You don't even own one of these projectors so all you're going on is what you read. Quite a bit of that is confusing and more than just a little is plain wrong. I have over 500 projector hours of personal experience with it. I have done a lot of testing to track down the specifics of the problem and I do understand very well the conditions that cause it. These are actually fairly specific although they may occur infrequently. The test clip conforms to those conditions.
It is completely ridiculous to say the "trigger" might be different and that might cause the problem where the known condition never causes it. If it's THAT different, then it's a different problem. I have over 60 years of experience dealing with electronics and it's problems so I know what I'm talking about.
You've said in the past that it would need 300 hrs to prove it is fixed. While the posts here can be somewhat confusing, I've seen nothing that would support that view. In my experience it happens MUCH more frequently than that. I've seen nothing posted here that contradicts my experience.
While individual experience with 2.07 (and replacement projectors when 2.07 alone did not work) is limited, there are enough separate reports (all positive) to add up to a fairly convincing body of evidence. Remember that people don't post as much when things are fixed as when there is a problem. And, although an individual might not see the problem for some time, one person in a body of users will almost certainly see the problem within a few hours.
Am I 100% convinced that the problem is solved? No, but I am up to 98%.
It is one thing to be realistic and quite another to be pessimistic. Certainly, realism demands that one look objectively at both sides of an issue. Pessimism results when one always over emphasizes the negative side of an issue.
Are you SERIOUSLY considering purchasing one of these projectors? If you are, are you waiting until no one reports ANY problem for an extended period of time?
