I definitely do not want to deal with refurb roulette on the 5040 either. Just reading about how many people have had to swap theirs out is ridiculous. If I wanted to spend 5k+ I would look at Sony or JVC but that is not my budget range at all so its the 5050 (max budget), used 5040 or 4010 (which I have kind of ruled out as the 5040 seems a fair bit better) or I stick stick with my 4 year old Epson 3000 and do w/o.

For once I am being real stingy about spending money on my HT - crazy I know. Guess I need to hope someone puts the 5050 on sale would love one right at $2500 if possible. I missed the ones at $2799 which isn't tremendous but every little bit helps.
The 5050's are still for sale at $2799. You didn't miss it. Everybody has them at that price.

Been very happy with it.
Thanks for the info John. Are you playing a lot of 4k content on it ? And any HDR content?

Anyone have any ideas for me or a setting I could maybe change? Unfortunately can't mount it back any further.
Is this for a regular 16:9 screen or scope? For 150" (16:9) screen you are well within the throw range at 19 feet.

Have been sitting on about a dozen 4k UHD's while trying to sort out my mount for my A lens but still having fun watching bits and pieces.
Great HDR using some of the settings in this thread.
Harpervision is a great start but Nielvm's UHR and SDR settings worked the best for me with a little adjustment.
Blue Planet looked superb.

Where are nielvms settings? I'll give them a shot. They must be newer and not added to the document

This recording is the fan noise, followed by power off so you hear the lens close and then the fan noise slow down and stop. Does yours sound like that? It's loud enough to be bothersome.

Hello,

I have exactly the same issue.

Can some other people confirm this noise is NOT normal?

@ComradeBrehznev : did you manage to find a solution?

Thank you very much

If you look around pages 555 and 558 you'll find Niel's settings. He did two ,the second tightened the first and those worked better for me with the black level adjusted.

It should be 150" 16:9, I just measured it and its around 136x78 but at around 19 feet the projector doesn't use up the whole 78", it can fill the whole 136" but doesn't seem to stretch the image enough for up/down on the full 78".

The Epson calculator lists a throw range of 14' 9.8" - 31' 0.9" for a 150" 16:9 screen.

At 19 feet the 5040UB accommodates a screen width of 13' 11.3" - 6' 8.2" and screen height of 7' 10.1" - 3' 9.1". A diagonal screen size from 191.9" - 92 ".

Is this a brand new projector or purchased used? If used, try resetting to factory specs - page 120 of the owner's manual.

I bought it refurb from the Epson store. Did the reset, seems like its because I have to do -20 on Keystone that it shrinks it and won't fit.

Different issue but I can't seem to get HDR to show. I'm using a gaming laptop with a 1050 ti through HDMI to my Yamaha TSR-7850 to the 5040UB. In the screenshot below it shows MadVR saying there is HDR but the projector not showing HDR and I can't seem to get the Nvidia control panel to show the "full" range instead of just limited?

-20 keystone? Why in the world do you have to do that? We need to see your setup.

Can you change the refresh rate of the pc to 24ghz and see if that changes anything? Not sure that it would but because of the limited bandwidth on the 5040 hdmi port it may. Also I don't know anything about that Yamaha but can you get hdr to a TV or anything else over the same port on it? The reason I ask is because there was an hdmi range setting on my friends Sony receiver we had to configure to show hdr

See attached two photos of how its mounted and how the image looks with 0 keystone. For me to get the picture to look line up the edges, it needs around -28 keystone.

I have the refresh rate set to 24hz in Nvidia Control panel and the native resolution like my previous photo shows so that doesn't seem to help. I tried looking up in the manual on the Yamaha but can't seem to find what to change if there's a setting to adjust. https://usa.yamaha.com/files/downloa...om_U_En_B0.pdf

It says the Yamaha supports 10 bit + HDR; https://usa.yamaha.com/products/audi...850/index.html

@filipp2442 ,
your projector should be mounted with the lens vertical and parallel to the plane of the projector screen.

You don't want to angle your projector like that. Rather you should use Lens Shift to lower the image, under the focus menu.

Keystone is generally bad for image clarity, and text readability -- don't use it, or use it minimally.

Archae is spot on. Center the projector to the wall its on. On both y and x axis. You do not want any tilt or yaw. Then you can use lens shift to center it on the screen.

Secondly I'm sure the Yamaha can support it but it may say something in the manual. I can try to check it tonight but maybe reach out to Yamaha support and ask

Ahhhhhhhhhh thank you guys so much! Yes I fixed it on the ceiling and now it shoots the full 150" with 0 Keystone after some adjusting.

Ok let me see if I can call Yamaha now. So you think its a Yamaha AVR issue and not the gaming laptop?

Dumb question.. Is HDR enabled in Windows? It's not in the nvidia control panel.

I was able to find HDR/WSR to enable on the windows Display and if I enable that it looks like HDR is enabled but it still shows "limited" under the nvidia control panel dynamic range.

If I change back the Nvidia Control panel to use default color settings but keep HDR enabled on windows the projector shows Color Depth 8 bit + BT.2020 HDR(picture 1). If I keep HDR enabled on Windows and change the Nvidia Control Panel to 10 bit, 4:2:2 and "limited" under dynamic range since it doesn't give me an option to do "full" the projector says 12 bit 4:2:2 BT.2020 HDR.

I'm confused now if I should leave it on one of these(Picture 1 or Picture 2) or if I still haven't figured out how to get full dynamic range + HDR + 10 bit + 4:2:2

Limited is what you want. That setting has nothing to do with HDR. That is setting where your black and white clipping points are. PC signals generally use Full Range 0-255 for 8 bit and video uses the Limited Range 16-235 in 8 bit Video. 0 and 16 are the encoded black levels for each and 235 and 255 are the peak white levels encoded for each type of signal.

This signal you say you’re getting is what you want to use:

“12 bit 4:2:2 BT.2020 HDR” in Limited Range for the HDR video.

10 bit 4:2:0 BT.2020 HDR is what it’s encoded at anyway on a UHD Blu-ray Disc or through streaming like Netflix, Amazon, etc.

Limited traditionally kills the black floor it seems to me?

I switched mine to full and liked it better, because blacks were actually black. But I’ll admit to having 1% of your video knowledge Dave, so maybe it’s some other setup option I have wrong that makes me like full better than limited.

I switched mine to full and liked it better, because blacks were actually black. But I’ll admit to having 1% of your video knowledge Dave, so maybe it’s some other setup option I have wrong that makes me like full better than limited.

Well the source and the display have to be using the same mode, so if your source is sending full and you put the display at limited then you may have issues.

I haven’t used an HTPC in a long time but I know with some PCs you do need to send Full and then set the display accordingly. I think XBox is the same. The most important thing is to make sure they match.

Just an Oppo 203 set to 4k with the Epson doing the tone mapping as per Hapervision or Niel's settings.
Both seen to think that the mapping in the recent Panasonic players don't add much if anything.

Would you guys send this refurb 5040UB back? This is my fourth refurb. The color uniformity is off on this one. Am I just being too picky? Do all of these units have these types of issues and people just don't notice or care? Epson keeps telling me every refurb they ship goes through high quality control and should have no issues, same as new - but I can't be that unlucky... right?

It's noticeable on a PC desktop slightly, as it turns pinkish the on the right hand side. I can't see it in a game, but I can see it on avsforum, or on my PC desktop, or on my DVD player's home screen.

Post 301 has pics.

Im debating between a 6040 and a 6050..... Am I correct in assuming the 5040 will not play 4K HDR content?

The 5040 can play 4k with HDR, it has a chipset that will not accept 4k 60f. The 6040/6050 has a chipset that can. If you pair the 5040 with the UB820 it will play UHD discs with great HDR tone mapping for less than the 6040/6050. Streaming on the UB820 is good, not GREAT.
