I put an image in attachment in natural mode and one in digital cinema.


Anybody ever seen this and was able to correct it?

I'm pretty sure you're projector is cursed. Dude on the left has the rage virus, and chick looks like a vampire from 30 Days of Night, that just stepped out into the sunlight.

I would just contact them and initiate a return for another unit. My unit should get in this week, I'll post the condition once I receive it. Hope you get everything figured out. When the image is actually working, does it look great?

I'm 99% certain that the only check Epson is doing on refurbs is seeing if they boot up. Just got mine in the mail on Friday and this is what the lens looks like, with multiple scratches and a forest of dust. Bonus, it has a permanent green "blob" in the upper left hand corner of the display.

I think all tv boxes output at 60hz, but since I don’t have cable I can’t really say. I’m sure the tech has changed so they might.

This projector can be combined with the HD fury to get 60hz 4k HDR at 8 bit, so there is that. If blacks are important to you get the UB, if you don’t want to add a box to run 4k HDR at 60hz get the 3800. You can’t go wrong with either of them. Black levels can make a big different in picture quality so it’s very hard to suggest one for you to buy. You need to decide for yourself.

Maybe visit a Best Buy and see if you can visually compare the 5050ub with the 3800. The 5050ub is basically a 5040ub with the higher 18gb HDMI limit.
How much of a difference does 60hz Via HD fury make? I looked at there website and It seems to be translated poorly from another language.

I never understood how a projector lens gets that scratched.

I'm about to purchase a 4050 for a basement home theater and I'm looking at 4k blu-ray players.

With the Epson projectors, is it worth the extra $$$ for the Panasonic DP-UB820 for it's "HDR Optimizer" feature, or is something like the Sony UBP-X700 good enough?

For many, the Panasonic DP-UB420 at half the price of the 820 has the same features and equivalent performance minus Dolby Vision is the better value.

I'll check it out, thanks!

In general, how is using HDR with the 4050?

Unfortunately, I have no first hand experience with the 4050. Perhaps those that do will chime in.

Why would you buy the HC4050? It's just the HC4010 with a mount, extra lamp, black case, and maybe some extra warranty. It's got the same poor black levels as the HC4xxx series. For a few dollars more you could get the 5050UB, which has much better blacks, and an 18GB HDMI chip. It may not require a Panasonic, but I'm not sure how the 5050UB's HDR tone mapper compares to the Panasonic DTM.

Or get a refurbished 5040UB, which has better blacks than the HC4xxx series, but still only a 10GB HDMI chip.

To fully take advantage of the black levels of the black level on the 5xxxUB series, the room would need to be treated for reflections.
What color are the walls?

If not that’s your problem because the 5040ub can’t output more than 10gbps and 60hz 4k HDR is more than 10gbps. Max we can do is 12bit 4:2:2 in BT2000 at 24fps.

Most issues are not the projector, but that doesn’t mean it’s not broken. Do basic troubleshooting first, check settings, check to make sure your AVR can do all framerates at 4k with HDR, check hdmi cables, connect your fire stick directly to the projector ect...

Also update firmware and reset setting if your not on version 114. As for your whites that’s hard to say because your projecting on a painted wall. You probably need to calibrate the projector for your grey wall. Every projectors calibration is different and since this projector has 1,000,000 to 1 contrast and very accurate colors the calibration will be different than your other projectors.
When I set match source frame rate in amazon firestick 4K below is what I am getting
I connected firestick directly to Projector

AMAZON PRIME VIDEOS

Refresh Rate : 23.97 Hz
Color Depth : 8 bit 4:4:4
Color format : BT-2020 HDR

Netflix

Refresh Rate : 59.94 Hz
Color Depth : 8 bit 4:2:0
Color format : BT-709 SDR

Disney +

Refresh Rate : 59.94 Hz
Color Depth : 8 bit 4:2:0
Color format : BT-2020 HDR



When I use old amazon non4k firestick picture is definitely brighter than 4kFirestick.

I need to upgrade my receiver, until then what is the best streaming device to get HDR working which I can connect directly to projector?

if i decide to send projector for a replacement will Epson requires me to send the one I have first or will they ship the replacement and give me time to send mine back?


5040 looks inferior to 3100 i have in terms of brightness(3100 is much brighter ) and white colour. just wanted to know if something is wrong with the projector.

The mount, extra lamp, black case, and warranty do matter to us. This is part of a larger basement project and I just don't have the money to go up to a 5050 or 5060. More specifically, I traded the difference in price between the 4050 and 5060 for better in-wall speakers, which I figure will last me longer than a particular projector

I made a deal with my wife that I can upgrade in 3 years. Hopefully by then we'll have more affordable 4k options and even better black levels!

But why not get the 5040UB refurb? It's half the price of the 4050.
You can get a mount,lamp, and still be left with something extra. And have better black levels and contrast.

Join the club. First projector has a nice green blob, second projector actually has **** rattling around inside and dust blobs. Not a chance they check these things.... they only see if they fire up and thats it.

My 2016 Roku Ultra that I got used from eBay is sending Netflix in 59.97Hz 1080p HDR to my 5040. (8 bit 4:4:4 BT.2020). Amazon is 24Hz 4K 12 bit 4:2:2 BT.2020 HDR. I don't have Disney+.


Some Netflix shows look better to me in SDR, so before watching these I just go to the Roku settings and force it to 1080p mode (or you could force it to 30Hz 4K non-HDR mode).


How are you getting audio if your AVR doesn't support HDR and you're plugging directly into the projector? I don't believe the 5040 does ARC.

I use natural calibrated from a professional isf calibrator and I am very happy with the result.
4k hdr is very difficult to achieve a good calibration ( my calibrator had to come three times in order to make it look nice but I think that 1080 sdr looks better and more crispy in 5040ub).

After spending a lot of time with 5040 and playing around with settings I finally reached the conclusion hdr doesn't look better than sdr. I haven't found any content that better in HDR than sdr( bt 2020) via madvr.

With hdr, I can see the dynamic range coming into play... But this comes with a cost of much darker image on the screen. And most of the content that I watched ended up too dark. And I was simply happier with with the sdr image.

With this conclusion for all streaming content I simply set my apple tv to 4k sdr and use match frame rate. And will fall back to madvr tone mapping to sdr when possible.

I have no plans to do a professional calibration.

Can anyone comment on Sony active 3D glasses with the 5040? I have access to some used glasses cheap and since my wife and I are not big 3D fans - I'd like to take a cheap attempt first to see if our minds can be changed. TDG-BR100 for instance.

Panasonic DP-UB820, Yamaha RX-V1075, Epson 5040UB. No-name 106" screen, new one on the way.

Those glasses won't work. You need RF glasses and those are IR glasses.
