Thanks!


0.65 inch 1080p. Technically it’s a darkchip3 but I think TI has abandoned that nomenclature.

What to do if you find yourself stuck with no hope of rescue:
Consider yourself lucky that life has been good to you so far. Alternatively, if life hasn't been good to you so far, which given your present circumstances seems to be more likely, consider yourself lucky that it won't be troubling you much longer...

So this may be a silly question, and I think I know the answer, but I'll ask and wait for a reply before I put holes in my ceiling

I ask because this projector has an off-set lens, and my old PJ's lens was centered, but...

When mounting the projector, should the lens or projector case, be centered to the screen?

Thanks, Barry

Do you guys have light leak in your units? Do you see a long line of light way above the projected image?
I just received the HT2050A and notice the same long line of light shown in the second image of your original post (attached below) that seems to be a result of internal reflection.


I understand that you got a replacement projector that is better than the original one. Does your new projector still show the long line of light under some conditions? I would like to found out whether this characteristic is a defect or just part of the projector's quirks that we have to accept.

Thanks,
Tony

Definitely not normal: could be a faulty DMD.
RMA for a replacement.

Hello, I bought the 2050a with a 125" Elite screen. I would like to ceiling mount the projector 18.5' feet away from screen above couch thinking it wouldn't be a problem, my ceiling is only 6'9", but doing a dry run the picture is still much bigger than the 125" screen no matter what I do. I assumed I could place projector far away and be able to adjust the size but that's not happening. I checked the projection distance table and a 120" screen has the projector 13 feet away from the screen. Do I have to move the projector 5 feet closer for the picture to fit the screen? Or am I missing something in the menus to make the picture smaller? The zoom is at the minimum. Thank you

Yes, it must be closer.

I got my ht2050a replaced as dust got behind the leans and made spots on the picture. When I received my replacement unit I noticed my firmware version is now at 1.01. I cannot find a changelog anywhere nor the firmware. Anyone have an idea what changed? Thanks!

I have an 2011 Epson 3010 with iris, would this BenQ be better? The 3010 just needs a new bulb.
