  1. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    I have an epson 8500ub projector that I aquired and The projector convergence is way off. This isn't a couple of pixels. The projector projects 3 seperate images, one for each of the colours. When I fire it up the epson logo appears in 3 seperate areas of the screen. Any ideas?

    Hi, I wasn't particularly sure where to pose this question so it ended up here. I've spent the past couple of days reading about projectors and DIY screens and a friend just mentioned to me: is your room even acceptable for a projector? So perhaps I am being optimistic but I think it can...

     My Epson 8500UB projector will turn on and show the "Epson" logo.  After that, the screen will go blue and will not detect HDMI, Component, RCA Jacks or any other inputs.  I have no control with the remote and have no manual control.  I can't get the menu to show or anything. It will not power...

     I have an Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 8500UB that I purchased about 3 years ago. Recently it has been displaying the Overheating warning message after anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours of "ON" time. I live close to sea level but still leave the "High Altitude" function turnedon. I use the...

    My 8500UB -- purchased 6-10, thus out of warranty -- gave me a fat pink band at the bottom of the screen, and blue bands at the top and sides. I may try to see if I can get it working again on my own based on another thread but if I can't will probably just replace it -- doesn't make sense to...

    I purchased this projector quite some time ago used off of Amazon. The bulb it came with blew immediately. Stupidly, I held onto the projector until I could get a cheap bulb. From the image, you can see I am having an issue with a yellowish band running down the lefthand side of the image being...
  7. Front Projectors Great Found Deals!
    Available again from the Epson store. Might not be the lowest price ever, but given the scarcity of refurb UB models lately, this one is a pretty good deal. It is still $350 cheaper than the 5010 refurbs at Visual Apex. I would assume quantities are pretty limited...
  8. Dedicated Theater Design & Construction
    First off I want to thank this forum for providing so much great information. I've been reading theater builds and equipment reviews here for years. Hopefully I'll be able to start my own build thread and give back sometime soon. For years i've wanted a dedicated space for a home theater, but...

    I am trying to sell an Epson 8500ub with 1529 hours on the bulb in the classified section. I wanted to get opinions on what people might think it's worth? I haven't received much activity on it for the short time it has been listed. Hard to judge the value of projectors sometimes. You can...

    I have an 8500ub for almost 3 years in july. Moving to a new house in couple of weeks and thinking of replacing it. I have been looking at the top end panasonic and epson, but the benq dlp's look nice too now.... Not sure really what I want. I would like it to be 3d just so I have the option. I...

    I have had the 8500 for several years now, and it's work like a champ... But like always I am looking to tweak this thing if possible...

    My theater room is is approx 14'W & 24' deep. my ceilings are 9'. I have always dreamed of having a dedicated theater room, and I am now building that. The room is in a basement, so ambient light not an issue though the basement is a lookout and there is a window on the side wall in the back...
  15. Screens
    We recently bought a home that has a dedicated theater room. It has a 99" Clarion by Draper screen installed. I also own an as-new 100" Screen Innovations Black Diamond 2 1.4 screen from our former house (in a light-challenged room) and I'm debating whether it is worth the effort and expense to...

  17. Digital Hi-End Projectors - $3,000+ USD MSRP
    The contractors will start next week and be done with my new room by the first week of May. I have been debating a long time and Cedia is just 5 months away. With Cedia I expect more 4K projectors. So my dilemma is do I buy a 2D and upgrade in a year, or do I buy 3D and upgrade in 2 years. I...

    Epson FedEx'd a replacement lamp overnight for my Epson 8500UB. The lamp is "Made in China". The image is nice and bright, but now over the image, I have a swirling gas like artifact on bright white scenes. It looks like visual distortion you get over the horizon on hot days. Anyone know what...

    Transparently this is a major issue that I keep reading in all threads 6100, 8100, 6500ub, 7500ub, 8500ub, 9500ub, and im sure the newer ones 8350, and 8700ub will be affected as well. I just wanted to help sort things out to see if we can actually see a trend, or a possible way to fix the...
