    When I got my Sony VPL VW 50 projector 7 or 8 years ago, there was an official AVS thread for the unit, the first couple of posts of which provided detailed information and recommended settings. Can someone point me to that thread or to recommended settings? After all these years, the projector...
  2. Screens
    Hi, I've been to the end of the internet and back trying to get some info on this screen and projector and I haven't really found the info I've been looking for, so hopefully it is OK that I ask this question (or questions) on AVS. I bought a house and the previous owner left a 100 inch...

    I am going to show my ignorance spectacularly so please go easy on me I have been toying the idea of purchasing a used projector to spice up our family movie nights a little. I intend to use this for movies in a dark room, for movies on Blu-Ray's. Outside of some basic "buyers guide" that I...
  4. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    Hi, I was wondering how would the Sony VW-50 projector stack up to entry level 1080p projectors of today. I have an opportunity to buy a used Sony VW-50 (aka "Pearl") projector. In its time, it was a fairly high end SXRD projector from Sony (year 2006-2008). I was reading a review of this...

    We just moved into a new home with an installed Sony VPL-VW50 so I don't know what has been going on with the projector. The lamp has 70 hours. The restarting usually occurs a few times, 3-5 rounds, before the projector stays on and runs normally. And once it does that, it tends to be...

    I have owned the Sony VW50 and VW60 projectors for many years now, ever since the VW50 came out. I have been through many bulbs in those projectors and have always bough official Sony bulbs. These bulbs have always been available in the mid $200 range. I decided to try a non-Sony bulb this time...

    I know a silly question - but still exists. Change the bulb and wait a year or two to change the projector, or buy a bstock JVC 40/45. I have been out of the projector market/trends for awhile and hence need some candid advice. My environment/habits - dedicated HT room with a Carada 96" 16x9...

    I am having some issues with HDMI and 1080P. My run from my projector to my receiver is approximately 34 feet and I am currently using Monoprice's top of the line 50ft HDMI cable. Everything works great for HD sources like DTV and for any source 1080i or lower but my problem is occurring when I...

    I powered on my Denon 2308CI and my HD-A35 HD-DVD Player, then I powered on my Sony Pearl. It projected the HD-DVD player then a few seconds later it went blank; now On/Standby is lit solid red with the Lamp/Cover blinking red in 3 repetitions. When I try to power it on now, the bulb lights...
