    Hi, Mods please tell me if this belongs in a different section. I wanted to buy a new bulb from my Sony VPLVW60 and projectorcentral has projectorlampsource listed as a good supplier. All the bulbs I have used to date have been original Phillips bulbs with Phillips and some other bits of...

    Is it possible that I have just become sensitive to motion blur. I have noticed it before with 24p material but never really bothered me to a point where it’s hard to enjoy movies. I have been using a Sony VPL VW60 for a few years. Down the chain was an Onkyo receiver now a Denon 3313, then...

    Hello guys, not sure if this is the correct location for this. I bought this projector 2nd hand. It only has about 300hrs on it in total. My setup only has a lightning surge protector on it for the power. It is not on a UPS. I don't eve have a screen yet and have only had it about two...

    I owned an SXRD rear projection Sony TV, and it had the infamous green tint that made me have to get a replacement. When it worked, the picture was stunning, but the whole debacle soured me on Sony products in a big way. A top of the line $4,000 TV going out in around 3 years will do that...

    I just wanted to contribute...It may be a little late since this PJ is a little old (only a couple years for me) but none the less Im doing a remote revamp and I made a spreadsheet of all the SET codes for the VW60. WARNING!!! this is a Macro enabled Spreadsheet their is a VBA module to...

    Hello, I'm a newbie here, my friend is selling his Sony VW60 for $650, they were $4000+ when new. Anyone has experience with this model, is this a good buy assuming it is in a mint condition? Thanks.

    I am just curious as I contemplate my next pj. Those of you who have owned the vw60 and have upgraded, what did you get and how does your new pj compare ? I have no major complaints with my Sony, which I have owned now for 4 years. Certainly however I wished it had more brightness. My...

    I am curious and a little confused. After a couple thousand hours the message came up on the screen saying it was time to replace the lamp. I did. I replaced it with a cheap knockoff. Bad move. The new lamp quit after 600 hours. Just stopped dead. Ok, lesson learned. That is not my...

    When the lamp does ignite, it looks fine. But it doesn't ignite regularly now. The fan comes on. I bought it at AVS in 07. It's been a good performer. I am really not ready to upgrade. The lamp is pretty new.. The ballast? What are my options for service? Southern Califrornia Thanks gents.

    I have an opportunity to purchase a used Sony VPL-VW60 projector for $350. The unit is in need of a lamp (still works-but is dim) which is going to run me around $130 aftermarket or $400 for a genuine Sony part. The owner says there are no issues with the projector other than the bulb and...

    My Sony VPL-VW60 very suddenly lost significant brightness literally overnight--one day it was fine, even watchable with plenty of ambient light in the room to interfere, and then the next day it is totally washed out by any ambient light and not even really watchable with the room is pitch...
