Hi, if the other HDMI input is working, you may want to consider picking up an HDFury Integral 2. it will allow you to run HDCP 2.2 content on that input. (source -> AVR -> Integral 2 -> projector)Greeting all. I've run about 650 hours on a Sony VW-1100es with zero problems once I learned that Input 2 is the only HDCP 2.2 compliant port. I went up to the room where the projector lives the other day and found that the projector no longer recognized the input. Through trial and error and another HDMI cable, I can say the the Dennon AVR is correctly outputting and that the projector works on Input 1 with a new cable. the only thing that seems to have misbehaved on the Dennon AVR is the port for the Sat/Cable.
So I'm thinking that some type of surge must have occurred.
So it leads to 2 questions.
For Repair, does anyone have advice about something local to DC (I Live in Northern Virginia) or somewhere to ship?
Once she's repaired and back in place, is there a way to shield or protect the HDMI ports on the projector?
Many Thanks for any advice,
The cost of out of warranty repair could be quite expensive, if the parts are even available considering the age of the VW1100. You can send it to the company below for evaluation / repair quote, this is Mendtronix that fixes JVC's, Sony's, etc.
The main issue I see is the HDMI ports are directly connected to the main board which was very expensive. This photo is when I had the VW1000 updated to the VW1100.
keep us posted, I recommend option 1 to try first.
