Just got my Sony 1270Q back from the shop. I really was impressed once again with the picture quality from this 12 year old warhorse, but, I didn't realize how much I missed it until I roughed in the setup and convergence and fired up the Phantom Menace. After about an hour tears were rolling down my face and wouldn't stop... boohoo :(


Funny, this movie never effected me like this before....


Same thing happened last night with Planet of the Apes (a real tear jerker if ever there was one) ;)


This projector is causing some serious eye watering now.


Anyone ever heard of, or had the experience of watery eyes from a FP?



Maybe, I'll experiment more with different resolutions and refresh rates. At the moment it is at the 1280x720p 60Hz which I was using to run my new Sampo 34WHD5 from the Radeon equipped AVS HTPC.


Could something have been done in the repair that would cause this? Should I be doing the crying on the therapist's couch and not in front of action movies?


pass the tissues,

Mark H,

This would be the "emotion" that you should expect, sounds like they got it right. You can take Zoloft for this if becomes a problem. I did the same thing when I first heard DTS. Doug

I was rather moved watching "The Wall" on my PJ. I am a big Pink Floyd fan, and was moved to tears by the experience. Funny, it did not have that effect on a 27" tv. Oh... the sound helped too.. :)

Several times, my friend, several times:


1. Paying Alan for it.

2. Paying tax and customs for it.

3. Lifting it in place in the ceiling.

4. Running it for the first time with Gladiator.

Oh, hey, while you're in the eye watering mode, be sure to watch a chick flick with the wife/girlfriend/new date.


They just love a 'sensitive' guy... (nudge, nudge, wink, wink). They'll think you're sensitive, they'll never need to know the truth...

The first movie Vickie and I saw together was "The Elephant Man" at my house on HBO. I love that film, and it always moves me deeply. That I was moved to tears by this film, really cemented our relationship. She's often said that was the moment she knew we were meant to be together.


If "The Elephant Man" doesn't move you to tears, you're either trying too hard to be macho, or are a potential serial killer.


The first movie Vickie and I saw together in a theater, on the other hand, was "48 Hours", which we both enjoyed as well.

I'm lucky. Vickie loves action movies and I love some really girly "chick flicks" like "Grace of My Heart".

Well, the 1270Q left me with dry eyes last night throughout Bram Stoker's Dracula. It seems alot easier on the old eyes at 800x600 72Hz.


Now what've I got to cry about? :(


Picked up the the widescreen Harry Potter at Best Buy tonite (almost got one with the packaging all in French by mistake). We'll see how this does on the tear factor. No spoilers puleeze.


'Guess when I need a good cry I can always switch resolutions and refresh rates again :D



BTW, my PJ went into Hi-Rez's repair shop one week ago almost dead and came back looking better than ever. When I asked what they had done they said:


- cleaned out massive amounts of dust (yea, thats my house alright)

- cleaned switch mode (whatever that is...)

- cleaned power supply connectors

- reset CPU

- resoldered cold joints on several boards

- calibrated grayscale


All for only $320 (their minimum on a PJ repair)


Nothing to cry about there ;)

Funny, Saturday night I was watching Gladiator...and of all the movies to realize it (because of heavy use of filters in that movie) I realized my G2 settings had to be off!

So like any good tweaker, I reset them to what I thought they should be, threw in AVIA for a quick grayscale cal using the IRE windows, checked brightness and contrast, put in the 5th Element for fine tuning of fleshtones...then went back to Gladiator...at the end I had a tear myself...that's when I knew the pj was closer to correct :)

Now I've torn that pj to pieces, and it's back to the drawing board.

I remember firing up my 1031Q the first time - uncoverged running Jet Moto for PS via composite. Now, a little over a year later I'm doing eye candy. I had no idea what I was in store for back then! Thank God bulb projectors are so expensive!
