What happens when you plug it in for charging?Hi, Guys
I have a problem with my MP-CL1, i just took it from the box and when i tried to turned it on the both lights power and battery got on (power got white solid light and battery got orange solid light) and it never turned off... it is been three days already and i can't turn on the projector pressing the power button.
There is any way to solve this problem?
There is any way to hard reset the projector?
I tried most of the troubleshooting from the booklet and the troubleshotting from the Sony Support website.
Please, guys i need a help!
You're right, there's really no comparison. A properly calibrated 9" gun crt projector will absolutely demolish the picopro for image quality. Heck, my old 7" gun 1080i rear projection did as well.You're comparing this:
I'd like to see the reviews showing "poor ansi contrast", got any links?
1/2 millionth of the image persistence of a typical TV is huge. Even plasmas do not have that low image persistence, not even close.
Despite all this, the main reason I think this projector is a waste of money is because you're better off putting that money towards a Rift instead, if you are a gamer. VR is 1000000x more impressive than a projector. I game on a 138 inch DLP image and VR blows the pants off it, hands down.
That said, between a 138 inch DLP image and an old plasma, guess which is better? DLP. Even though the blacks suck in comparison, if you're OK with 1080p resolution it's going to be way cooler to have a 138 incher. I used to own a plasma until I bought my w1070 then it collected dust for 6 months before I sold it. You can get a w1070 refurb for under 500 bucks now, that I consider a far better deal and wiser purchase than a plasma. Much, much more fun to game on a 138 inch screen, plus also great motion handling and low lag.
The MP-CL1 seems improved in this regard.What difference does image persistence make if the image makes your eyes bleed?
Ansi contrast can improve perception of details, the sony may have all the ansi contrast in the world, the 360p resolution is going to obscure any such detail: http://www.kguttag.com/2015/06/01/celluon-laser-beam-scanning-projector-part-1/
These are my own photos. Sony on the left, LCD on the right. Obviously, pixels are not going to be as sharp as on an LCD or plasma, but I think it's fairly within the realm of 720p resolution.Where'd that come from?. If that's true, I wonder what else may have been improved.
Alright, perhaps I jumped the gun a little
Looks more like ~650x650 to me.These are my own photos. Sony on the left, LCD on the right. Obviously, pixels are not going to be as sharp as on an LCD or plasma, but I think it's fairly within the realm of 720p resolution.
Not likely. I have the PicoPro (fairly identical unit) and asked Celluon about defaulting to HDMI as mine is wall mounted too.Has anyone figured out a way to have it default to HDMI input after turning it on? It's kinda annoying to always have to select that input while it's mounted to my wall.
I've noticed stuttering while wirelessly streaming to the Sony from Windows or Android, but haven't noticed it when using HDMI.Can another owner confirm if they have a regular stutter in movement with their unit? It's most noticeable during constant smooth motion, for example in this motion test:
in my case the stutter happens every second or so. I notice it in games too.
Thanks for checking. Good to hear that your device is behaving again.I've noticed stuttering while wirelessly streaming to the Sony from Windows or Android, but haven't noticed it when using HDMI.
Also, I want to happily report that my MPCL1 is working fine right now. After several months of refusing to power-on despite being charged, it powered-up, streamed right from my PC (which never worked before) and powered-off politely when asked (unlike earlier, when it would refuse to power-off and I needed to rely on the 15min no-action auto shutoff feature).
If it goes screwy by DareDevil S3, I might have to through it out a window.
I'll have to check again to try and be sure. I love the UFO site for all the cool things it lets you check (I played with it for quite a while trying to see if a TV that claimed 120hz support actually handled 120hz..it didn't BTW).Thanks for checking. Good to hear that your device is behaving again.
