Sony SXRD Projector - Panel degradation issues

Post by mpyw on Thu Jan 21, 2016 5:58 pm

Hi,

Any owner of Sony SXRD Projector here have the panel (optical block) degradation issue that all colours went wrong, un-adjustable brightness, loss in contrast and lousy gamma after just a few hundred hours?

My HW30ES are un-watchable after just 600 hours, and the repair cost quoted by Sony is a whoopy RM14k!!!


The discussion in AVS forum:-

Wow, that is really bad.  Why 14k to replace the panel?  It is cheaper to buy a brand new projector.

My HW40ES still has low hours and I hope it does not have similar issue.  I had bad experiences with previous projectors - they degraded before the light bulb dies.

Hi,

I hv de 55 n so far no issues..
on prblmatic pj's - l do have a JVC hd250 which has the pink band problem..
Nothing much can be done unless plan to spend 'big money'
[hence the 55 - thou it isnt really replacing it cos using both .. at the moment..]
My ol Epson tw700 [which in theory should encounter more problems] was trouble free ..
[well.. at least until l uprgdd to the 250..]

Sighss Crying or Very sad
D

I want to share my experience too, I had a HW30ES... the degration is very severe, too much blue-ish light leakage onto the screen..unadjustable.

I went ahead and bought HW40ES to replace, and I experience same thing happening again at just 350 hours, left side of the screen blue-ish light leakage again ! I can see left side brighter than right side easily. Just bought for few months..warranty still available..I should send back for replacement.

I had this ghost problem with my HW40ES during the second year of use.  Total hours = 83 only.

I sent it back for warranty repair a month before expiry.  The optical block was replaced under warranty, which otherwise would have cost me RM5.3k.  I hope it can last another few years.  If the problem comes back, it is not worth repairing anymore.
