I am always late to the party. I finally stepped up to a JVC RS540 from an Epson Pro Cinema 4050. Even though it was a refurbished, I felt it would provide me with a taste of what everyone has been talking about.

I have about 60 hours on the unit and am seeing a somewhat unsteady light output. When I watch a movie it seems to get a bit darker and then will lighten back up again. This is basically with 1080 content. I will look at 4k material tonite and see if it does the same. All my settings are the same as when it was delivered. Does anyone have any idea about this?

Thanks
Curt

Not quite. JVC decided to produce a few more RS540's, so not discontinued yet. :)

Are you seeing this on everything you are watching or just some things? If not on everything, then doubtful it is the projector. If seeing it on everything, try turning off the dynamic iris.

Thanks Mike. Just played some 4k and did not see it but then again I didn't watch for all but 10 minutes. Seems to come into play after about 30 minutes, so will report back later after I watch a movie.

Next time you see it, switch off the dynamic iris.

I turned off the dynamic iris and that seems to have cleared the problem. Thank You.
 I have a lot to learn yet. :)
