New projector checklist

Just ordered my Z2

Been looking through the FAQ's and couldn't find anything so i'll ask the question.

Can anyone recommend a series of checks to do once the projector arrives? If there's any dead pixels etc I want to find them as soon as possible to get a replacement.

My main problem is that I don't have a screen yet as I wanted to try out a couple of different sizes before making a decision.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks

I don't know if the pj has any built in colour patterns, but if you can project a pure white image, and then pure red green and blue, you should see if any pixels are dead or stuck.

You can use a PC to do this via a paint program.

if you go to www.milori.com you can download a trial version of colorfacts which itself is pretty useless, but it will have a rake of patterns that may be of use

Bear in mind standard manufacturer warranties don't cover a small number of defective pixels .. each manufacturer has its' own rules for what they consider an 'acceptable' defect rate and for which they won't provide a remedy.

Thanks... pricejapan has a zero dead / stuck pixel policy on the Z2 valid for only 30 days. So i'd like to find any and get a replacement if there are.

Don't know what Sanyo's policy is, but if PJ can offer a replacement then I guess that's Sanyo backing it up.

Unless he's opted for their "free return" (an extra 3.3% IIRC).

oh yeah, but this %age means you are effectively paying for it anyhow!
