    Do the fans on the Z1 normally speed up and slow down when it's being used in theatre black mode?

    Thanks,

    Thought mine was doing it the other day but it turned out to be the fan on my PC, which I had inadvertently left switched on! Had me worried for a while, could it be anything else in your room? I always run mine on half bulb brightness, much quieter.

    Mine's speed becomes inconsistant when the room heats up - speeding up and slowing down every few seconds. There's a service tweak that might fix it but I haven't got round to trying yet.

    Thats exactly what mine seems to be doing. Once the room heats up a bit the fan speed increases and descreases most of the time. What do you know about this service tweak?

    Thanks,

    Here's a post from the AVSForum in the states. Not sure if it's the same problem though...
