    Hi guys,
    Has anyone found the Service menu on the LPX-500 yet? .. It isn't the same as the Epson TW-100 as there is no Help key to keep pressed down!!...
    Also, has anyone been able to do anything with the Serial port? I asked Yamaha, but they said that "only trained service personnel were able to use it.. blah blah blah"

    Cheers,
    Roy

    Hi Roy,

    No, sorry - can't answer your question but I would like to know as well. Webloader might have some info RE the RS232 port IIRC. Did you want to adjust something specific or were you just wanting to look around?

    Also, do you mind me asking where you purchased yours from?

    Thanks,

    Alex

    I got it from 1st Stop Audio Visual - great service and decent price www.1st-stop.co.uk (ask for Pilkesh)..
    just be careful - they don't do refunds and you have to talk to Yamaha directly if you have any issues. They do have a small demo room so you can see if it has dead pixels or not.. I'm yet to find an Epson retailer who will do that.

    I just wanted to see if I could control the proj. through the serial port, so I could do it all from a PC. All I get from the serial port is a ":" promp and an Err message when I try anything

    I know webloader mentioned that he'd got some info from Yamaha about the RS232... but I don't recall anything more specific. Hopefully he'll pop by and see this at some point.
