The DLPs I looked at were in the range of 2500:1 contrast ration; however, I couldn't find any contrast ratios for LCD projections.  Maybe it isn't a meaningful number.

Maybe later this year, when I've saved enough money to take my Infocus DLP projector to the appropriate repairer. Mark, I agree with what Jonny said about your issue. I would suggest also go through a complete alignment procedure with the projector - also do a quick search on the internet as I have heard of that problem before... Gook Luck Happy
It's definitely the best picture, but anything over 32" is just too cumbersome for most people. Of course, geometry is also a major issue with CRT sets.
Ive said it once ill say it again. CRT is still the best picture on the market. I know that isnt a popular opinion but it is the one I stand by.

Aaron, you have to clarify on "projection" TVs.  Technically, my LCD and most DLPs are also projection TVs.  They just aren't typical projection TVs.


He probably means an old style analog one.

Sorry Mark, other then seeking repair help from a technician, you got me. I'm pretty sure you're smart enough to check whether or not its the connectors or playback devices.

It sounds to me like you had a power surge that fried part of the imaging electronics. It's my guess that it'll have to be replaced. Did you have a good surge supressor in place? I know if it were me and I was spending all that money on a projector anyways, I would also get a UPS for it (uninturuptable power supply) like what a computer would use.

Sorry I wasn't more helpful.

Isn't that backwards Gabe?  I thought LCD had the better black levels.  I've seen both LCD (what I have) and DLP (what a few of my friends have) and I can't tell much of a difference.  The problem for me when I bought my set was that DLPs only went up to 50" and I wanted a 60" set.

Sounds like your projector was subjected to something other then burn in Mark. Because of how burn in works it's impossible for it to happen with a DLP. Maybe a power surge did something to the color wheel or micro-mirror system.

Either way Stanton, DLP is the way to go Very Happy
Thank you Stanton. Now I know what the problem is on my projector - burnt screen marks. It is not bad. Only on the left side of the screen. I'm not sure how I'm going to fix it. Maybe later this year, when I've saved enough money to take my Infocus DLP projector to the appropriate repairer.

Avoid projection and plasma televisions. LCD is definitely the way to go. I too was unhappy to see that my projection t.v. had developed two vertical bars with a slightly different brightness. I now watch all full frame formatted programs in expanded 4:3. My Hitachi handles it pretty well. I may have caught it soon enough since the only time the variation is apparent is during very bright scenes of sky or snow.
Depends on the type of set Stanton.  Some types are proned to it, some are not.  I bought my project LCD because they do not suffer from this problem.  DLPs don't burn in either.  (Burn in is a common term, but it is a bit misleading.  I think the correct term is "uneven wear".)
WideScreen TV set Problems?
I do not have 16:9 TV set as of yet.  My friend told me he got burnt screen marks on his TV because he didn't stretch the image on the TV when he was watching regular TV.  Is this normal?  Has this happened to you? I want one of these TV's but I hate to re-format an image to fit a TV screen it looks to weird for me.
