My Powerlite Home 8350 is having the Auto Iris error more and more often. It is also out of warranty so I have a few questions.
1) Will Epson actually fix it, and do they have a actual fix and what is the cost or will they simply replace it with one that will have the same problem ?
2) What is an equivalently priced model with the same or better specs in any brand.
I currently have a 10' throw distance on a 100" screen. The projector is mounted 6.5' high and level with the screen is a fairly bright room for day viewing and darkened out in the evening.

Hello everyone, below is all the information about what I will be using:
Room: 18'8 ft by 10'4 ft. Has 8' ceilings. No ambient light.
Projector: Epson 8350
Surround Sound: Bose Lifestyle V20
Screen: Elite Screen 120" 16x9
So picture the rectangle room. On one end will be the projector screen and on the other end will be the recliner couch about 15' away. I would like to put the receiver, DVD player etc.. behind the couch like out of sight. Does anyone have any advice on where the center speaker will go? what if the BOSE system doesn't come with wires long enough for the center speaker and the front L/R speakers to reach all the way to the back of the room. What do I do then? Already got the internet and cable installed on the far wall behind the couch so changing the setup will now be difficult. Any advise would be helpful. Please I'm desperate...

I have an Epson 8350 projector driven by a Yamaha 373 with several inputs including a Roku3. While watching a movie streamed via the Roku3 the normally crisp focus will snap out of focus. Then slowly the focus will return. It seems that the focus is lost when a scene changes but I cannot be completely sure of this.
Has anyone else experienced this and solved it?

I'm on my second Epson 8350 and have noticed a pronounced burning smell, particulary with the first one, which gave us headaches, even after breaking in for ~50hr. I had that one replaced, and the second is not near as bad, so I thought. I have around 70hr on this one and just finished my theatre room to watch soccer and after about 2hr, my wife and I noticed we had gotten headaches and her eyes were burning. This has really turned us off on projectors, as I am wondering if it is very common. From various reviews I've read, I didnt know this would be an issue. Either I will have to go with a different brand or look into a large flat screen. I really liked the big picture, but can deal with the noxious fumes.... it can't be healthy.

I just bought an epson 8350 haven't tried it yet because I am still setting my movie room up.I purchased it because I need the lens shift because I have to shoot picture from an angle.
I have read a lot of bad things such as the auto iris issue and the bulbs going bad issue my question is
should I keep the projector or get another brand that has a good lense shift feature?
If so ,what projector in that price range is a good buy?
