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?

Hi, i thought maybe some of you could help me. I need to install a projector in our conference room. Now I know this is the HT forum but the primary use of this projector will be for video, but occasionally we will use it for computer use. Since video is important, I was looking at HT projectors. The room is about 12' x 20' and has no windows. It has dimmable fluorescent lighting. 50% is as bright as it would get when the projector is on. The screen is 70" the through can be from 8-12'
I need to keep the projector in a budget under $1300. The main unit I have looked at is the Epson 8350. I have also looked at the Pro8300 if you think the 8350 isn't bright enough. Thoughts on either of these two projectors for this purpose? Any others I should be looking at?
Thanks in advance for any help you might offer.

Since there is a full year left on my factory warranty I have decided to wait and monitor my Auto Iris Failures being on the lookout for any failure pattern.
In summery a Refurbished unit from Epson is not likely to be any better than broken unit you have. In some cases it may be worse.
Purchased new 8350 in January 2011. I had a few issues but in August 2012, color issues surfaced again so they sent me a replacement unit. Within weeks of using the replacement unit, I received the auto iris error message. It concerned me i might have beed sent a defective unit but decided to monitor the situation. Googled the error message and learned turning it off and unplugging it would normally take care of problem. That worked great for a while but then frequency of problem increased. Now, I cannot get error message to go away - February 2014.
Pros - great picture & features. Cons - lasts about 18 months per unit and replacements are damaged/problematic units - based on my experience and the reviews I've read. Too pricey for such a short life.
I am calling epson and I will report back on my experience.
