A friend of mine recently acquired a NEC XG 110LC (1101) projector, it was supposed to work, but it does not... In standby the display toggles between 00 and EF and won't turn on at all. It is some sort of EEPROM corruption. I haven't seen the machine yet, but the guy assured me that there is no obvious sign of failure on the boards. To my advice he also reseated the boards, without luck.
My next idea would be to try to communicate with the projector through RS232 (I have an old dedicated laptop for this)... What else?
In the meantime I feel myself ashamed, because I should have known this... Although I never had to perform this on any of my units. Also I was checking the manual, and there was nothing in the board level adjustment section, nor in the troubleshoot section. By the look of it this was mentioned in the theory of operation section...
jbmeyer13: Wolfy's Marquee isn't working? Did you spill a pint on it and short the MB?

wolfman: Always the same sarkasm Kurt that's why I never checked in until now. I knew you wouldn't give me a cheerful answer so let you hang for a while. Removed the last part you probably are a decent guy Eye to Eye.

stridsvognen: Wolfman, its768% better thanyour Marquee for sure. As it can actually display a image.

wolfman: So how's the black level on that thing? When the screen is supposed to go pitch black do you perceive it as genuinely black? Like the opening of CARS where it goes on and off pitch black. Or Prometheus with stars against a pitch black space.. or any Sci-Fi

stridsvognen: I have had multiple Digital projectors hanging together with the Marquee, the Sony is actually the first one that i actually turn on and use, so put 100 + hours on it already.

stridsvognen: Its nice to have a new 5000$ digital to show off next to the Marquee, it makes the Marquee look like it worth all the 35000$ printed on the lable on the box.
