Panasonic PT-DW6300US with ET-DLE055 DLP PROJECTION FIXED-FOCUS LENS 1

I have a few of these projectors (Pt-DW6300us) and they work great. I have a venu that does not support the throw... so I purchased the recommend lens (ET-DLE055) from the manual. Installed said lens and can't get a clear picture beyond 6". The standard lens works great. And according to the manual for the projector the lens install should be plug and play? I know this is old school stuff but does anyone tried this and am I missing something?

 

Thanks

Ed

IIRC correctly these are a button on the front to release the lens then turn to the right and slide out. Replacement is then push the button in, line up a lug on the top of the lens with a groove, pull the lens in and rotate to the left.

 

I have it in my head it is possible to either:

not to insert fully before turning or

Line the lug up in the wrong place.

I'm trying to remember back to 2011 for this so the details have left my head.

 

I think there was only one fixed focus lens and for our 12x8ft screens the throw was a little over 3m or stacked vertically on a 8x10ft screen (portrait screen/ landscape projectors) th ethrow was 2m. Again from 10 years back.

Thanks for the reply... The lens for sure is inserted fully (as it locks in). I have a call in to Panasonic to see what they say...no reply yet. I have to get this to work (or find a cheap projector with ultra short throw that would do a 220"@ 13.5' image)

I remember there being a tricky bit to get wrong, Maybe it was just the rear position we had to cope with due to the flight case arrangements.

 

Just to confirm; are you homing the lens before changing it?

That's what it was (homing).

WOW !!! if all else fails read the manual.

 

 

Thank you for all your time and help.

The WOW is on my side. it is about 10 years since I last handled one of these and even then it wasn't a regular thing on someone elses kit.So glad to have been of help.thumbup.gif

 

 

For what it's worth, at this point in time I have no idea whatsoever how to home it, I'd have to find a manual for that...
