    I have exactly the same issue. The projector works fine for an hour or so.then the "cinema filter error" message comes up and i can't change modes. I get the feeling it is a thermal issue because as i let the projector cool i find i can watch for another hour or so. The lamp only has 400 hours on it.

Projector will not switch between eco and normal modes

Hi imustafa

Sounds like the lamp may be on its way out... at least is low on output.

Can only view image in a very dark room.

If you need it you can get the user manual on this link; check page 29 - brightness setting adjustment just to be sure this is not the problem. check page 36 - lamp mode - try high if not already set on it. Check page 42 - cleaning the filter - this can stop the projector functioning properly, but i don't think it's the problem in this case If the image is being projected exactly as normal, apart from the brightness, then the problem is most likely a failing bulb, despite the low hour count. Just possibly (but unlikely)there is a power supply problem that is not feeding enough voltage to the lamp, only way to tell for sure would be to either get a meter on the lamp terminals, which looks practically impossible with the lamp in place, (possibly will give a reading without the lamp, but the terminals may be disconnected from the power when the lamp is removed), or replace the lamp. Are there any flashing lights or error messages at all, does the projector seem hotter than usual, is the fan running as normal? could you actually see any error messages on the projected image if they were there? try really hard to read them if you think there could be something there. Try a different input source, unlikely problem but possible. Especially in smoky environments the lens can get quite a thick layer of grime on the outside - easily cleaned off gently with some vinegar and soft paper towel/soft cloth. This made enough difference on a similar one in a bar near me to give them 3 months more with the same bulb. Worth a try. If you need to source a bulb you need Sony LMP-E180 there appear to be no cheaper substitutes, you can get one direct from sony uk on this link; These lamps are often cheaper from the US even with postage, if you can find a dealer who will send you one, check this link for some ideas; I got a lamp for a similar sony projector sent to spain a few months ago, saving about $280!!! - I'll keep trying to find the details of the company I used, no luck at the minute. Hope this helps, post back if you have any more info :)

Epson powerlite home cinema 8100 problem with picture

Dark pictures after a lamp change normally indicate that the lamp isn't aligned properly, or that it has been touched with bare fingers and caused a black mark, or it's an inferior (budget) lamp.

The temperature sensor light is flashing on PowerLite Home Cinema 1080. How do I reset the temperature sensor without sending it to be reparied by an authorized Epson company.

Fist thing you need to do is check all the filters.
Take them out and use a vacuum cleaner on a gentle **** to clean out the dust.
Use the brush attachment also go around the projector and de dust all the grills.

I have the same issue. the light just beneath the power light is flashing red in one second intervals. I called Epson and they said that it was an internal issue. I think the apeture isn't opening...

I've seen this problem many times. You can get this status from two causes. The most common being the Error 08 - Cinema filter. There is a pinion gear inside the motor housing that begins to slip and fails to move the filter. I have successfully pulled the gear and put loctite gel on the shaft where the pinion sits and let it cure. After the bold is complete, the gear no longer slips, the filter moves, and the pre diagnostics passes.
The only other solution is to replace the motor/transmisson assy.

The second is error 0A Auto iris error. Not as common but both give the same result.
