    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.

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.

Hello I have replaced ink to the printer and i have this error num 10000160 do you have solution to this problem. I try to reset without results. Itzik

Many of the Epson printers ink cartridges have a sensor thatallows the printer and the associated software knows when to replace theprinter ink cartridges (even when the cartridges have ink within them) and whenthe printer needs to be cleaned. You mayreceive error messages if that sensor is faulty. In that case you shouldreplace that sensor. Hope this will help you. Good Luck.

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.

Picture adjusts from bright to dark every few seconds and with scene changes. Very annoying

The TV may be in Dynamic Mode - which would cause the screen to change brightness.
To change this you have to go to the picture settings and change it to Normal mode or cinema mode etc.

Epson stylus DX 7450 doesn't print black

Hello, This can be FIXED. I'm not trying to be helpful. I'm here to FIX your problem.

You want to make changes to the printer settings to once again print in Black and White or Grayscale mode by going to Start Menu, Control Panel, Printers. Right click your printer and select Properties. Now make the changes to everything prints Black and White or Grayscale. This will make the change effective system wide as opposed to what you did which was for a single print job in a program.

Now, unfortunately, you will still get an error message that your color cartridges are empty anyway because they are.

To disable the error message do this.
Press and Hold the Stop/Reset button for 6 full seconds and then release it? Use the one Mississippi method of counting.

This will disable the empty cartridge error on most Epson printers.

Let me know of your results as I am here to FIX your problem. I'm not here to be helpful. I will work with you until this is FIXED or is now FIXED. OK? Use the comment box below to let me know your results.
