Reports thus far are very favorable with regard to a lack red-eye problems and the red-eye reduction system. Many have said thus far that they usually do not need to engage the red-eye reduction flash.

Taking indoor pictures with no flash


If you're in one of the PSAM modes then don't pop up the flash.
You can use the Auto-No-Flash mode by turning the mode dial to the position after the green Auto mode (a lighting bolt in a circle with a slash through it).

How to figure out distance for projector install


Short Answer:
The distance calculation is the diagonal size of the screen times the throw ratio of the projector (x/12 for feet).
If the projector has a physical zoom this plays in as well, throw ratios are usually displayed at 1x or for the whole range (e.g. 82C; 1.2 zoom means 1.43-1.71 throw).

Details:
Light calculations are somewhat inside the scope of this question, but suffice it to say, they aren't fun to do IMHO which is why I like the online calcs for a quick reference. Rule of thumb, the brighter the room or bigger the picture, the brighter the need.

If you don't want to do the calculations yourself, there are hundreds of calculators out there. Projector Central has a good distance calculator that is preset for actual projector specs. I use it often so I don't have to mess with the calculations. Just go to their website and select "Calculator Pro" at the top. It even does estimated light readings (we aim for 80fL because of the bright room environment we have to deal with, but for controlled lighting 30-50 is a good range too.)
There are also apps available on Android and iOS like AV Tools or Alford Calc.

If you want to do precise calculations, you need to know the size of your screen, the throw ratio of the projector and the brightness of the projector (and the brightness of the room) and the reflectivity of the surface (gain).
The latter two of these deal with picture intensity, the fact as your image gets smaller, the image gets brighter; to a point that it can be uncomfortable to watch. The opposite is also true, that as the the image gets larger, it gets darker since the amount of light coming from the projector doesn't change.
And finally, the more ambient light in the room, the darker or more faded the image will appear as it competes with other light sources.

Sony bravia kdl55hx729 3d led tv turns on 3 seconds shows picture than four red flashes


Hello,
the error light sequence that you are seeing is indicating a "backlight error". Most likely you have a bad inverter board -the board that powers up the back-lights behind the display panel. They might be available via ebay if you are a DIYer, or you need to call for sony service.
Good Luck!

No picture, sound works good


Sounds like a backlight fault. Dim the lights in the room and turn on the set. Shine a bright flashlight on the screen, you should see a faint picture. If you do, you have a backlight problem

Comcast remote does not work after dark, works just find in day


I have had the same problem I have two bell receivers one in the bedroom and one in the living room, in low light the remote in the living room would work much like yours, but if I took the same remote into the bedroom it worked fine in low light, the second remote responded exactly the same, the problem in my situation was the TV had a light sensor that adjusts the picture depending on the light in the room, with this option turned off. The remote works just fine in low light situation.

Projection TV when turned on picture is dark can view slight images until dinning room light is turned on


Try hooking the TV to a different outlet fed by a different breaker. Does the problem go away? If so, the culprit may be a wiring problem in your house that is causing the TV not to get enough power unless the dining room light is on.If in doubt, consult an electrician to make sure both the dining room light and TV outlet circuits are working properly.

Using Flash


The Flash is useful up to approximately six feet, after which distance the light is less effective. The Flash is good for close subjects in low light. The Flash is not good to use when taking pictures in large rooms with low light or night / evening scenes. When the Flash is used, the shutter speed is automatically faster to compensate for the light from the flash. This means less natural light through the lens. This can cause dark images in large rooms or evening scenes. In this case, TURN OFF THE FLASH and allow the shutter speed to automatically slow down to adjust for natural light. Your images will be more bright. Be careful, slower shutter also means more potential for blur from motion by you or your subjects.

Pictures reddish or orange


Although normal room lights (tungsten lights) appear white to our eyes, their light is actually much "warmer" than daylight, giving a reddish or orange color to pictures. This happens with digital and film cameras. To prevent or lessen this reddish or orange color: If your digital camera has a selectable White Balance mode (check your camera's User's Guide) and you are not using the camera or external flash, set the White Balance mode for "Tungsten" light. If your pictures are reddish even when you use the camera flash or external flash, the room lighting is overpowering the flash. Try setting the White Balance mode for "Tungsten" and continue to use the flash. If your camera does not have a selectable White Balance mode, use the camera flash or external flash when taking pictures in lighting that makes your pictures turn out reddish or orange. If you can, turn down or turn off one of the room lights (without making the room too dark), or move your subject so that it is not being hit directly by the room lights. If you can, when taking pictures in the daytime, try opening any drapes that might be covering windows. Letting in natural daylight improves the color quality of the lighting.
