Hi all,

I have two 1000 Sankyo`s & have just bought the 2000H model.

Having checked over this projector it looks new, however when I played a standard 8mm through it the distance scenes looked out of focus, so I put one of my 1000 lenses on it and viola all was well. Has anyone ever had this happen? The lens works perfectly well with Super 8mm, very strange. I do cine to DVD transfers so I made no mistakes.

Regards,
James.

Hi James... I have found that these Sankyo lenses are susceptible to fungus and/or can get cloudy. Sometimes the cloudiness can be subtle and difficult to detect. However being that the 8mm image is smaller and requires more magnification, any defects in the lens shows up more than on S8mm. Try cleaning the lens to see if that helps.

Thanks Janice,

Will give it a try, do you know of any other lenses (better) that can be used?

Hi Janice, I just ran a St8mm film through my 1000 with the suspect lens in and it worked perfectly. Seems the only answer is leave the lenses where they are, I can`t think of any other explanation. BTW the only reason I bought the 2000H is the lamps for the 1000 according to my supplier (A1/17) are no longer viable to buy from Fuji as they have doubled in price, & the replacement lamps he can get are not as good. Anyway I`m very happy with the 2000H it`s awesome projector for the job.

Kind Regards,
James.

The 2000H is a superior machine to the 1000 and a good choice for realtime telecine transfers. I believe Sankyo did make an upgrade lens...but difficult to find. The standard lens should be fine.

Hi Janice,

Thank for taking the trouble to reply, I`m sure your right about the lens. Can I ask one more question do you know how to get the lens apart, because it looks like there is something on the in side, which I can`t get to.

Kind Regards,
James.

I'm not a lens expert...but here's what I do. If you look closely at the each end of the lens holder you will see 2 holes. The holes on the front of the lens are difficult to see...they look like tiny notches. There is a proper tool to use to unscrew the casings...but I use a pair of calipers. These pics should get you started [Smile]

Hi Janice,
Your a star, it worked perfectly.
The calipers slipped and I took a little bit of black paint off of the back lens case, but that's no problem, it was on really tight, probably never been off. I really could not get
the front lens off, so I cleaned it from behind.
Best Wishes,
James.

That tool is called "Spanner Wrench."
