After the case is opened and then reassembled, there is a good chance the gasket comes off of its normal seated position. I also experienced this same situation after receiving my projector back from repair. The rubber gasket simply snaps back in position when pushed away from the lens.

Thanks for the response. My situation must also be connected to a recent repair. Did you push it back your self? I
gently touched it, but not knowing what exactly the purpose of the gasket or how fragile it is, I did not want to tear it. How forceful does it need to be pushed, and where to?

I know it seems rather delicate, but if you move it away from the center of the lens in the direction towards the outside perimeter of the lens you'll feel it just snap back into position.

Worked like a charm. Many thanks!

Well it seems to be my time with PJ issues. Just discovered, after I thought the new lamp I put in had no real brightening effect, that it is a PK-L2210UP instead of a PK-L2210U. The sight I bought it from stated it was the replacement for the RS55, and although I checked the manual to confirm, I thought the 'P' was of not consequence. However, the PK-L2210UP is 275W, and the other 285W. I'm sure they will not take it back after 7hrs of use. If anyone is interested in the 'P' lamp, will sell for 50% of what I just payed. PM me.

As reported, the optical engine in my RS55 had to be replaced, but there is a pink hue push particularly show on white materials. (i.e.: shirts...). I had the unit professionally calibrated, but was told there is a problem with the optical engine. I was out of warranty, and JVC repaired on good faith so I can't go back to them. I have since ordered a Sony 300ES, but was wondering if anyone knows if the pink push can be corrected?

That's unfortunate it. I can only think of two options:

1) Something like a Lumagen 3D mini might help as it will offer a lot more leeway and options into calibrating but it is no guarantee and they are not cheap. Is the pink showing up as a greyscale issue?

2) For the hell of it, I would ask JVC once more as the worst they can say is no. You never know, they might look into it.

Not sure about the grey scale question other than to say the guy who did the calibrating stated he did the best possible

As for JVC, the contact who originally assisted me, seems to have set my e-mail address to 'not accept'. All attempts are deemed not deliverable.

Guess I'm out of luck
