For those with a convergence error... last year I had an RS60 for quite some time. It had about 1/2 pixel offset in green in 2 directions so, say the top and right sides had a slight green fringe while the bottom and left sides had a slight magenta fringe. This was consistent whether warmed-up or cold. Projector was right side up on a high rack shelf.
The original lamp in that projector acted odd at times... starting with a very distinct overall magenta color that would fade during the first 15 minutes of use. But sometimes it would start without the heavy magenta color. At 1100 hours, that lamp blew up while the projector was being used... the picture got dim rather quickly and before I could figure out what was going on, the lamp blew up with a pop sound.
When the lamp was replaced, the convergence error was gone! Seriously... there was NO misalignment of ANYTHING after the lamp was replaced. I was dumbfounded. I have no explanation of how that could POSSIBLY happen, but it was quite obvious.
So, to solve your convergence issue, there might be 2 possible solutions:
1) Remove and reinstall your lamp
2) Hope your lamp blows up and knocks everything back into alignment (yes, sarcasm, irony, etc.)
Just an observation that may help somebody... or not.
RS65 here for review now... will be doing full before/after cal measurements and will also see if Radiance XE-3D can make any worthwhile improvements.
