Hi all,
So I was having a problem because my lens shift knob on my W7000 would not turn, now I got it to turn however when fully tightened I can still move the joystick about slightly (i.e. 5%) before the lens won't move.

I looked online and projectorcentral I believe in their review stated that when the lens shift is locked on the W7000, the lens still can move a bit. Another post here indicated it did not move at all.

I wanted to see if the small amount of movement I get when the lens shift is locked is the norm, i.e. if some units have this other than mine perhaps like Projector Central's. Basically when I "unlock" the joystick, I have full range of motion of the lens. When I "lock" it, I still can move the lens slightly (say 5% of full range), but after that it is locked. So I wanted to see if some of the units have this or if there is definitely a problem with the lens shift knob on my unit. Although, if the lens does not sink or anything this might be a non-issue.

I went back and checked this closely tonight. With it fully locked, if I apply some pressure, I can get it to move a bit up and down. It's not going to shift on it's own if I have it locked in that position though...

Do you think it will drift on it's own with your particular situation?

No, it doesnt look like it is drifting so far, and if it does it would only be by 5% or so. I just want to make sure this was normal behavior because something was misaligned with the knob out of the box and I had to force it into the right position. It appears to be working now though so should be okay.

I checked again with the projector on, it's definitely the same behavior you are seeing. It's locked tight, but there is a little bit of play if I try to move it around. It's never drifted on me.
