Does anyone know if there is a warranty seal that could be compromised if I try to remove the cover on this projector?
It powers up OK via the remote, the lamp comes on and the LED sequence is correct, going from red in standby, to flashing green as it warms up, to steady green when it is supposed to be ready, but I can't get the menu to come up, or any of the lens adjustments. The projector should be displaying a blue field, but it displays only green. I have no inputs connected as we just set it up on a box to approximate a mounting position in the room and to verify if the zoom range will be correct for our screen size. We talked to Sony tech support and they confirm that it needs to be sent back, but being an engineer type and having worked in computer field service for years, my inclination is to open it up and check for a loose board or connector but I don't want to have some hidden warranty seal bite me in the butt if I try.
