I still have the problem of the vertical "band" of pinkish blurry color on the left edge of the picture. It didn't start or with the issue, just appeared one day. Does anyone have an idea what could be causing this, and how I can get rid of it? That's the only downside to this great projector.

I can't remember if it was horizontal banding or vertical banding that responded to turning the projector off for a few hours.

Fabricator: My Sony is just as quiet as my Pro8100 was.

There was a fairly recent post a few pages back discussing bouda.

Edit: I believe he was using the binoculars to get a close-up view of the screen while back at the PJ adjusting focus, etc.

In space, no one can hear you scream . . .

i think it had to be unplugged for a while, most just unplugged it when not in use. this is what i do, but i have never had banding.

quiet = cool. while i do not wish to replace mine. if i had to, i guess $2000 issn't terrible.

i got lucky and found the posts about bouda kinda quick.
what i ssaw was started in post # 9314.
i remember thinking, while he was on here = dude, that is a volatile region. you are lucky, and that may not last long. turns out i was right.
and he had a nice setup iirc.

I had the horizontal banding temporarily, but it resolved itself.

This is a blurry vertical region of coloration that's only noticeable in scenes with light backgrounds like the sky, or a white wall of a building. The image is clear in the link area, just tinted.

Bouda and I way back when, developed a pretty good friendship based on not just our enthusiasm for Home Theater, but we found other common ground as well .. He was a strong believer in Syria and he loved his city of Damascus, hoping that someday a more Democratic way of life would evolve ..

Prior to the fit hitting the shan, he and his family lived in a gated community, not much different from what we have in the USA .. it was walled off / had security cameras / etc .. their lives were as normal as anyone else with the normal things we all do .. he had a good job, etc .. in one of our last communications, he was preparing to evacuate his family and himself .. the danger they faced developed in less than 48 hours .. within 2 days, he and his family became, essentially, refugees and lost pretty much all he had spent his lifetime building ..

Sometimes, I think we lose track of the fact that the many that have been directly effected by things of this sort are just ordinary folks, living ordinary lives and trying to get by .. just like most of us do .. they do not expect, nor do they plan for, total disruption .. they just want to live their lives in peace ..

It is a lesson in learning that things can fall apart quickly and unexpectedly ..

i sure did like him and reading what he had to say.. i sure do wish him and family well.

and yes, things can and do fall apart. a car accident for example. i am waiting for my life to fall apart, and it will.. almost a miracle that it hasn't already. most people take things for granted, i don't.
