Hi, I have an older 62927 (4-5 yrs old?) that's been having a problem for a couple of months now. I haven't had a chance to diddle with it and thought someone here might be familiar with it. Specifically, the top edge of the image appears to have a dark shadow skewed across it; from 1 edge it's probably about .3 inch and goes to about .5 inch on the other side. It doesn't seem distort the image other than give that section a dark, almost black, cast to it. It is annoying that's for sure. I did a forum and faq search and it seems as if it might be a mirror problem but can't be sure. Maybe someone experienced can verify it? And since the unit is out of warranty, I believe, is there a way to fix this out of warranty? Is it necessary to call a Mits repairman? Or is this self-repairable? I'm a computer tech so I'm able to some stuff and even solder if necessary but would like to minimize the work if possible. TIA!
BTW, I did replace a bulb on this unit about a year and half ago; the bulb supplier gave me instructions to the effect that I should leave the bulb cover off as it helps shorten the life of the bulb. They said it wouldn't cause any damage to do so. So I did leave it off (still have it handy though).
Also, it doesn't look like the shadow changes if I have a letterboxed movie on or the screen in letterbox format or switch it back and forth. In full screen mode or in Expanded the shadow pretty much stays the same. It's almost as if there is a physical problem with the screen being bent or something similar.
Ooops, sorry had the wrong model # and posted in the wrong thread. SAT!
