It should not move. However, most likely the projector just moved on whatever platform you have it on. If the projector is bumped or moved in any way, then yes it will go out of focus. Because the only way to have a perfect focused image is to have the projector perfectly flat on the stand/platform and perpendicular to the screen wall. If not, ie. projector pointing a little down/up/left/right the image will be out of focus on the corners or middle no matter how much you try to completely focus the image. If the projector never moves and is perfectly flat to the screen but still can not be focused, then it could be bad LCD panels miss aligned. This can happen if the projector has been dropped or taken some sort of abuse. Unfortunately, if this is the case then their is not much that can be done but have Epson correct it. Because this model does not have panel alignment capability for users unlike the Epson 5010-5040s.

I hope that helps,
and hope the projector had just maybe moved?
