actually, the jail bars appear even on the Menu, without any signal connected.. i changed the menu background to blue and I can see the faint white vertical bars.. at about 120" wide picture, the bars about about 1/2 inch to inch wide..
I did try a different outlet and without my surge protector.. Same problem..
Epson is sending a replacement projector.
I can't believe that I am the only one who is noticing it and that two brand new projectors have it.. What am I missing? Of course, the jail bars are very faint but quite visible.
