Hello, I have an issue with focusing the Panasonic PT-AE3000. Im not able to focus the image over all screen. For example If I focus image at the right corner image at the left side is blurry. If I focus it at the center image is blurry at the sides. The screen is straight and the projector is not angled. It looks like some issue with lens. I would to fix this. If Im watching movies it doesnt matter so much but If Im working with notebook Im not able to read the whole screen..
Any suggestions please?

You most likely do not have the front of the projector parallel with the screen. It should be. Once it is parallel with the screen, you can use the lens shift of get the image centered on the screen, then you should be able to focus the whole image on the screen.

Also using lens shift can degrade focus, the more lens shift in use the more the focus can be degraded.
