I just mounted my 8350 and the picture is fuzzy with a green outline around objects. When I view the Test Pattern, the pattern has a double line, one green and one red. I'm assuming that this is related to my fuzzy picture. Is there an easy fix? Is this the dreaded convergence issue that the 8350 is prone to? Thanks.

I'm a total newbie to projectors, so please forgive my ignorance. I'm also trying to use the search function, but so far, no luck.

wow. I've never seen a convergence that bad. This problem cannot be fixed. You need to return to Epson to get an exchange.

Thanks for the replies. I emailed them yesterday and they indicated that I'll likely need to exchange the projector after talking to their diagnostics group.

New projector should be here Thursday. Fairly painless process thus far. Fingers crossed.

I received the replacement today. It's like night and day. So far, so good. No double lines and the pattern lines are white, not red and green.

Last night the projector prompted an Auto Iris Error. I guess this one is going back. frown.gif
