Anyone else know of issues with the Epson 3010 where it is fuzzy on one side of the screen by perfectly clear on the other? I am not using keystone.

If you physically move your projectors front side does the focus change? Is your projected image perfectly square in the screen?

How out fuzzy are you talking about?

What kind of screen do you have? Is it flat and level?

I cant really move the projector too much to test as it is mounted on the ceiling. The image is perfectly square in the screen. I am using a Elite Saber 120. It is flat and level on the wall.

It is not horrible, but it is noticeable. The left is crisp and clear and the right appears like the drunk text on tshirts. It is only noticeable with text.

Probably a bad lens. I went through four of the Epson 3010 refurbs recently to get one sort of good projector. The auto iris is never quit.

Update: I shifted the entire projector about a quarter inch to the left and realigned the screen and its much better now. I guess I was not exactly in the center and was turning the projector slightly.

maybe is a optic problem, i have the 3010 and looks very sharp in the center, but going to the sides,looks a little soft. I dont have a edge to edge full focus and im tired of people saying that issue is not noticeable in video and only in text....so whats the meaning of full hd? a focus loss is the worst enemy for HD. I want to open my pj and take out the lens, i see some holes around the lens that maybe can focus the left and right of the image better, but im affraid of getting it worse.
