Bought a used Projector, it's got issues
I bought a used Epson EH-TW3200 Projector yesterday.
Hooked it up for the first time today, and I notice that on the right side I have a blue-ish glow and on the left side there is a faint red-ish glow.
I then put some Black and white squares up and noticed that there were thin lines of different colors on all the edges of the black squares.
Tried resizing, and moving the image around on the wall, but it remains the same.
Tried taking the bulb out and putting it back in, no change.
From what I could gather from the interwebs, Left/right side glows are because of heat damaged polarizer filters and top/bottomn glow is because of unaligned bulb?
might be the other way around?
Is this someting I can fix or should I return the projector? The guy I bought it from lives 3hrs away, inc. ferry, I have tried to contact him, but he hasn't answered...
thing cost me 800USD, 1015hrs used including 90" screen, (1290USD new).
