Bright band of light appears during lighter scenes!
I have a Sanyo XW-15 and it has a bright band running vertically across its projected image (roughly 1/12 of total image is affected). It is not noticeable in dark scenes but becomes more visible the brighter the image becomes. I sent it in for servicing but the technician did not see the bright band. He said it might be the source. I hooked it up to my laptop and saw the same problem. Obviously, its the projector. Can anyone tell me they have had a similar problem or knows what it is likely causing this? Can I do anything myself through the service menu or should I call to have it sent back, again? I also have the vertical banding (that appears especially in light gray scenes) that seems to be a widespread problem with a lot of lcd projectors. Does one have to spend $10,000 for perfection? Is it this forum that makes me see all the imperfections or is this just part of the joy of using a Projector for movie viewing? Thanks for any response.
