Can some one please help!

Recently, while watching a a movie. This only occurs during a dark scene with a bright white lite. such as an explosion or a simply a light. I thought it was the projector, but i got a replace meant through Espon and it is still doing this. Thinking it is a setting or something.. Did this while watching a blue ray and when watching tv though a verizon box. Everything is going through a pioneer 1021 receiver, then through HDMI to projector. I'm thinking it's the receiver.. but not sure[IMG

So far,
switch HDMI cables.
unplugged equipment to reset.


Equipment:
Epson 3010
Pioneer VSX 1021
Pioneer BDP 140

Looks like a camera artifiact to me. For some reason this blue lens flare has gotten fashionable or something recently. It's even possible this was actually specifically added or enhanced during post production. The recent TV show "Saving Hope" was notorious for this.

Super 8, along with another recent JJ Abrams film, Star Trek, is also pretty notorious for the use of lens flare.

While watching Taken 2 last night on an Epson projector we noticed the same thing. I was concerned it might be the new projector or the new Denon receiver, so I started troubleshooting after the movie was over. We were watching a rented movie from FIOS so I just ran an HDMI from the cable box to a TV and sure enough, the big blue line was still there.

Not a big fan of the apparent over use of the blue lens flare....
