Why does the Operation Timer show five hours more than the Lamp Timer? My projector shows equal number of hours.

Indeed, the up-converters in the Sony 4K projectors are superb. However, the reason you say that up-converted 1080p is sometimes preferable to native 4k is that, most of the time, streamed content is...

It looks to me like the PJ has been seriously damaged. It's also an older production model (manufactured on 04-2014). When I was trying to get a 500ES for me I swapped three units due to bad warm-up...

Ouch! Not good to get such an expensive unit and not check it for months after the purchase. Sony might not even want to fix it, if not bought from an authorized dealer.

I had three 500ES and one 1100ES projectors. All had a softer focus issue on the left side, but for the 1100ES the problem is virtually imperceptible. Your case seems to be a tad more on the serious...

Yeah! That's why I decided to bite the bullet, get the 1100ES and forget about the 500ES. The 1100ES is in a total different league from both quality and $$$ perspectives. No warm-up convergence...

To avoid losing any sharpness due to interpolating between pixels, since the convergence adjustment acts in 0.1 pixel increments, try to adjust the convergence in steps of 10, i.e. 10, 20, 30, such...

This is similar to the three 500ESs that I kept on changing because of this issue. In the end, I bit the bullet and replaced the 500ES with an 1100ES. The latter does not have this issue.

I could never have said this better. When I fire up my 1100ES, I'm in Heaven. No other technology could reach the film-like picture appearance of SXRD. For someone like me, who uses the HT for...

The 1100ES does not have any similar warm-up convergence or colour uniformity issues. However, I noticed a very interesting phenomenon:
