Spoke to a Sony engineer today and he said it was most likely a connection problem to the prism block or d--- mirrors generally caused by "transport damage". My wife had previously mentioned that the noddy delivery chap had wandered up to the house carrying the very clearly marked box (with sony projector splashed all over it and handle with care and this way up) by one hand and swinging it like a briefcase.
