Just thought I would share this info, in case anyone is having similar issues. Projector is on a shelf I built, open in the front and back. Screen is a 120" Elite-something.
#1) Defocus issue, loud auto iris.
#2) Red bar on top
#3) Blue bar on bottom
#4) Red bar on top - still have this unit...need to call for replacement.
The bar develops, it seems around the 400hr mark on the lamp. Starts as a faint red line, about 10 pixels high, across the length of the picture. The bar seems to keep growing in height over time, until I get annoyed enough to call in for a replacement. I'm not sure if its a lamp or panel issue.
