I've went to the pattern settings, with color R, R/G/B, then adjust with the UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT buttons....but I don't see a difference. Am I pressing it wrong?
I recently posted in the 5020 thread on my experience with panel alignment which applies equally to your 5030:
My advice, after trying both methods is to totally ignore the corners and intersections in the LCD alignment process.
Instead, identify what your problem is from any image with easy to identify pixel structure. The Epson's menus are good for this.
Then simply apply your pre-calculated adjustment equally to all four corners in the alignment process.
Note that until you have done that to all four corners, it doesn't seem to be working.
According to historical threads for this projector's lineage, a value of 8 equals one whole pixel.
I.E. If you want to move the red line down a pixel, apply a Vertical + 8 to all four corners in the alignment process for red.
If you do anything else, such as changing each intersection or corner to make each area look good whilst doing the alignment, you are forcing the Epson to apply scaling, potentially with a different ratio in each area of the screen.
In my experience doing that lowered the overall sharpness of my image.
Following the 'all four corners the same in multiples of 8' method I now have great alignment with uniform sharpness.
The crucial post for me to change my alignment method was in the 5010 thread @ http://www.avsforum.com/t/1377321/official-epson-powerlite-home-cinema-5010-6010-thread/930#post_21631035
