Hello - I've searched the forums and haven't had much luck finding this issue, so I figured I'd create a new post.
We've been wanting to buy a projector for our movie room and after lurking in these forums for a few days, reading as many reviews as possible, we purchased the Optoma HD131Xe from Amazon. It arrived on Monday and today we opened the box, set it on a table in our movie room and tried to get it working - just projecting to the wall (screen is due to arrive on Tuesday)..
Initially, we hooked up our dvd player, but nothing happened. It didn't project on to the wall (we pushed several buttons trying to get it to work :). What appeared to be a small menu did show up, but it wasn't legible, the area was obscured by horizontal lines.
We had our laptop, so we decided to hook that up, since we knew it was working. It did in fact display the computer screen fully across the wall, but that too was obscured by several static horizontal lines (see attached image - disregard the red, that's the wall).
We're really baffled by this.
Thanks in advance.
