Is that true or they blowing smoke? Cause I have a few days left that I can take the thing back if they are lieing. But he also said I would have the same problem with a projector so I don't know what to do.
There is an adjustment in the back to change the rotation of the picture. I had to fix this when I had my image unit replaced.
i don't know where in this thread, or one of the others, it has scans of the manual showing how to fix it.
Basically remove the back cover (and lamp cover). Tape down the switch by the lamp allowing you to power on the set. I then went to the overscan image in the service menu (it help if there are 2 people, 1 to adjust and one to watch the picture). There are 2-3 (I don't recall) screws on the top plate by the lamp that need to be loosened to allow the adjustment, and there are 2 bolts facing each other on the bottom left near the lamp, look kinda like this: D=||=D that are set against a plastic block in the middle. Loosen one then "tighten" the other to move the block left/right to rotate the image. When you get it where you want, tighten the other screws (being careful not to move your image) and put the set back together, removing the tape from the switch.
