Then run a small HDMI cable from the plate to the projector.
I believe the ceiling mounted wall plate is a good idea, and possibly could help.. however, when you do a straight run cable, same 22 guage, and curve it slightly before plugging in the HDMI , there is negligible weight placed on the input. The weight of the cable is up in the ceiling. You have maybe 12" max from the ceiling to the PJ input. This is the same type setup most of the retailers that sell units use.
The question, I believe, was HDMI inputs being pushed in. I just can't picture, having seen the inner workings of the unit, how anything other than some units having either a different internal set up than mine or some units having an assembly problem during the manufacturing process.
I'm going to take mine down tonight and double check it.. I'll reinforce if I think I need to.. this kind of problem could bring a unit to a standstill quickly..
