So far Sony say it’s within parameters
Mine is the same way, and I'd love to hear from other people whether that is just normal for this PJ. I contacted Sony, and they said it should not
be like that. But then again, the Sony guy also said there was no way to fix the awful convergence that my PJ came with, so I have little faith in what their techs say.
The attached image shows how the convergence was on mine as it arrived (this is an "=" sign in large font in Notepad). Text anywhere on the screen had this problem.
I spent an hour or so adjusting the convergence after I found the setting myself ("Panel Alignment" in the Installation menu), and now it looks pretty good. But for how long...
So my question is this: Should I exchange this projector for a new one? I've only had it for one week, and I have approval to send it back to Sony for a replacement. But I'm told that turnaround will be a couple of weeks, and who knows what the next one will be like. Are there any known negatives to just using it as it is now that I've fixed the convergence? I'm worried about whatever strain/etc... I'm putting on the system that will lead to future issues (even just having to reconverge it once in a while). I'd rather go without it for 2 weeks now then have ongoing issues for the rest of the time I have it...
I'd really value other people's input here. Thanks!
