    I have this strange issue which started yesterday, my projector has a bunch of 'bands' where the color appears to be not converging properly (this is the best way I can describe it).

    Hello all, first post here but I've been reading some discussions in the past weeks. I recently returned the Optoma HD141X to Amazon, after 8 months of use.
