We were watching a movie tonight and just noticed that there is a thin black line running across the entire width of the screen on the RED tube only. I can't imagine what it can be from.


Anybody? Help!

A quick PS - both the RGB in and BNC (line) in show the same line. Damn. That would have been a bit easier, I think.

I just took the cover off and fooled around with some switches.


The "tilt" switch turns the black horizontal line off and on.

It's caused by too much correction. Try reducing keystone. The best approach is to properly set up the projector. This has been covered lots of times before. A quick search will reveal various threads and answers to this issue. There's nothing wrong with the projector, you are just pushing it a bit too much.

MAN it must be pushed very hard because I have messed with mine to the extreams and have never seen that one !


Yea, I support TINMANS assesment, these machines are rock solid if they are set up correctly from the get go. I never took much time with my first 1031Q and it needed constant attention. I retubed my second unit and it is now MINT all around. After retubing I had no choice but to set everything up 100% and now the results speak for them self!


Check and recheck that you are at the correct throw and the screen is at the right position for the deflection angle so that you are not pushing keystone to the max!

p.s. the pot if i recall was on the convergence board,it was not a convergence pot for RGB...i don't think...beleive it was too the top of the white plastic that surrounds the convergence pots...

I used the "magic pot" (read: NOT funny grass) and things look great!


Thanks again, folks!

Thanks for the tips guys!


I found the "magic pot" on my 2030.

Does anyone know how it works?


Since I changed lenses to HD-144s the whole contraption tilts forwards ( these glass-suckers are heavy but good ) and I have to correct a lot.


Maybe it's time to get a better mounting device.
