I have an Infocus 4805; but this is more of a "general thread" so I'm posting it here.


I've been playing with the focus ring. I focused using the splash screen at PJ startup, then I fine tuned with still images (DVD paused)...but I can't make up my mind if it's perfect or not.


Some scenes look great, others i'm thinking "it looks a little fuzzy."


How can I REALLY focus the thing? I have the AVIA DVD, but there's nothing on there for "focus" per se.


I tried using one of the crosshatch patterns, but that didn't work out too well. I found I did better with a paused DVD image.


Any advice? Thanks. :)

I usually check the focus by turning on closed captioning. Works for me and does a good job.

on my 4805, i like to use the onscreen menu text for focusing.


hit menu, go into system settings


then check/uncheck rear/ceiling and you can place the menu in all four corners this way.


those nice, perfectly clean internally generated non-anti-aliased fonts in the menus make a GREAT focus test!

I recently read someone on this forum, who suggested to use binoculars in order to defocus the Pj a little. I haven't tried this myself, but I don't see why you wouldn't be able to use the same for focusing. Just focus the binoculars on a pixel structure, and make sure that it's perfect.

Small binoculars or have an assistant turn the focus ring while you have your nose up to the screen. PJ on screen menu's that have white lines/outlines so you can see the pixel boxes clearly.
