I guess this is normal for HS20 owners, but maybe my unit is too far out. I think it's about 2 pixels out on the right and up one on the green panel. Should I send it back? Thanks.

Here's a picture of the upper left of the screen. The post before this has a picture on the right of the screen. Please let me know what you think. Thanks.

Hmm, that does look a bit excessive. IMHO, 2 pixels is more than I would accept. Especially when you've in addition got 1 pixel alignment problems vertically.

I'd send it back- I did so last week w/ my unit, for slightly less what's evident from your pics.


Be prepared to front the shipping to them and wait upwards of 2 weeks (they say 10 days but I don't believe it). I'm still waiting for them to send the unit back or even contact me. I really hope they send it well protected and via air mail, I mean what's the point if the alignment is again skewed during transport? :rolleyes:

Thanks for the opinions. I got an RA number and will be sending it back. The only downside is the company won't be getting anymore until mid Feb.

Someone mentioned that sony glues on the lcd panels in the HS20 :rolleyes: so your unit shouldn't get misaligned during transport. But as for arriving broken, thats another story.

I believe that my projector is also out of alignment, but when I watch movies, I can't see any problems with mis-alignments, and I'm fairly picky about video quality. I just don't see it as a problem (in my case). PLUS, if I take it back, I take the risk of getting a new projector with dead or stuck pixels!

The only proper way I know of the check panel alignment is to use a crosshatch pattern on the Avia disk or other test dvd. Looking at your images with no signal it's impossible to tell. But if I was to guess I think it look's more than acceptable.


Everyone owning a projector should have at least one test DVD for setup, basic calibration and looking for problems such as panel alignment.

Oh yeah, I also have two stuck pixels. One is blue and one is is green in the middle section of the screen. I can't see them at normal viewing distance. The screen is 100" diagonal, viewing at 17 ft. So I guess my projector is missalligned and has 2 stuck pixels. Just thought I'd mention that.

The built in Sony focus pattern (basically a Hash type) allows to one to see mis-convergence w/o any additional software.
